Hello everyone! Are you ready for the weekend to arrive? Here in Arizona it is a windy and cool day but nothing compared to my friends in Germany! I have a tradition of buying flowers on Friday for some reason. This began a long time ago when I lived in London where I would visit my favorite shop The White Orchid in Esher. Oh how I love the smell and energy in a flower shop. Do you ever notice how happy everyone is when they are around flowers? In Germany I enjoy the Isemarkt on Friday because it is then I can stock up on flowers for a good 10 days. Here in the U.S. it is harder to find good quality flowers but I have a few places that get fresh buds from California every day.
My tradition of “Friday flower shop” looks the same every time. I get dressed, load the whippets in the car and head to Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf for the most amazing vanilla latte in the world (for me). While I sip on my coffee goodness I drive south to a little hole in the wall flower shop packed full of fresh fragrant flowers. Today I took full advantage of the Freesia they had in stock. I love the smell and look of this beautiful flower, don’t you? This is when I wish technology had a scratch n’ sniff option!
As you can see these flowers fit nicely on a side table on a book. I chose to put these on a book but you could always set them alone to be the star of the show. Do you see my new little Jonathan Adler gold horse, how cute is he? I don’t have a name for him yet!
What flowers do you have in your home right now? Do you have a favorite for this time of the season? I wish you all a beautiful weekend filled with all the things you love!
