What Happens When You Don't Have a Lid...

I found a great coffee pot at Goodwill the other day.

The only thing about my coffee pot was that it had no lid. 

So, what do you do when something has no lid, but really needs one to make it look complete?

First, you pick a beautiful hydranga bloom off of a hotel bush as you are leaving the parking lot.  Then you drive five hours home and hope it doesn't get smushed between your luggage.  Next, you place it in the top of the unlidded little beauty and viola, problem solved.

What would you have done?

LOL...Just did the same thing!!

A perfect solution, Amy!

I am so happy to know that I am not the only person that would drive 5 hours with a flower in tow... the things we do to make our home happy.:)

Have a lovely week!

If I saw that beautiful hydrangea, that's EXACTLY what I would have done! It was meant to find its home in that lovely silver coffee pot. Great display! I don't remember seeing such a vibrant green one like that. Beautiful!

Oh you naughty girl ;-) It looks beautiful!

Heidi said...

LOL! Love the hotel clipping! And I love the patina on that thing!

Debbie said...

I HOPE I would have done the same thing! The best part is that hydrangeas dry so beautifully that it can just stay there as long as you want it to.

I can't think of another flower that dries as pretty as the hydrangea.

that is one lovely lid...probably prettier than the original.
your header is breathtaking as well.


have a great day~

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Brilliant! I've done the same thing, too. :-)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Same thing. Flowers are the best lids. In fact I have one or too cans with lids and the lid always gets in the way when I put flowers in the can.
Good on you for safely bringing that beautiful Hortensia home with you.
