Sucksalotplunker Floral Designs

I was inspired by Maryann at Domestically Speaking to use something basket-y for my front door wreath.  She found hers at an antique store, so I went to my neighborhood antique store and found this picnic basket purse. . .  thing-y.

There are no during pictures because I lovingly refer to myself as a floral "plunker" but this time it just wouldn't plunk right so I cut up the floral bush and tried to put them in individually in a design kind of thing-y.  As I looked at all those individual flowers laying there on the table I thought, "oh sh.. I mean,  um oh no!!!  Yea that's what I was thinking, but then I remembered a floral design/Christmas tree decorating professional tell to put it in triangles (on the Christmas decorations) that's just a little ditty from me to you.

Anyway, so I started out with a plan and put them in best I could.  But it just kind of looked like a badly plunked floral design, so this morning I decided that I was a "sucksalot" floral designer.  And then decided that if I ever opened up a floral design store it would be called sucksalotplunker floral designs.

but then I hung it on the door stepped back and WHAT!!!  To my suprise it looked okay.

So I ran back upstairs and plunked a greenery bush and fall leaf garland and

 Later I came back and moved that little orange berry looking thingy up into the flowers, it was better.

I've been eye spying some great looking pumpkins, they would look great on both sides of the door.  Next.

Very creative. The texture of the handbag looks beautiful with the fall flowers. A wonderful combination.
