I love flowers. Absolutely LOVE them. And I love being surrounded by them in the shop. So, it’s probably not a surprise that I take flowers home with me, though I don’t have an abundance of them, as some might expect. I spend most of my day at the shop, so just a small touch of flowers at home is perfect for me.
I think of my kitchen as the center of my home, both physically and emotionally (!), and there’s usually a small vase of flowers on the kitchen table, next to the PC. Having coffee in the morning, reading the news via the internet, with a simple, yet beautiful vase of flowers next to me is the ideal way to start the day. Usually there’s a cat nearby as well!
I often use a cluster of 3 small vases (vintage milk bottles, mason jars, or bud vases) in which to put some of the blooms I’ve been admiring from the shop.
So, yes, in just above every way, I take my work home with me.
