WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS...

... Use them! Anna Spiro of Absolutely Beautiful Things can do no wrong. Yesterday as I perused her blog, I noticed a common theme that deferred slightly from her usual large bouquets of big, beautiful flowers. Bright, happy, summery lemons.  They're not only fresh and delicious in the kitchen...


the perfect punch for the space above, and a lovely subtle elegance below when the leaves are kept on!





An added bonus, they last for much longer than flowers and won't affect your allergies. I think i'm going to get out a lovely little tray today and do some arranging myself!

They look gorgeous - I love limes too. They work better in cocktails ;)

This is a much more affordable centerpiece as well, especially if you don't have a beautiful garden like she does!

love it. so glad I came across your blog. I'm following, I hope you will as well. I started my blog a little over 3 months ago after graduating from college in the south and moving across the country to LA. The site's all about celebrity fashion from the point of view of an LA stylist. I'd love if if you'd stop by to see multiple post a day on all the latest celebrity fashion news. Any support would be awesome. Thanks love. xoxo
