Tale of Boutonniere and Arrangements

Bygone Treasure of Vases
How do we call a beautiful day, when you come home to find fresh flowers presented in the old elegant vintage vases.  The arrangement boost your energy and restore your tiredness. Old dated vases are not even needed to display flower arrangements.  They can also be cast in their own artistic ornate manner, set on an old table by the window or an old suitcase used as table with or without flowers.
 
Period vases are forged from a diversity of substances and materials inclusive of glass, porcelain, ceramic and metal.  Not forgetting that also wooden vases that have been a beauty in floral arrangement for decades in the homes, were treated to prevent them from becoming rotten. Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco and Art Nouveau antique vases are all sorts of genre in the approach style of antiques.
History of Jardiniere
 
In all respect of the olden days craftsmanship has illustrated the unfolding of human civilisation. The vases in their shapes and frameworks are meditative of these. Crafted to aspire the decoration of flowers in the home.  The depiction and mastery of vases have transformed at an end, a creativity shaped in their own desire, from ancestral shaped vases to more present day vintage vases.

They Are Still Beautiful In Their Vintage Rustic Manner!

When The Past Was Pre-Loved And Lost Its Owner
We all have heard that the past is a good place to visit!  There are many wonders from “then” that have been forgotten, and hence we think that they should be dump and let go, but there are also many beautiful aspects of the past that we don’t want to lose because they can still be re-purposed, and live with us again.  
As in my case today, I went to visit an old friend of mine who’s husband takes care of an old yard filled with lots of oldies, but goodies.  I found these two beautiful pieces of Victorian Era – Chandelier Candle Holder and Fire Place.  
I did not resist to take pictures of both pieces.  I thought it would be a great topic for my blog today. 
This is a Cast Iron Fire Place.  It is a very, very heavy object.  It has lost its senses to be loved!  Such a beauty without love!

Vintage Floral Chic and Shabby!

From Mother’s home to Old Grandmother’s House. “The Past Is always a Good Place to Visit” 

Cushions are my must have in home accessories complement                                                         005I am sharing with you a taste of my current vintage floral design.  I search for my inspiration from the interior decorative world around me and I am sure you will take a like in my cushion designs that I have for you. 

I am crazily a fanatic of cushions and the more I could talk about it, I wouldn’t let it go.  Cushions are elegant, stylish and durable.  One can make a collection of colours that will make your home looks fresh, inviting and interesting in every room in your home.  Decorating with colourful  cushions is fun.                                                                                               002 My Country Epoque adds happiness to your home, and colourful cushions with floral patterns are all just simple.  The cushions by Maude are all created “home-made” with lots of passions.

For those who loves bright, colourful floral cushions, my best advice for you is that a neutral  coloured sofa will add a touch of beauty in your room as all the colours of your cushions will add the beautiful decorative touch that you have been looking for.  When choosing your cushions , don’t go overboard with it.                                                                            006

I would imagine that we all have something that we still remember from our grandmother’s house – from an old kettle to the Lavender tea cups – and what about the vintage floral cushions on the old wooden chair, Do you remember?
