a moment + some fun news...



Finally have some time to sit and relax tonight! It's been a busy day and then I was off to ballet right after work. Still loving a simple, white chair like this one, to relax into with a cup of tea... it seems like such a nice, little "calm" corner, doesn't it? And how beautiful are those poppies? (*Update: Someone just let me know they're called Anemones, commonly confused with poppies, good to know!). I saw some at my local flower shop today, but in bright pinks, orange and yellow. The crepe-like texture of the petals is just gorgeous!

Also, I was totally surprised to find out yesterday that Blogger picked Dress, Design & Decor as a "Blog of Note"! How cool is that? Thanks to Blogger and welcome to all the new visitors dropping by!

I like how the poppies are matching but the different centers add some spice to the arrangement

Congrats!! And, btw I bought some of those flowers too at our Central Market. They're Anemones..very easy to confuse with poppies which have a much thinner crepe paperlike petal and a curly, almost wirey stem.
