Simply Clean …Floral Friday

Clean, simplicity is a quality to admire. This concept has morphed into a personal craving during the early summer, this year. Maybe it’s is due, in part, because of the clutter of major current events and general feelings of frustration about 2020. Some days, I’d like to sweep everything into garbage bags and drop the stuff off at the Goodwill thrift store.

I still enjoy tinkering with floral projects, though. The hobby is a creative energy outlet and a way to keep in touch with my deeper self. It’s also a good way to express appreciation for things around the house. I like the calm feeling of acceptance that playing with floral elements engenders.

A wood vase from the “Target” store contains dried elements and paper blooms. Paperweights and feather spheres add horizontal interest to the still-life.

A Japanese vase contains a selection of tropical flowers. The plastic water and oil bubble toy is a whimsical counterpoint to the serious floral arrangement.

The cool, silvery nature of stainless steel proclaims stark, clean modernity. Faux stems with paper buds extend the illusion. A dangerously sharp stainless steel sailboat model adds balance to the composition.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes venture capitalist and lawyer Chris Sacca. “Simplicity is hard to build, easy to use, and hard to charge for. Complexity is easy to build, hard to use, and easy to charge for.”
