One subject that’s always been easy for me to write about since we started our blog a year and half ago is flowers. I love that no matter what kind I buy, they are each beautiful in their own way. Any time I take a picture of a flower, it doesn’t seem to matter what my photography skills are, the photos turn out awesome because I have great subject matter to work with. I love how the comparison of flowers can be made to us as humans. Each of us have been created uniquely different, yet there is beauty in each of us.
Something I have always enjoyed about flowers is how different flowers can be used to style our home in different ways. And I’ve found recently that I may have developed a new hobby for collecting vases. I am normally not a fan of collecting objects around our tiny home that will just add clutter, but for some reason I can justify acquiring different vases since (like flowers) they are each unique. And I feel that each type of flower might fit with a different style of vase. I have really enjoyed mixing and matching different vases, but I have noticed that I have developed a specific love for white vases. I promise I don’t aim to just go for white, but I love the clean feel of them and that of course white will go with any color of flower I place in them. I am really enjoying how a few of my recent favorite vase purchases look together. What do you think? (Flowers pictured: peonies – I can’t get enough of them right now, billy balls, and was unable to get the name of the green bush plants – does anyone have a guess?)
