sometimes, when you’re fresh outta flowers, you need to get creative. i see an empty vessel and i want to fill it with something pretty! and i always like having fresh flowers in the house — and i like going to the flower mart to get a week’s supply. they generally last a lot longer than a week when i buy them there, which is nice, too. but i didn’t get there this weekend so i found myself using fruit to brighten up my space. we did a little photo shoot here yesterday and had some of these kumquat branches left over, and i’d bought a few tangelos at the market, too so i created a little vignette at the window using what was on hand. i ended up quite liking the result — like a little slice of california sunshine right in my own home. easy for you to do too — no matter what state you live in!
