It just seems as though sweetness abounds around you! I love your peonies; I can almost smell the intoxicating scent! Have fun in France! I will miss hanging out with you there!

Wow, that's cool! Congrats on so many postings and SO much inspiration through the years. Hugs, Heidi


Isn't that exciting! Can't wait to celebrate my first year of blogging in October. I was late in jumping on the blogging bandwagon but soooo happy that I did!

Break out the champagne! I thank you for your 1000th post, and the 999 that preceded it....I was entertained or inspired or both, by each one.

ps...France with Kaari Meng! You are a lucky girl.


What a gorgeous peony. I'm waiting impatiently for mine to open. It's sunny here, so maybe it will be soon. Love all the little glimpses - and isn't dust a part of all of our lives? Congrats on reaching 1000 posts!

COngratulations! I love checking in to see what you have been creating. So inspiring. :D


Congratulations on 1000 posts! I picked a bouquet of peonies today. The ones that are blooming now are like yours. I have some deep claret singles that will open this weekend. Both from my Gram's garden - a piece of her lives on where ever I live through her garden. Have a beautiful weekend.

I am envious of those peonies. I must try to plant some in my garden, meager as it may be. How exciting to be approaching your 1000th post. Congrats!
