Daisies

Hey hey!!!

I’ve always wanted daisy hair accessories, and now I have ’em! These are simple iron-on appliques from Joann Fabric, and I glued alligator clips on the back.

And just like that, you have a very playful and retro look! Daisies instantly remind me of the 1960’s and early 1970’s. ♥

“They’re so friendly. Don’t you think daisies are the friendliest flower?”

Remember the movie You’ve Got Mail?! My mom used to watch that movie ALL the time when I was a kid. I loved it, too! It’s a really cute romantic comedy, and daisies make me think of this one scene in particular.

Daisies also make me think of the art film, Daisies, which I watched in my Art Appreciation class in college, the last semester before I graduated.

Daisies-1966

I remember it was a very unusual and surreal film, and the retro look was what really caught my attention (it’s from 1966).

It is a Czech film, and it follows these two young ladies and their misadventures, filled with crazy antics and their carefree perspective on life, in which they take nothing seriously.

The film was banned after the Soviet invasion in 1968, in which creative arts were greatly restricted.

Anytime I see daisies, I think of the movie. 🙂

Okay, so these are not daisies…in fact, I believe they are just plain ol’ weeds, because they are growing out of a crack in the asphalt in the parking lot at my work. However!!! I find them to be rather beautiful and I sort of watch them as they grow with each passing work day (I am easily entertained).

When I take my break at work, I slip out to the back of the warehouse and have a snack, read a little bit and check them out. They’re interesting…

It kind of proves that beauty can be found anywhere, no? Even behind a dusty warehouse in a parking lot. I finally decided to photograph them since they (mostly) became in full bloom these last few days.

This is my current read!!! ♥ I finished No Easy Day by Mark Owen, and it definitely became one of my favorite SEAL books I’ve read (so far). It was so good and one thing I have noticed with reading books written by Navy SEALs is their similar sense of humor, which has me laughing out loud at times while I read.

I’m on chapter four at this point, where Marcus Luttrell is about to start BUD/S training (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training), and I already know it’s going to be sooooo hard to put down. And I haven’t even gotten to the truly intense parts of the book yet.

Who else loves it when they get so into a book, they just don’t want to leave the pages? ♥

 

♥ Until next time! ♥

  1. I love daisies too! Your barrettes came out super cute, and it’s clever how you tied in the quote from You’ve Got Mail and also the art movie. Who isn’t into a friendly flower or being carefree? Speaking of which, I think that tracking the flower at your work is a fun and no doubt relaxing lunchtime activity. It’s important to break away and take time for you. 🙂
