Pretty Things.

We went out to get some groceries yesterday after work and I wandered into the floral department, where I usually end up. It was blustery outside and wintery weather was forecast overnight. When a storm is brewing, I buy flowers. It's the perfect way to bring some life into your home when it's miserable outside.

I picked up a bunch of green mums, in honor of St. Patty's day, some pink carnations and pink baby roses.  I'm certainly no florist but I love the look of bunched together blooms, so I went to work. I was able to make 3 arrangements and a few little posies. We've got pops of life everywhere we look. So what if it's only me who appreciates them? :)

Contrary to popular opinion, I adore carnations. They are inexpensive, last forever and are oh-so pretty grouped together. Remember Carrie and Charlotte scoffing at the idea of a man bringing carnations on a first date? Appalling! I once shared that opinion but have changed me tune. I've shared this before, but it's worth a read.

In other fun news. Look what arrived? We ordered iPhone cases from Society 6 and they finally came. While very pretty (well not Steph's - it's a mixed tape *funny*), they are somewhat cheap and super slippery... or slippy as we say here on PEI! I'm scared my phone is going to slide right out of my hands. 

I really love it but will pretty win out over function? We'll see.

What about you? Do you treat yourself to anything? Flowers do it for me. What's your treat?


  1. I'm with you, I love carnations. What beautiful arrangements you made!

  2. I love treating myself to flowers! It is the best thing about the grocery store! When I feel super proud of myself I go to Whole Foods or the flower mart to pick out something super fancy! Nice cover, but function will win out in time!

  3. I always have fresh flowers in the house. Trader Joes usually has great ones around here and I buy them every week. I'm also going to ATTEMPT at getting a house plant this weekend for some year round green. We'll see how that works out. Your arrangment are lovely!

  4. I used to be a carnation snob too! But they're completely underrated - they smell wonderful and last way longer than most flowers! Love your pretty arrangements!

  5. I'm a huge fan of carnations. They are lovely. :)

  6. I like carnations too. They are inexpensive and great when mixed with other flowers. I even had some at my wedding! Can't imagine dealing with winter here. I've already broken out my sandals and painted my toenails down south!

  7. Those are beautiful Jane. I love any flower that is bright and colorful except roses, not to fond of them too much.


  8. I am embracing your show of pretty most definitely! It's just wet, windy and gray here, and has been since Sunday! And I don't mind carnations for exactly the same reasons, the main one being that they last and last! Your vignettes are as pretty as the flowers in them! :-)

  9. Beautiful arrangements! I think that bright pink color is my FAVORITE. So happy and fresh!

  10. Love the flowers (gorgeous) and currently gushing over that iPhone cover of yours!

  11. I love your arrangements! Love the pink and green together!
