Cute Summer Centerpiece!

Hope you all had a great weekend!
We spent a few hours building some benches for the deck at my Mom's house!

If you had asked me 20 years ago if I could imagine doing woodworking projects with Mr. S...I would have been laughing pretty hard!  But we actually do pretty well together as long as I let HIM do the measuring....

Of course I forgot to take pictures of the new benches...but maybe Mom will do that for me...HINT HINT MOM!

I thought you might like to see this cute little Summertime Centerpiece!


 




I grow wheat grass for Smoothies that I make in the VitaMix.
I cut the grass....
 the new mown smell was amazing!








I got out some of the little green flower thingies you use to keep roses fresh...I always save them....but you can actually buy them at craft stores.






Then out to the garden to pick some Dahlia blooms that have pretty short stems....


I filled the green thingies with water....added the flower....tucked it into the dirt!
That was yesterday and they still look pretty fresh!  

Actually, I got this idea from the centerpieces at my nephew's wedding a couple of years ago....
they had similar glass containers with Gerbera Daisies..
I couldn't find any photos of these either....
but there are lots of great photos of similar arrangements on the Internet...

Since I always seem to catch Marvin munching on the grass, I was quite amused to find this photo....
















So TRUE!!!!




















Have A Great Day!
