~ grocery store flowers


I am a pretty committed instagrammer. I love sharing vignettes featuring my grocery store flower purchases. Here's a taste of what you're missing if you're not on instagram. If you are so inclined, follow me here

Some good old ivy and kalanchoe plants ~ my go-to combo!


Loved this rose combination...






Reminded me of our trip to California a couple years ago... 
Remember these pics from our visit to The Ivy?



Before the orange kalanchoe plants, I tried these vibrant cyclamen plants...



I was really into purple last month?






Always love orange roses!

I went nuts over the beautiful selection of dahlias this year!

More beautiful orange roses...










It's sad that my excitement level is about the same for fruits and vegetables as it is for flowers...  

Must be the color!

The winner of the Giddy Paperie 2015 Calendar is:

~ fall decor


I snapped these photos after the dealer dinner party a few weeks ago. It was nice getting my patio October-ready so early in the season.


We enjoyed those roses tucked in the topiaries for days! 







Pretty soon it will be time to put the cushions away for winter...




Here's a shot of my kale from last year... very purpley!

This year's kale... not as much purple, but I still love it.

Unusually large kale!

And a few October accents indoors as well...






Happy Fall!
