My house could be filthy, but if I have some flowers in a few vases, some cute pillows, music playing and a candle burning — I can remain clear headed. Right now, my floors need to be desperately washed. There is about 3 lbs of hair on the floor of my master bathroom from my husband cutting his hair, his beard,and our boys’ hair. I think it’s been there for 5 days or something. I’ve created a natural tint to my storm door with the dog’s slobber and the kids hand prints. The area rug in our living room had to be pulled up because the dog vomited 10 times over the weekend with much of it landing on my rug. My furniture just looks like it’s kind of floating in my living room. Let’s not talk about the state of my dishes and the rest of the house. But right now? I’m looking at my pink flowers and all is well with my soul. I’m also listening to music and sipping coffee. Go ahead and add that to the top of my list with the filthy house happenings.
Fresh flowers are expensive. The only reason I’m currently looking at live hot pink roses is because yesterday was Valentine’s Day and my husband loves me. Usually I’m looking at my dollar store flowers WHICH I LOVE.
How many of you knew that your local dollar store has fake flowers for $1 a bunch? Let me show you what I do around the house with these cheap flowers thrown into mason jars that bring me such happiness:
$2 Dollar Store flowers in a mason jar.
$3 worth of Pink fake roses from the Dollar Store on my Dining Room table in a Mason.
I bought this pretty pale pink flower at Target. Not $1 but not much more.
Flowers purchased by my Valentine on my desk
Notice a trend? Pink flowers make me happy. And it doesn’t have to cost much to make your house pretty, either.
