This year, with about $13.00 dollars worth of grocery store cut flowers I was able to make just what I was hoping for on a major budget.

Plaid has been a fun trend this fall and winter. It is another one of those trends that I’m not sure I can pull off, but with the help of some cute and feminine plaid I think I can.
