...then we went almost 2 years without flowers.
He overheard me telling a girlfriend that I don't waste money on flowers...
because I cut them out of my gardens.
...IN THE SUMMER!
Hubs got it, and now comes home frequently with little bouquets from the supermarket.
Now, I have nothing against big, formal arrangements.
I love them.
However, I love to have fresh flowers all over my house.
Most spaces in my very informal house would look a little strange with elaborate arrangements.
When I got home from the tax office today...
there were two, sweet little supermarket bouquets waiting for me!
I love to arrange them in glass vessels...
I like to use things out of the ordinary.
In my pretend life, when I'm not being a RockStar...
I own a flower shop.
... I wish!
What was the grocery store selling today?
Quit being a flower snob!
Carnations last forever, and smell lovely.
So, knock it off.
Quit giving them a bad rap!
I cut them, divided them...
...and I present...
Supermarket Chic (or cheesy)
Start with two $4.00 bouquets...
Add them to a glass dish with shells.
(This will go in the Master bedroom.)
I use baby food jars ALL the time!
A closer view of the flowers.
Sitting in Monkey's first pair of Chuck's.
...on top of the dryer.
Adds a smile to my face when doing such a dastardly chore!
(again in a baby food jar)
Found an old flour sifter at a garage sale.
It normally sits outside and holds flowers in the summer.
Line the sifter with a zip-lock, add water and flowers!
This is now sitting in the bathroom.
Love the crusty, rusty against the silver and white!
Two little baskets that hang on a side of a cabinet in the kitchen.
25 cents for both baskets... oh, how they need spray paint!
Line the basket with a zip-lock bag, and add water and flowers!
Look what was harvested at the farm today!
This will go up to Monkey's room.
Will he give a hoot if there are flowers in his room?
But, I'll enjoy them!
And there you have it!
Do you ever buy flowers from the supermarket???
