Good afternoon, hope your week is off to a good start. Mine just got a lot better because our porcelain container has arrived and we are busy little bees getting everything unloaded and inventoried then these beauties are off to their new owners! We have updated the shop site so all previously sold out items that have come back in are now in stock. Hard to believe we are nearly in the third week of June, summer is already flying! So this is an encore for all the peony lovers out there. I featured part one of For The Love of Peonies last week (click here for that post) and today is round 2, and yes, there will even be a round 3 because honestly I just could not get enough of these:) How I wish I could invent a special spray and preserve them forever, a truly perfect flower!! Can you imagine just being able to spray something on them and being able to preserve them as is? Read on if you love peonies, hope you enjoy….. ____________________________________ Added our two mid sized glass hurricanes with as many peonies as I coudl fit and added them to a hallway console Love them in a variety of containers, here they are in my favorite mid sized village vase (click here to see) Just got these back in…one of my most favorite footed planters (click here) And how stunning are they in our village scene pale blue ginger jar (coming back in July) Set our dining room table for no particular reason other than it was a great chance to use our pagoda flatware, pagoda salt and peppers, my beautiful chargers and of course the peonies were the finishing touch! All my favorite things in one picture:) Placed the pair on my dining room demi lune console Such a beautiful bloom! Placed them on my coffee table in my living room, where they just looked so pretty Love this beautiful little bud vase, they are on order and will be back in July Using peonies outdoors is a no brainer, they look right at home. ________________________________________________ Putting this post together put a little happiness in my day…could not love this flower more! What a shame that the season does not last longer and I cannot get these flowers to last forever, now that would be some invention for which I wold pay almost anything for:) How about you? Do you love peonies as much as I do? Thanks for stopping in, always love hearing from you. Enjoy your afternoon, until next time……..
