beaucoup bouquets

The word bouquet is defined as "flowers picked and fastened together in a bunch." But as we You've Got Mail fans know, bouquets can consist of other gathered items such as "newly sharpened pencils." This notion had me snapping photos of other possible non-traditional "bouquets" around the house.

A bouquet of flatware

A bouquet of desk supplies

A bouquet of craft paint (Martha Stewart's new line at Michaels!)

A bouquet of note paper and cards

A bouquet of business cards

Do you have any bouquets of somethings around your home?

Well, off to do a bouquet of laundry ... ;)

What a super cute post Elyse! I actually do have bouquets of thins~ Pink and aqua spatulas in a flower pot, a bouquet of faux lollipopa, a bouquet of hair brushes in a flower pot (can you tell I love handpainted flower pots, lol)a bouquet of old fashioned candy sticks and two bouquets of dried roses :) It was fun to go around and see what I had bouquets of! I love yours, that silverware is soooo pretty!!

I have bouquets of dotty pops, paint brushes and rick rack right in front of me as well as a bouquet of dirty dishes waiting for me in the kitchen. Ew! Cute post, Elyse. ♥

Gee thanks for the reminder...I need to do a bouquet of dishes, clean a bouquet of toilets...and the cat box because it definitely has a "bouquet" that is neither "oaky" nor "fruity"! And as for my "bouquet of greys"...well, I'll deal with those tomorrow!

I'm afraid I am not as organized as you are. I don't have bouquets. I have organized chaos! Happy day to you. Tammy

I love your bouquets! I'm looking around my family room and immediately see a bouquet of remote controls and a bouquet of knitting needles. I'll let you guess which is mine and which is Sweet Hubby's.

Hi Elyse!

I love your pretty bouquets...they are as charming as you!

I have tons of artful bouquets, art supplies, and crochet hooks of many different sizes. Actually, I just added a photo of the crochet needle bouquet just today. Stop by and find it if you like!

I'm off to catch up on what else you've been up to.

Ciao Bella!

Such lovely bouquets, i am inspired! Now I can go face my own bouquet of laundry. Wait-maybe I shouldn't fold it because it works as a bouquet in the basket....
