Baking, crafting, mama-ing and taking photos of it all. When I remember.

056: flowers


These are flowers from my dad & step-mom for my birthday. So pretty but SO STINKY.

Migraine today which sucked but on the bright side, it means I went home early, felt better and got to cook a leisurely dinner and read on the couch while M got the kids!

  1. If you pull the centers out, their smell will calm down a bit. I love these, but their perfume is so overpowering.

    Hope you’re feeling better. And, happy birthday!

  2. Thus my love/hate relationship with lilies.

  3. Same feelings here. They are heavenly for about 5 minutes. But still gorgeous.

  4. I’m SO allergic to those the smell makes me recoil in terror!

  5. When I was growing, the were used only for funerals (and were ALWAYS at funerals. every single one – a southern thing perhaps?) and Easter, and my family called them Death Lilies. Hysterically, I was well into my 20’s before I discovered that wasn’t their actual name, and the first time I saw a bride carrying these, after we moved north, I literally gasped out loud in the church because it was….but apparently only to me.
