To Keep Up and Reserve for Personal or Special Use: Save

Here's the dining room table. Adorned with garage sale salt and pepper shakers, thrift store table cloth, candles, and flowers from my garden. The flowers are representative.

From WikiAnswers:
The Hydrangea is a Chinese flower and represents expressing love, gratitude and enlightenment. It is a good choice of flower to give as a gift.

From Symbolism Wiki:
Garlic is a symbol of courage and strength.


  1. Lovely! Your arrangement reminds me of ixia, my very favorite flower shop:

  2. That's garlic?
    I've been mashing, sauteing and roasting it for thirty years and I've never seen how it grows.

  3. Those are such BEAUTIFUL flowers - I hope to have a garden too, one day.

  4. Lovely and informative post. I liked it. Thanks for coming over. I'll be back again soon.

  5. my hydrangia is just starting to bloom. i'm a little worried about it, since it is in a pot. but it looks fine and happy, so i think it will be okay. next year, though, i think it will need a bigger pot.

  6. I love how pretty it all looks. I want to steal your salt and pepper shakers. My plan is to start buying them at garage sales and keeping my glitter in them!!
