Happy Friday + Randomness

Happy Friday! I picked up these fetching ranunculus blooms at Trader Joe’s yesterday, and it really is about the small things that brighten our days, isn’t it? Pink flowers in general uplift me, but these delicately layered petals are mood-boosters on steroids. It was fun to play around with my camera and photo editing…I haven’t been doing much of that.

Instead, I’ve been spring cleaning like a fiend now that I’ve completed a couple of deadlines — the dining room table’s been looking like a crime scene. And that’s currently the least offensive part of the house. My next big book deadline is at the end of May, so I’m taking advantage of these few glorious carefree hours this week to restore order to my workspace and home before I trash it all again. It’s the never ending and oddly comfortable and predictable cycle.

Gah, these flowers are so gorgeous. If reincarnation is actually a thing, I’d like to come back as blush-pink ranunculus. I wonder how it feels to be that beautiful? And who knew that $4.99 could bring so much joy? Anyway, I hope these photos brighten your day too! I’ll be back next week with more substantial content (maybe. maybe not. now that I think about it, I’m not sure that I’ve ever created substantial content).

Have a refreshing and lovely weekend, all!

What brightens your day?
It really doesn’t take much
Wouldn’t you agree?

    1. News from children is definitely a day brightened! That reminds me — must get you that Nani Iro info – soon, soon!

  1. I do agree! Absolutely!
    We have a yellow magnolia tree coming into bloom that we planted three years ago. Yellow blossoms the size of lunch plates. So exciting.
    With regard to your content, I vote for substantial:)

    1. Wow, those are some gigantic magnolias, Annelieke! We have white and pink ones blooming all over Seattle!

  2. These are so pretty. Ranunculus is one of my very favorite flowers, but I’ve never seen one in person! Isn’t that sad? We never get them in grocery store bouquets up here in the frozen tundra that is northern Minnesota. Your photos are just lovely.

    1. Oh! I remember a friend saying that when she lived in North Carolina there were no flowers at the grocery store either…I forget how different offerings can be in different regions. You have dog sledding though, right? Now that’s cool!

  3. Please don’t worry about “substantial content!” Just sharing something as beautiful as these flowers is quite substantial and far better than the rest of the computer screens I have looked at today!!!

  4. Those are beautiful flowers! Thanks for sharing. Also I just got my custom illustration and I love it. I wasn’t expecting it so it was even more of a treat. I think I know where it’s going in my family room, now to get it placed! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Yvonne! I haven’t done a lot of rubberstamping, though I have carved my own stamp or two in the past! Thanks so much for purchasing my book, I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
