Fresh Blooms

March 12, 2014

After winter, must come spring – words that are really resonating with me these days. I’ve been feeling so blaaahhh lately… Things have been stressful and frustrating, to say the least. And quite frankly, it seems like all my creativity and inspiration have disappeared. Thankfully we were blessed with sunshine and warm weather yesterday, so I took full advantage. Getting out and clearing my mind was the best thing I could do.
My fiancé is so good to me – he went out and bought some fresh blooms, which I quickly put together to make this arrangement. I love it, just a little reminder that Spring is almost here!
I hope you’re all having a wonderful week.

  • Sarah | Safaris and Sunsets

    Darlin, I know how you feel! Spring is right around the corner, I keep telling myself. In the meantime, flowers are the way to go.

  • Brittany

    Good God woman, could your blog be any more beautiful!? Every time I visit, I fall in love all over again.

    As always, can’t wait to see more!

    xx -b.

  • Danielle

    Sorry to hear that you are stressed out and feeling uninspired. Possibly the worst feeling ever. Hope things brighten up for you! I am glad you were able to get outdoors yesterday. It was hard not too :) I hope your week gets better. xx

    • Victoria | Oh So Pretty

      Thank you, Danielle! Yeah, things are just stressful – jobs, home, health, seems like when something gets better thing, something goes wrong! But like I said, after winter, must come Spring… so I’m just waiting for the clouds to clear and the sun to shine!

      Hope you’re having a great week! xo

  • juni

    they are beautiful! he has great taste ;)

  • Alecia

    I feel ya sister! I feel drained from this winter and my creativity is no where to be found these days. :( But, you are right spring is inevitable and it will surely brighten things up a bit. :)

    • Victoria | Oh So Pretty

      Always can count on you to brighten my day, A! I cannot even imagine the winter up north – I wouldn’t know what to do with myself. But your posts are exploding with creativity, lady! xoxo

  • Natalie

    These are beautiful and fresh blooms always help boost my mood when winter is taking over! Blah is definitely the perfect word to describe it lately… I’ve been searching for Spring inspiration for the blog to try and get my creativity flowing again!


    • Victoria | Oh So Pretty

      Yes totally agree with you, Natalie – the cold is giving me a brain freeze or something because there’s just nothing! No creativity or inspiration! Here’s to Spring and for BOTH of us to get something going soon ;)

      I hope you’re having a great week!

  • Hanna

    Oh my dear, those stressed out, uninspired weeks suck. It’s good to know that everything will be over and you will be back to feeling creative really really soon! :)

    Keep your head up xx

  • Kelly Brito

    Isn’t it awesome how the coming of Spring puts us in a good mood, almost automatically? I’m incredibly ready for Spring! Let the pollen allergies hit the fan!!! :)

    • Victoria | Oh So Pretty

      Haha Kelly – do you have allergies? Thankfully, it’s not too bad for me, but I don’t know, I haven’t been outside in a long time haha! Funny thing is, I was so excited for the cool weather so I can wear oversized knits and leggings, but how many times can you wear the same knits? It gets boring, and those things need to be dry-cleaned, ya know?

      Here’s to spring! Hope you’re having a great week!

      • Kelly Brito

        Oh, I have no allergies. That’s why I don’t mind if they hit the fan. hahahah Selfish me!
        I love oversized clothing, but this winter was just too cold. The best knits wouldn’t be enough to willingly put me through this winter again. u.u

  • ashley minck

    While this weather is a bummer you wouldn’t be able to tell you are feeling it too from the looks of your posts recently! I love to stop by your little corner of the internet for a pick me up when the day seems to be dragging on! Your fiancé did very good, those flowers are just beautiful!

    Have a great day!

    • Victoria | Oh So Pretty

      Aww you’re so sweet, Ashley! I’m so glad you’re not able to see the stress and frustration through the computer! haha!

      And yes, he did such a good job ;) I hope you’re having a great week!

  • Becca

    I’m sorry to hear you’ve been stressed lately! I hope the spring will bring on a calmer spell for you. Love those pretty flowers. I love seeing all the flowers start to bloom this time of year!

