hedonistic pursuits

Call me a hedonist, but there is nothing quite like filling one's home with the heady aroma of fresh cut flowers.  I took a tip from Eddie Ross, and delighted in arranging my very own compositions of all white, tulips, hyacinths, lilies,and greenery and for days have had the pleasure of good scents all around me. 
Are you on a hedonistic pursuit?  What are you filling 
your home with?

My little girl gave me a candle for my birthday from ANTHRO and it smells like I am swimming in flowers.
So lovely!

Beautiful Patricia!

I love flowers, a bowl filled with fruit and candles. My favorite scented candles are Pacifica soy candles. Even their bar of soap fills the bathroom.

Lots and lots of daffodils. I love the sunshine color this time of year. This weekend I will hunt for my very favorite Fressia to tuck here and there for Easter. Your arragements look fab.

White lillies are my FAVE! I can never get enough of their sweet scent. I am really bad about buying flowers for our house. I never want to spend the money. Sometimes my husband will surprise me with a bouquet and then I wonder why we don't always have them around :)

Are flowers hedonistic?? If so, yes I am an unabashed hedonist, for I have a large aqua arts and crafts vase filled to burst with the most deliciously scented white lilies in my sitting room and a fat cup of roses on my secretary. They all smell divine and make me so happy.

I have fallen out of the habit of buying fresh flowers for my desk...I think this is a mistake. Just saw the most gorgeous white hydrangeas while buying groceries, going to go back and get them!

Right now my home is filled with cut flowers and i. love. it. I want it this way all the time. It's so nice to be blow drying your hair or putting on your shoes and to look up and see a pretty little arrangement sitting there. You can't help but smile.

I go thru Vie Luxe candles in Buenos Aires like there's no tomorrow. Traded in my C'ville orchid obsession for these after the move.

ps i luuuuv all white floral arrangements....

N said...

Ooh! I just bought hyacinths. A fave smell...truly spring.

Michelle said...

My husband knew from the beginning...flowers were to be white!!! LOL. I love it when he brings me white lillies. Some people don't like the smell of them, but I find them intoxicating!

From one hedonist to another...have a great long weekend!

I love your white flowers! Ones that smell sweet are my favorite. Right now my jasmine is blooming by the door so it smells heavenly everytime I go in and out the front.

Wishing you the happiest of easter weekends!

I've apparently been filling my home with dust bunnies (in time for Easter!) judging by my floors last week! So my home was filled with vinegar and water and hand towels this weekend. :-) But...I felt great after the spring cleaning. Really!
