Have you....?

So have you stopped and smelled the roses lately? I bet the answer is no since they are not blooming yet. Well, I did... We made our bi-weekly trip to Sam's club and these lovely beauties are what the hubs slid into the cart. Just because....Well, kind of. We were relaxing and talking one night and I started to rub his feet and he was in heaven... He then told me he was going to buy me something...."A chainsaw?" was my response which made him laugh and from then on we were reciting one of our most favorite movies... Multiplicity... If you have not seen it go rent it. It is sooooooooooo funny!!!
On a more serious note...Look at those colors. Green, yellow, orange, and red. Just looking at them makes you feel all warm inside and happy. I decided to use them for another center piece on our table.

I like them there but something was missing.... But what?

Ah, much better. I found some black grosgrain ribbon and sewed a thinner black/white check grosgrain ribbon on top and made a bow.

You likey? I do. Hope you all have a wonderful week. See what you can do to get your hubby to buy you something unexpected this week....Like a chainsaw... LOL :O)
