Okay, so my birthday was actually yesterday.
My husband surprised me with a dozen roses and breakfast in bed yesterday morning.
Isn't that sweet?
However, I always find it hard to display them.
I'm really not a fan of the cliche roses and baby breath jammed into a run-of-the-mill vase.
It screams "cheesy Valentine's Day present" all over it.
How do you mix cheesy roses with an antique-loving country-girl-at-heart?
Cut the roses short and display them in Ball canning jars!
Too bad I don't have any antique turquoise ones.
Oh well, can't be picky, can we?
I love how flowers can brighten up any room.
I'm getting pretty excited lately.
My bearded irises just poked their heads out, so I know it's not too far off when my lilac bushes will be in full bloom.
The usually bloom in May.
