Flowers And Frogs!


The sun is out today, and I'm loving it!

It's suppose to stick around for awhile too!

The pretty roses were my inspiration for this post.

I'm enjoying buying roses right now.

The prices aren't that bad and I do appreciate them.

One of my little splurges.

I'm also enjoying using my old frogs in the vases to hold up those pretty flowers.

I want to show you some of the frogs I've collected along the way.

I'll start with the one I'm using for my pretty posies.

Here is an old photo of my father and his siblings.

A fun way to show off vintage pictures.








I have to say, "I haven't met a frog I didn't like."

So, go out there and buy yourself a beautiful bouquet of flowers and use your old frogs!

And be sure to stop and smell the flowers along the way!

PS I bought some of your little bouguets of white paper roses when I was there at Monticello-do you have more of those? Or did you order them from somewhere? I seem to think I need more!

Wow! Great frog collection. I'm always on the lookout for the ones that look like hair pins are stuck in it. Some of yours are so unique - very cool!

Debbie~ we (hubby and I) love roses! We have 150 rose bushes that outline our front yard. When they bloom the aroma is intoxicating!! I'm putting a Mothers day post of gift ideas together, one using roses.
Your collection of frogs is such a treasure. Several of which look very vintage. I would imagine as we head into full bloom, you'll have them all filled to the brim with beautiful flowers!
Farmers market downtown (Vancouver Wash) has the most stunning bouquets that I find just as irresistible as my favorite fruits!
Sweet wishes,
Sara
