Cheap Chic

A little bit Country a little bit Country French....

I love buying big bunches of flowers for CHEAP at the grocery store and finding fun ways to display them at home. Click on the picture to enlarge.

For more pictures and some fun ideas on decorating with flowers visit my post at Home Goods, by clicking HERE.

I am off to visit all of you now! See you soon.

Welcome Home,
Penny

Hi Penny, I agree with you. The fresh flowers aren't that expensive and they just bring some life into a room. Especially during the cold winter months.

Happy Saturday

Hi Penny,

I love your flowers and this time of year it is so nice to bring them indoors and enjoy them. I went out to the grocery store this afternoon and I couldn't believe they had tulips and lillies for sale! Of course, it's also 80 degrees here so I am feeling so ready for Spring!

Hugs,

KarenHarveyCox said...

Penny,
That is a great idea. Our supermarket has beautiful flowers, but their art of arranging isn't always my taste. Now I have to go look at your other blog.
Happy Sunday.

Beautiful! The grocery store is the only place I buy flowers from - I usually can get them really cheap as my Kroger clearances the older ones when they get a new batch.

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Hi Penny, I enjoy having the real thing. I love flowers and in my home, and I do have the real along with the fake. Its because of the winter months and the lack of windows in certain rooms. I believe thats the color of Fushia which is dark pink. And I have that color distriputed in certain rooms of my home. The color certainly pops out at you. I love it!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Me too Penny. I most always have a vase of flowers on the table behind the sofa in the family room. Won't be long now before we can go out in the woods and pick twigs to force the blooms of forsythia and spring blooming fruit trees. :)

Nancy said...

Hi Penny, I love the flowers! Great idea! Nancy

Hi Penny, I am still trying to catch up with Pink Saturday. I do remember seeing your chandelier made with a chocolate pot. I thought it was very pretty...I also loved your teacup and saucer chandelier. I love your flowers in the little pots. A great look to make one smile.

Hugs...Jeanne
