Year of Flowers

When Abbey, of the wonderful blog Abbey Goes Design Scouting, turned 29 this year, her husband gave her a very creative and thoughtful gift.  He made up 52 envelopes each filled with a note and a bit of cash to spend on fresh flowers from their neighborhood flower stands - a new note and bunch of flowers each week!  It is a gift that lasts the whole year.  I think he is going to have a hard time topping that one next year! What a wonderful idea! 

Abbey has been documenting her purchases each week on her blog and flickr account.  I always look forward to seeing what she comes home with.  Here are some of her latest choices:

Check out her blog for more each week and for some great interior design ideas too!  She also has two Etsy stores - stationery products and vintage decorative items. Take some time to poke around!
