2 for 1 post

So remember this post.  I'm sure you were all wondering when I was ever going to get that mess cleaned up.  Well TaDa here it is along with an arrangement I did for a church last Sunday.  The floral arrangement was extra special to me because it was placed in memory of my best friends dad who passed away February 14th, 2004. He was a great guy and I have many memories of Mr. G joking around with us, he will always be with us in spirit.  

The cabinet was a huge splurge, (jk) It's from my favorite store that I love to hate.  The bottom drawer pulls out as a filling cabinet and the top is open to whatever I want to put in it.  I'm loving it, except for the legs. Maybe I'll replace them one day with something not so commercial looking.

Is it spring yet??

Surprisingly I have been very busy these past couple of days.  I have lots to share but for now I only have time to post my desk arrangement that is getting me in the mood for spring.  I went on a very long walk last week and discovered a Forsinthia Bush, prepared with my shears of course I cut a few stems and they are now in full bloom. I like the contrast of the two different arrangements together.

Ok, so maybe I was being a little unrealistic in the last 2 posts, hey shoot for the moon and you'll get the stars or something like that..... Last year Chris sent me these and although they are gorgeous I thought they tasted awful. This year I would much rather have some Sweetheart Berries from Sherri's Berries. My sister recieved them from her BF and they were delicious!

Who doesn't love Paris

Paris is the city of love and who wouldn't love to spend a long weekend indulging in pure luxury at the Hotel Plaza Athenee.  I found this hotel to be the most romantic I could find only later did I realize it looked very familiar.  

Below is a photo of when I was in Paris with my mother.  We stayed in a very cute boutique hotel that as you can see had a view of the Eiffel Tower.  Chris sent me those flowers, I think that was one of the most romantic things he has ever done.

Valentine's Day Gift Count Down

First choice for every girl is jewelry. And since I'm pretty sure I won't be receiving any this year I think it's safe to say I would love this Grape Tourmaline Ring with Diamonds in White Gold. Hey a girl can dream..... it is only $7, 680.

First day at the florist shop

I just got home from working my first day at a real florist shop.  The owner has so kindly taken me on even during these rough times.  I am so excited to be helping them out for the big Valentines' Day week, bring on the red roses baby!!!! But for now I'm enjoying these beautiful orange roses that we all got to take home because they are way too open to be sold.

Happy Birthday to ME!

I turn 28 today and yes I feel old but that didn't stop me from having a great b-day party at the roller rink last weekend. Check out the pics here.

For my cupcake I picked these because I think they are unique and beautiful.

In a search for floral buckets I found these beautiful vintage buckets.  I love the kelly green color.
