Purple Haze

Still snowed in. Well ,not really, went to the grocery store for yet more food. We've been cooking and eating so much, I'm too full to take any photos or write about the meals.

I want to go to work! Tomorrow I am promised. Usually during Valentine's week I would be begging to go home. I would be too tired to cook or blog or even read a blog.

Since I can't stick a flower in a vase ,let me show a few images from other florists who can and do it beautifully.

These designers are keeping me going. Making me dream. Showing me the light at the end of the snow tunnel. The first is from Bornay, a dreamy fantastical designer from Barcelona. She inspires sighs. The second is by Small Stump And Studio Choo. They have their own charming blog with many pics of their dogs ( bonus points for this). But this photo came via Design Sponge. The third is by Little Pheasant, a wedding designer in Brooklyn. I am an avid reader of her blog, and an fervent admirer of her work.

I used to be a magazine addict. Then they stopped publishing many of my favorites and I was at a loss for inspiration. Until one day I read one blog and one blog lead to another and another. Now here I am, this is my 105 post and I'm still reading and marveling.


  1. hello - i know just what you mean! this world of amazing creative people opened up to me only recently and now i am totally hooked.
    i really enjoy your blog, thanks!

  2. so happy to hear you'll make it

    you room is ready
    come as you are


  3. Were you as sad as I was when they stopped publishing Domino?

    I love purple/black flowers. They are so dramatic and unusual.

  4. Gosh they are all beautiful, hmmm, I wonder if I shall receive anything like that this weekend, tee~hee! Mr.Lane is not renowned for his floral tokens! But I am always prepared to be amazed!

    Hope the snow lets you out soon!

  7. I am totally addicted too! It's 11:30am here and I haven't done anything this morning except trip around all the endless inspiring blogs out there! I seem to spend more time looking at other blogs instead of updating my own :) xo Louise P.S. Hope you had a Happy V day!
