Floral Friday Feat. John and Yoko and the Weekly Post Party

Love is the flower you’ve got to let grow.

John Lennon

Phew. It’s been a busy couple of weeks. I have been getting out more now that I’m fully vaccinated and it’s been wonderful. I recently moved from a lonely home on a mountaintop back to my hometown, so my new world is completely different from the one I retreated from when the pandemic hit.

Prior to moving to the mountain, I lived a life of constant vintage hunting and I was fond of walking and exploring the romance of my surroundings. I didn’t realize how much these things meant to me until I found them again in suburbia. It has been wonderful to be back in civilization. To be near family. To take long Eliza Bennet walks in the early morning while contemplating suburbia’s fascination with green grass. To meet up with a friend at the park for a picnic on said green grass. And, of course, to venture out in search of vintage to share with you!

Each Friday, I plan to bring you some floral inspiration and a weekly recap of my blog posts. Today’s floral inspiration belongs to the famous loves, John Lennon and Yoko Ono. “Oh Yoko!” is one of my favorite John Lennon songs. It sounds like summer sunshine and it is a song that holds many happy memories for me. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Since this is my first go-around, I am going to give you a collection of some of my all-time fave posts for this week’s Post Party. So, here it goes!
