I Must Have Flowers - 2nd Annual Share


Happy Monday Sweet Friends! Last year I shared a post called I Must Have Flowers in which I showed some floral beauty from around the web. That post was a favorite of many at the time so I thought we could do that again.   Our thoughts are turning to flowers of all kinds at this time, right?





I love to get a few new clothes when the seasons change so let's start with that category. This floral jumpsuit from Loft is so cute! I love the look of it but simply must ask...have any of you found the world's greatest strapless bra? The struggle continues every single summer! Don't even bother telling me that you don't wear sleeveless tops ladies. Texas summers are hot so sleeveless is a must.


A few weeks ago I shared a dining room update and that included some new art pieces we ordered from the artist, Laurel Browning.  I found her through Instagram and fell hard for her work! I would love to add one more larger piece to our collection. The paintings were actually ordered through a shop called Sweet Pineapple.



Thanks to Lady Bird Johnson, Texas is known for its wildflowers. We love them! My husband  recently put out two pounds of wildflower seeds that we ordered from Wildseed Farm in Fredricksburg, TX. They are all at the back of our 1 1/2 acre lot and will bloom in an area that we are leaving pretty natural. Can't wait to see what all comes up!




Dear Flip Flops, I love you! I found all of these cuties on the Zappos website. Where is your favorite place to find summer shoes? I usually get them at Target or Dillards. They both have a nice selection.



And because the kitchen is my favorite room of the house, let's find some cute things to add to that room.  You can click on the numbers beneath this collage to be taken to these kitchen items. My favorite thing to add to my kitchen when seasons change is a new cup towel. They are cheap and fun!

Now let's end this post with a few new pillows to poof! Here's a shout out for a very talented blogger, The DIY Mommy, Christina Dennis, who has created her own line of pillows. They are all so pretty and the #1 pillow in the collage is part of her collection. I ordered this flowery beauty for my office chair.

Have you spotted any beautiful flowery creations lately? I'd love to know! :)

I just love that artwork! When we get around to decorating the dining room, I might see if I can commission my daughter to create something gorgeous! Havea great week!

Good morning Stacey. Thanks for the eye candy! I needed that! It's cold and wet here. I need Spring NOW! Enjoy your week.

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

I love flowers too in all forms. I hope your wildflowers bloom abundantly for you! We will be scattering ours at the end of this month.

My thrift store addiction said...

Stacey, I love this post and it just confirms that we are kindred spirits. I have been working on several projects--all with floral decor. As I worked on photographs, for a brief moment I wondered if I'm sharing too many flowers but quickly dismissed the thought ;)

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

So many goodies in this post! I can't wait to see your wildflowers bloom! You're making me want to get some new spring cup towels too. Pretty, pretty!

Jeanie said...

Two pounds of wildflower seeds is a lot of seeds! Oh, be sure to take photos of that -- it will be absolutely stunning!

Ricki Treleaven said...

I love all things floral, and you've certainly shared an abundance of beautiful floral things here on this post! And you provided the links which will probably get me in lots of trouble!

Kim said...

Oh flowers are just what I need right now. It's so, so cold here today and we are expecting between 3 and 6 inches of snow on Wednesday. I need a floral vision to block all that snow out!

Bonnie said...

Can't wait to see your wildflowers growing and cut in vases!
Pretty post today! Love Monet's quote and I feel the same way!
I love your art work you fell for. My daughter has been doing a similar look with tulips. I can't wait to see what she might give me.
Itching for spring but we are having a few nights in the 30's this week.
Have a great week.

Pam Richardson said...

Stacey, that wildflower area will be spectacular. Please share with us when they bloom. I love flowers on fabric, dishes, clothing, etc! You have chosen some really pretty things! It is dark and raining here this morning! Happy Tuesday~

Rita C. said...

Yes, I love flowers! I can't wait to see your wildflower field! As for the fashion - cute jumpsuit, yes (VS strapless is my go-to); Dollar Tree for run-of-the-mill garden flip flops & Jack Rogers for classic, a little dressier. I love that sanctuary creamer/sugar from Pier 1 but it looks oh, so fragile! I'd be so sad if it broke, and so I've steered away from that set, I just have too much stuff that gets crammed when storing....
Any and all of the pillows, I use them in every seat I sit.
Happy post!

Floral has my heart right now, with another blanket of snow on the ground this morning, I guess it’s wishful thinking. Ahhh what a fabulous jumpsuit and phenomenal artwork. I also am ready to dig in the dirt, about another 2 month’s and I can pick out my posies, can’t wait! Hope you’re having a great week!

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Did you say floral? Well yes Ma'am I am all over that and have been my entire life! I bet you have been too. Fun selections here today:)

I am craving flowers, so your post was so fun on this cold cold morning here in the north. Too many fun florals, just the dose I needed!

Sandy said...

I can see why it is a popular post. Anything with flowers SPEAKS to me. I can not wait to see what pops in your wildflower area. That will be so much to watch. I had some tulips that I put out. They didn't bloom last year, but I think it got cold enough this year. They have broken ground and it is like the the watched pot never boils. I go out multiple times a day to see their progress:)
I found a very cute sleeveless top at the Loft this year. I don't care how baggie the arms get, it is way too hot not to wear something cool. My mother tells me I will get to where I am cold as I age. IT hasn't happened yet.

Cute stuff Stacey! Yes, I must have flowers!! My favorite thing to paint too!

Junkchiccottage said...

Good Morning Stacey. Love all the pretty flower items. Those bird sugar and creamer are too adorable. I am a flip flop girl when our weather is good here. I live in them so the flip flops are really cute. I might have to take a little trip over to Zappo's to see what they have. The wildflowers sound so fun. I hope you get a good result from them. I have an area in the back of the house that needs something like this. Hmmm now you have me thinking about maybe some wildflower seeds back there. Happy New Week.

Cindy Richter said...

Yep, I love me some flowers too. Especially flip flops! "I have to get my feet scraped". LOL. Do you remember that movie Seems Like Old Times with Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase? Even though it's decades old, my mom and I roll our r's and say that for each pedicure we get. :)

Marlene Stephenson said...

I have bought me a beautiful flowery mat for my front door, so i am looking and can't wait for the next flower,{towel,pot holder or throw pillow} i find.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Beautiful examples...flowers just makes everything special!!!

justplainjilly said...

You're motivating me to plant some flowers, Stacey! First, I might need to rake those leaves and mow down my weeds, though!

Fantastic eye candy - this is the post for me. I love fresh flowers and floral designs.

It's so nice to change the hand towels...tea towels and pillows out for Spring! I love those flip flops too! We have flowers blooming like crazy here in Florida now! Hugs!

Eilis said...

I just bought a flowered duvet cover and a flowered dress. They both make me SO happy. Lovely post!

Art and Sand said...

I want one one everything you shared - even the jumpsuit.

Hi Stacey :)

I was already starting to itch for spring, but you've made me yearn for it. The magical bra... not in my lifetime lol

Stacey, I love this post with all the gorgeous flowers! Spring seems so far off here in Michigan. I just bought a new strapless bra for our trip and fingers crossed, it seemed pretty comfortable. P.S., love those paintings you bought!

I just adore flowers. I love all the examples you have shown. Those dishes are darling. The paintings are amazing.
Thanks for sharing at Keep In Touch.
