Fresh & Clean

During a trip to the grocery store, I knew I had to stop by the flower department. The flowers I bought 3 weeks ago...

Yes, 3 WEEKS.

...those flowers were finally on their last end so I was in desperate need of fresh flowers to make my house feel fresh and clean.

And yes, flowers do that. If you don't understand why, that's okay. My husband doesn't either but it does.

Anywho, as I was searching for the next bunch that would fill my house for the next few weeks (hopefully), I saw them. 


I'm more of a rose, hydrangea or lily type of gal but I've been straying. I have seen pictures of tulips in other people's houses and they look gorgeous. I thought I would give it a try.

It looked nice buuutt I wasn't in love with it. However, I left it like that for two days in hope it would grow on me.

It didn't.

The tulips got all droopy and I don't know what that's about because I wasn't digging it. 

So, I took the leaves off and trimmed them shorter. I thought a mason jar works with everything.

It didn't.

Maybe, a vase with a thinner neck so they don't droop.

Btw, my house looks clean in this angle but if I'm honest, this is what the other side looks like

Yeeeaaah, a tornado of a coat closet renovation that went wrong is in our midst. Just keeping it real.

Back to the thin neck vase, I still wasn't filling it. 

As I was looking around my house at all the vases I had on hand, I saw her. The crystal vase my grandmother gave me. I would simply place the thin neck vase inside of the crystal vase and see what happens.

It was like magic.


I thought I would have to give up on the tulips all together but now I know. 

Also, I am finally completely in love with my entry way vignette. 

Do you use fresh flowers in your home? Do you have flower arrangement problems like me when trying to place them somewhere?
