Running with scissors

On my attempt to teach myself how to arrange flowers ( just planning ahead on how I can save money for the three weddings I have to pay for) This is why I have gardening shears in my jogging stroller. I have cut these different things on walks and from some neighbors plants and bushes. I did buy the fake sticks in the back because I think I would have fallen in the lake if I would have cut the real ones.
I was so excited to find this flat door basket since my front door has a glass door on it. I had been looking since we moved her and was thrilled to find it for $15.00. If you want to hang a basket on a door or have a glass front door it saves great space.

and this title should really be walking fast with scissors.. I have been such a slow poke lately.

Very nice arrangement, I love it that you're teaching yourself how to do that and that you carry gardening shears in your stroller!

How funny you keep scissors with you. Maybe I should actually do that. I am not one to be able to arrange flowers very well. Yours looks great! How long did they take to dry once you cut them?

So pretty! I love it and wish I had even a small talent for such things!

The basket is very cute! I would love to do something like that. Do you ask your neighbors first, or just sneak them? :) You should look into a flower arranging course through your local adult ed. That would be such a fun class to take. I always wanted to take that class while at BYU.

That is a great talent to have. Sometimes I think that I can do something like that, so I buy the silk flowers at the store and make the attempt. Sometimes it works and sometimes is doesn't, but it's fun to try. By the way I love those fake sticks...where I come from we call those cat tails. I have some in a vase next to the wood stove. Savannah found them the other day and seems to like the taste of them. Once they are opened the insides fluff out like a cats tail when it is frightened. Kinda cool!

This arragement is awesome. Well done. I just love it. I wish I had the skills. It would, like you said, be very useful in the future if I did. Of course I have never felt comfortable arranging flowers.
