So Shabby Pink - 15th Wedding Anniversary

Oh! Roses for me?? How sweet! You see, Thursday was our 15th wedding anniversary and after running errands that morning, I came home to roses on the kitchen table! Bless his heart, my husband couldn't find the vase we use to put flowers in, and since I wasn't home when he got there, he just left them on the table.

Gosh, what pretty roses! Since I am a very practical and rather frugal person, if he were to have used something like a real florist or some home delivery flower service, I would have appreciated them, but would have cringed at the price. They are just flowers! After spending half a fortune for a dozen roses years ago, he was probably pretty happy when he learned I felt this way!
Since we have a grocery chain here that sells flowers for a fraction of the cost, I think that is a wiser choice. If you have a Costco in your area, they also have a gorgeous flower selection.

Anyway, I gleefully took them out of the paper and put them in a vase. My arrangement is a little crooked and not perfectly balanced but I think they are beautiful!

This is day 2 of the 7 day guarantee.

I am keeping them on my desk since I spend a lot of time there.

I am not sure which was better, the roses or the contents of the cardboard box laying beside the roses -- a rear window wiper arm for my SUV that needed to be replaced.

You see, the morning I was leaving to go to Dallas for the Home and Gift Show, I was SO anxious to get out of the house and on the road, that I left the hatch up on my Explorer while trying to get out of the garage!! Oh, no.....the wiper arm was dangling from the back window! I can still remember the sound of that thing breaking! NOW what am I going to do? Packing tape! I mega-taped that thing with clear packing tape and off I went!

So, roses ~vs~ window wiper arm....this year was a toss up. Thank you, honey for both!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today! Have a good weekend!
