    Wow! I would never have thought of arrows as decoration but these are just lovely! I might have to make this a DIY project. =)

    I’m pretty sure they’re not so baby friendly…

    I’d be inclined to use them on the 100 crows which are picking apart my Asian pear tree. The pears aren’t even ripe yet, and the crows are destroying them all. Looks like Hitchcock’s “The Birds” movie outside my window right now.

    I am holding you completely responsible for the Bon Jovi song that’s going to play over and over in my head today.
    And while the arrangement looks great, I have to agree with the other commenters about arrows and babies not mixing so well :)

    Common people, Nicole just likes them, it’s not like she’s going to let Elinor crawl up there and poke her eye out. Sheesh.

    Thank you for the flashback to summer camp!!! I must buy some now, though my hubby will think I’m nuts.

    I really appreciate how you use links to tell your readers where/how to find everything. I also like how you put questions out there, and share your own thoughts/concerns about pieces, arrangements or new decisions. You’re a very thoughtful blogger.

    They’re probably just as dangerous as pencils, pens, chopsticks etc. Just keep them out of harms way and you’ll be fine. Get em!!

    Hello Nicole,

    I also want to have it on my desk, the arrangement is cool, uses different arrows with great colors make it more lively and noticeable and the base is really neat. I will look in a native place here in our area if I can also come up with great design.

    Hi Nicole, the hard edge of the arrows would make such a great visual contrast against all your pink! Go for it!

    As an archery counselor for a girls camp, I heartily approve of this arrangement!

    […] went ahead and got some arrows like I had wanted! They’re in Brandon’s office, four feet up and safely out of reach. Sweetshorn had sold […]
