Memories of Picnics and Mason Jars – Floral Friday

Happy Friday Dear Readers!!

It’s another great Friday because it is Floral Friday!

Join me and my fabulously talented Floral Friday friends, Lidy, Mary and Pam

as we present our theme today of Picnics and Jars.

I had a tough time with this one today.

Not with the creation of our theme today, but the sweet memories

that the Mason/Ball jars brought to me as I gathered my pretties to share with you:

the Memories of Picnics and Mason Jars – Floral Friday.

I must say that things are progressing at the Berry Patch house.

Not as fast as we would like it, but we need to allow ourselves to enjoy life

and not be too intense about organizing our new spaces.

Well, that is what we keep telling ourselves!

There is still lots of work to be done.

I guess we could just live among the boxes with the bare minimum of what we need around us,

since the Berry Patch House is temporary; however, it is not us.

We both need a sense of calm, organization and “pretty”.

Which makes me think of what my mom always says about us:

that we are “two pods in a pea” . . . she gives new meaning to “two peas in a pod”  Gotta love her!

I thought I would be a bit methodical and after the Berry Patch Dining Room was done,

what better room to start off with than the room as you enter the house. The Foyer.

So here is my Foyer Reveal with the Louis XVI Antique Mirror.
