"Daffy" is about how I feel right now. It's been a busy month at work; I keep writing to-do lists and thinking they are manageable, then realizing that I've left off two entire projects with looming deadlines.

But at least I finally got that polar bear wreath off the wall. You know, about two days ago.

I like what this woman does with flowers.

Oh, and I'd been wanting to try this with the mismatched candles for the longest time:

 But it was surprisingly hard to find candles in awesome colors that didn't cost $7 apiece. (I finally lucked out at a cookingware shop, of all places.)

I can't believe it took me until now to fall totally in love with daffodils. So simple, yet so flagrant.
