Bling and flowers

I decided to treat myself on Valentine's Day (and I'm just now getting around to showing you) to flowers and bling MY way. :)

First of all, I saw these ranunculus at Bauman's Farm, didn't buy one, and had a dream about them. Next time I went I thought if they were going to haunt me in my sleep I'd better pick one up! The sparkly and silver "M" was found at Goodwill for $.99. It's a wedding cake topper I think but considering how my name is Molly and all I just couldn't resist buying this as a plant decoration.

 I just love the fluff and color on this one! And it had about 4 more buds on it, waiting to open.

This thing is super tarnished and as soon as I remember what I did with my polish I'll see about fixing that. But it does give it a bit of shabby charm.

Seriously, how could I resist this blingy M?

All potted in an empty pot I had sitting around...
Okay I'll admit the M makes me laugh, but I still like it. :)

It sits in my bedroom windowsill and adds a fantastic pop of color to all my neutral white tones.

What? You were expecting roses and diamonds? ;)

I think the M looks pretty with your flower! Thanks for your comment. I didn't enter the giveaway because I don't even have pierced ears! Silly me.

Oooooo that M's so pretty!I've always wanted my initials on my bedroom wall, but because my name starts with an O, it just looks like a zero! :s Lovely post though :D x

That flower is gorgeous. I'm so ready for pretty spring flowers.

What a nice gift to yourself. I love the way you decorated your M. ;)

I was in the Oregon City Goodwill this morning and I thought of you as I was peeking around at all of the frames and fun knick knacks. :)
