Not Fake



I know these look fake, but they aren't. Amazing but true these are real roses and they are shining today in my home. They were a last minute impulse buy as I wizzed through the local supermarket. Marked down to $5 a bunch I couldn't resist them. I was in one of those moods this morning and decided to put them in a vintage tin filled with water.
Happy Monday.

  7. Hi Simone

    They are absolutely beautiful - (and they look so perfect it is easy to think they might be fake)

    I am with you on the mark down thing

    I too purchased some roses last week and they were marked down to $6.50 all ten of them - they were perfect and I couldn't work it out.
    So I have had them for a week and only one is showing signs of tiredness.

    Lucky for both of us I guess :)

    have a great day/night

  21. They look so beautiful. Recently a friend said to me she doesnt see wasting a few dollars on flowers that last a week. I said I don't see always wasting money on desert junk thats gone in a day. Hey we all like desert junk sometime but the flowers boost your mood for a week and the junk boost your mood for a couple hours then you get a sugar low and your mood drops because you ate calories you didnt or shouldnt have.. :)
