Beautiful Weekend Bouquets



Hello Everyone!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.I enjoyed some time out with two of my girls today- a lovely lunch and a peek around some shops in town.


             In the winter I love to buy some flowers for bouquets around the house.
                         I splurged a bit this week as we had a family dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday.
                                                  I like the vintage look.
Bouquets really dress up the table.

                                                 Carnations,roses and tulips make me happy!




                                I love my aqua tub that I found at a local thrift shop for $3. I know I will find lots of uses for it.
                           Of course, I enjoyed taking photos of them too!
               We have had some cold weather the past few days but I heard we might get showers tomorrow with milder temps. I am looking forward to some good skating weather as I have my heart set on a family skate on our pond sometime soon -but I must be patient!

I am joining The Rose Garden in Malevik for Show-Off Saturday,

And

The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.

 Hope you enjoy a lovely weekend.
Carolyn

Hello Carolyn, What a gorgeous post, but I must say, those white roses in the white pitcher just caught my breath for a second. You captured perfect purity. I love it.

My Bd has been this past week also and I have been 'treated' time and time again. My cup of blessings is overflowing. How exciting it must be to skate on your pond. Skating is something I was never privileged to experience. It sounds wonderful and then some! Wishing you a blessed Sunday....Maggie Ann

Gorgeous photos, as always Carolyn. We had similar days. I went to lunch with my daughter followed by shopping the local boutiques. I bought white tulips and stuck them in an ironstone pitcher. I love your pinks and the aqua tub is pretty! What a bargain.

Yes, we really are in need of flowers here in Canada. I miss seeing them. I bought some daisies just to enjoy for a few days. Your post is beautiful. Deb

I love the soft pinks and aqua Carolyn. Beautiful photos. Maybe the cold weather next week will freeze the pond up well for skating. Blessings, Pamela

The touch of flowers certainly does brighten things in the midst of winter. Your gardens brighten things all summer long.

Beautiful colors, and over here it's also very cold minus -5 but the wind is so heavy the it feels like minus - 14. We stay inside it is to cold if you have nothing to do outside stay inside its the best thing you can do. I hope for you the weather is going better so you can ice skating.
Greetings Petra.
