Flowers of the Week: 1.31.11

Happy last Monday in January my dears!  Can you believe it?  One month of the new year already gone.  I am in serious need for time to slow down.  Golly, I haven't even thought too much about Valentine's Day...and now it is only two weeks away.  Eeek, need to get going on some things! 

It's funny how I love Valentine's Day, but I am not a red person at all.  I think I own one pair of red shorts, and a HOT pair of red summer sandals.  So I never do red for Valentine's Day...it's just not me.  But if I was to get a bouquet of flowers for Valentine's Day, I wish it looked like this one...
Flowers of the Week
Now this is so my style!  Soft, light, and a mixture of textures.  I am loving the combination of succulents, billy buttons, and irises (amongst other flowers) aren't you? 

How was your weekend?  Ever so lovely, I hope.  Mine was quite nice, and pretty mellow.  We ended up with rain on Saturday and Sunday...so it kept me inside more than I had hoped.  However, last night it was make your own pizza night and playing Pictionary on the Wii, which was boat loads of fun!

And speaking of drawing...I will be drawing the winner of the Handmade Weddings book this morning, and announcing the winner later today.  So stay tuned!

  10. I am MORE than with you on the red flower thing... SO not interested in red roses, however other red flowers combined with lambs ear and berries I'm ok with... or better still something summery like this one... since it is summer here!! Beautiful!
