PERFECT PEONIES


Summer Peonies...
Gorgeous ruffly blooms
in passionate pink and snow white.


These peonies were at the market the other day sitting in a galvanized bucket
looking so sweet and cottage romantic...


A perfect tabletop bouquet for a shabby dinner,
fantastic on a sideboard for some cottage charm,
or just by themselves on a chair
simple and beautiful.


They were marked $10.00 each bunch originally,
but marked down to $3.00.
4 little bunches of them came home with me
& I have been inspired by their beautiful blooms
and intoxicating scent for days.


Each day, they are opening bigger and more of their ruffly
beautiful layers come out.


Seriously loving them.

Happy Tuesday!

  10. Hello,
    I just visited your blog today. Those are lovely flowers. I was reading your "About Me," and I noticed a few of the same interests. I have to tell you, I was a stay at home mom, also, with 3 kids now grown. It was the best decision I made. I see you are interested in Intererior Design. My daughter, Jess, has her degree in Interior Design. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. The link is: http://redrosealley.blogspot.com We did a post in June about "Home Treasures," and it will give you a chance to get to know us better. I would enjoy coming back to visit you to see all your creative ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

  17. I am loving the peonies right now. I guess it's partly because their season is so fleeting? I love buying them in tight balls and watching them grow so huge.

  29. Hi Courtney, I just wanted to let you know I used your dust ruffle as tablecloth idea this weekend, it's on my current post. I don't think it's as bunched up and romantic as yours was, but it did the trick! Hugs, Kim
