Here, Copy Cat, Here

Super excited to join  DebbieDoos  for her copy cat challenge today!  Ohhh, I had big dreams of one major copy this past week but oh no, not to happen, this J-GRITS was in the bed! Yep, sick...with the crud...ugh! So the big dream copy will save until another day!  I do, however, have a sweet little copy that I tweaked to meet my needs for a springtime breakfast table for the hubby and me!!

(Better Homes & Gardens, March, 2010)


From the magazine..."Turn a tea set into a sweet floral display. Use one kind of flower in the teapot (here, it's white ranunculus) and another in the cup (tulips)." 

Well, I didn't have the 'white ranunculus' so I substituted  buttercups (from my yard) in my tall pot!  Love it!!


Again no tulips...but fresh strawberries will work...


Sliced just right...oh yeah...actually could past for very small tulips 
(if you squench your eyes just a little bit)
















Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!
