Spruce it up!

Hello! Long time no post!

I thought I'd share one of my favorite ways to make rooms in my home feel good! Now that spring is here all of our neighborhood markets are full of gorgeous cut flowers! Flowers add texture and a natural punch to any room. I've put cut flowers in my kitchen, living room, and even the bathroom! I love having them in a spot I see when I walk into my home. There's nothing like coming home from a crazy day at work and seeing fresh cut flowers the moment you walk in. This is one of the key ingredients to making your home a sanctuary. It's a small investment that will make a tremendous difference in the mood and energy of your home!

I got these beauties for $3.50 at Trader Joe's and they're four days old but still lovely! Tip for tulips: cut the bottom of the stem when you get them home and peel off any extra leaves. Just put the very tip of the stem in the water and they'll last for a week or more!
