A Friday Flower & Some Repurposed Oil Bottles

Friday... I still get that Friday feeling, even though the day job just runs into the weekend and right back out the other side... Perhaps it's because the hubby is around to share the load... or because it became ingrained into me... there was nothing like switching off that PC on a Friday afternoon and leaving the pile of reports on my desk... Ironic that now the weekend means that I have a chance sit on the laptop, catching up on events in Blogland.... Speaking of  Blogland, I would like to thank Brenda for so very kindly mentioning me in her wonderful blog... I really can't thank her enough... and so, my Friday Flower is dedicated to Brenda this week...

I was feeling a purple flower today, although my daughter declared these too purple... I hope you like them... they got a little crumpled too, as my youngest got a hold of them in the store, while I was  busy looking for a lost toy (yes, there were lots of tears... because of the lost toy.. not the flowers)...
It did mean that after she had 'dead headed' them for me, there were fewer to work with...

I used the oil and vinegar bottles that I picked up at the sidewalk sale the other week... at last, I now have a use for them... If I had a decent size windowsill, I would have popped them on that... I never thought that a windowsill would be an advantage to living in a brick house; but once you don't have them you sure miss them...

Anyhoo,  here they are in my tiny bathroom... A little bit of 'pretty' in this space... and boy does it need it!

If you want to join in with this week's Friday Flower, there's a Linky Widget at the bottom of the post. I'd love to see your flowers and, as my friend always says, 'there's no such thing as a bad flower'... so, let's share the love!

I'm also linking up with the lovely Melissa. She posts the most amazing pictures... so much so,  that she makes me homesick for Blighty...

Have a great weekend everyone... and take care!

  4. Hi Laura!
    I'm so busy these days (just came back from a quick trip to the netherlands and the start of moving everything from one house to another), so my FF for today didn't make it! Next week I will post another one (BTW, I had also a purple flower for today, it's a beautiful fall color). Enjoy your weekend!
