I have found some good deals over the years.
These roses (above and below) I got many years ago. I was taking art classes and the place has things for sale at a discount. I loved the roses and bought as many as I could. They are in two shades.
The poppies are somewhat worse for wear, but work in the place I have them between rooms.
They fit in with the colours in two rooms. I have used fake greenery in places I can not get to to water plants.
These are in a vase that was my grandmothers. They are a mix of colours but they go with my pink and green theme in the dining room. I think I got most of those flowers where I got the roses.
This next set of flowers I got at a thrift shop. They are in a brass container and the colours are in peaches and oranges and go well in the family room. They had to have been good ones when new. I could not afford to buy those new.
Then again, I buy wreaths for different things and then end up with them on the walls. Most of the things I have I have bought over a long period of time. I have them in every room, flowers or wreaths to add colour. I have house plants too but they need watering and are becoming an increasing pain in the butt. A lot of my fake stuff I use outside as well as indoors. I will always pick up good ones if I see them at garage sales or thrift stores.
I have found nice things in florist shops. In my bedrooms I have several vases that I have bought special for the room when I first decorated it. They last forever, naturally. Mostly though I have found some really good ones at garage sales. I have not photographed any of those. Maybe I will do another post later on all the others haha........or not.
