fabulous florals

On this gray, dreary and rainy day (I sound like Eeyore!) there is truly nothing that I would rather think about than flowers. Whether they are real and in a stunning arrangement..

the detailing on a dainty teacup...

gracing the fabrics of a marvelously decorated living room...

or the pattern on a fabulous pencil skirt...

(all photos via polly wreford)
..no matter what form they come in they all lift my spirits. What lifts your spirits on the dreariest of days?

love all of these photos! i tend to wear bright colors on dreary days b/c it makes me happier (and people comment on 'being a ray of sunshine') oh and there's nothing wrong w/Eeyore, he was my favorite!!!

Music and a cup of hot chocolate while curled up on my couch, with a favourite magazine always helps me on those cold, dreary days.
