here's a tulip to match your eyes.

since my valentines day flowers came and went, i decided that i wanted to keep fresh flowers in my bedroom at all times. last week i picked up some pink and yellow tulips from whole foods and it really makes me happy to see them every time i open my bedroom door.

i have two vases. one is really tall and skinny and square, and the other looks a bit like the one above. pretty classic styles that seem to fit most stems pretty well. maybe someday when i've got an extra 200$ lying around i'll be able to get an aalto savoy vase. it was designed by finnish architect alvar aalto in 1936 for a competition at the paris world’s fair. my favorite part is that he entered anonymously under the pseudonym “eskimo woman's leather breeches.” they are still mouth-blown and hence pretty expensive. but it sure would look beautiful on my bedside table filled with white lilies.
