Can you believe I only paid $5 for that table? It belonged to my neighbor's mother, and is not in the greatest shape, but I'm all about shabby! When I bought it I thought I might paint it, but now that I see it in situ, I don't think I'll bother. I LOVE the lines of it, and it fits perfectly right in the front window, holding one of Kathleen's many bunches of flowers from Mulan.
That glass "submarine" vase is from Roost, and was an early birthday present from my father. I love it! Don't the roses look great? Oh, and the aqua colored ceramic vase behind it was $2 at a garage sale last week. Did I luck out or what?! I know!!
I just had some fun with closups...bear with me, will you? :)

Do you know I had never seen the stamen(s) of a carnation before until I looked at this photo in its large format? So cool! And I used to think carnations were boring! Look how lovely this celery green one is. I especially love that color...may have to use it somewhere in my house now!
