Our April weather in the Pacific Northwest has brought to mind the springtime rhyme, "April showers bring may flowers". Things are blooming, and there is color budding everywhere!
This month, I thought it would be fun to explore, "decorating with flowers"!
Not only can you bring in beautiful bouquets, flowers can be brought into our homes with artwork, pillows and even food!

Bring in the fresh scent of Provence into your home with lavender, which has calming qualities.
Williams Sonoma offers a wonderful lavender diffuser. It is worth spending a little more to get a high quality oil. Some artificial lavender oils are a bit harsh. When the scent gets weak, simply turn the rods over, no flames!
I keep one in my bedroom, it is such a lovely fragrance to fall asleep to.
