Easy Floral crowns.

This is a long over due post.  When I hosted my best friend, Jess's garden bridal shower, I had a few people asked me about a flower crown tutorial.  I know it is like six months late but here it is.

I think most of you are aware of my obsession with flowers.  I usually have an abundant amount of them in the house.  I am also so lucky to have a man who feeds my addiction.  This morning B sent me all these flowers and I have been on cloud 9 ever since.  As I was putting them around  the house, I thought this would be the perfect day to make some flower crowns.

Of course you will need your choice of flowers.  I find that flowers with smaller buds are easier to work with.

You will need a scissor, a floral wire and floral tape.

Twist two wires together to create a circle.  Put it on your head to make sure it fits.  I like to put floral tape around the parts where the ends are sticking out.

Now all you have to do is cut the flowers and tape them around the wire with the floral tape.  You can either go all the way around the circle or just do it half way like I did here. 

Quick and easy.

Do you realize how much bribing I had to do to take this one picture?

Lily, on the other hand, is always ready with a pose.



Falling in love with spring

Don't you just love spring?  I don't want to jinx myself but I think it is here to stay?  I can't wait to get my gardening on.  So far nothing is coming back yet.  In the mean time, I like to buy myself flowers and put them in random places.  There is nothing like being surrounded by flowers.

Bucket of flowers by the bed is the best way to wake up.

I love the mix of rustic and glam, don't you?

I can't seem to stop buying books.

Here is a little corner in the living room.  Cottage iron daybed with a bucket of roses just sound so dreamy.

Somebody asked me why I don't use vases to put my flowers in.  My answer was have you seen my kids and dogs?  These plastic floral buckets are just so wonderful.  I think I am going to paint them in different shabby colors. 

I don't take bath but if I do, this is not a bad sight.  The girls and the pups, however, enjoy their bubble baths.

I am still so in love with the details from this gilded cabinet.  It is the perfect space for all our towels and my facial masks...lots and lots of them.  That should be a post all on its own.

Here is Aurora on her bike.  I just can't wait to be able to enjoy nature with them again.  This summer is a bit busy for us.  My parents are coming back next month and staying for three months.  Then the girls and I are going to Burma and Singapore for three weeks in August.  I am so excited and nervous at the same time.  They have never been and I haven't been back in eight years.  I plan to sleep, eat, spa and shop.  Yup.  It will be glorious.  I am planning to go to California in June and July.  I would love to know of cool flea markets or vintage shops around the OC area.  B is loving California.  He came back for the weekend last week and it was so wonderful to see him.  The girls and I miss him very much.

How adorable are those two?  This is kind of our every morning routine.  She likes to go through my closet for accessories.  She looks very Annie Hall-ish.  Bella doesn't like to have her pictures taken anymore.  She said she likes to supervise.  Oh children.
