Goatsbeard and Peony

When I look at this little bouquet, I remember that simple combinations of a few items create lovely results.

Recently, a friend helped me clear more surfaces in my home and display just a few items (rather than ten). I remember sparse decorating ushers in elegance. In past years, I would have stuffed fifteen peony blooms into this blue vase and crammed in stalk after stalk of the goatsbeard.

No more stuffing. No more cramming. Sparse elegance is the phrase of the day for me for decorating and in life.

Lovely! Thank you for the inspiration of Goatsbeard; I am not familiar with it.
