Flowers & afternoon light...


My husband came home today with a gorgeous bouquet of red roses and an adorable tiny birthday cake for me (my birthday is coming up next week). He had the cake decorated in pink, which I love. I put the roses in the living room where I can easily see them and enjoy their beauty and his thoughtfulness. I just love how the afternoon light is casting a glow, too.
Wishing all of you a wonderful day...

Summer flowers...


My limelight hydrangea (known as Ralph) is a glorious huge beast this year, and putting out a plethora of simply gorgeous blooms. I cut a large bunch for myself and another bunch just as large for a friend of mine, and I didn’t even make a dent in his beauty. Long may he live.

A new look...


I thought it was time for a different look on the blog, so I redesigned things. I always think I’ll go ultra minimalist, but I never do. (I’m sure some of you can relate.) This is much more of a pared-down look, though, and I’m really loving it. Hope you like it.

The beauty of a single rose...


One of the perks of working in a creative field is you are a part of making something creative, something beautiful. Sometimes that means you come back to your desk to things like a single rose, left for you and the other women on the team after a photo shoot. I brought mine home and put it in an old handblown vase from my mom’s china cabinet ~ given to me, of course, because it was pink. It is now sitting on my desk, looking quite lovely, so I thought I would share its beauty.
