Fall Back.....Spring Forward

When I look out my window at this dreary day, it's hard to believe it will soon be overflowing with shades of pink, red, blue and purple.

Along with my love of roses..... my most favored flower are peonies. Sadly it's hit or miss whether or not the rain will wash the blooms away before I can enjoy them. So, on those rare sunny days I harvest as many as I can gather.

You can imagine the abundance of peony arrangements that overtake every nook and cranny of my home.

With bated breath I wait their arrival.

But, until then.....I hit my stash to find a few reminders of whats to come.

A glass door knob, faux flowers and a bit of lace is all I need.

Enhancing my (faux) flowers with a little spritz.
I have a collection of scented sprays.....rose, lavender or gardenia water.

A spring bouquet has bloomed!

Oh, how I love peonies, too. They are so lush and pretty!

I'm so sorry I haven't been blogging. I've had computer issues and am on Mr. Magpie's work computer tonight. Don't know when I am going to have a chance to get a new one because I am up to my eyeballs in life stuff... Adelaide's husband had a triple bypass (unexpected), and another friend's husband is in the final days of pancreatic cancer. I have had no time to blog which I miss SO much.

I hope to be back by the end of spring. I miss you and all of my blogging buddies.

Take good care...


Sheila :-)
