Coke and Roses


I've had this white metal carrier for awhile now, the best kind of Thrifty Find, it was FREE and heading for the scrap yard! I have not been able to find anything I like that fits in just right


That was until I set my can of Coke down next to it, and guess what? Yep, that's right, it fit just right and makes a perfect 8-Pack Vase!

Notice my new Chippy Door in the background? One of my new gifts, and there's a story to go with it, I'll post that latter, this is all about the Flowers!
I switched out the Daises for Roses, which were a little harder to arrange in the coke opening, I think I'll stick to flowers without thorns.


I kinda of liked the way this black and white sign looked behind the Coke and Roses. In case you haven't noticed I like playing with vignettes



Here I placed my Rusty Barrel Lid Clock behind, a Rusty Hinge, and we have a fresh vignette

My little "Pray" heart seems to show up in a lot of my shots...Somethings just go with everything! Like Prayer...


Peeking out the back is my "clock" Lazy Susan, it just brightens up the scene.The Lazy Susan with a Thrift Store find, and it was 99 cents! Cleaned and painted, with a transfer from the Graphic Fairy, and now it's a Faux Clock!

Throw in a Vintage Silver Ice Bucket, (another Freebee, headed to the scrap) and of course my Old Camera


The Ice Bucket makes a great Vase for some Peony's





Coke and a Smile!


Thanks for taking a peek, leave a note to let me know you were here. Comments really do make my day!

God Bless!

  4. Your pictures are gorgeous!

    Clever about your soda/beer tote!

    You ought to consider spray painting your cans white and ModPodge a nice French graphic of your Initial or something, how cool would that look? Or even plain white would be awesome - maybe in a more durable paint like Rustoleum, that can get wet - since they make the perfect bud vases!

    Love your pics today - looks great.

  5. I saw this in the thumbnails last night and knew I wanted to come for a closer look this morning. You gave me a smile when I came to answer your sweet comments and the Coke & daisies greeted me!! LOVE this... so darn cute. I love how the little holder groups everything so nicely. Love your lazy susan clock too. I must have a look around... lots of treasures to be found I see! Thanks for your 'fairy resort' comment... you made us giggle. Have a great weekend! :)

  9. Come to think of it, I have a similar wire basket in the garage that I haven't figured out what to put in it, so thanks a bunch for the idea.

  10. So enjoying your flowers. I have not done my Spring planting yet, but have a few flowers coming up from last year. Clever arrangements ... love them all especially showing the clocks which I love. Need to decorate one of my lazy Susan's with a clock face. Thanks for sharing.

  17. I love your vignettes. I have been looking for a clock face and now you have shown me that I can just make my own. Can't wait to try. Hope you don't mind, but I am pretty sure I will be imitating your yellow clock face.

  18. What a great idea with the coke cans. In my case, they'd have to be Diet Coke cans! Your photos are really nice!

  21. Love that coke can holder! Looks so pretty with the flowers.

  22. That is really cool! And I LOVE your photos - the one with the 'one way' sign behind the coke cans - you should print that and sell it. Awesome. I want a coke holder too!

  23. I love it! Coke is such an iconic design and it mingles so wonderfully with the roses...very pretty!

  26. I first began to know Jesus love for me when I was in the first year of university. in 1980.I was really challenged by a poem in a Christian magazine which was left in the lounge of my hall of residence.The poem was written by Phil Streeter and was called the coca cola can.I am trying to find the magazine and came across your blog. Just before Easter of that year I made a decision to follow Christ and have know. His faithfulness since then.....

    The picture that went with the poem was a bashed up coke can and your photos of the coke cans with flowers in them encourage me that a life given to him can be reshaped and used for His glory.....Thanks for your encouragement....1 Cor 5 v 17

    1. Phil Streeter ran a church in Romford( yards from the church I attended) for about 20 years, I think he is retired now.I was trying to find his poem on line. " I've found a coca cola can Jesus, all buckled and bent....."

    2. I used to go to a church round the corner from Phil Streeter, and became friends with him, I've lost contact with him now.I think he is retired. I was trying to find his poem on line.
