Friday flowers (moving edition)

We got the keys to our new apartment today (squee!), which means we've been systematically tearing apart our old apartment for the entire week, in preparation.

My flowers from last week are going strong, and I appropriated a few of them for a tiny arrangement. My mom found this beautiful milk glass bud vase in a thrift store and snatched it up for me (she knows me well) and I needed to get it into circulation ASAP, even though there isn't much point in putting flowers around the house when everything else is already in boxes.

I've got my fingers crossed for a nice smooth move this weekend. I'm aiming for no more than 2 moving related freak outs. Because aiming for none would be unrealistic.

  1. The vase is beautiful. You must have inherited the thrift store gene from your mom. :)
    Good luck with the move!

  2. You can do it! Moving with minimal tears is possible. I think.

    Either way, what lovely flowers!

  4. I always beat myself up for having those little stress-induced melt-downs. No more! Allowing for a couple of them is highly sensible. Happy moving!

  17. I have a weird question....you said your apartment is two doors down? Does that literally mean two doors down, or like, two buildings down? Cause i would not pack anything if that was the case, and just carry it next door! lol

  18. hope it went well!!! the worst move we ever made was from one bedroom to a 2 bedroom in the same comlex.
    we didn't really pack because we thought it would be so easy...but we ended up making a million little trips...it was at least a 6 freak out move!
    wishing better for you :)
