Happy new years!

I was taken quite by surprise when our IT team posted this for the new year.  It is our staff turned into cartoons/avatars!  I have never been turned into a cartoon before, I kind of like it! 

Can you guess which one is me? haha! 

I am at the bottom with the wavy hair and fur collar.  My company does really cool things with DNA and can help you find your ancestral past!  For more info go here.

How to: buy affordable flowers for your home

I love having fresh flowers in my home but I am a girl on a budget!  I can't afford to go crazy every week buying flowers that rival my grocery bill!

But I learned a little secret from a friend I want to share with you :)

Go into any flower shop, if it is a warehouse even better, and ask for how ever many dollars you want to spend in scraps.  These shops have scraps because of broken arrangements, snapped bases, etc.  If it is a small flower shop you may want to call ahead to make sure they have some on hand.  

For these flowers you see in the three pictures above I asked for $5 worth of scraps and this is what I got!

I know it isn't a ton of flowers, but for me a little splash of color and greenery in a few rooms is all I really need.  If you need more, you can always ask for more :)

These flowers lasted for two weeks because of the sugar I put in their water making my flower budget $2.50 a week!  I also displayed them in mason jars, and thrifted vases. 

That is lovely and cheap!
