Hi again friends
Just a few photos of the dried hydrangeas I got last weekend while out antiquing
I bought a bag full of them so I've been adding them here and there around my home
These are in my guest room/home office
*( I received so many comments about the little lamp, I found it at a thriftshop a few years ago for a few dollars,the shade was an inexpensive antique shop find,I then used some of my antique millinery flowers and hot glued them to the shade, Im really happy with how it came together and very inexpensive)

beautiful pastel colours

I love hydrangeas
Especially dried ones since they last so much longer
Not very "Fall" but so pretty! :)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!

Thank you all so much! :)
I actually found the little lamp at a thriftshop for a few dollars and a while later found the shade and then I added some vintage millinery flowers to it.

Yes, that little lamp is darling! The shade gives it so much character. The dried hydrangeas are not to be found in this part of the country. I love the look of them. Gorgeous! Looks like fall to me!

Candylei said...

The lamp is sweet! Hydrangeas are gorgeous. Some newer breeds bloom here until a hard frost so they are fall flowers too. ;-)

Allison said...
