vintage coastal flowers






Maybe it's winter.. but I haven't been very motivated to do anything much in this place, let alone anything that's blog-worthy. The ironing is overflowing in the corner, my desk is covered in things, the paperwork is piling up on the dining room table. Sound familiar?





Just when i was wondering what to post about my partner walked in the door with a bucket full of beautiful camelias from a friend's place. Where to put them all? I don't have much in the way of vases, but i do have lots of sea glass colour vintage bottles, recycled jars and some vintage jugs.
  




The mantel was decluttered and cleared of driftwood boats, shells and beach pebbles to make way for some vintage coastal floristry.





Thinking this look would be just right for an outdoor wedding.. I'm imagining mismatched vintage chairs, long trestle tables with flowers in vintage bottles, lots of recycled jars with tea lights down the centre of the tables and fairy lights strung from tree branches above. Something simple you could do yourself without a lot of fuss or expense.





Have a great week.

  2. Were you trying to describe my cottage in that first paragraph? I think you forgot to mention piles of books on the bedroom floor! Those pink camelias are gorgeous, it almost makes me miss winter. I said "almost", come back sun!

    whatever is handy. No fuss-like this.

  7. That looks so pretty and simple and more fun to create than tackling the ironing!

  8. Yes it does sound familiar. I guess hibernating in Winter is for a reason. Lovely camellias. They seem really good this year.
