A Handful of Blue Irises!

good afternoon!

do you ever buy flowers for yourself?

i do...

these reminded me of a trip down to south australia
where i saw handpainted signs at murray bridge
advertising blue irises in bunches by the roadside...

maybe they were grown there
and came all the way to queensland
to be bought by me,
this morning!

i love my vase cuff,
sent to me earlier this year
by teje..from crete,
blog owner of 'nero's post & patch'.

it covers up the waterline
giving a streamlined look to a vase of flowers..
it is unique and handmade, 
 from felted wool...


look after yourself today...

  1. I love irises Carol their colour takes my breath away. That gorgeous cuff is a great idea- might have to steal that one.

  2. Gorgeous flowers Carol! I never buy myself flowers, but out of the blue I did the other day. They were on special for $7 and I smile everytime I look at them. $7 well spent I think :)

  3. I love irsis - one of my fav flowers. Yes I do buy myself flowers. Actually when ever the Dear One and I have a big tiff I go out and by myself flowers to make myself feel better. He's not the flower buying type!

  4. Irises are my second favourite flower (top of the list is lillies, third are poppys!) and these are just so beautiful. As is the vase. Love it (and the binding around it too.) xx

  5. gorgeous Carol! I adore Irises. I always buy flowers for myself. We have a lovely bunch of Tulips in a vase right now.

    Hope you are having a good week.


  6. It's funny to think you have irises growing now, they are here too but that's because it's summer (apparently anyway!). x

  7. Oh Irises are such a beautiful flower. I have always had a major crush on them. The blue particularly, but I also like the white ones very much. Thanks for sharing these little lovelies :o)

  8. I love fresh cut flowers! I am trying to get a cutting garden going at my new home....Enjoy! Blessings!

  9. I used to buy flowers for myself... I haven't done it for a long time. Hasn't even crossed my mind lately. Your irises are lovely and so is the vase cuff.

  10. These are lovely! The color is just gorgeous! Enjoy the wonderful day, Kellie xx

  11. Blue irises are in my top 5 favourite flower. I may do the same and treat myself to some too.


i am delighted that you care enough to comment..i love to read each one of them..thank you!
