Summer's Sunshine- Sunflowers!

Well it's late in the summer season and Sunflowers are in bloom!
I think they offer a ray of sunshine for any day- even a gloomy one!

I rummaged through my stock of artificial flowers and ended up with this... These were about 24" stems but I chopped away at them to work for these jars.

I was going to put these jars on the plate rack but they were too tall so I finallly decided I wanted a new cheerful design on the windowsill at my kitchen sink.

 I've been growing a collection of green glass bottles.  This one has a cow on it although I just couldn't seem to capture it well.  The little jar has pieces of the lavender that have fallen from my small bouquet of lavender I got at the lavender farm.

Makes me happy!!

Bon Weekend everyone!

Tuesdays at our Home


  1. That is such a beautiful way to display the sunflowers...on a sunny windowsill with the old bottles. Lovin' it!!

    1. ps...catching up on what I missed of your posts...love the 'artistic' gate with the wagon rims.

  2. I love your cheerful sunflowers! You were brave to chop them off. I have some super long sunflower stems and I could use them more if I chopped mine off too. I might now that I have seen yours. They are happy flowers. Sheila

  3. Love the window display, very cheerful.

  4. Very cheerful. I love sunflowers, however when I buy the real ones, they never last.

  5. Oh, Liz, it makes me happy too! What a delight for the end of summer look!

    You are getting a nice collection of jars, too - perfect for so many things! : - )


  6. I like how you put separate blooms in the jars instead of all massed together. They look pretty in your windowsill.
