Flowers From a Friend

I met with one of my best friends over the weekend to hang out and catch up. We like to do coffee dates every so often to talk about what's going on in our lives and what we have planned for the future. Lots of exciting things happening for my friend and for me, so it's always fun to catch up.


Even with exciting things happening, life is composed of the good and the bad. My sweet friend wanted to help cheer me up since the passing of Roosty last week, so she came bearing a huge bouquet of mums in the cheeriest yellow color I have ever seen.

I've always loved cutting and arranging flowers and find it to be very therapeutic, but something about arranging these lovely flowers was extra special.

You know there's gotta be a cat in the mix somewhere.

I thought this was just the kindest and sweetest gesture and it meant so much to me. She is always inspiring me to be a better friend and an even better person. And the yellow color did definitely cheer me up. The cats seemed to like it as well - the flowers were on the table for a whole 15 minutes before they had to be moved to a safer location!


Now they are placed in different rooms throughout the house so I can get a burst of sunshine wherever I go and think of my dear friend and her thoughtfulness. The world is made so much better with good friends!

  2. Hi Tammy, That was very thoughtful of your friend. I smiled when I saw your collection of milk glass vases. My late mom loved milk glass and every thrift store/garage sale we visited, she would purchase one! Your collection is beautiful and the yellow really shows up well!

  10. Oh, I am so sorry. I just went back and read about Roosty. I would have been a mess. How long did you have him? I could never do what you do...I get way too attached to every living thing. I think it's nice that you were able to meet with your friend for some Company & Comfort, as I like to call it. The flowers looks so pretty...so spring like.

    Take care.

    XO,
    Jane

  29. That was very sweet of her to give such a cheerful arrangement. How funny about the cat and the flowers. It made me thing of my cat many years ago. She munched through the stem of an entire french tulip bouquet. All that was left of the arrangement was a vase full of stems and the table was littered with the flowers. Then she sat there looking at me like "What?" Ha.

  33. Oh, I can't wait for sunny yellow spring flowers! I love your milk glass vases.. they look so cute together, but I bet it's just as wonderful seeing a burst of cheer scattered about your home, as well. I got together for warm visits with friends on two occasions this past week... good for the soul!!

  35. Hello from an old-time homesteader in West Virginia! I love knowing that younger folks are doing what I did 40 years ago. And I love the yellow flowers in white vases. How pretty. No flowers or spring here yet, but maybe next week.

  36. Pretty good idea for separate them to a smaller vases instead only one room to enjoy:). Spring is here! You are welcome to drop by my blog as well. ox
