Red Flowers and Computer Problems

We have been having computer problems these past few days.
We only have our one main family computer (no laptops in our budget yet) so it can really be a challenge when something goes wrong. Hopefully I have it resolved now. 
I wanted to share an arrangement of red flowers in our kitchen. Roses, carnations and pretty little red berry branches. Red is not a colour I use often, but they certainly add a pop of colour to our snowy winter weather and simple decor. I used another white pitcher as a vase and a vintage textile that belonged to my mother. I love the cutwork detail.
The best part is that these flowers, and the winter white bouquets I shared last week, were both free, given to me as extras.
I hope you enjoy the weekend! We are having a cold (-11C or about 12F) and snowy end to the week here. Our 14 1/2 year old son just got over a virus, and our youngest, who turned 13 this week, started tonight. Yuck! Here's hoping my husband and I can steer clear of it! Lots on my to-do list this weekend, but I have a feeling we won't get much done. What are your plans for the weekend?

  1. Your red bouquet is beautiful! I hope you don't get the 'bug' from your kids and can get things done this weekend. We're having company for supper and a challenging game of Mexican Train (dominoes) tomorrow. Should be fun. :)

  7. Your red bouquet is very pretty Elizabeth.

    Here it is...about 1:30 AM Central and I am awake visiting blogs. These hours come from two days sleeping all day, but the sinus infection is on the run with the help of antibiotics and lots of sleep! Just mixes up my days and nights though.:-)

    Hope you are able to steer clear of the virus at your house and can enjoy the weekend.
