Orange Zinc.

I found this table setting online (no idea where it was from, sorry!) and absolutely love love love the vase! I must find this! The overall scale, sculptural shape zinc vase, and single flower color is a terrific combination. It’s not too late to create a similar arrangement – simply bring in a clean and small outdoor zinc planter and plop in orange chrysanthemums as the plant! Easy breezy!

 

A Hoot at Z Gallerie.

Z Gallerie is back at Tyson’s Corner in Virginia. And it’s again filled with great home decor, a few new fabulous bed frames, and this white owl vase for $20! Its about 14 inches tall but would look so good filled with the last remaining green leaf branches now or a bunch of holly branches and berries at holiday time.

Can I get a hoot hoot for all of the other large eyed feather friends at the store?! They displayed  a great Thanksgiving Day table graced with our feather friends, decorative bird cages, and sculpted vases and bowls.

Marry Form and Function.

I love sculptural vases or pots. I find that most times I am drawn to the ornate, geometric, or colorful designs. However, pure white and simple sometime wins. On a flea market trip in NYC last year, I passed over a beautiful small, round, multi-colored floral pot that was being sold for $50. The guy would not take $40 so I moved on. The price tag was a bit too high for me that day (must have been dropping coin on lots of other goodies in NYC that weekend). What was I thinking! Too small? Too busy? Too much moolah? I’ve been picturing it ever since. Here are a few that make any day brighter and any flower that much more beautiful.

Still Life.

This photo was taken by moi the other day. Its a simple scaled down arrangement made from the leftover deep pink flowers that survived a week in my much larger Valentine’s Day bouquet. I love the moodiness in the image. The shadows fade beautifully and the subject of the photo has pretty shades of pink, blue and green. I have so much fun with photography and love experimenting with still life and portraiture. The small ceramic vase is by Jonathan Adler.
