Meanderings Whilst Cleaning …Floral Friday

The ideas for today’s flower projects popped into my mind while vacuuming the living room carpeting. The thoughts were triggered by the need to temporarily move chairs so the vacuum cleaner could pick up dust bunnies and crumbs. I decided to assemble the arrangements then pair each with a different, somehow relateable object. This could be called moving mental furniture.

The first grouping brings yellows together. A yellow Gerbera daisy is rooted in the vintage Shawnee bamboo planter. A memo clip holder is festooned with a faux Gerbera for visual balance.

The “Glassroots” folded art glass vase was produced in Boulder, Colorado. It’s a recent thrift store buy, so I wanted to dress it nicely. An old Polaroid digital camera and a less old Canon digital camera flank the arrangement.

The perforated blue modern vase contains a small posy of springlike elements. The hand-carved, sandlewood elephant I purchased in Bengaluru, India compliments the airy theme.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes YouTuber, Casey Neistat. “Ideas are cheap. Ideas are easy. Ideas are common. Everybody has ideas. Ideas are highly, highly overvalued. Execution is all that matters.”

  1. That elephant loves the blue environment you created for it.

  2. Love the elephant, looks like you bought the vase to match!

      It might have been subconscious. I saw the vase at Goodwill and liked it. Later on, I remembered that the elephant was somewhere in my steamer trunk.
