Hey Boys... and Girls.

It's that time of year again. That time of year to show the one you love how much you love them by getting them something special... Or rather to get that girl that you've been casually dating to finally sleep with you. Boys, don't you know that flowers now means (maybe) you'll get laid later?
Ether way, we have your answer!
Liza from Peartree and I are joining forces for a Valentines Day Pop-up!

So go get yourself looking good with a trim and a shave, grab your gal some flowers, and get lucky!

One Arrangement. Two Ways.

Sous Style!

Let's talk about SOUS STYLE.
Its an awesome online magazine for the new generation of homemakers. Those of us mostly urban dwelling, trying to create gardens out of windowsills, secretly loving Martha Stewart, trying to cook indian food at home, restaurant obsessed, pining for our own green gardens kind of people who want a 3000 square foot home and lifestyle crammed into a realistic 600 square foot studio apartment.

If you didn't know, and maybe you do, I've been a contributor to the site for a little while now. I talk about flowers, and plants, and houseplants, and how to get more of all of it into your life.
Nothing too complicated or crazy.
Its meant to be easy and accessible ideas to help all of us make our lives and homes and little greener and a brighter.

This particular post was about Carnations. Because I LOVE CARNATIONS. I do. The colors that are around these days are amazing, like a floral acid trip.
And whats even more amazing, Carnations are cheap.
So why not give those cheap betties a chance?

ok maybe I am...
 Do you remember this? 

That bull gave me nightmares for weeks.


Ma Tumblr

I've been giving a lot of attention to the tumblr recently... which in reality means scrolling the interweb for whatever, screen shooting images I like, and reposting them. 
It's work. I swear? ok Maybe not.
But either way, I'm into the tumblr right now. Its not always of flower stuff. Although most of the time its related. Its a good reflection of what I'm attracted to aesthetically at a certain period. Back in September it was desert scenes. Right now everything is dark, saturated, and moody. I think because it's been so grey and rainy.
 Cold, but not that cold... mostly wet. 
But not even. 
I dont know. The weather is moody and its making me moody and thus the tumblr is moody.
Who knows next week, if the sun manages to come out for a second, I could be reposting unicorns and rainbows.

But I doubt it. See, the thing is, if you didn't already know...I'm not really a unicorns and rainbows kind of girl.

Emmy Lou Harris is always speckled throughout. Mostly because in my next life, I'd like to come back as Emmy Lou. And sing duets with John Prine.

Really enjoying these photos by William Eggleston
Makes me want to dress up in bright colored polyester, smoke some Newports, and hitch a ride to Tampa.

This lady reminds me of my late grandmother, Boom. 
Boom loved her Newports. 
And Tampa.

She also loved patterned polyester.
