You know, like, see if you can throw together a simply fab dinner without running out to the market?
Or freshen up the look of a room by changing out a pillow or two?
I do this a lot.
With company coming and no time for a trip to the store, I decided to "shop" for flowers in my own garden. Not easy considering we're at the end of Summer and the blooms are looking pretty pathetic.
But somehow I managed to find a few pretties that will do.
I use my tureen a lot, it's large and makes a nice statement on my little stand in "sideboard".
I also like to fill a few pitchers and even votives with what ever I have, roses, hydrangeas, etc.
This sort of challenge is rather fun... not to mention economical ;)
