Bright Summer Colors

Yesterday I did a post of soft summer colors and today I'm doing the opposite.
 The difference today from yesterday though is not only the colors, 
but today's flowers are silk.  I have found that good quality silk
flowers are worth every penny and can bring just as much
joy to a room as fresh flowers.
This first arrangement of nasturtiums is one I have had
for years and years.  I make the little basket from sticks and 
filled it with the colorful nasturtiums to brighten my kitchen every summer.

You know you love something when it passes the test of time and
you keep it for years on end.
I paired it with this dear little summery saucer and pear
candle I found at Goodwill last week.  Don't they go together like
the perfect couple?

But my favorite part of this perky vignette is the bouquet of
colorful poppies I found at a yard sale this weekend.

I originally picked these up to resell at the store, but just can't bring myself
to  part with them and the way they brighten up a room. The
brilliant colors demand attention and scream "look at me".

I love the way they always bring a smile to my face and sunshine to the room.
Last but not least, is the soft orange plaid linen I found at a flea market a 
few weeks ago.  I picked it up to use in the store this fall for Halloween, but
found it the perfect table cover for this vignette.

The silks are beautiful. I have picked up some nice ones from Michaels, when they are on sale, not sure why I don't do that more, now you got me thinking I have to stop in there, lol! Thanks for sharing.

Just a beautiful set up! Love your fauxs and they look so real. I love them too and use them over and over again! Those poppies are wonderful! What a lovely spot of sunshine.
Be a sweetie,

I don't think I can decide whether I like the pastel or vibrant colors I'm not going to choose. :o)

It's hard to believe the beautiful items you come up with at yard sales and thrift shops! Maybe one day I'll have a little more time to be such a frugal shopper and turn lemons into lemonade, like you do!

Happy colors, especially like the GW boutique candle and the saucer.
