In the mean time (cheater alert, you garden purists should just go away now, lest you be infuriated with me) I took a look around the house and realized I do have plenty of flowers blooming, even in January, on a vintage lampshade... And on a couple of these metal wall plaques
On my cheap IKEA chair (there's one for the husband too, and a matching ottoman)
This art deco sconce has stylized flowers on the backplate...
And on the glass shade
My husband's artwork usually has an exotic bloom or two. Here the flowers are being pollinated by bats.
Our sofa pillows feature flowers of a sort
And this old wooden frame has carved flowers all around the edges
Photographs of magnolia blossoms on the mantle
And another sconce with a floral motif
This pair of vintage floral prints are impossible to photograph well...but I love them. Such lush floppy blooms!
They brighten up a wall in our dining room...
And on the other side of the room, in a built-in cabinet are a couple of Redwing platters, I wish I had the whole set. Or on second thought maybe that would be overwhelming, better to just mix them in with solid colors.
And because I love to wear flowers too, here is my favorite stainless steel bracelet. Made by a local artist from scraps leftover from her day job, making signs.
And every woman needs at least one pair of red shoes, even better when they have a flower on the toe!
Thanks for playing along with me on my fake bloom day. Like I said...next January there will be at least one bloom to show off on Bloomday. I promise. To see some of those lucky gardeners around the world that do have flowers in January visit May Dreams Gardens and scroll down to the long list at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!
