We went to the Farmer's Market and splurged on three different bouquets to mix together (still only $12 total - you have to love the market). Frilly pink lisianthus, deep fuchsia ranunuculus and tall white snapdragons play well together.
And thank you all for your helpful words of wisdom and encouragement last Friday. I'm happy to say that we signed a lease on a new (two bedroom) apartment yesterday and we'll be starting the moving process next week! Crazy, right? The homebody in me is pacified because it is literally two doors down from our current beloved apartment, which minimizes moving issues and means I don't have to adjust to all new neighbors. It's the best of both worlds.
So I guess that means this is the last week of Friday flowers in my little apartment. Although you might not notice the difference because we'll obviously have all the same furniture.
Don't worry - you'll be getting LOTS more information (and pictures!) in the coming weeks. I'm going to have moving on the brain. I will try my best to post pictures of things other than cardboard boxes, but I can't guarantee anything.
Happy moving, my dear!ReplyDelete
so so happy for you...can't wait to see what you do with the new space!ReplyDelete
i love love LOOOOOOVE ranunculus!! and that fuchsia is so deep you can feel it. amazing.ReplyDelete
can't wait to see how you decorate the new digs. i bet you have projects that you've been dreaming up that the new apartment will need...or be fitting for...or what-have-you :o) so excited for you to have a little more space to spread out and GROW!
There is nothing like moving and staying in the same neighborhood. I always prefer this so I don't have to find a new drycleaner, grocery store, running routes, etc.ReplyDelete
such happy news rachel! in north carolina we moved from our first apartment to one less than two blocks away, but those two blocks made ALL the difference. sending good thoughts your way as you pack!ReplyDelete
two doors down! how lucky! it will make things so much smoother for you.ReplyDelete
woohoo! happy new home, rachel. can't wait to hear how it goes.ReplyDelete
simply gorgeous, what a lovely beginning to the weekend :)ReplyDelete
happy moving! how nice that you'll be staying in the same neck of the woods.ReplyDelete
we're getting ready to move ourselves. can't wait to see how it goes. i'm sure you'll love the new space.
Good luck with the move!ReplyDelete
beautiful flowers - I wish we got ranunuculus but i never seem to be able to find it.ReplyDelete
I love and hate moving. I hate the physical process of it but I love the opportunity to go through your things and find out what you need, what you want, and what you can give away. Usually I give away clothes that I had forgotten I had.ReplyDelete
I love snapdragons!
Hooray! And only 2 doors down? That's pretty much the best you could hope for with moving. I'm looking forward to hearing about/seeing the new place and how you decorate!ReplyDelete
Congrats! You've been talking about business overflowing your space for a bit, so hooray for more room (and a hopefully-easy move!) PS: I apologize for this tackiness, but I hope you got the very belated thank you package I sent...? I only ask because I'd sent a friend a package once, and her apartment office never told her they received it for her! A-hem -- Yea lovely flowers on the cheap, too :)!ReplyDelete
Congrats, Rachel! I will really have to treasure my time in your old apartment tomorrow! Thanks for grabbing the science stuff, too. I appreciate it!ReplyDelete
YAY!! Congrats. I know you'll love the extra space and, of course, it will be beautiful once you get in and arrange everything. I can't wait to see lots of pictures!ReplyDelete
The best part of moving so close is you could (theoretically) save on boxes . . . I once moved (not quite as close as 2 doors down) and boxed up books in Rubbermaid plastic tubs, took them to the new place, stacked 'em and took the empty tubs back for more. It worked out well for most of the move.ReplyDelete
congrats on the new apartment! and good luck moving! shouldn't be too bad since you aren't going that far!ReplyDelete
and beautiful flowers as always. every friday I think, man, I need to get some flowers! but I never do! at least I have yours to look at :)
Congrats and God speed with the move!ReplyDelete
I need these for my house. So pretty!ReplyDelete
I love Farmer's Market flowers!ReplyDelete
those flowers are stunning! i always wished i was good at putting together a lovely bouquet, they brighten a room like nothing else.ReplyDelete
good luck moving! hopefully it will be a cinch since it's not too far!
