Clever Ideas x 2...

There are still so many beautiful flowers at the farmer's market that scream summer is still here and this is always a clever way to display them. Perfect beside the bed or on the sink in the kitchen or bathroom or in a grouping on any table they add a little bit of whimsy. You can get these tea tins in any Chinese grocery store or most speciality food stores or just use whatever sort of tin you have in the cupboard. Love the tomato can with the gorgeous teddy bear sunflowers below featured in the NY Times Magazine. Word of advice, place your flowers in a small glass inside the can to prevent any leaks. Wouldn't they be pretty for an end of summer dinner party center piece...and then you could let all your guests take one home.


and throw these ice cubes in your next batch of drinks for a little extra color, flavor and surprise...
