This dried hydrangea stuffed dresser came quite by accident today.
My friend Torrey had a bunch of junk on the curb and she notified me to come on over and pick it over. Then on my way out I had a fabulous brainstorm to ditch this little vintage dresser standing in my way.
Well, friend #2 Corinne joined us and as we started to carry it down the road, I stopped dead in my tracks. #3 friend Janette had an amazing hydrangea bush that was bursting, and ready to be picked.
Turns out she didn’t want the blooms and had plans to prune them away. Say no more! They were mine! And that funny little dresser came right back home with me. But this time, outside.
Ok, ready? It’s about to get a little wild in these parts!
Hydrangeas gone wild.
There were too many to sit in water, so I’m crossing my fingers they’ll dry just fine as is.
The dresser actually broke. This pretty oval mirror that sits on top of the dresser use to be held by two pillars.
Galvanized goodness is hanging off the one pillar left, adding some fun height to the dresser, as well as more excuses to jam in more flowers.
Broken worked out just fine!
It’s a little crazy in a good way, isn’t it?
It’s as if the blooms are their very own waterfall of petals.
If you were watching my Instagram updates over the weekend on FJI Facebook, you would have already sighted two cool license plates. And they were perfect for this vignette.
They’re dressing up a little spool I landed a few days ago, which can easily be moved aside when it’s coffee time.
Good idea! Later!
I have a coffee date with a couple of girly license plates…
… and a ridiculously HUGE pile of hydrangeas.
