I'll likely change my mind when the spring daffodils arrive, but I'm off fresh flowers for the time being. They just die too quickly for this economy.
Instead, I've been relying on big bowls of fruit (oranges & pomegranates mostly) and a lots of candles. Recession or not, they seem just right for cold January nights.
For $18, you can get one of these pretty 3-wick Voluspa candles at Anthropologie. Champaca is my favorite and I had the Capri Fig going at my wedding reception. They last a very, very long time.
