Last week, I did a "posting" on a bush that has bloomed orange berries in my yard...maybe "bittersweet" but I am not sure.  I,  finally, found a wonderful way to use these berries...
I hosted a ladies get-together at my house last night so I had bought some sunflowers.  I put them in my vase but they looked so lonely.  So I went out in the rain in the morning with my scissors and pajamas(shhh....noone can see me in the back).  I cut some of those orange berry sticks, pinetree branches and another greenery.  

Put all of that in the vase with my sunflowers and it was the perfect fall bouquet for my kitchen island. My sunflowers were much happier and so was I!

This looks beautiful!!

I am always sneaking out to the yard in my PJ's...last weekend I went out and cut Hydrangeas for all of my tables....gotta love it, when you can use what you have right in your own yard!!

Hope you don't mind, I added you to my blog list....have a good weekend!

Oh it looks beautiful :)

I only wish my yard had such beauties around, but being in Arizona and on base, we really don't have anything, it's mostly desert landscaping and I doubt a huge cactus in my house would be appreciated by the family LOL

I love your blog and have added you to my bloglines, hope that is ok.
