A few weeks ago a good friend was celebrating her birthday. I decided I'd buy her flowers and went to our local Stew Leonard's grocery store. Now I know what you're thinking..."You bought flowers for your friend at the GROCERY STORE?! " Well it's not 7-11 and they weren't blue carnations. This is a great store with amazing produce and the most gorgeous floral department. I haven't been able to get flowers at a florist that are as beautiful as what they sell. Back to the subject at hand....flowers for my friend! The day I went in they had the most incredible antique hydrangeas. I fell in love instantly with them, but didn't buy any for myself. Well, I was back at that same store today and decided I'd had a rough week and deserved some flowers. I was in luck because they had the antique hydrangeas in stock! The floral lady and I gushed over them while she wrapped them up for me. I came home and was giddy that I bought myself such a beautiful gift. Silly I know, but trust me it's been one of those weeks and I needed a pick-me-up.
I'm using this post to brag on these amazing flowers and as a 'sneak peak' of something I'm going to be working on in the next few weeks.
Here's a sneak peak of project I have coming up and those BEAUTIFUL flowers!! They don't show up that great in this picture, but I still love it. The dresser is a big more rough in person than it looks in this picture, but it looks great here!
NOW, this shows the flowers a bit better. They have flecks of blue, pink, yellow and a light green with the cream in the background. The floral lady made sure to tell me at least 3 times to make sure I dry them. No worries these will be around for a long time!
They're so puffy and GORGEOUS!!!
Here you can see how rough the top of the dresser is, but what a great backdrop for the spectacular flowers. Hmmm have I used enough adjectives to describe them yet??
I love fresh flowers. They really brighten my day. Such an incredible reminder of how beautiful Mother Nature is. Now I just wish I could grow these in my own yard. I think I'd have them everywhere.
Enjoy your day and if you're having a rough one go buy yourself some beautiful flowers! :-)
