So much prettier than skulls and spiders, don't you think? :)
You know, I can count on one hand the number of times I've bought flowers for myself. I've always preferred to spend my pin money on fabric ... and possibly the occasional drive-thru.
And I've always been ... hmmm ... not so good at flower arranging. I've been hoping all these years that I'd magically somehow be good at it, but that is not turning out to be the case.
I also had this idea recently that if I just drove past the drive-thru once or twice a week instead of ... you know, t.h.r.u. it ..., I could redirect those funds into flowers. This is my first little bunch. And I've already learned that these white ones - I think they're called ... oh shoot, now I can't remember ... I thought they were Queen Anne's Lace, but that's not it. If you know what they are, please tell me!
At any rate, although they look really beautiful in the shop, they are super hard to arrange with - especially for this novice. So this isn't my favourite look, but the carnations are a lovely orangy-pink. I thought they'd be nice for Halloween.
And for you. :)
Trick or Treat!

I found it! (Gotta love Google, don't ya?) That flower is called Green Mist and is from the Laceflower family, as is Queen Anne's Lace, which is why some of us were fooled. Read a little more about it here if you're interested.
