Happy Sink Flowers

Posted: May 14th, 2009 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

I’m officially hooked on happy sink flowers.

Do you know even know what I mean by “Happy Sink Flowers?” I guess it  is a term that I have made up in my own head? (I do that a lot). It comes from the people who say that fresh flowers next to the sink make them happy. And I now agree.
I have tried this for a couple months by just putting fresh flower(s) from my yard or from the store in a pretty little vase.






But for me, it’s like Christmas in May when these pianis come up in my side yard. Although they have not exactly bloomed yet, I still just had to drop a couple in a votive holder and place them in my bathroom.



The other day I found a really cute vase at Hobby Lobby for two buckaroos that I dressed up with a ribbon and a pop of color! And since Melissa is having her Friday Beautiful Life party today I thought I would also borrow a little inspiration from her new green chairs!


And then I went crazy with the extra peach carnation from church on Mother’s Day, and put it in a votive in my office. Love it! I think I might be addicted…


Seriously, now when I’m driving around I tend to have the desire to stop and pick flowers from yards.

I’m not saying I do - I just want to!!

I have more obsession with all things flowers, including my take on using flower pots and other fellow bloggers creative flowering ideas, in my newsletter that I’m sending out in a couple days.
