1. Some day, I want to take a class in flower arranging. I’m terrible at it, and I know it. But I love flowers, indoors and out, so I have them around me anyway. My little girls love to pick flowers in the yard, and we’ve always got a tiny vase (or three) of something on the kitchen island. I’d really like to put a centerpiece on the table during family get-togethers, but there never seems to be room for one And the food And our plates. Hmmmmmmm.

    But anyway, that first quote about kids seeing beauty as important and wanting to beautify their world with their own artistry is sooooooo true. Yesterday at the garden center, my kids all insisted they get to help select which flowers to put in the empty spots in our container garden. I had to guide them a little bit so we would have a nice variety of heights, colors, and textures, but they were very eager to be involved.

    • It sounds like you know a little bit more about what you’re doing than I do. πŸ™‚ Little by little though I’m learning. I have become fairly proficient at putting roses in a vase nicely because my husband gets them for me so often. πŸ™‚
      I don’t know if you could do this with a family get together, but a couple of years ago at Thanksgiving with tremendous effort I was able to keep the kitchen clean while cooking and preparing and then set up the food buffet style on the counters. This left so much more room for making the table pretty.
      I put all the little extras on the table – pickles, olives, cranberry sauce, etc. I made a big centrepiece for the middle of the table and loved it. I’ve used that idea since for when we have other company.
      I’ve always tried to remember that children are just little people. If I appreciate beautiful things so will they.
