{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}~ February 1, 2015

Hello, everyone! Welcome to a new installment of {phfr}!

{Pretty} and {Happy}

This is the time of year I am most tempted to buy flowers.  From the violets and daffodils of April to the poinsettias of December, there is usually something floral going on in the yard, except in the case of the poinsettias, which I buy, of course.  I saved this year's amaryllis for January, but alas, it has bloomed its last.  I was flowerless.  That is, until I saw these little sweeties at Aldi for 99 cents.  At that price, I bought two.  They are heartening, aren't they?

Pink primrose in the plant room . . .

. . . and orangey-red on the kitchen windowsill.

I'm making curtains for the entryway from this lovely, lovely fabric.  I went to Jo-Ann and narrowed the semi-finalists down to about six, and from there I chose three finalists, and this eventually emerged the winner.  It's "Spring Floral" from Legacy Studios.  I'm so happy with it, I bought more for the kitchen window.  The red/orange color matches the (quite intense) wall color.  I'll show you when I'm finished.
