"Pretty Little Things" Fridays

Life's so hectic & busy that I often forget to slow down enough to appreciate the little things.  And it's the little things- the simple pleasures- that get me excited & make me appreciate my life.  If you've been reading Pure Style Home long enough, you probably know that consistency in blog posts isn't really my thing, but I thought it would be nice to try to post about little simple pleasures on Fridays.  I'm home with my boys on Fridays & only have a few spare minutes to do posts, so I thought "Pretty Little Things" would be a nice way to share a little something good that I've come across during the week or have going on at my house. 

This week, my simple pleasure is being able to bring in massive pink floppy roses from my garden:


{They smell like Heaven!!}

The roses echo the old-fashioned black & white cabbage rose wallpaper in my kitchen nook...  Eating breakfast (mm-mm pancakes!) with the boys and the little white pot of roses on the kitchen table just made me happy.  So simple. So easy. 

What simple pleasure have you indulged in this week?


xoxo, Lauren

So pretty! I had the same indulgence earlier this week- my husband brought me in a rose that he cut from the bush outside, and I loved seeing the bright pop of pink in the living room for a few days.

Lauren,

You are so right, it is all about the little things. Everyone needs a reminder of that once in awhile.

Have a happy mother's day! Enjoy your little ones.

Couldn't agree more!! I love splurging on a good candle- Seda France, French Tulip is my current fave! Happy Mother's Day!!

Beautiful roses! Yesterday, my feet were aching so much from work, so I gave myself a mini pedi - made my feet feel beautiful all evening!

Lauren- So jealous - our roses are not out yet here in New York. Yours are gorgeous!

My simple pleasure today was watching clouds. We had a windy-blue-sky-with-fluffy-clouds kind of day!

Love them! My favorite are little vases and tiny flower arrangements or buying an orchid stem for $3 since they last almost a month.
