Hi sweet friends, I hope your week is going well – it’s been a while since my last visit with you. After my last out-of town trip I felt a little under the weather and my inspiration tank was running low. I’m doing a lot better – ready to tackle some unfinished projects here at home. I would love to share pictures of our new deck and patio but, the deck is not quite finished and hubby is using the patio as temporary storage for his equipment and other misc. items. I have to tell myself, it’s okay…he still has a full-time job and only has certain times available to work on outdoor projects. I can’t wait to “Pretty-up” the patio! How was your Mother’s Day? I received some beautiful flowers on Saturday and by Monday some of the blooms were a little droopy. I decided to divide the bouquet into two smaller ones, taking out the droopy heads.
The pink lilies were placed in a wicker basket and became part of a small vignette along with a couple of faux boxwood topiaries. This tray is on the breakfast table.
You remember my “chubby” cement bird…he likes the attention and has been part of many arrangements.
The rest of the flowers were used in a small arrangement in an antique silver pitcher. Given the proper care maybe these flowers will stay pretty a little while longer.
I’m so happy you stopped by, you make my day! I’ll talk with you soon!
Happy Mother’s Day! May your special day be filled with blessings, joy and sweet memories! I’ll visit with you soon again! Hugs, moni
