Well, I have. And I just did.
I took this photo a few weeks ago while playing around with my new camera, and I ran across it again today. Aside from how unashamedly cute I think my outfit is (turquise and coral are soooo trendy these days), what struck me was how different (and reasonably clean) my house looks reflected in the mirror...and also how plain it seems.
I really thought I had more interesting things happening in the décor arena then what it appears. And you'd think being the gardener that I am, I'd have a few flowers and at least a houseplant or two sitting around.
But the reality is, I like simple décor. And as much as I adore all my plants and flowers out in the garden, I don't really need them inside.
Inside my home is a different world than outside my home, and that's how I like it.
Now that's not to say that plants are totally non-existent in my house. After all, I do have these bright and perky poppies in the dining room...
I bet you noticed.
And in keeping with the poppy theme, there's also this lovely arrangement:
Oh well, I'll live. And I'll probably live quite well, since I'll be dining on those heirloom tomatoes, fresh peppers and garlic tonight that I brought in from the garden.
I'm such a big spender.
Here is another $5 painting, this one of sunflowers, that I stuck in my under-renovation bathroom to hid an ugly, unfinished wall...and two years later it's still hanging there hiding the still ugly, still unfinished wall.
Apparently I have other things to do with my time than renovate the bathroom. Like play outside in the real sunflower patch.
And I hate to tell you this, but through no intention of my own, I'm ending this post in the toilet--or above the toilet, to be exact, since that's exactly where this thing hangs!
And no, I'm not showing you that.
But I have to draw the line somewhere, and I had to make my point (if only to myself) that I do have plenty of flowers in my house.
They're just not alive. But there are plenty of live ones outside, and since that's where I spend most of my time anyway, I end up surrounded by them almost all day, almost every day.
And that's what makes me a happy gardener...and a wanna-be stylish one too. Let's take another look at that outfit...
Hey, sometimes you just gotta celebrate the successes...
What?! Normal people don't do that?
Well, you learn something new everyday.
