Soft and Sweet

Hello and happy Friday to you! I hope you're all doing well. I figured I should put up a post since it's been what..three weeks? Sigh. I don't know what's with me lately. I guess I just haven't been feelin' it. I'm having a lack of creative inspiration or some such thing.  Maybe it has to do with winter...I don't know.

It seems like the moment January arrives and the holidays are a thing of the past, my brain starts to think of Spring and sunshine and flowers and all that goes along with that.

Awhile back I purchased some vintage pink books from Tracey at French Larkspur. I'd been meaning to photography them, but never got around to it until now. I bought some roses, mixed it all together and this is what I got.

Very soft, sweet and feminine. I love the color of these flowers. It reminds me of the peonies I love so much. I keep going to the florist hoping to see peonies or ranunculus, my two favorites. No luck yet though. I always wonder what they think when they see me coming...probably dollar signs considering how often I'm there to buy flowers :)

Hope you all have a warm and cozy weekend!

Photo Favorites from 2012

Hi everyone! Long time, no see. I hope you all had a wonderfully happy Christmas and New Year. The holidays were pretty good around here. It seemed like I was always busy with my kids, but in a good sort of way. My little people have returned to school now and, I have to admit, it feels kind of nice to be settling back into a routine.

Anyway, now that things have calmed down a bit I finally have some time for blogging. I thought I'd do a recap of 2012 by selecting a few favorite photos. While the cute faces of my children are my absolute favorites, I noticed as I started looking through my old posts that I was mostly choosing flowers so I thought I'd go with that for a theme. Last year seemed to be about flowers and the previous year was food. I wonder what 2013 has in store for me?

I've put a link underneath each photo if you want to see what the post was all about.

I really love these first two photos. It's something about the softness and the light. Oh and probably because I can see the grass too!! Now that Christmas is over I'm like, "Alright, it's time for the snow to melt and for spring and summer to get here." Yeah, I'm not living in the moment to well.

The photo below was in my most viewed post of all time...wish I knew why so I could repeat it :)

Peonies! Oh, one of my most absolute favorite flowers. I can't wait to start seeing those again...ranunculus too...love those!

In the post above I showed my version of the big Restoration Hardware shelf that the Mister and I made...I love how it turned out and that I have lots of room for all my dishes now.

Well, there ya go...my little flower photo recap for 2012.

I hope that your New Year is off to good start and that the next twelve months bring only happiness and blessings your way. Thank you so much for all of your visits and friendship over the past year.

Tricia ♥
