Picking Flowers...And Mowing

This weekend much of our time was spent picking flowers....
like peonies from my garden...
they smell heavenly...

and admiring my clematis vines....


sittin' on our porch...

singing to the girls...

Oh...and mowing.

Remember when I mentioned I like mowing in this post, well, it's all cuz Lulu makes mowing so much fun. Thanks Lulu!

And how was your weekend?

Memorial Day

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

A Little TLC

Sometimes, we all need a little TLC....so Friday....I got me some.
My friend Sue and I headed out early Friday morning to go to TLC {Treasures Lovingly Created}. It's the most wonderful place out in the country....

where flowers are abound...

and darling sheds and buildings dot the landscape.

They specialize in dried floral arrangements.

And the shop itself was bursting with gorgeous displays.

Their dried flowers are simply divine...like the photo above {and below} they retain all their color and look so fresh...

you have to touch them to see if they're really dried.

Oh....and see this darling chandelier, it's made from an old piece of fence and hung from a rusty old pulley...love this!

The chandelier hung in this beautiful Pergola that was full of country charm. The Pergola itself, was constructed of wooden beams that were the only parts remaining of the barn that once stood here....recycling at it's best!

TLC is located at:
