I bought myself these gerbera daisies last week. It’s ridiculous, but I felt guilty spending the $3.30 on them at first. But when I got home, I split the bunch among three vases (ok, two vases and an empty wine bottle, but work with me here), and put them throughout the apartment. Little things make me happy.
They didn’t last terribly long, and they were a little beat up, but I loved their deep red color, so I brought them home anyway. The vases I used are from Ikea, and I bought them when I moved into my first Chicago apartment. I don’t think I’ve used them for fresh flowers before. The roommates did use them for dried flowers and for flowers made from elephant poo paper. Yes, you read that correctly. He got them from his boyfriend. So romantic.
