i know it’s bad and wrong and i realize i’m not helping the green cause much because of this, because i know the fuel it takes to truck these things around the country, but i was feeling a tad blue and could not help myself! i had to buy those peonies, i had to get them some friends, and i had to take them home and put them in my anne black vase. and they needed to be pink.

    I’m dying to see the tile and I love that little creature!

    hi paula,

    you crack me up! the tile is from gabrielle schaffner and that crazy wooden pink and purple cat was made by a canadian artist, christina luck.

    nice 2 c u!

    It’s okay Gigi. We all deserve some indulgence now and then, and what that means is different for everyone. I’m sure you’ve racked up a ton a good karma buying locally and handmade. It is funny though when we set these rules for ourselves, and go wild and break a little one. I’m Ms. Organic Gourmet, yet every once in a while I just need a junky candy bar or fast food french fries. Besides, the flowers are beautiful and if they brought a little sunshine into a “blue” day, I’m sure the Local Gods will forgive you 🙂

    hi bri,

    my pile of handmade gifts is growing and so i can only hope i’m putting good things out into the universe. but i’m still enjoying the flowers. 🙂

    thanks for sharing your story and for stopping by!
