I don't need to buy that urn back from my niece, Miriam!!!
I am awesome, and did an arrangement that she likes. So she will keep the urn, and all the flowers she bought from Michael's. I actually used all of them in the arrangement. So we don't need to return NOTHIN'!!!
I worked on the floral arrangement in my dining room, so she will have to come get it and bring it back to her house. Unfortunately, I won't be able to show any pictures of it in her dining room, but will show how it looked in mine.
Remember the urn? We got it a couple of weeks ago at a group antique mall (junk store) in the greater Boston area.
This was the blurry picture I took with my new phone.
Miriam emailed me a picture of how it looked on her table.....
It doesn't look half bad. Hard to believe it was only 20 smackers!!!
Here it is in my dining room, about to be transformed by my magic hands.....
First, I pulled out the ball of Styrofoam we bought at Michael's.......
Then I placed it in the urn.................
Then I pulled out all the flowers we (Miriam) bought from Michael's....
They looked much prettier than I remembered them. Who Knew??
Then I had to hack the stems down with my wire cutters. Boy what a pain in the @#$%&.
Then I stuck them in the ball in a VERY artistic manner.....
Then I realized that I hadn't cut the stems down enough. OY, OY, OY!!! So I had to pull them out and hack them down some more. Oy!
Soooooo..... I just kept cutting and sticking more in.....
And them realized the ball was too high.
So I got my serrated knife out and sliced the bottom off the ball. (This might be why some men are scared of me) (don't mess with middle aged women) (not that I don't love men) (a little ketchup, a little salt.....)
I kept sticking in flowers.....
Till I stuck them all in!!!!!
And then I mushed them around till I liked it!!!!!
What do you think??
