Just Because

Just because he loves me, he brought these flowers home.

He bought them at Costco and brought them home in their cellophane bundle.  They were beautiful, but I decided to add a little more love to this bouquet of fall splendor.  First I trimmed each stem, at different lengths, building an arrangement of varying heights.  Then I took an empty, large glass jar (I think it once was an over-sized jar of sun dried tomatoes) and placed the freshly trimmed flowers inside.  I took one of my vintage tins that was just a bit bigger than the glass jar, and

put the jar inside.

A couple of years ago, I bought this green moss.  It’s been tucked away in a cabinet waiting to be used.


I placed my freshly, primped gift on the table,

and adorned it with a few fresh pumpkins, as well as

a few velvet, plush pumpkins.

Just because.
