Hello and happy Monday afternoon! I hope  you had a wonderful Easter. First order of business is to announce the winner of the beautiful silver tray. Congratulations goes to…


Please contact me to provide your shipping details, as soon as the container arrives, your tray will be on it’s way to it’s new home!


Our Easter was very nice and so relaxing, spent part of the day/night in NYC and it was hopping no pun intended:)  Hope you are enjoying the spring weather…its been cool but beautiful and the trees and dormant flowers are ever so slowly starting to wake up from their long winter nap, love it! I actually opened up my windows the other day which reminded me of the small pleasures in life:)

So last week I shared with you my fun adventure to the NY flower market (click here if you missed it) and today I am going to share with you part 2, what happened when those flowers came home with me:) So here we go with what might be one of my favorite posts ever!

STOP! If you do not love flowers (and I mean L O V E) or blue and white then no need to read any further. Yes there are a lot of pictures here and yes I was like a mad scientist who was unstoppable (oh but what fun it was) and yes I took out the big guns to photograph these (my Nikon “good” camera) sometimes you just can’t beat a “real” camera’s picture quality and finally if you are like me, blue and white and flowers together can cause heart palpitations….takes one to know one:)


First the loot on my kitchen counter top (yes another reason I desperately need a greenhouse)!


This HUGE box of fresh moss for $30!


Are these not the most beautiful color!


Whipping out the ginger jars to help make my flowers come alive, thankfully  have tons of small jars


The tulips took my breath away…….


Laying out my “ingredients”


These roses were $10.00! They were on their third day so I got them at a bargain and loved the color and slightly aged look…they worked beautifully


Ta dah! My first arrangement:) and this flower below  is not only so beautiful but lasts sooooo long!


And  this is when I got busy with my many arrangements, did I say many:)

Then like little soldiers they were discharged from my kitchen into many areas around my house…..



I think the green, ivory and soft pink are so beautiful together



Loved the grouping on my living room  mantle


Aren’t flowers in mint julep cups so pretty?


Dining room mantle was shown some love too:)

The flowers inspired me to set up a beautiful table for two….

They were perfect on my hall chest as a beautiful blue and white vignette



Another combination that shows how you can mix real and faux (cherry blossoms)

A full and luscious arrangement in my living room on a side chest



I even snapped a picture for an ad that I will feature…and love the way it came out (you are seeing it here first)!


And finally 7 days later they are still here, yes they are in their later stage of life but miraculously are still so beautiful. No way are they getting thrown away until there are no petals left, I enjoyed this way too much and want to savor every last drop (petal)!


Think I had fun? YES I did:) Thank you for stopping in and sharing my flower journey with  me. I laughed thinking I was upset that I had not planned anything around getting to share all these flowers then I reminded myself I am getting to share them with thousands and thousands of my best friends….you! And it doesn’t get better than that. I have a feeling there will be more “flower binges” to come. Until next time……

As always l love seeing all the pictures you post. I am a lover of flowers no matter the season, the color or the flower. I just cannot get enough. Last year I planted impatians in the front of my house, and people came in the yard to check out the ‘hedges’. They got that big and were stunning. Thank you so much for sharing.

Your blog is really a treat, but why am I getting two separate posts with a different header but identical content every day?

Tina, these are just the most lovely flowers I have ever seen, especially the tulips in that blush pink. You Do need a greenhouse I think. But most of all, I love how you have found your signature style and are so true to it. I wish I could get there….

Absolute elegant beauty. I love the flowers on the green tablecloth. The greenery mixed with the tulips and roses really makes the cloth pop! I know you worked tirelessly on this project and it shows.

Ann on

Your arrangements are lovely and you are so talented! Thanks for sharing. Apologies if already asked, but how did you transport your flowers from NY to Georgia?

Bobbie Hathaway on

Simply gorgeous, Thank you for sharing.

Miriam Landsman on

Tina, You don’t need a greenhouse just a floral cooler. Take it from me a retired floral designer!

Karen on

Tina, thank you for sharing all your many talents. The absolute most beautiful flowers and arrangements!!! Always a joy to read your posts.

Beldav on

Gorgeous and inspiring!

I will share a little secret that I learned years ago re tulips. Sometimes you want them to droop beautifully as most of the ones you arranged did in the lovely blue/white pieces. But other times, you want them to stand straight–or if they are a little “tired” when you bring them home and want to revive them–real copper pennies in the vase work beautifully. However, these are now almost impossible to find so I had the bright idea to send my husband to the hardware store to buy me a length of heavy gauge pure copper wire. Hysterically, he came home with enough to supply the whole neighborhood. I wrapped about 7-8″ around a spice bottle to form a coil and I just drop that into the vase when I’m arranging tulips. Works every time and seems to make them last longer.

Oh my gosh, Tina, your photos are absolutely stunning! I loved the “little soldiers” statement!

Donna C on

Such a wonderful assortment of flowers and vases.. My favorite were the ones in the Julep cup. I think i am going to “steal” that idea. Those colors look fabulous in silver.. your posts are very inspiring!! I appreciate them.
