Where Did The Flowers Go?

Hello Dear Readers!

A while ago, when I did a Monday Morning Blooms post,

someone asked what I do with the flowers when I do a “floral vignette”

using several vases and containers of flowers in one setting.

Today, I shall show you what I did with the many flowers and vases that I

presented in the Citrus and Flowers post.

Citrus and Flowers – Monday Morning Blooms

Hello Dear Readers!

It’s been a while (again).  Things are moving and shaking around here with many

decisions to make with regard to the new house. Valentine’s Day was momentous in many ways.

Other than spending it with my Loves, we finally broke ground! Did you hear the earth move?

Now on the subject of special things happening, today is very special as it is

the 3rd Monday of the month which means it is Monday Morning Blooms day,

when I and my most wonderful fellow bloomers Lidy, Mary and Pam

will be sharing some great floral inspiration.

Today’s common theme is Citrus and Flowers.

So sit back and enjoy some great floral inspiration!!

Ironstone Pitchers of Summer – Floral Friday

Hello Dear Readers.

Welcome to another fabulous Floral Friday,

when I join my sweet Floral Friday friends, Lidy, Mary and Pam

to present fantastic floral inspiration for you to enjoy!

The links to these fabulous ladies’ floral creations are below their image

at the bottom of this post.

Hope you all had a most wonderful Independence Day . . . 

I am up to my elbows and beyond in moving and packing, so today I am

presenting one of my most favorite floral vignettes that I had presented to you

years ago for my Ironstone Pitchers of Summer – Floral Friday.

I believe it was George Bernard Shaw that said,

“Imitation is not just the sincerest form of flattery,

it is the sincerest form of learning.”

And that is what I did today . . . learn . . . from some of the best.

I did it again . . . I took a magazine cover 

of one of my most favorite magazines and I tweaked it for a summer vignette.

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.
