The 10 Minute/No Cost Flower Arrangement...It's Daffodil Delightful!

 I have had a sad little dining table for months...nothing pretty front center...just a barren white round table.  Well, truth be told it's usually strewn with mail and what-nots that pile up there on a daily basis.  Until now!  I put together this super quick and easy arrangement today with elements that I already had around the house and some freshly sprouted daffodils...


To think I had come close to buying centerpiece type items that would have just cost money, when I already had everything I needed...shame, shame on me!
 

Always remember to shop your house first guys and dolls!

The basket is from IKEA {of which I have a love/hate relationship with}, jars are vintage masons, and the fabric is a napkin from Pier 1.


Look...something new I learned how to do in Photoshop...a color bar!

If you want to try making one of these fun color bars, The Coffeshop Blog makes it super easy, just go {HERE}

XO,
Stacey

P.S.  Being easily distracted into making flower arrangements and playing in Photoshop is why I am probably not going to EVER finish my bathroom!

Love it...Simple clean and country chic. I always shop my house. Perhaps moving things too much. I exhaust myself. Yes it is hot. We turned the air on? Oye, what will it be like this summer....smiles...Renee

I know you've always got to have to coolest things around - you probably never need to shop again!

I love mason jars and the blue is so fresh and springy!

Now, stop staring at your flowers, and get into that bathroom!
