Flora Abundance

Are you one of those people who always have your holiday shopping done in July, scooping up all the good buys? Just the opposite, I love to wait until the season, or shall I say the last day.  All that procrastinating comes full circle and the thrill of rushing through the stores gives me little time to think about anything other than the festive season.

On that same seam of thought, think about all the flora abundance that awaits us in the summer months. Colorful, splashy, ornate – everything screams of bright, bold and beautiful flora.

So why not make this Friday creative Friday and add some flora abundance to your day. If you're not a shopper, snap a quick pic of your favorite flower in bloom to adorn your winter walls.

Have a room to redecorate? Is it an easy room that even an amateur could wallpaper? Rather than use the primary earth tones and paint, scour the catalogs for some snazzy, decorative flora wallpaper. Or do one wall, no curves or bends and paint the rest a complimentary color. Jazz up an old pillow or chair and reupholster with some flash flower print. Make a statement – bring back that Victorian era even in a slightly contemporary home.

Go ahead. Make this Friday a creative Friday. There’s nothing like planning ahead for those dark, winter days. Make that hibernating season shine with flora abundance. And to take that thought one step further, we’ll wrap up Friday’s blog with an Epicurus quote. Good day for some Greek philosophy. “Not what we have But what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.” Happy Friday - Annie
