Flowers In a Wooden Tote

Hey my friends!

Hope you’re great today.

I want to show you a few simple shots in my dining room.

table 2

This wonderful old wooden tote was a flea market find a couple of months ago.  I bought it for my etsy shop but decided I needed to hang onto it for a little while. 

So glad I did..

table 4

We are fortunate to have beautiful dogwood trees blooming all over our property and they are beautiful.  I brought some branches in and began placing them around the house.  They look gorgeous!

table 6

Simple, fresh and lovely to my eyes.

Preparing for a road trip.  Would love your prayers for safety and that we will be a blessing to those we meet along the way.  Thanks!

Have a blessed day, friends.

Your dogwood branches are gorgeous Amy ~ and adorable in the tote too! Have a safe trip ~ we are headed out this morning for a little spring break too!

Debbie said...

I love it, especially with the dogwoods. You've inspired me to go out this very morning and bring some of mine inside.

Lifting you for travel graces. I love how you ask to be a blessing along the way. What a wonderful prayer. Too often, I hope that I'll be, but I don't specifically voice it.

Your wooden tote is very lovely... In fact it was the reason I clicked over to your blog from coastal charm. You set it up very nicely!

Kellie Collis said...

It's a lovely idea! Enjoy the fabulous weekend, Kellie xx

Connie (aka LOU) said...

Great display Amy. My thinking is you would have to fill up each cavity in the tote but you don't have to at all to make it look nice. Very simple and very lovely. Your grandmother's recipe cards was my inspiration for my blog today in case you want to check it out. Safe travels to you.

Kolein said...

The tote sits so lovely on your table!

As I was scrolling through the photos...I could smell fresh clean Spring air coming through your open windows!

Love ya,
