Concrete and Honey Postcards and favorite blog of the day

I adore roses and cards of all kinds. (My husband often scolds me for spending so much of my paycheck on cute cards and stationary.) When I saw these sweet postcards by Concrete and Honey, I knew I’d have to add them to my Christmas list.

On her blog,, there are many more beautiful flower photos and she recently posted a great deal: …AND if you buy a postcard or postcard set in the next few weeks I’ll pop another postcard in for free. If there is a certain (free) postcard you’d like, just convo me and let me know and if it’s in stock, it’s yours. I am so grateful for all your kind words and support over the past year it really is the least I can do.

In her February 13th post, (my birthday!), she explained why she named her blog, “Concrete and Honey”: The clever ‘Kiwi living in France’, aka Mary from l’antipodeuse asked me why I called my blog Concrete & Honey, this was my answer: There are 2 reasons: 1) “inspiration is everywhere” was taken; and 2) they are my favourite lyrics from a Jewel song ‘Kiss the Flame’. But it’s kind of meant to reflect the inspiration I get from living inner city.

I want to brave love, one that makes me weak in the knees
I want a crazy, crazy love
One that makes me come undone at the seams’
Cause I’m tired of all these pilgrims, these puritans, these thieves
Of all these unbelieverswho whittle love down at the knees
Let these swift roads destroy themselves
Let the world fall into its sleep
For we shall be left standing
To face what’s left of
concrete and honey

Kiss the flame
Let’s run with the hunted, the untamed
Kiss the flame
Embrace the faceless, the unnamed
Kiss the flame

There are nightmares on the sidewalks
There are jokes on TV
There are people selling thoughtlessness with such casualty
But wherefore art thou Romeo where have all the brave men gone
Show me one man who know his own heart
To him I shall belong

Kiss the flame