    Becca | Ladyface Blog

  • Jacquelyn | lark & linen

    I, of course, would never wish that blah feeling on anyone, but it’s comforting to know that one of the most creative people in my world gets burnt out from time to time! It’ll come back! In the meantime, enjoy those blooms (such a sweet man you’ve got there)


    • Victoria | Oh So Pretty

      Oh goodness, Jac, I’m beyond flattered you’d put me in that category – seriously, means so much coming from you! But I’ve been beyond burnt out! Need some inspiration — from lark & linen!!! ;)

      Hope you’re having a great week! xo

  • Tracy

    He purchased you so beautiful flowers.

    Tracy @ Sunny Days and Starry Nights

  • Yolonda J Washington

    That was so thoughtful of him. The flowers are lovely.

  • libys11

    i really love the idea of fresh flowers myself. it just brings life to any space! :D

    sorry to hear that you’ve been uninspired lately.. i have those times as well and i really blame it on the weather, more specifically, this extended winter we seem to be having.. aaahhh!!! why can’t summer just be here already!!!

  • Jessica (Coco/Mingo)

    Absolutely gorgeous arrangement – how sweet of your fiance! :) Flowers are always a nice pick-me-upper! I hope things get better for you soon, V! Sending you my love <3

  • Ffion

    It’s reassuring to know someone as creative and inspiring as you has these moments too. I have no doubt you’ll be back on track soon – though, looking at that beautiful arrangement, I find it hard to believe you’re lacking in creativity at all…it’s just gorgeous Victoria!

  • Kadie

    Man. I resonate on this one. With the last breath of winter, I get ideas, but have no motivation to follow through with them. Here’s to hoping fresh blooms in Spring means a fresh start to trying new things!!

  • Plum Pretty Sugar

    Gorgeous Victoria! We send you so much love and warm wishes!


  • Audrey - This Little Street

    You’re so right – Let it go, take some time to take a breath and the inspiration will come back :) Blogging takes so much creativity out of all of us, and sometimes I think our expectations to always come up with amazing pretty ideas are a bit too high. Big hugs!

  • Miranti

    Beautiful blooms! Here’s to new seasons xo

  • drinkcitra

    Aw that was sweet of him. I love the dusty green color of the leaves :D

  • sue

    Lovely arrangement…I do hope Spring is here soon.

  • caroline

    what kind of flowers are those?

  • Iquo

    Your floral arrangement looks gorgeous! What a wonderful thing to have to excite you for Spring. I am so tired of this cold. We had snow the other day and then the day after that it was 50 degrees outside. The snow melted. It was just a big mess. Thanks for sharing this lovely photo with us!


  • Letitia Elizabeth

    I am so ready for spring.

  • Kate

    I just love how you’ve arranged them. What a pro you are!

  • Latrina | oftreesandhues

    I hope you’re feeling better, my dear! I have had a similar week — but the sun definitely came out and the warmth + brightness made it all better. :) I hope you have a happy weekend! <3


    Thankfulness to my father who shared with me about
    this blog, this website is truly awesome.

  • Lavonne

    Pretty great post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and
    wished to say that I’ve truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
    After all I will be subscribing for your rss feed and I’m hoping you write again very soon!


    I think that what you published was very reasonable. But,
    think about this, suppose you were to create a awesome headline?
    I am not saying your information is not solid, but suppose you added something that makes people want more?

    I mean Oh So Pretty: Fresh Blooms is a little
    boring. You might look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a related picture
    or two to grab people excited about everything’ve
    written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

  • Domenic

    Hi excellent website! Does running a blog such as this require a large amount of work?

    Hi, I do think your web site could possibly be having web browser compatibility issues.
    Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine
    but when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Apart from that,
    excellent website!


    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thank you!

    enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking a few
    minutes and actual effort to create a great article… but what can I
    say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

    I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours these days, but I never discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It’s lovely price sufficient for me. In my opinion,
    if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  • contract phones

    I think what you said was actually very logical. However, what about
    this? what if you were to write a awesome headline? I mean, I don’t wish
    to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a
    title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Oh So
    Pretty: Fresh Blooms is kinda vanilla. You should look at
    Yahoo’s home page and see how they write news headlines to
    get people interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to
    get people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d

    If you are interested feel free to send me an email.
