A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Thrifty Thursday - A Full Natural Bouquet from 2 Faux Sprigs...

 A few years ago I found some thrifted faux sprigs of Forsythia.  
I love them!  But when I went to fill my ironstone pitcher 
on my mantel - they were not enough... 

A few days ago this pitcher looked like this.  
So I simply left the real twigs in place...

...and added my 2 sprigs of faux forsythia.  

I'm loving my nice and full bouquet that looks real 
with only 2 sprigs of faux flowers.  Of course it helps that
these sprigs were the 'multiple bunch' kind. 
But still... I'm thrilled!

Don't overlook faux flowers when you're thrifting.  
I gravitate toward the ones I would pick naturally if I had them... 
ie -greens, hydrangea, and especially seasonal flowers
such as this forsythia or berries.

I'll share my full Spring mantel with you soon.  
Enjoy this day!  ~Joyce

Joyce, that is beautiful! If you hadn't told us that they were faux flowers I would be sure that they were real. Wonderful!
Blessings, Betsy
