My table has been lacking in the excitement department lately. I like to keep fresh flowers in the house but in this heat we have been having they just don't last more then a day or two! So I decided to take matters into my own hands. I accomplished two tasks while making these flowers. Our house has lilac bushes on 3 sides and they are in desperate need of some dead branch removal. So I went to work and picked out some of the smaller branches to make my flowers. I stuck them in some dollar store vases and stuck some leftover fabric flowers. In about 5 minuets and the cost of 3 vases I had "flowers" that won't wilt in this miserable heat!!
