flowers for the flower... :)

this morning cutie woke me up to tell me that he was going downtown for some bloggy picture taking. i decided to tag along so we can run down to the flower district so i can buy some fakey flowers. ever since the reception in wisconsin- i've been in love with flower crowns. i had thought to buy one, but figured i could probably make then myself.
well- after walking around olvera street, having some lunchies and roaming around union station, we decided instead of facing the parking mess that is downtown la- we decided to head back home- but, i thought maybe to stop at micheal's really quick to buy some fakies. spent about $20 and home we went.

the only snag i ran into was running out of some of the little pink roses! so i had to run back out to buy some extra to finish... and ta-da! FINITO! :) maybe i can actually make it to the flower district some time soon. :)
