…keeps the blues away! Oh internet, it’s cheesy, but it’s true. I took a cue from one of my favorite blogs, This Young House, and decided to bring some greenery into our humble abode. I don’t have much of a green thumb (I planted some flowers in the yard last year and neglected them into a short and painful death), but having some fresh flowers in the house is an easy trick to bring the outdoors in. The weather here is downright spring-like for the time being, so I felt it was my duty to start the spring season off right with some fresh blooms.
I picked these up from the ‘Teet (our neighborhood Harris Teeter grocery store) for a whopping $4.00 and spread them out between 2 vases in our house – one in our almost finished living room and one in the kitchen. If 4 dollars every once in a while will put a smile on my face, I think it’s quite worth our hard earned dough.
Putting flowers next to the kitchen sink isn’t something I had thought of, but it’s actually quite brilliant. You get to see them constantly (furthering your enjoyment) and it makes scrubbing off caked-on food much more pleasant.
Plus, flowers give me a chance to use my new 50mm lens and perfect my soon to be amazing photog skills. Swoon.
p.s. apparently I’ve been spelling “lens” wrong for quite some time. My awesome photog abilities just went down a notch. ouch.
