Actually, my birthday celebration has been postponed as I'm feeling a bit under the February weather. (So I guess I'm not a year older yet, right??) I had planned on a special blog post, but feel too drained from this nasty cold.
Plus, our little Mocha dog has also been really sick. She barely ate in 5 days! Many visits to the vet's office, Mocha is finally home and doing better.
So when things perk up, I hope to celebrate my blog anniversary with a special giveaway to thank all of you.
Since I like to always end on a positive note, I'll share a beautiful flower arrangement I received from Tom :) The arrangement was made by my friend and talented florist, Ellen Seagraves.
Here is the stunning arrangement by Ellen Seagraves. Ellen knows my style and favorite colors. She and I have worked together on various projects over the last 10 years.
Shades of whites, greens and grays are repeated.
Here are white ranunculus, green brunia berries and gardenia leaves.
I love the contrast of textures and shapes: soft dusty millers, compact lime green hydrangeas, wiry tree ferns and glossy gardenia leaves.
Above: white tulips with green eryngium.
Green hanging amaranthus (above) and white roses with silvery white astrantia (below).
