Finding beauty in the little things


As most of you learned from my previous post, I just love fresh flowers on our dining room table. One of the many ways I like to find joy and beauty in every day things. When the mister listed off things he'd like to "implement" in the new year, one of them was having fresh flowers on the table every month. That's certainly fine by me. Especially since I work from home every day. It's nice seeing some form of life in the house besides myself and the doggie. Hee

Today has been quite successful in catching up on some of the work that had fallen to the wayside last week while sick. Now, I'm off to (secretly) shop for hubby's birthday that's coming up this Wednesday! Oops! Did I just announce his upcoming birthday in the bloggie world? :)

    1. Yes, it's so true, isn't it? Sadly, I forgot to re-water the current flowers on the table and they're now dying. Bummer. Will have to get some new ones now. lol

  4. Yes you did! And how glad I am because we can all inundate him with 'you now whats' on Wed. haha!
    Love, Mary

    P.S. Flowers always make a room look special - even just a few work, don't need to spend a fortune on huge arrangements. I love a few wildflowers in a simple jug in spring and summer. Have never really been one for formal florist offerings. Yours are lovely in that beautiful bird vase.

  5. You can't beat a beautiful vase of flowers Alex ...... sometimes I buy them but often I will go out into the garden and pick lots of foliage and maybe the odd flower or two and they look better than the bought ones !!!! Sound's like you've made a full { or nearly full } recovery .... must have been all that tea !!! XXXX

    1. Awww, too bad. Some flowers do make me sneeze and/or irritate my allergies. Like tiger lilies. Their scent is too strong for me. :)
