I know it is an age-old adage, but there is nothing that makes one feel better than beautiful spring flowers. My intention was to go grocery shopping today, but somehow I ended up at the local farmer's market (there is nothing I currently miss more at home, besides my cat, than the Sunday Farmer's market), where my bad day turned into a beautiful one after purchasing a bouquet of snapdragons, wild thistles, hollyhock, daisies, and bluebells (how could I not be happy? those are all my very favorite flowers). 


I also did a tiny bit of thrift store shopping... where I purchased a lovely collared dress and the prettiest short pink skirt. (summer is approaching, after all, which always calls for a minor wardrobe update...)


I bought apricots, white peaches, cherries, and strawberries (and apricot, cherry, and raspberry thumbprint cookies!)

And then, I came across the absolute best part of the market. I haven't explored this one much, so I had no idea that there's a woman who regularly sells old brooches there! I came away with an adorable one of two bunnies kissing, and a lovely golden unicorn. The beautiful ballerina necklace also came in the mail today, from a pen-pal, Samantha. 

Things are beginning to look up. Simple pleasures seem to have that effect on me. x


  1. That is truly the most beautiful bouquet of flowers I've ever seen! The pink skirt reminds me very much of a petticoat I wear as a re-enactor, as it's the same color and the waistband is very similar. I envy you the bunny pin! xx

  2. I wish I could buy flowers as simply as you could. x

  3. I am in love with your thrifted dress! Oh my, and now I wish to collect brooches after seeing yours!
