Friday Flower - Beautiful Arrangement from Husband

I had such a sweet surprise from my husband this amazing flower arrangement from my favorite florist, From Roehm With Love.  The store is like an enchanted forest.  Joseph, the owner really has an amazing talent.  Should you live in the S. Florida area this really is the only florist to use.  The compliments are always flowing when you get an arrangement From Rhoem With Love.

Friday Flower

I love Hydrangeas.  They make for such a wonderful flower in a vase.  And to have just hydrangeas in the vase to me is so beautifully simple.

Sorry for the delay and I have a purse addiction

Wow, it has been a long time since my last post.  I have been thinking about this blog a lot and how I really did enjoy posting to it.  I know I have said this before, but I am really impressed with the blogs that I do follow and how on top of their posts they are.  I guess that it why they have so many followers.  You need to keep the audience wanting more.  And by posting everyday or several times a week you get them coming back.  Something I am going to work towards.

What started this blog was reading another blog......Diary of a Domestic Failure .  In one of her posts she talked about a handbag that she had been loving for years.  I too had loved the bag.  It was the Gucci Horsebit Hobo.   As much as I loved this bag I knew I would never have it.  I can not justify spending that kind of money on a bag.  Although I would not be against receving the bag as a gift.  Well in her post she found a great alternative to this bag:

The Equestrian

Meet the Equestrian by Cape Cod Leather.  The bag has been seen on several celebrities.  So of course that even ups the desire for me.  I admit that when I see something trendy in a magazine I am all about trying to see if it is affordable.  Well in my opinion I think this bag is a good value.  The bag is $195 online plus shipping.  Compared to what the Gucci one was going for this is a bargain!  I know some people would think that I am crazy to spend that kind of money on a hand bag.  But if it is something that makes me smile why is it such a bad thing.  Plus, I love all my handbags and they know it.  I rotate them out every few weeks.  And I have them for years.  So the investment is really for the long haul.

 So my problem...aka addition...I don't need a new handbag.  I mean I just got a very lovely hand bag several months ago, you may recall Pippa from a previous post.  She is great and I have really been enjoying using her. 
I have a Birthday coming up, so I am going to try and control my urge for now and maybe add this to my birthday list.
