Juicy Summer hues ...

The hot pinks, fuschias, magentas, raspberries, yellows, purples and oranges, with ripe and coling accents of green.  It's one of the only ways I like green -- with flowers -- but when it works, it REALLY works!

Moving to Pinterest?

Rumor has it that Blogger is going away!

See story HERE.

Well, it's not so much going away as being re-branded.  No longer called Blogger, but "google blogs" instead. 

This might be the time for me to switch Buttercup Bungalow over to Pinterest ...

... which, like tumblr, is a quicker way to blog (there's got to be a word for "picture blogging" ... is there?  I'm so behind the technical times).

Once I can figure out how to actually "pin" images from my blog to my own Pinterest board, I may begin to move my favorite images from this blog over to Pinterest.

What I really do nowdays here  on Buttercup is post photo sets anyway.  It keeps my design mind and imagination active, and allows me to to indulge my "girly girl" tendencies without making people around me gag.  (I don't have a lot of girly girl friends in real life).

Anyway ... if and when I do start moving things over to Pinterest, I'll surely let you know. 

Thanks for reading!


Prada Ephemeral Infusion de Rose

I'm not a particularly big fan of Miuccia Prada's clothing, but I love the design of her fragrance bottles.


I have no idea what the "juice" smells like, but I love the packaging!
