Flowers for the Table...



I've been pretty busy in the kitchen this week.  When I bought the food for this week, I did my customary glance at the flowers for sale in the corner of the produce section and decided to skip it...  there wasn't much that caught my eye and I was in a bit of a rush. I came home, put away the groceries and moved on to the next thing. 

Oh how I missed my little weekly bunch of flowers!  Each time I peered over the ledge in our kitchen to our dining room, I missed them.  As I set the table for lunch, I missed them.  When I cleared the dishes and crumpled napkins, I missed them.  So today I bought a bunch of roses and made up a little bouquet with pink wax flowers (I think!) and eucalyptus that I already had.  Normally I keep things simple by just choosing one flower to fill a vase, but the starkness of our January seemed to call for a little bit of opulence.

What is your favorite pick-me-up?

With such a cold winter, we have enjoyed scented candles thought the house.
