Ahhhhh I had a little time to myself to day and Phew! it was in the nick of time. I was in need of some serious regenerating. I dropped the kids off at the most amazing art camp and came home. I needed to clean the house. NEEDED. Not just because it was messy and annoying but I needed to have that time to ground myself. The first thing I did was to go walk around the yard and cut flowers to bring inside. I used to always have cut flowers in the house but things have gotten so busy that its just one more thing I have been neglecting. The little vase above is from Crate and Barrel and I am so in love with it. It is about the size of an orange and it is smooth and pretty and has a tiny hole in the top. The little flowers are some of my favorites from outside. I love all the tiny.
Here is a corner of the dining room. I love that little owl plaque- I got it as a gift but it came from radishes and roses. The vase I bought from a studio sale here in town. It looks like big yummy marshmallow. It was handmade by a local artist. This vase i recently bought at a going out of business sale for a whole $5. I love it and it is going to be the perfect Dahlia vase. I planted a lot of Dahlia's this year so I have high hopes for lots of bouquets. Here is a big yummy bouquet of roses. I have some really nice bushes outside. I love this vase too. Oh- and that sweet little bit of the green china pot is from an estate sale. Another $5 find. It is sort of a weird size so I don't know what it was used for but it is really pretty.
It feels really good to have a clean house and lots of flowers. And now it's going to feel good to go jump in the pool so I am outta here!
