I was so inspired by one of John's holiday gifts to Sherry over at This Young House (a vase with the promise to fill it 12 times a year) that I committed to buying myself fresh flowers on a weekly basis.
I did it the first week (and they actually lasted two weeks!). But then I started worrying that I was bringing unnecessary pesticides into our house. I don't mean to be a spoil-sport; I just worry about the proliferation of chemicals in our lives. Two of my family members have battled cancer, and it scares me.
Plus, since my car was stolen, I've needed to save even more money to buy another one.
Ugh, what a depressing post so far!
Anyway, I decided to go outside, snip a few pieces off a plant that needed to be trimmed anyway, and stuck them in a vase. Voila! Instant centerpiece. It could totally work at a wedding.
