Last Of The Roses

It is supposed to rain here for the next week, so I thought I would go out and bring in the last of my roses so they wouldn't get all ruined in the rain. Here they are in a tarnished silver pitcher, sitting in a neat old wooden bowl. I snagged the cute tray today from my friend Ester. She told me it is made from an old table top and she added the handles. I LOVE it. Added some acorns and candles to a couple of goblets and walah, I have a center piece. It needs a bit more fluffing, but I am liking it for now. What do you think?


  1. I am in love with tarnished silver pieces. Isn't it funny that they always make a big deal about how nice it will clean up while we are like no, I WANT it like this :)


  2. Oh my goodness - your roses are beautiful!! I wish I had a green thumb, but my honey swears that I can kill artificial plants!

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog!

  3. I also love the look of tarnished silver and those roses look just gorgeous in there. Beautiful display!

  4. What a lovely display. I love flowers in old silver. Your roses are so big!

  5. Those roses are a beautiful display in your lovely 'tarnished' pitcher. I guess we can say "tarnish" is the new "in". I'm your newest follower. Drop by when you can. http://decoratingwcents.blogspot.com/

  6. It's raining here, and I wish I'd done what you did. I should have gathered the last few roses that are still blooming. Yours are so beautiful in the silver pitcher.
