Roses on Things

In reality, I am not one to buy flowers.
Hiro knows better than to spend money on blooms for my selection of empty vases.
I would sooner fill them with jelly beans or buttons!
But,
For some reason I seem to have bought some roses for my buttons:

Found in the sale box at Liberty's

I also bought some rosey socks: Tabio

I do like the look of ankle socks with my faux brogues. They look more "proper" somehow:
Are you a "flower person"?

  1. I definitely love flowers. I love floral scents and I do enjoy nice flowers on clothes or accessories. Agree with the fresh flowers thing though, I definitely prefer something that won't wilt over time.

  7. cute buttons! i like floral perfumes more than i used to, and I'm sure I have a few tops with flowers on them, but i generally stick to solid colors or quirky t-shirts. I'm not really a fan of cut flowers though - I'd prefer potted flowers any day!

  8. My flowers only appear on my clothes.

    I was raised with a flower-addicted mum and the Netherlands is notorious for its flowers (yes, not only the weeds, LOL) and most women do like to buy flowers every now and then, so I do not know why I hardly buy any for myself. Perhaps because they wither so fast.

  18. You have got great tastes in fashion. Your rose buttons and socks are 'less is more'...

    As for me, I love growing and picking 'cut-and-come-again' flowers from my garden.

    And I am particularly drawn to one rare flower..

    ..If bloggers were flowers and blooms,
    I'd pick and worship 'House of blues'...

  19. Thank you all for your floral comments. Perhaps it is the joys of spring that makes me reach out for flowery prints?

    Speckled Hen - Now that's brilliant. You grow them, then enjoy them!

    Olive - IN YOUR CAR?? That is really cute.

  20. I love flowers when it comes to things, but flowers themselves...not so much! I'm allergic to MOST flowers so it's pointless for me to have them around. I must say that lilies & orchids are my FAVORITES, but I am MOST allergic to them. Poo!!
