Decor on the cheap

Walking back from Cafe Presse the other day after a pleasant snack of pain et beurre (with confiture) and chocolat chaud, I came across a traffic island with a small patch of flowers in the center. And among the still living plants I found these beauties. They look to me like the kind of thing I would see in some fancy home design store. The kind of item that would have an outlandish price tag... to which I would reply in my head, "Who the hell would pay that kind of money for dead flowers?" Well, my sweets, I didn't have to pay one penny for these precious little retired blooms. And I feel just as fancy for having found them. Don't you think they're gorgeous?
