Crazy for Sunflowers!

 After taking a look around and noticing how many sunflower items I have..  I have to admit that I must be crazy for sunflowers!!  I do love the cheerful color it brings in...Of course mine are not natural, but I do love them either way...
I found this large verdi finish tin vase at Pier 1 Imports on markdown....I put some sand in the bottom to give it weight and to anchor the sticks and stems....

 I try to incorporate a french feeling to my decorating, although sometimes it's just good ole' country!

I recently acquired this sunflower trivet discounted only because a rubber foot was missing...I fixed that!!

I love the picture on the left with the pottery and sunflowers...It hangs on the wall leading down the stairway from the kitchen...it's viewable from the kitchen and the dinette table.....
My other sunflowers on the right are on my little desk....

Last but not least, sunflowers on a large serving platter from my Rooster dishes called Chanticleer by Sakura.....

  5. I finally got to a Hobby Lobby for the first time! I went bonkers, but refrained from buying everything! I picked up a couple more sunflowers to add to my vase. I'll work on it and post a new picture.
