Buying Flowers For….ME!
It may be a little bit grim outside but inside is looking a little nicer. Phill and I have been like ships that pass in the night recently; either he’s away or I am. As always, when I miss him, I clean. Well I don’t just clean; I dig, I drill, I paint, I throw things away, I sand, I screw, I finish projects, I start others and I buy shoes that I don’t need.
I can’t decide whether these sky scraper heels remind me of Christmas or the Bay City Rollers!
I probably don’t need these shoes…but I like them….
…and so does Beth who tried them on after school!
I also buy flowers. Some people may think it’s odd to buy flowers for myself, but I do it all the time.
I’d choose flowers over chocolates anytime and even though Phill is home again I’m still enjoying these lovely Gladioli that I bought when he was away.
I bought two bunches for myself, one deep, regal purple and one baby pink.
The purple ones I placed on the dining room table with a cake stand I had filled with pine cones and heather from my trip to the Highlands. Most of the pink ones brightened up a dark corner in the Living Room.
Some of the pink stems had flowers were so far down, they would have been below the water-line; so I pinched them off and put them in a small candle holder. I think they look great! I’ll definitely do this again, I hate throwing blooms away.
The three objects make a nice centre-piece for an Autumn Table. I love how the light shines through the glass and even the petals; so delicate.
This is one of our cats, Rocky. I did NOT choose his name :-S We wouldn’t normally allow the cats to be on the table but he looked so adorable that I couldn’t move him right away.
Isn’t he nosy….I mean photogenic 🙂
For some reason my cats were very interested in the camera today. This is Poppy (who’s name I DID have a hand in) hiding behind the pink flowers. The lovely pale petals looked like tissue paper against the blue walls.
What is it about a vase of flowers that makes a home feel loved?
