I am getting a 'tad' bit braver
at designing and creating my own floral arrangements.
Beginning in January 2015,
"Mr. Ed" and I started the renewal
of On Crooked Creektt's 1970's Ranch Style Home.
While we switched out some furniture
from the lower level Family Room up to the upper level Living Room (here),
I still was using the same art work and floral from the previous design.
Continuing with our 2015's Project #5 (here), came the change of paint color.
I absolutely adore Sherwin~Williams Sandbar hue in the upper level living areas!
A soft neutral taupe which changes from taupe~to grey~to green
depending on the time of day and the type of weather.
Once this paint went on, I knew I had to change out the art work
above the heirloom vintage sewing machine cabinet.
This print of snow~capped mountains and waterfall is one of my favorites.
While the faux Shasta Daisies and the blooming faux tree branches
worked from Spring~to~Summer, I wanted some Shades of White
that would work through On Crooked Creektt's entertaining Holiday schedule.
During the heat of Summer,
"Mr. Ed" and I found these Cherry Blossom stems, Magnolia Bush blossoms
and Curly Willow branches on a fantastic $ale at our local Kirklands.

My purchases were:
* Three Magnolia Bush Stems.
* Four Cherry Blossom Stems.
* Three Curly Willow Branches
I set up the card table in Studio One
and filled it with all the necessary floral pieces.
I had "Mr. Ed" remove the decorative cones from the wall.
I hung them using an "S" hook on the primitive cabinet door.
I began with filling the largest cone with the Curly Willow branch
and one of the Magnolia Stems.
I added the second Magnolia Bush stem and the second Curly Willow branch. . .
Followed by two of the Cherry blossom stems.
The largest cone contains:
Two Curly Willow branches.
Two Cherry Blossom stems
Two Magnolia Bush stems.
I followed the same procedure for the smaller of the decorative cones.
The smaller cone contains:
One Curly Willow branch.
One Cherry Blossom stem.
One Magnolia Bush stem.
Once "Mr. Ed" re~hung them on the Living Room wall,
I spread some of the Magnolia Bush blossoms to fill the void spaces in the cones.

I adore how the Shades of White compliment the art work
and will transition easily into On Crooked Creektt's
2015 Holiday color palette!
Until next time. . .
