When I saw a rusty old grater at my favourite junque store, it didn’t take me but two seconds to scoop it up and tuck it under my arm. If anyone else was looking at it, they were going to have to fight me for it…
The tag suggested that it could be used as a candle holder, and yes, that would work, but I had other plans. The globe thistles (echinops) that I had harvested from my garden and were drying in our basement were crying out for a home.
I knew instinctively that the rustic style and greyish tones would be the perfect complement to these quirky, spiky flowers.
I was quite surprised at the top of it. What would this grid have been used for?
Well, no matter. I saw the perfect flower frog! What a treasure!!
I donned my (thickest) garden gloves, stripped away most of the very prickly leaves, trimmed the stems, and stuck them into the grid. I put the tallest stems in the middle, and the shorter ones at the edges. Piece of cake.
I love it when a project comes together so easily. I couldn’t wait to post until Friday so here it is today…
Have a wonderful Thursday! and see you tomorrow!
