Poppies brighten any room and are often found in ornamental
gardens. They were a funeral flower for ancient Egyptians
and used as a shrine flower by the Greeks. In our home they are
used as a glorious accent color.
You know, how I keep my floral arrangements year after year.
Well this little poppy arrangement is no exception. She is well
over ten years old. She has been packed, moved, dusted and
bathed. Here she is now proudly displayed on our family
Summer of 2012 we painted our living areas French Gray-
With my new clean and neutral colors, I was in need for some
accent colors. I wanted to incorporate green and tangerine into
my family room.
On a recent shopping trip to Kirklands I found this poppy
painting! You can imagine how pleased I was-the floral
arrangement and painting are perfect for my mantle decor.
Embracing the tangerine theme, I purchased these pillow covers
and brought continuity to our family room.
What colors are you choosing for Spring?
