Flowers in the House!

It's Monday.

It's New Year's Eve!

And, it's Flowers in the House!
These will go on the dining room table, but don't photograph well against the cherry wood.

Three reasons to celebrate today.  Sadly, nothing really blooming in the yard - altho the hellebores are trying hard and will join us in a few days.  Maybe a camellia or two, as well. 
A new vase for Christmas - you'll see lots of it in the spring, I think.

So, it's purchased poseys for me - mini-carnations in the most shocking purple and a bit of white stuff, plus the obligatory rosemary from the garden.
On the coffee table with a mirror underneath for tonight.

I do like a little bling for New Year's Eve, so have mixed silver and purple balls (not even left over from Christmas, but purchased for NYE several years ago).

Bowls of balls - just wherever!

If you haven't already been over to visit our Hostess, Jane, please hop over there and see who else is joining the party today.  It promises to be Small, but Charming!
And, Happy New Year!


  1. Pretty, pretty, love that new vase.

    Thanks for having us over, hope your evening is full of laughter and love.

  2. Happy New Year. Loving the new vase. Those carnations will last ages - perfect for Christmas. The berries I have popped in the jar are Ilex berries. Sinead

  7. adorable vase holder! where did you get such fresh carnations? Happy New Year Webb. and thanks for the good suggestions!

  8. Hi Webb,

    Hope you had a Happy New Year! Those flowers are nice. I was thinking of getting some to ring in the new year myself, but I never got around to it. Maybe I'll go and get some tomorrow since it's still January. Nothing like fresh flowers to brighten up your mood, eh?
