Tulips

You'd think the first place for flowers in the house would be the dining table, or maybe the entry room, but I love flowers in the bathroom.
Especially when they were given to you from a friend who bought them from a kid in support of Amigos de las Americas. (thanks, Cyndi!)
I found this vase designed especially for tulips at Judi Tavill's etsy shop:
I love the way SimplyModern paints the sides of these wooden pendants and signs the back (artfordailylife!):ArguingTheMobius makes these origami tulips in Cork, Ireland. She has an awesome photo of her henna tattoo on her blog.
I have been fascinated with all the Gocco goings-on lately. Here is a tulip print from SarahParrott's etsy shop:

  2. Thanks for looking, Laura.
    I love the quote on your latest blog post:
    “As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” - Henry David Thoreau

    And I keep trying to find an explanation of your name...arguing the mobius...surely there is a story there?

  8. What a lovely post, so many unique items and just perfect for this time of year, when we can appreciate the tulips outside for such a short period of time. I love a bouquet of white and dark purple tulips best, so much more dramatic than pastels.

    I'd say the origami tulips were a big hit.
    And, Mrs French, talking about tile is my very favorite subject...sly smile...
