Happy day after the election! Regardless of whether or not you’re happy with its outcome, we can all be glad that there’s an end to the political phone calls, TV ads, and mailings, right?
So, you know how Obama rhymes with flowerama, well.. Since I’m not creative enough to find a smooth segue-way from politics to my new dried flower arrangement, I’m just going straight to it:
If the basket looks familiar, it’s because it’s one of the things that I bought at this year’s Country Living Fair.
I had originally planned to use it as a mailbox to solve the issue with our mail-shredding dog, but decided that it would probably get ruined being hung outside our front door so instead I had it filled with a dried flower arrangement and hung it in our powder room. My flower arranging skills are nonexistent, so I simply picked out the flowers that I wanted and left the arranging in the hands of the talented ladies at Botanica. They did a beautiful job putting it together:
I hung it in a spot that I find pretty tricky to decorate – over the toilet in our powder room. I guess the guys will get a bit more enjoyment out of this little arrangement than the ladies…
Not that I’m laying awake at night worrying about my over the toilet décor but after experimenting with several options that didn’t work out (framed prints, wooden keys, metal artwork), I’ve finally found something that I’m happy with. So what’s over your toilet? 🙂
