The flowers at the Safeway grocery store were in abundance. I was so tempted to buy some but restrained myself. Please click on the roses, above, for a larger view.
I am mad about these white hydrangeas but will hold out for the potted version for my garden.
This hydrangea has pink on the petal edges. mmm!
Would you like a fresh bouquet in each room?
More flowers at the grocery store.
I took the above picture to show all the glittery pots!
I acquired one of the smaller containers and put a potted rose in it.
Some of the bouquets had the crystal stick pin inserted in each rose but they were completely sold out today.
Below are pictures of the artificial flowers at Dollar Tree today
I already have a bouquet of the velvet-look white roses, so I tried not to be tempted with these, but they were sure appealing.
Here is a bright spot in he new Women's Weekly, a cheap magazine that is always cheerful. I only get one after flipping through it at the grocery store if there is something in it worth keeping.
I will be saving this page for my scrapbook or framing it. So vivid! Please click the picture for a larger view!
This glitter heart inserted in my wall candleholder is brightened by the daylight coming through the opposite window.
I wanted to share that I have a new kettle from Hamilton Beach Company to boil water and it has an automatic setting which heats the water when it gets cold. When no one is home but me, it is like having a friend get hot water ready for me when I want to make my frozen-berry tea. Just hearing the water click on makes it seem like there is someone in the kitchen getting things ready. I love the little comforting noises when the house is quiet.
Someone will ask me about the orphan saucer sitting under the teacup. It is called Meadowside and I have never seen a matching cup. I got this one at a garage sale.
