Awwww lovely - Fifi Flowers is great.

I agree with what you said in the article, I always have flowers and books around, even when I'm short on cash. When I'm really cash-strapped I bring plants in from my balcony in place of flowers.

Hi Valorie!

You nailed it in your article about joie de vivre! I have fresh flowers in my house, cheap roses from Wal Mart when I go grocery shopping, but scattered all over brings joy and freshness to my space. LIFE!

My husband and I noted we share the same small white table as you in your bottom photo!
