Loving Flowers!

I literally walked in the door from my floral design class, took a few pictures, turned on the computer and started this post, I get so excited every time I actually make something. This week we were using floral foam which allows flowers to stay in the place you want them. So I had to find a pot that wasn't see through so you couldn't see how tacky the floral foam actually looks. I didn't want to spend a lot of money and was feeling crafty (which has been disasterous in the past), so I decided to buy a cheap terra cotta pot and paint it.
1. Fist I painted the rim white
2. Then I painted the rest yellow, it looked kind of plain so I then added polka dots using the end of a Q-tip.
3. Next I added the flowers! I can't believe this is a class I get to take for school that counts towards my major, it is just too much fun!
4. And now here they are at my house. I feel a bit selfish because I haven't technically given anything away but I love having fresh flowers in my house and I also justify it that I need them. Since the house is pretty quiet these flowers sure do liven it up!
