Flowers on Friday: Roses

I missed yesterday's post, I have what can only be known as the WORST COLD ever. Me . . . over exaggerating . . . never ;)
Lee brought roses home, along with a gallon of orange juice and some cold fx :) I'm starting to feel better already, maybe it's the orange juice but I prefer to think it's the roses.

I LOVE using a round vase for roses. I wish I could give you a well thought out answer as to why . . . but I can't, I just think they look great in a round vase.
Anyone have a favorite shaped vase??


  1. Sorry to hear you are feeling a bit under the weather! The whole volleyball team was passing that around last week...oh the joys of the beginning of a new school year and germs galore! The roses are beautiful. I too love a round vase. I think it is because it instantly makes any flower arrangement look fuller. Hope you have a good weekend. Chicken Noodle soup is always great for a cold!!

  2. Sorry you're not feeling well, but those roses are gorgeous! How thoughtful of your husband. Those flowers look awesome in your library as well.

  3. Beautiful roses! I hope your start feeling better soon!

  4. Your roses look great in that little round vase.

    My favorite vase shape is a simple straight cylinder. I have a bunch of them in all different sizes. :)

  5. Hi Ashli! Sorry to hear you are sick but BONUS about the roses :)
    I just wanted to let you know that I've featured your wonderful cupcake stand today over on my blog. Thanks for the continued inspiration! :) Get better soon and enjoy the long weekend!

  6. Lee is a sweetheart! I don't get flowers often enough to have a favorite vase, I actually technically don't even own a vase! Last time I received flowers they were from my best friend and I put them in some blue mason jars. That worked beautifully. :)
    Hope you are feeling back to normal soon!

  7. I prefer roses in a round vase, too.... makes them seem less formal, I think. I put tulips in a round vase, too.

    Hope you feel better soon.

  8. i just love your blog. your house is JUST perfect. i am really working at making our home greener and your blog is one of my go-to references. thanks for sharing!

  9. You KNOW it is the roses and the very thoughtful Lee. I'm so sorry you are sick. Sleep a lot this weekend and just pamper yourself. Hugs!

  10. those roses are beautiful, i can't wait to see what i find at the organic framers market today flower wise.... love that you read bill bryson too! read his Australia book and think of me :)

  11. When did you and Lee begin your flowers for Friday tradition? I think it is such a great idea!


  12. Sorry you're under the weather! Lovely little bouquet presented in such a charming way - love the round vase! I have a square "cube" vase about the same size that I like to put roses in:

    Get well soon - LOVE your blog - you truly are an inspiration! :)

  13. Funny, I just put that Bill Bryson book on my reading list last week. :)

    I love my small round vase for hydrangeas. My fave - and they seem to last forever as long as they've got water!

    Hope you're feeling better after a long weekend of R&R.

  14. Isn't it wonderful when you put a vase of roses ..... or any flower for that matter in a room, and see how beautiful the room looks. I would rather have fresh cut flowers everyday rather than diamonds!!! Hope you feel better.

  15. Lisa,
    I don't know exactly when it started, but every two weeks they just kept coming, and I didn't want to question it! haha
    Here's our First Flowers on Friday post:
    Lots of Love
