**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! BaSkeT with FaLL Hydrangeas!*!*!

On our property, we have some of "The BeSt" Annabelle Hydrangeas!!!   Annabelle's produce very large blooms...  In between working on my SHaBBies yesterday, I just knew it was "H*A*R*V*E*S*T   T*I*M*E, - with the hydrangeas having turned green for about two weeks now...

 Before hanging them up to dry... -
 I just had to see what they would look like displayed!!!
 I grabbed this FaB SHaBBy Wire Basket that I purchased at Viva la Cottage mid-summer...  The Basket is quite unusual - as it is much much taller than it's more commonly seen shorter version... 

 BeSt Time-Worn PaTiNa!*!*!
It's wire frame is coated with a rubber of sort ~
 that has now aged just FaBuLously...
(enlarge this one...)

 Such Great Form...  ~ LoVe the Rusty Handle too...
Soooooo Much more Interesting than Brand New!*!*!

"Not Tooooo SHaBBy GaRaGe" - now that the Harvest Is In!!! 
    Looks soooo refreshing with all the Hydrangeas hung on the ladder to dry...  A lovely Accent - to adorn your Fall Baskets/Containers with their GoRgeOuS Apple Green Color... 
***I'll be selling a select number of these bunches at my upcoming Fall Shows***
It's a GoRgeOuS Day here in Wisconsin!*!*!
Have a good rest of the weekend...


  1. Oh you lucky girl, it was so hot here for so long, that my hydrangea bushes just withered up, and just a few blooms. Yours are just beautiful!

  2. Ich LIEBE Hydrangeas und habe auch schon viele geschnitten. Es sieht bei Dir traumhaft schön aus !!!

  3. The hydrangeas are so pretty and colorful, love them!
    It would be so much fun to shop at your show...I would leave with my hands full for sure.


  4. Can I please move into your garage?? pretty please?? :) BEAUTIFUL hydrangeas. Mine are doing great this year and I just bought two more 24.98 plants at Menards for $5.00 each!!! Should have purchased them all!!

  5. Your Hydrangeas are breath taking! I long to have lovely flowers on my property, but I have terrible soil here! Not many blooms at my place!

  6. My Annabelles were great this yr except for the one the deer munched on. Just picked a huge bouquet last week.
    Yours look amazing.


  7. They look gorgeous hanging up...need to do that in my garden cottage. I cut mine and just put in a vase..no water and they dry fine.

  8. Those are beautiful! I have a few limelights and they are going strong right now. I like to pick them when they are just turning pink.
    YOurs do wonders for a garage! t. xooxox

  9. Have I told you how much I enjoy your wonderful blog? It is so wonderful! We have baskets like these...contemporary version. They are egg baskets with rubber coating to protect the eggs from breaking. The older ones are wonderful and I've collected a few. The newer ones are not pretty just practical. When you collect hundreds of eggs a day...by hand..not conveyer belt they come in handy!!!
