I like to have a little container of flowers by the kitchen sink. It might seem frivolous, but I spend a lot of time there! Also, the kitchen sink is a magnet for guests, so I want it to look nice.
My mom found this darling blue & white piece (I think it is a covered sugar from a child's tea set) for just this purpose. I snipped a rose, salvia (look how it is in focus) and ginger mint from the garden and voila! It looked so pretty with the sun streaming in on it.
Now that Fall is here, I am going to rely on the supermarket for a fresh flower now and then. A girl's gotta have color, right?
