Words and Photos from the Weekend

I wasn't very good about taking photos this week, so I don't have too much to show for my week visually. Nonetheless, I had an absolutely delightful weekend. My family and friends surprised me with a bridal shower on Saturday and it was such a sweet day. I had a sneaking suspicion that my shower was approaching soon, but it was still nice to see how many people were in on the surprise. Though I didn't take any pictures at the shower, here's a few shots from the aftermath.

Some bright orange potted tulips I received as a gift. And the best thing about them - once they die, I'll just replant them and wait to see them sprout again come next spring! A gift that keeps on giving!

I love hydrangeas, so my mom bought some of these lovely blue-hued ones from Trader Joe's to decorate. This stalk was the only one of six that she purchased that weren't wilted and sad by the end of the day. I'm just glad at least one bunch was still in good enough form for me to photograph on my drive home!

My little sister Leanne bought me these gorgeous and colorful martini glasses I'd been eyeing at Pier 1 for quite some time. I originally had wanted to use them for candles but now I'm just not so sure. Any thoughts?


  1. As far as your hydrangea cutting, I found a link and this is also applied to lilacs.
    So, next time u will know...,:-)

  2. Ah thanks for the tips! I never would have thought that water temperature would have mattered, or that near-boiling water would be good for plants, but it's good to know that now! Thanks for stopping by and for helping me out!
