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.

Vintage French Canning Jars – Floral Friday

Welcome to Floral Friday,

when every first and third Friday of the month my friends and I present

some wonderful floral inspiration to you for your enjoyment.

Today, it is all about flowers in wonderful canning jars.

Do you remember my French Market Rolling Basket Story?

The story of how I trekked it from California to North Carolina?

Well, there is one thing that I did not mention.

When I purchased the market basket, I also purchased  several other things.

At the time, I figured if I was going to ship this basket, I may as well fill it with goodies!

A few of them you will see today for Floral Friday. One more item remains for another day.

Floral Friday – Flowers and Boxwood

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram,

you will know that we had quite the snow event here!

The weather predictions originally stated “the possibility” of snow, maybe a dusting.

Then they stated . . .wait a minute. . . now we may see 3 to 5 inches of snow.

Well, we got that and more! . . . 10.5 inches to be exact.

My neighbor set out to make sure that the stats were correct,

so out to the golf course he went with a measuring stick. Yep! 10 1/2 inches for sure!

He also helped me shovel the driveway, so that my hubby who was driving home

from a business trip could drive onto the driveway without slipping and sliding.

So what is a person to do before a snow event, other than get the milk and bread?

Go shopping for flowers!

So here is another Floral Friday – Flowers and Boxwood
