A Day Filled with Flowers!!!

Beautiful Peonies!!!

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!!


  1. Love your peonies. I saw a ton of on sale at whole foods the other day, they are so beautiful. I need to plan a party so I have a good reason to buy them!

  2. A peonie party!! I love it!! They smell so wonderful!! When I woke this morning I could smell them all over the house, great way to start the morning!!
