cheap flowers

I do love a flower arrangement...especially when it's free.  I nicked these flowers from work's ok, I'm allowed and we get new ones every Monday :)
I never put flowers in this spot in the house...they're normally on the dining table.. but I really like it.
And that's what it looks like at night time...
The light is made from a bamboo lantern that I took the candle out of,  wrapped the fairy lights in tulle and just shoved them in. It doesn't appear to be a fire hazard:) I wrote about that here and here.
I got the fairy light wrapping idea from Simone's beach vintage blog (but she'd made a fantastic lightshade with white tulle for her daughter's room). 
Have a wonderful weekend won't you...


  1. What a spectacular space Kerry - so warm and inviting.
    I love the idea of the fairy lights in the lantern = very clever!

  2. Oh, how delightful is your lounge room??? Kerry, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. And here I am just coveting your bright wall prints and that fabulous red china cabinet!! Loving your style and those flowers are delightful. Glad you get a fresh bunch every week... xx

  3. Looks gorgeous Kerry and so inviting with the fairy lights!

  4. It all looks so good Kerry! It's a layout that we'd normally see on your images of the week!

  5. Hello Kerry, thank you for your lovely comment on my drawing! I like your blog a lot, you make such wonderful things! (i love the lamp!)
    Enjoy your weekend,


  6. How cool does your red buffet with the art and flowers and everything look Kerry! So good!
    The lantern does makes it look like the glow of a fire v warm and cosy! Jxx

  7. I love the red cabinet, Kerry. Your home is so warm and colorful. The bamboo lantern is awesome, what a great idea you had!

    Happy Weekend! :-)


  8. They look wonderful on that red cabinet which is a stunning piece.

  9. Funny that you put flowers beside your tv. I usually have mine on the fireplace and the last lot went beside the tv so I could see them at the same time. Hope you had a fabulous time at your dinner party (menu sounded great) and enjoyed the rest of the weekend. M

  10. Just gorgeous - so you! Bright and colourful. But no doilies? ;o)

    I love bunches of flowers for under $10 from Coles/Woolies and have discovered the little flower mart at Wiffins Fyshwick.

  11. Please let me know if you're looking for a author for your blog. You have some really great posts and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd love to write
    some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.

    Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Many thanks!

  14. I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your blog. It appears as if some of the written text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen previously.

    Many thanks

  15. Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    wonderful blog!

    Take a look at my homepage ...

  16. Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads
    up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm
    not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

  17. Hi. I was thinking of adding a website link back to your website since both of our websites are
    primarily based around the same niche. Would you prefer I link to you using your site address: http:
    // or web site title: Blogger: A Tranquil Townhouse.
    Be sure to let me know at your earliest convenience.
    Many thanks
