Summer's here, and I'm already thinking of ways to make the house feel cooler.
One of the ways I like to do this is with white vases and green plants.
In the entry, I used a sea urchin style vase with green and white Caladium leaves, stems of Abelia and a few sprigs of Loropetalum.
In the living room, I combined three vases on the coffee table, with books and glass paperweights.
I found these at thrift stores at different times...I'm always looking for white vases.
A seashell with faux greenery~
Don't know what to call this shape. It's just a good shape and size to use in lots of places.
Remember my little egret planter that I spray painted in this post? It's holding Hen and chicks from the yard. The Hen and chicks are just visiting, and I'll put them back in the pot outdoors, in a few days...they'll never know they'd been visiting.
Oh, here's an "arrangement" on the bookcase, but no white planter.
I had to cut back the Forsythia, because with all the rain, it had grown wild, and was hanging over onto the drive way.So, I just filled a green glass bottle with it, and added some extra Caladium leaves.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you're having a great week. Stay cool!
