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?
