This Week’s Happenings and a Fun Announcement

Today is all about this week’s happenings and a fun announcement.

Fun Announcement? Well you shall see at the end of the post.

So this week as far as the house is concerned was all about the Home Inspection.

Now that definitely is not the fun announcement.

In order to stay ahead of my posts, which I seldom do . . .

I was creating my floral creation for the next Floral Friday

which will be on June 15th (the third Friday of the month).

For me, it was all about Peonies and more.

I am giving you some “sneaky peekies” but you will have to wait til June 15th

to see what the theme is. If you missed the last Floral Friday,

I must say that I have made 3 arrangements this week so far.

Going forward, I am making simple arrangements

as I start to get more serious with packing! 

I still need flowers around me, but time is pretty tight around here lately.

So simple is good! . . . Like this simple silver Mint Julep cup filled with pink roses.

Another arrangement I created was for a post that will go live on Friday.

This is the fun part:

Can you guess?

Can you see what is beyond the flowers?

A Patriotic Themed Tree.

I am joining 3 fellow bloggers in a Patriotic Tree Campaign sponsored by Tree Classics.

Our patriotic themed-inspired white Christmas trees are a tribute to people in service.

In addition to this fun and most inspired blog hop, there will be a Giveaway.

Tree Classics will give away a (to be announced) beautiful white Christmas tree to one lucky winner!

I will give you details tomorrow.

So stay tuned tomorrow as I present my Pretty Patriotic Themed Tree.

    All I can say is “WOW!” You are amazing with all that you have going on…….I think that the Energizer Bunny comes to mind! I absolutely love your house and everything that you have done on the inside as well as the outside. Very familiar with your area since I grew up in Burlington,NC but now living in Murrells Inlet, SC on the coast. My daughter lives in Pinehurst, NC and is definitely planning on visiting your favorite consignment shop!! Love, Love, Love the tree with the patriotic theme! Gorgeous!
