I love the flower are sexual currency motto. I think I am going to re-use it for a pre-Valentine love-card.

Belinda @ Wild Acre said...

I didn't think Valentine's day could ever be cool. You have just proved me wrong.

If I say quirky hello sailor in my sleep tonight I shall blame it on you!

megan said...

the best. I used to hate the men who would come in and request "a single Loooong stem red rose." They would always emphasize the long. Definitely overcompensating for their cheapness.

Mrs B said...

You are the female equivalent of Don Draper.
Pure genius.
What I'd give to watch the gents in your shop when you refer them to the size scale.

Ah ha ha this is brilliant!

flwrjane said...

Well this has been reposted on every blog in blogspere.

As well it should.

Now every other florist feels like a granny sitting in a rocker offering wilted bunches of carnations to the lovers.

Off to zumba to shake it up and get inspired.

The hound will be fed. Any fallout from ambitious ad campaigns will be covered by elastoplast.
You have the creation of a monster.
Albeit a mischievous, original and rather lovely one.

My dad used to always do Valentines Day by walking into our local florist and saying 'Anything but Roses' and putting down money. Mom always got spectacular bouquets...
