Lonny Mag

I have had these pictures from the last issue of Lonny Mag saved to my desktop for the past few weeks.  Here are some things that caught my eye…

Love the use of color and style mixture in this photo.

Beautiful table and clean looking room.

Those chairs are fab!

Loving the peacock considering that is the color I have added into my family room. I should finally have a house tour coming in the next few months!

More peacock and gold. Love it

Love the butterfly and some good roman shades.

ashley rachelle - that peacock color is one of my favs too! but i hadn’t thought to pair it with gold–love it!! thanks for the inspiration!

Fresh Flowers

Oh how I love fresh flowers.  It would be so ideal to have them delivered weekly.  When we went on our cruise a few weeks back we visited Seattle and I got to walk through an amazing fresh flower market.  I wanted to get a batch just for my tiny cruise room.  Anyway, I wanted to share one of my favorite places to get flowers locally.  Trader Joes has fabulous flowers at such great prices.  Check out this batch of gladiolus that I got for $1.99.  Find your local Trader Joes and add a punch of color to your house!

Anybody else have a favorite place to get flowers?

Happy Monday!

 

Annie - Gotta love Trader Joes! They have some great floral options!

Deanna Fountain - On the subject of flowers: I’m always looking out for those places off the beaten path where treasures such as fresh flowers can be had. 3 such places came to mind when you asked the question in your post about Trader Joes. TJ’s are so convenient and accessible for flowers and so are Fresh n Easy or Whole Foods Market, however !!! I once grabbed a flower bouquet located conveniently by the check-out area in one of these stores and ran home with my purchase only to find 1/2 of the bouquet under the cello had gone partially brown, so I’ve learned that in such situations, or when in a hurry, duh…look under the cello 1st ! I live in So Cal and I’m 2 hrs from The LA ROW Shopping District where among’st a shoppers mecca for anything you can think of there’s the Flower Mart….even if you never make a purchase in this place it’s well worth a visit,a feast for the eyes and nose. Idea #2 I live in Palm Desert and we have Farmer’s Market here and in nearby La Quinta on altering days,I believe that there’s more than my town where farmer’s makts are popular, lots of flowers, fruit, veggies, botanical’s and more…it’s a joy to buy there because typically you must be the actual grower-farmer to have a booth, I could spend hours just chatting with all of the vendors at the Farmer’s Market, you can learn so much and there’s never been anyone I’ve ever met that didn’t enjoy talking about their own business. For example I had a conversation with an orchid farmer who told me how I could change the color of the orchid by what I added to the water ! who knew? #3 Finally, I like many of us who travel love to grab a fresh bouquet to bring back to the room/vacation home / cruise cabin. I noticed that if I keep my eyes peeled oft times near a hwy or freeway in resort areas there are either vendors selling flowers under an umbrella or even a hut that is a regular location to find flowers and greenery of all kinds, cut, potted, arranged in a porcelain urn or vase…quite a fun experience. Once in Hawaii I bought an arrangement and found a beautiful vase later in the resort gift shop, the vase was made of bamboo, it was bleached blond and very tall…so my purchase housed those flowers and doubled as a souvenir of my Hawaiian vacation to take home with me. I think I’ll get to my blog now to write about flower adventures on the road.
