My House Smells Really Good!

Do you buy grocery store flowers?

One of our local stores had a floral coupon I couldn't resist last week.  And, even though it took 3 different stores to find one with a decent fresh selection, 
I came out with an armload.  

Ray is even convinced that he know just which grocery store has the best flowers and the best selection.  That's just fine with me...more bang for your buck and I'd rather stick them in a vase myself, anyway.

I love stargazer lilies.  Just about the time one dies off, another is ready to burst open and show off it's brilliant colors.  

I've enjoyed these as a reminder that Spring is just around the corner!

P.S.-  I dropped my camera-on the brick kitchen floor!-right in the middle of taking these pics.  I didn't take my friend Sumer's advice to USE THE NECK STRAP every time you pick up your camera!  As far as I can tell we just lost the LCD screen, which we have already replaced once before so it shouldn't be too complicated (or expensive) of a fix.  
Little blessings!


  1. They look beautiful! I might just need to get some stargazer lilies, I'm always looking for long lasting options. I've concluded that getting them for a great price makes just them smell a little bit sweeter. I actually just did a post on making flowers last last week.
    I love your blog, you have great taste. Keep up the great work!

  2. I'm thankful you got a shot of the flowers! :) Twice I've dropped my camera and had to replace it, I always wear the strap, now! Hope yours is a quick fix!

  3. Beautiful flowers ~ I love lilies too. Just bought a little "on sale" white gerbera daisies last week. LOVE having fresh flowers in the house.

    Just found your blog and I'm so glad I did! I'm now following and look forward to getting to know you.

    Stop by and say hi when you can ~


  4. I love fresh flowers! I'm always partial to tulips so not much of a fragrant smell. We have roses in our backyard that smell so pretty when we bring them inside- can't wait for that!

  5. GASP!!!! Forget the flower post! Is your baby okay? (That would be the camera. Haha.) I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS use the strap.


  6. I love fresh flowers and I do buy them from the grocery store. In fact, they are on my shopping list this week.

    Stargazers are beautiful, aren't they?
