Purple Transferware Wall Display and Floral Arrangements

The purple transferware collection I have amassed is displayed in our dining room.
The latest bowl was picked up at Matthew Mead's Estate Sale last weekend, and it 
is a piece made by Wedgwood.  Quite old and it bears a few chips, it is lovely nonetheless
and for now it sits in a stand where I can admire it front and center.  It was the only piece I 
spotted and I was surprised to even find it at his sale, as I know he has a fondness for the purple
stuff himself.  His mother has a purple transferware dinner set herself, and Matthew grew up dining 
off of these pretty dishes, as I am doing now with my kids and family.  
 Since the wedding has passed, so have all of the beautiful floral arrangements, and I 
have to say I really missed having the gorgeous bouquets in our rooms.  I think flowers bring
a room to life, and I can tell you they are the number one decorating weapon for magazine and book
photo shoots.  The rooms look lifeless without them.  I found myself in Trader Joes and picked up 
 two separate bouquets that had the color purple in common. One even had a stalk of decorative kale
and pincushion flowers, and you just can't beat the price at Trader Joes.  So treat yourself and your
rooms with a bouquet and get a lift everytime you walk by....I know I do. 
 The floral arrangements for our DIY wedding were not DIY, but I think I could have 
made a good effort if I had needed to do so.  Either way, the table was lifeless without the flowers, and when I saw these pics I snapped the morning of the wedding. They were loaded in my camera
and I haven't seen them since.  I think the tables looked so pretty.  

So don't forget to treat yourself to some flowers, whether its the 
supermarket or a florist or your own backyard.
Heading into the weekend with this "tip".  
Get flowers. Enjoy. Relax.
