Brown Vase

By Irishkate  
A new vase (Charity shop of course) which inspired the use of beech leaves
and some Alstromeria which M & S had reduced! Can't call me high maintenance!
Many thanks for vs & cs for To Sleep, Perchance to Dream and special thanks to my daughter Clare (CLARECUM)
for her User Award - nepotism I know!
I take your point those of you who suggested a different background but another member of the group brought the starry fabric which was black & silver on the reverse side. I'd have chosen it but Skye wanted the coloured stars and who can deny a star in the making?

A wonderfully composed floral centre piece, one which has both balance and beauty. The processing has been done sympathetically allowing the image to be observed without unnecessary distraction. Furthermore the piece has been very well presented.

nicely presented image ,and after looking at the price of vases the other week I not blame you for buying from a charity shop , at least you helping some charity by buying recycled goods , and not putting money into some big company that avoid paying tax Smile
