Curb Found Bouquet & A Yardsale Vase

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to say hello to my new follows, welcome! And thank you to my regular followers who've been with me for awhile, I really appreciate you and it always surprises me when someone follows my little blog. :O)

 Anywho, although it's been cold and cloudy here and teeny bit drizzly, I still managed to find a yard sale. Where there's a will, there's a way. I usually do not buy vases, because I already have too many like most people. But I fell in love with this one. And it was only 50 cents!
 And on the way home I spied a very tall white cosmos bush, pulled out roots and all. It couldn't be replanted, but the flowers were beautiful and I took pity on it sitting at the curb, going to waste. So, I took it home.
 I trimmed the flowers off when I got home and they looked perfect in my "new" vase. I think I'm definitely going grow some of these next Spring. They're like daisies, but they come with the green feathery leaves that act as it's own filler.
I grew fuchsia cosmos last Spring and Summer, but these look great with my indoor neutral decor. I love looking at this, it's amusing how a simple yard sale vase and some free flowers can be so satisfying. Sometimes it's just the simple things in life that bring happiness and I love when that happens! :O)

Love the vase, and your cosmos just reminded me that I don't remember seeing mine this year? Wonder where they disappeared to??? I totally agree with the "simple things in life" that make us happy. I am so grateful for those little simple things that happen in this crazy world of ours.

Take care, Sue

What a fantastic flower arrangement and vase!! I love it. Just goes to show that you really don't have to spend a lot of money to have a great looking arrangement. :o)
It certainly puts a smile on my face!
Fondly,

Hello I stumble your blog through Coastal charm and when I saw your photo, I immediately went outside and picked my Cosmos too. They are so beautiful and they last until late Fall. Same as you I will plant a lot of Cosmos next year. As in a lot!! I will post it in my blog too. Thanks for inspiring!

Those cosmos are so nice-makes me think of spring-and it's so long away!

Yep, cosmos are great for bringing on a quick smile -- and you ruffle-y vase is adorable.

I needed this today as we had lots of snow overnight - kind of early and I was out picking apples with the snow falling in huge clumps on my head! This makes me feel like the whole world isnt socked in and dreary.

Beautiful! Both your new vase and those great white cosmos-enjoy:@)

Love your post! It reminds me so much of visits to my brother in Encinitas, CA where every manner of flower grows in times and ways Ohio never experiences. I'm your newest follower and I'm excited to be following a fellow believer where I can feel like I'm in CA.

The vase has an unusual shape that's great for displaying the flowers...I can see why you snapped it up at a great bargain price!
I love white flowers, they add a touch of elegance to the decor.
