Hydrangea Happiness!
I love hydrangeas!! Just looking at them brings a smile to my face and makes my heart happy! I believe in your home you surround yourself with things that you love and I wanted to share with you how I have incorporated my love of hydrangeas into my decorating. Be they real, dried, or artificial, they will always be found in my place called home!


I love putting flowers in treasured tea cups ~ the tea cups are not just for tea anymore!!


Close-up view ~ tea cups can be used and displayed in many different ways!


This is a wall hanging that is in my den. My den is painted yellow (although the picture doesn't show it) and the two colors look wonderful together!


These sweet little glasses used to belong to Grammy. I just love to put a pretty cutting in them and place by each person's plate at the dining room table. It takes very little effort but I think it makes the table look special and my family feel even more special!

Susan, I have real, dried, and artificial hydrangeas all through my house right now. I love them. The bloom in your teacup looks so pretty.

Oh that looks so pretty! I have some old teacups I haven't known what to do with - I think I will try your beautiful idea!

How pretty, Susan! I really love all the ways you decorated with hydrangeas...especially the teacup and glass! I promised myself that I would plant at least one hydrangea in my garden next spring. :0)

I think that hydrangeas really dress up any room in the home. We've actually using them at the church building on the foyer and communion tables. I'll have to remember to take my camera to church so I can share some pics with you. :)
Blessings,

I love hydrangeas too - I have planted over a dozen bushes in our yard since we moved in! :) Lovely!

The flowers are the perfect touch - especially in the glasses. What a wonderful way to welcome someone!

Gorgeous! You and I have VERY similar tastes, but oh yes, I think we determined that little fact long ago!
I pray you have a blessed week!
Lots of hugs,
