It has been a week since Valentine's Day, and some of you have mentioned you are clearing away the red and white in favor of the looks of spring. I haven't ever shared my Valentine surprise with those of you who follow this blog, so before any more time passes, here is what The Husband gave me.
|Last Thursday morning.|
The flowers were a surprise! He can be rather secretive when the occasion demands it. He kept them in the car overnight since I was sure to see them had they been refrigerated. Yes, it was cold in the garage last Wednesday night.:-)
That is a Longaberger trivet on the table, once again a long-ago purchase.
The flowers are still looking very nice! Keeping fresh water in them helps, of course.:-) And - I like that the mug will go in my collection after the flowers are no longer around.
As I write this, another winter storm is heading across the United States. I hope those of you in its path will come through the storm without any ill effects.
Thank you for reading. I appreciate your comments.
What a beautiful, happy arrangement! The Husband is most thoughtful, and he does know how to keep things secret when the occasion demands it. You are blessed, and I hope those flowers stay lovely for a few more days! :-)ReplyDelete
How sweet of him! :-)ReplyDelete
Now as to colors we use, in decoration, in our houses.... I think that should be an entirely personal choice.
If you still resonate with red and white, why should you *have* to put that away, to bring out pastels??? Why? No reason!!!
Me-thinks we all/each need to go with whatever resonates with US! All the time. No Seasonal Rules for Colors. Silly that! "Auntie" sezzzzzz... :-)
Your flowers are beautiful! Your hubby did good!!!!ReplyDelete
That storm is headed for us to tomorrow- I am SO sick of all this snow and cold. Your flowers are a bright bit of cheer for a dreary day-xo Diana
Your Hubby gave you some very sweet flowers and yes, they still look great!ReplyDelete

I thought we were going to get a foot of snow, but I think it's been downgraded a bit to seven and a half! Only seven and a half inches of snow! Only!ReplyDelete
Your flowers are so cheery and pretty.
