The callas are hanging on from last week. I change the water every other day and I've trimmed the stems twice. The tablecloth is an Ikea fabric, of course.
I couldn't resist these giant snowy white chrysanthemums. (I could not for the life of me figure out how to spell chrysanthemum just now, which immediately made me think of Anne and Gilbert in the spelling bee. Do you remember that scene?)
That clock is from the flea market. It's amazing. The numbers are actually on little flaps and they flip around as the time changes.
i've started buying weekly flowers! do you think they should be kept near sunlight or is that unnecessary?ReplyDelete
The chrysanthemums are absolutely gorgeous. I remember my mom used to read me a book about a little mouse name Chrysanthemum when I was little. That brings back good memories. :)ReplyDelete
what a nice clock! :DReplyDelete
on of my favorite scenes! and such lovely shots!ReplyDelete
what beautiful flowers!ReplyDelete
and I love the clock. My dad used to have one just like it in his office.
Oh Anne. She is the reason I CAN spell chrysanthemum.ReplyDelete
my mom and dad had that clock in their bedroomReplyDelete
Have a lovely weekend!
I use to have that same clock-I loved it!ReplyDelete
Flowers are still looking great. That choclate cake is still heavy on my mind! Have a fab weekend!
i think white flowers always look so sweet and classic. those are stunning!ReplyDelete
These are lovely.ReplyDelete
Your house always looks so clean. How do you do it?!
Pretty flowers. My parents have a clock like that, and I think they've had it since before I was born. I used to love sitting there watching the clock flip.ReplyDelete
I love those clocks! The yogurt jar is getting lots of use:)ReplyDelete
Love that table cloth! The flowers look gorgeous on it!ReplyDelete
white flowers = instant class.ReplyDelete
I am in love with your comment about Anne & Gilbert and the spelling bee. That is what I think of, too, every time I need to spell chrysanthemum.ReplyDelete
Anne provides a commentary for every situation in life (much like the Godfather for men--or so You've Got Mail tells us...)ReplyDelete
Huge grin on my face due to the Anne reference. I heart Anne.ReplyDelete
I really need to buy some flowers!!ReplyDelete
Your flower corner is so lovely! It makes me want to go clip some flowering herbs from the garden. I love the coziness and life that flowers bring to a home.ReplyDelete
Rachel, you always have the prettiest posts about flowers. I love the bouquets you put together-so pretty!ReplyDelete
Hope you have a wonderful weekend :)
pretty pretty flowers once again.ReplyDelete
That ikea fabric is the one I can't stop thinking about. Unfortunately we don't have Ikea in nz :(
I LOVE FLAP-CLOCKS!ReplyDelete
Aaaah! I spy the vintage clock from your comment :) I LOVE flip clocks but they always seem to elude me. Yours is just fantastic!ReplyDelete
I usually just say "mum" since I can never remember the correct spelling for chrysanthemum... and I'm a floral designer, so I really should know it. But yes, every time I hear that word I definitely think of Anne Shirley and the spelling bee. ;-)ReplyDelete
The world would be so much better if it had more Anne of Green Gables in it. I swears to God, I loved those books so much.ReplyDelete
I've never seen cala lilies that color before! They look so cute in the yogurt jar that you must never return to Whole Foods.
It may be your blog, or maybe another, Im not sure. But I have never kept fresh flowers in my room until recently when I started visiting my favorite blogs, and seeing all the wonderful images, like the ones above. They really brighten up my window, and seem to give the whole room and myself, a bit of joy and carefreeness.ReplyDelete
oh wow. your flower displays always inspire me so. and that is one of my favorite movie scenes ever! that movie has been in my head for the past two days and i have a great need to watch it soon.ReplyDelete
ps. even though my comments don't show it, i have been following your blog all summer, rachel. it is one of my most favorites. your photography is stunning. thanks for posting pretty things and brilliant ideas.
Good news for those of us lacking in the spelling department....this type of chrysanthemum is commonly referred to as a "China mum". I can spell that every time! :)ReplyDelete
wow, you've gotten your mileage out of those flowers - they still look great!ReplyDelete
Love that picture with the old clock. I've scrolled down and looked at a few of your posts - lovely photos and writing! So happy to have found my way over here...ReplyDelete
I can't spell crysanth... crystanthamum... however it's spelled either! I just used one for a charm on a new Soc Chic necklace and had to spell check the whole time.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a good weekend!
I love your blog! And I love Anne and Gilbert! I just re read the entire series last summer. Brilliant.ReplyDelete
These flowers are amazing. So colorful and lifelike. Simply Gorgeous! What a great idea. Your flowers are beautiful. I'm so glad I found this. i wish people would buy more flowers for one another.ReplyDelete
