You might remember this post on April 20th where I featured that interesting wire stand with the carnations in the Coke bottles?
I'd gotten those carnations a week before that at a local grocery store. They were 3.99 for a small bundle.
I put some in my bathroom.
And the rest in a burlap-wrapped mason jar in my living room.
It has been nearly 17 days and the flowers are still fresh, smelling strong, and blooming. I am so happy I opted for these carnations. Until the farmer's markets open later this month, getting anything fancier is just too expensive for how long they last.
Thank you mom, for the great advice. Happy mother's day to you! xoxo
And to all the mothers out there. I hope your weekend is as fabulous as you are!!
