It has gone crazy with joy over the Phoenix heat!
And on a less organic but equally awesome note, I found the perfect flowers for the bookshelf! As I mentioned in my last post, I needed something stunning to serve as the decorative note that pulled the overall style together. I found cheap-looking flowers for about $40 at Wal-Mart...but I didn't want cheap-looking. Others I found were well over $100 - yikes! Instead I had a Michael's breakthrough. Their silk flowers are buy-one-get-one-free right now, so I got to splurge on the high-quality flowers and a nice vase. For a total of $35, I got this gorgeousness:
Forgive the tags still attached to the stems - I wanted to be sure they're perfect before I remove them!
Now I just have to find out how to make that fake water that goes in the bottom of the vase...
