Am I the only girl like this?

I don’t particularly care for flowers. Yep, that’s right. I don’t like flowers. I don’t want my husband to get me a bouquet. Ever.

See, I like to look at them. But I don’t really like the way they smell. I don’t really hate flowers completely. Although my favorite flowers to look at are iris, I don’t want to have them overpowering me with their scent. I’d much rather have a box of chocolates. Or a neat kitchen gadget.

I think this carries over a bit into the fact that I don’t particularly go for most things with flowers on them. I don’t really own floral print clothing. I like some accessories with over-the-top flowers, however. And I found this fabulous wallpaper that is just my sort of flora:

It’s bold, vintage-looking, and doesn’t smell. Can’t you just see this in a living room paired with some fun gray furniture?

I’m linking up to the Gussy Sews Workshop, but in the meantime, do any of you especially love (or hate!) flowers?

    I love flowers, but my allergies do not. So even though I'd love for my husband to bring home a bouquet, he doesn't because we'll all be sneezing and getting headaches. I'd love to have a flower garden though.

    I also have allergies that flowers bother … and for cut flowers, I dislike that they day within a week, I'm just like that 🙂 So yeah, I'm with you on the chocolate!!!

    I love the flowers in my yard, and occasionally (usually after a toddler has been involved!) I cut some to bring in. But, I much prefer the same gifts – chocolate or something fun for me to use. Or cash – who says no to cash, right? I do like floral prints though – I just got a new Vera purse for my birthday that I heart!
