Win Free Flowers for Valentine's Day

UPDATE (2/12) This contest is now closed and I would like to congratulate Katie Anderson for winning the $30 gift card! Katie is a blogger herself and you can check her out at Thanks to everyone who played along!  Stay tuned, there is always more good stuff to come...

Look what showed up on my doorstep today!

The Koran states, "Bread feeds the body... but flowers feed the soul."

There's nothing quite as wondrous as a flower. Bathed in color, supple to touch, luscious in scent. Flowers can be sexy, sensuous, playful, flirty, mysterious and are always magical to behold.

Emma Goldman said, "I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck." I don't know if I'd go that far... but I do love a fragrant bouquet of flowers.

The Flower Cart is a Dallas florist who would like to make your Valentine's Day - or any 'ole day - a little brighter.  They have given me a  $30 gift card to bestow on one lucky reader.

In case you don't win, you can always contact The Flower Cart and place an order. Steve's a swell guy with a great sense of floral style sure to make your sweetheart swoon!

Disclosure: My flowers for this promotion were provided to me free of charge by the wonderful folks at The Flower Cart in Coppell, Texas.  The review reflects opinions that are my own.


  1. I would send the flowers to my current roommate... my mom :) She has encouraged and supported me, letting me live with her the past few months while I've searched for a new job. I think it would be a nice way to show her how much I appreciate her.

    Also, I follow you on Twitter and I RT your post.

  2. What a fabulous looking blog!!!! you go, Cyn!!! MARAVILLOSO!

  3. Who would I send them loving hubby.

    Because he supports me, loves me, and is my best friend. He sacrifices everyday for his family, and doesnt mind only having a small part of the closet. He lets me sleep and closes the door when I have cramps...and kisses my cheek just to remind me it wont last long.

    I could go on...but thinking back. Out of almost 19 years. I have never sent him flowers. Oops.


  4. I'll be sending them to my fiance' at her school because she puts up with kindergartners all day and then deals with me the rest of the day :)

  5. I would send flowers to my sister-in-law who just broke up with her boyfriend.

  6. wonderful idea, cynthia!flowers are always a happy thing :)

    I would send flowers to my mom. She's recently gone through a very difficult divorce, but has constantly held her head high and is-every day-still such a positive and encouraging person to all those around her.

    love your blog!! XO
