Happy Monday to you!! I hope your weekend was lovely as a bee’s bug in a rug. Thanks for knocking my socks off with all of your kind comments on the Good Stella post.
Holy cow. You totally pulled me out of my tired and admittedly lil’ bit spunky week. (The hubby can attest to that.. y’know he is a real Saint for putting up with me at times.) OK. I am so relieved to be feeling back to my regular ole energetic, vintage loven, Post Road partying self! Today I’m sharing some PreValentines fun.. let’s just say I owe it to him after last week.
He bought me roses. (Never mind that I threw in the request.) I went nuts for a couple shoots and articles I had to finish for some magazines. (Can’t wait to share them with ya!)
Lucky, lucky that I had a bunch of roses left over (I seriously recommend you requesting this too.. some say that ruins the effect.. naw, not me. I’ll score flowers any way they come. haha) All the Christmas decor is down. Everything except this Eucalyptus garland. It was sorta Christmas-y but I loved it too much to part ways.
So how bout swapping out the wreath for some strung up jars? I was inspired by the hanging mason jars in my shop but couldn’t quite decide what should go in them. Candles? Flowers? Love letters? Finally I settled on plain Jane. Something to make the passerby-ers say, “hmmmm…” Which is by the way my favorite response of all when I’m decorating. I LURVE doing things that feel a lil borderline, ugly ‘n questionable, because usually that’s where my best ideas will pop up from.
These fresh roses stayed in these sweet music tags perfectly! I tried sticking them in the envelope part of the tag but it made them swing and sway every which way until I was dizzy with the intoxicating smell. But when I trimmed that stem short and stuck it straight into the punched hole it stayed. Wah-Lah! I have no idea how but I think it may have to do with Newton’s Law of Gravity! (no, science was never my strong point)
I know these will dry and be even purtier than before… in the meantime maybe you have a really good idea what I should fill those jars with? So pretty catching the sunlight.
I hope you have a *romantic week
