+ BIRTHDAY PAINTING
I received the most thoughtful birthday gift from my friend Sarah - a beautiful painting of our street corner. I love it so, so much. I'm so thankful to have such a considerate friend and I absolutely adore the painting. My next goal is convince Sarah to start taking commissions.
This week my worst nightmare came to life, a zombie cat. This gorgeous creature reappeared five days after being hit by a car, declared dead, and buried; confirming that cats are devil animals. Cue all the nine lives jokes.
Sorry for the picture above, hope you weren't eating...
+ SWEET POTATO SPIRALS
Speaking of food - I spiralized sweet potatoes last night after seeing them on Katie's blog yesterday. They were delicious! I love this little kitchen tool so much. If you haven't ordered one yet, do it already.
+ FLORAL WORK
We worked with white flowers and greens in my floral class this last week. During the class we arranged a pew marker, a posy, a corsage, and a church urn arragement. We were working with hydrangeas and roses - one of my favorite combos.
I also hope you enjoy how I have to transport my arrangements home. Safety first.
+ CHASE AFTER A CURE GALA
Tickets are still available if anyone in Charleston is interested in attending.
And I'm adding a quick Friday 6 .....
I got a little worked up last night after seeing some ridiculous articles being shared on my Facebook wall regarding vaccines. Sometimes I don't know whether it's better to respond to these posts or just keep quiet. It's unlikely I'll ever convince the original poster to change his/her mind, but responding increases the likelihood that a passing reader may learn something they wouldn't have otherwise.
In last night's particular case, I didn't respond. I did end up sharing this article from Vox about measles. Please read it if you'd like to learn more about the virus and why it's suddenly making a comeback.
