Happy Sunflowers on the deck
Poor little Gerbera at the end of her story, but still pretty!!
Above are pictures of my flowers left over from the weekend. I love peonies!! They are so delicate and lady like and smell so gorgeous!! I love the soft pink against the bright blue glass bowl and the contrast of the delicate petals against the woven mat and dark wood of the table. I love contrasts!!
The bright sunflowers and gerbera daisies were used on my outdoor table. The beautiful weather just screamed for a shot of bright color. I am going to post soon about my weekend outdoor table setting that was inspired from the pictures I posted the other day.
While I was walking thru the neighborhood yesterday, I stopped at a yard sale one of the neighbors was having. They had a beautiful set of blue and white Haviland china; 12 dinner plates and 12 salad plates all in good shape; only 5 teacups and saucers and a great price. My plan was to go home and bring back money for it later in the day; in the rush of all the activities of the afternoon I forgot and didn't think about it until it was too late!! A missed opportunity, but I'm sure I'll come across a deal like that again.
Today's little luxury is to fill your day with flowers, literally or figuratively. I have said it many times before, flowers can add so much to the mood of a room and a person. Just the thought of them makes me happy!!
