First day of spring!

Today is the first official day of spring! Aren't you excited for warm days and spring flowers? Speaking of, I adore these dried flowers from etsy shop Flores del Sol. They are just as beautiful as fresh flowers, but last way longer. I'd love to put them all around our living room.

These are gorgeous! I haven't seen dried flowers with so many colors before! The April showers have definitely arrived here in LA, so I'm hoping the pretty flowers will arrive next week! :)

I have severe anxiety, and i'd just like to say that for some odd reason your blog is a very peaceful influence! x

Dancing Branflake said...

I couldn't even tell they were dried! So pretty and the fact that they last longer than fresh flowers (my daffodils are wilting as we speak) makes it a win win to me.

Misty said...

Beautiful arrangements and I normally HATE dried flower arrangements. Thanks for sharing and Happy Spring in spite of the snowfall!

LifeCreatively said...

Absolutely gorgeous. What a wonderful idea on how to add some fresh color to your house. Happy Spring!

Zoƫ said...

Ohh, what are the names of those yellow ball-flowers? Googling "yellow ball-flowers" didn't help. :)

Holly said...

Thank you for the reminder that, despite all available evidence outside my window, spring is indeed here! These dried flowers are lovely and bring back happy memories of my wedding last summer--we used both billy balls and thistle in our arrangements. What a lovely floral pick-me-up, thank you!

Jackie said...

Gorgeous! Could use some around here... we're stuck in rainy, foggy damp!

I really like the dried flowers. When I was younger I used to keep flowers, and dry them out as decoration for my room.
