At the risk of a corny title, I had to post about my love of flowers! I rarely have the cashola to buy them fresh, and Hubs is a little slow on the uptake when it comes to flora gifts. But when I manage to nab some at a bargain price, or on a rare occasion where Hubs comes through with the goods, I love playing around with different arrangements and seeing the way they breathe life into our home...
|A Valentine treat from Hubs, bought |
|The simplicity of a flower in a jar is perfection. Who needs vases?|
|And after a few of them got a little sad looking...|
|...they were shortened and popped into my favourite little turquiose jars.|
|When fresh flowers aren't on the cards, I love to hunt down a pretty weed!|
|I had been saving this little perfume bottle for this very purpose!|
|It has been very rainy and gloomy lately so the colours in this snap aren't fab, but the flowers are!|
|Green flowers make so much sense!|
|Petals are so tactile, it's a shame that they bruise on contact :o(|
|The centres of these pink flowers were coordinated perfectly with the green flowers. Oh how I wish I knew their names!|
|Perfect textures and colours!|
If fresh flowers are out of your price range too, then grab yourself and old jam jar or perfume bottle, and get hunting for a pretty weed, they are highly under-estimated as things of beauty!
Oh and since seeing quite a few 'faux flowers' gracing my favourite blog homes of late, I am almost ready to give them a chance in my own home, and I'll be sure to let you know how that goes. They really have come a long way from the musty and dusty arrangements of the past!
P.S. To Mum and Dad, I still love being your 'Blossie'.
