using a trader joe's roasted pepper jar flower vase

i love fresh cut flowers especially in the winter { i suffer from no light blues or something;) }


  Flowers remind me of spring and summer when mornings are full of birds singing and nights are long with adventure.

we were at Trader Joe's Saturday and these little ranunculus were 5.00 a bunch.  In my younger days i would never buy myself flowers.  Spend 5 dollars on something that will die?  no way.  frivolous.

then 40 came..and went. i have learned to buy flowers "just because"

I don't have to wait for a husband or boyfriend to buy me some flowers..:) so liberating! treat yourself to a bouquet this month because

the home is the centre and circumference, the start and the finish, of most of our lives --Charlotte Perkins Gilman 

take off the wrapper and trim the ends and place them in anything a vase a milk bottle a coffee can or a roasted red pepper jar from Trader Joe's like we did here."

smile lots...even if you don't feel like it do it anyway ok?  and I will too!
