As the sun beamed through the window, they started to open up in minutes. I just love how frilly they are! Have any of you ever grown peonies? I think I'm in love with them. I would love to grow some. If you have any advise, please let me know!
Besides Claudia's inspiration, this is the other inspiration for the splurge-- these vintage table cloths. Don't you love the giant pompom trim? I do, but I've always felt it needed some kind of overlay, so when I was out shopping in the foothills this weekend I found this wonderful vintage tablecloth. I laid them out on the table, and looked around the house for something to put in the middle of the table. I think the peonies are perfect!
Okay, do these look like real cupcakes or what? (Okay, you'd never see a real cupcake shrink wrapped, but you know what I mean!) These arrived yesterday-- a wonderful surprise from my wonderful aunt, Alice! These cupcakes are actually bath fizzies-- they're amazing! I think they may be almost too cute to use... almost. It was so fun to receive such a random, sweet, happy surprise in the mail. Thank you so much, my dear Auntie Alice!
