It's that time of the month again!

It's been a busy week - so I haven't been able to do any crafting this week - apart from the bag that is.

It's the last Friday in the month - which means it's a flower arranging afternoon.  It's a bit of a trek - and I often don't feel like going - but since I have it has done me a (flower) power of good, and I am always really glad that I made the effort afterwards

I used to do a lot of flower arranging - most weeks in fact, and I loved collecting flowers and foliage from my garden - but it fell by the wayside when I had to stay out of the sun.  But it's great to be back doing it.

It ensures that at least once a month, I have a nice display in my home.

I thought this was lacking something so I added the candle and wrapped a bit of the pink wire around it to colour co-ordinate it.  Not sure that I will light it though - I like them lit in the winter!

I have taken lousy photos - it was all a bit of a rush as I had to start cooking for visitors the weekend

It does smell lovely and looks more colourful in daylight

Your floral arrangements are beautiful and I am so glad you share them with us. No fresh flowers in my home as my furchild kitty eats them and then "gives them back" to me. Happy creating...

That is SO pretty! I can't do flower arranging at all and have resisted learning how in case they make me do the flowers at church .... I'm scared of the flower mafia!
