Blenko Glass. Heart of Glass Blog. Day of LOVE Give BLENKO
Perhaps it began with the Victorians. The Victorians telegraphed detailed messages with flowers in a bouquet -especially the eloquent rose. The same color could mean different things, a note or number of blooms on a stem would clarify the message. yellow for friendship or jealousy, white, innocence or silence. RED? Nothing but Love.
I love picking up traditions from other places and making them my own. 'Good things' good feelings, make life ... more wonderful, more magical, more beautiful. Become involved.
IF there is a PRINCE in your LIFE (or a FROG who might have Prince Potential) make certain he learns of this German Tradition - Make it a part of your life.
IF there isn't an available Frog or Prince then might I suggest as an INDEPENDENT WOMAN you phone Jim Fletcher at Food Among the Flowers, (346-7994) Charleston, W. Va http://www.foodamongtheflowers.com/ or Carlos at Milton Floral (304 743 9079) ask them to prepare a great bouquet for YOU!
OH! Don't FORGET To ask for a BLENKO GLASS COMPANY container for that bouquet. http://www.blenkoglass.com/ (304 743 9081.
Enjoy JUNE 1st
Be Good to Yourself and those you Love! hjh
Ps. How to Keep the Rose Alive:
Give them sugar (Like lemon/lime soda in the water and an aspirin and a
cap or bleach added to the water will increase the life).
