Friday flowers

The mums held up so well that I didn't even get myself new flowers this week. I change the water every day, which helps give them a little more life.

mums, week 2
{mums, week two}

I also change the tablecloth pretty often, although not quite daily. It's yet another fabulous Ikea fabric. I can't get enough of them.

P.S. Thanks for all the cabinet love yesterday! For those of you who were asking about the colors, we used Behr paints from Home Depot in dark granite and limeaid.

  9. I love this IKEA fabric. I love all their prints, and the colors and print of that one goes beautiful with the llight pink flowers. And I agree with Cupcakes and Cashmere, paint names are super cute and fun!

  12. Hello Rachel, I've been dropping in on your blog for a little while now but I don't think I've ever stopped to say hello before. It's so lovely and calming here, I always go away feeling inspired (and hungry after seeing all your yummy culinary creations!). Gorgeous photos too. All in all I'd say you definitely have life down pretty well :)
