This is what I came home to the other day, the hubby trying his hand at flower arranging in an old antique metal petroleum jug.
He was even thoughtful enough to take a few pictures for me (knowing how I need photos for my blog.
This old petroleum jug we picked up a few years back at a yard sale, and it had been sitting in the flower bed at the other house.
We brought it with us when we moved but we just haven’t decided what we wanted to do with it yet, so it was just sitting there alone, looking very lonely when the hubby decided to clean it up, add some flowers, and bring it into the living room.
Ever since he discovered the flower stems that light up he has been wanting one.
Isn’t it a wonderful thing when your spouse supports you in all your creative adventures, and he himself even enjoys creating things himself?
He puts most of his creativity into the house, for example the Breakfast nook remodel. Look at the ceiling and the crown molding.
Wait till you see the post on the table he made. He did an awesome job!
Jugs for arranging flowers are simple pots because they usually have a narrow top and a slightly wider base that supports the flower stem. Bleaching cut flowers with bleach is one of the secrets to keeping your flower arrangements fresh and longer. It also helps keep your water from getting cloudy and stops bacteria from growing, both of which can lose the freshness of your flowers.
