A Little Flower Power

flower

We aren’t even half way through February and I have major garden fever.  I’m craving bulbs, blooms, and bright happy colors.  I’m getting a little sick of looking out my window and seeing various shades of brown.  Sick, I tell you!!

A few weeks ago, it had warmed up to shockingly spring like temperatures.  In fact, we had almost three or four days of such warmth that you almost became used to it.  Except it was January, and not March….and one felt a little depressed.  But it wasn’t until I saw the tip of a little bloom from my spring bulbs that one realized the danger of such warmth.  And sure enough, within two days of the bulb sighting, we received 8 inches of snow.  Now all I can do is stare out the window at the snow covered flower bed, and hope my little bulb is okay.

So until the outside matches up with my wishes, I shall have to content myself with pictures, decorations, and dreams.  And just in case you are in the same boat as I am, I thought I would share some flower inspiration to keep out spirits up!

This 1840’s gown shows the dedication one person had to infuse their clothing with lovely little floral accents.  I wonder if she did this during the dull days of winter?

While I would make sure to wait to wear these 1920’s shoes once the snow melted, I am most certain they would boost my spirits immensely!  Although, I would have to find a whole new outfit to match them….

With so many color and pattern choices in this 1930’s ad to choose from, I think I would like a frock in every floral pattern available!

Even though this would be a little too chilly to wear right now without a sweater, I can’t help but smile at those happy little rosebuds all over this full cotton sun dress!

Any table would instantly feel more springy and bright with a floral stand like this one from Pier One (link below.)

So until spring makes it’s way to my area, I shall find ways to bring a little more flower power into my life now!
