cottage fix Friday flowers from that more than fabulous day!

Happy Friday! Yes, I’m still carrying on about that more than fabulous day. I really just want to savor it, ya know. These are the beautiful flowers my sweet Honey brought me last week. It’s been a full week and they look even better than when he first gave them to me, that’s one of the great things about carnations.Cottage Fix blog - Friday flowers - pale bouquet in a straw toteHe cracks me up. He always is sure to get long stems, baby’s breath, and what he calls the “green filler”. He wants me to enjoy a proper bouquet of course. Wink. They ended up in a straw tote hanging on the door to our guest room — aka our game room. It’s down the hall from our bedroom and the first thing I see coming and going up and down the stairs, so I get to enjoy them a lot. Does anyone else seem to be constantly running up and down the stairs with a puppy in one hand and a basket of laundry balancing on their head (not hardly)? Cottage Fix blog - pale carnation bouquet in a straw toteI love how the pale bouquet looks in here with the pale yellow walls, that’s why I chose the guest room. I love this room so much I thought about painting our bedroom pale yellow too. But somehow I just don’t think it would be the same, and there’s also the gray carpeting that I would need to contend with. No, I think I’ll just enjoy the happy yellow when I’m in the guest room here.

Have a lovely weekend.

    Your flowers look so beautiful in your straw bag! Your hubby did good!!! I love the pattern the lace curtain puts on your wall, so pretty:) I love pale yellow and it’s a color I plan on using after we’re in a place of our own (which is hopefully before the end of the year, fingers crossed!).

    Enjoy the yard sales tomorrow, I hope you find some good treasures!!!

    Your husband is so sweet to bring you flowers! They are so pretty. I love the “filler” that he included. Ha! I can see why you really like that guest room. It is so inviting and serene. Your guests will not want to leave!
