A few days ago, my sons and I went to their college campus. While we were walking around I saw something that got me in the mood for Spring.
Don't like that nature seems to be a bit out of sinc, but what a lovely sight!
The next day while at the grocery store there were buckets and buckets of tulips!
Happily grabbed a bunch and bought them. Who can resist their exuberant color and grace? Won't they will look pretty in a winter house, especially since Christmas and all of the sparkle and prettiness has been neatly put away till next December?
That's exactly what was going through my mind.
Once home, I got busy with the usual chores of an after the grocery store trip. Carrying bags from the car to the house. Up the steps. Putting all of the groceries away…then it was time to arrange flowers.
Really? I was tired, so I decided to take the day off from floral designing. I was going to put the flowers in water when I got home (cut the stems, put them in a clean container) with the intention of arranging them in a pretty vase, but laziness was the name of the game, so I got out the container I was going to use and simply pulled the plastic wrap from the grocery store back far enough to let the flowers have some space. In went the tulips.
Here is the finished "arrangement".
The tulips are still pretty!
So really, there is no excuse. YOU can do this too, for sure! So go out, buy some flowers and do what I did. They will still brighten your every day!
Really hope you see…YOU can do this!
And if you do go out and make yourself a pretty flower arrangement? It will help make your today your very best ever.
p.s. Full of gratitude and thanks for all of the blessings you share with me!
p.p.s. Looking forward to sharing NEW ideas with you about flowers, art and who knows what else?
For the last 30 years Michele has been designing flowers for all kinds of people, from brides to prom goers, from dining rooms to boardrooms. Starting out as a fine artist (painter) and moving into the flower world gave Michele a vision that set her work apart from other floral designers. Designing flowers in a more relaxed,"unfloristy" way was always the goal when working for private clients.
Still doing artwork and designing various products from table linens to greeting cards to holiday decorations, Michele continues to have a unique and diverse style she brings to her work. Her real purpose is to help people feel confidence and joy, so they can carry those qualities with them as they walk in their own lives, go out and change the world!
