~White Wednesday # 102~

I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing holiday weekend. I was able to get out in my yard for a few hours yesterday between rain showers to get some plants that I've bought planted, but still have lots to do. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers and I picked up a few new ones to add to my garden. One of them has this beautiful white bloom with just a touch of pink. The new ones I just bought have huge buds and are starting to bloom already, but all of my original ones are still tiny buds due to this cold and wet weather we've been having. Hopefully I'll have many more to bring inside to enjoy. I placed them in a white pitcher on my cupboard in an area in my kitchen that I've been changin up. Can't wait to share the whole room. Enjoy! xoxo K.

I will be choosing a blog each week to feature someone who has linked up with something that has caught me eye. I'm already afraid this is going to be harder than I thought because everyone shares such lovely whites every week. This week I was drawn to these fabulous totes that Sharon made and has for sale(I think I might need one of these guys). Wouldn't this be fun to take to the flea market to fill up with treasures? Please take a moment to stop by Sharon's blog and check out what else she's been up to.

I also want to thank Sandi for making and sending me this lovely lavender filled sachet. I could smell the aroma as soon as I opened my mailbox...heavenly. It was wrapped to lovely and I really appreciate your thoughtfulness Sandi. Thank you:-)

  4. Happy WW Kathleen
    Your flowers are so beautiful, But you know I haven't the green thumb you have so I just have to admire how lovely your garden is.

    It is another beautifully cool day here and I love it. Sad that the rest of the country has rain but it is giving us a very unusually cool season.
    Had to go check out Sharon's purses, I love how soft and giving they look. Thanks for sharing someone new for me.

  12. LOVE those peonies Kathleen! They are my favorite flower as well, but I sure have a hard time growing them. I do have some with buds on now, but they are deep pink and I don't know if my light pink ones survived. :(

    I love those totes too!! I thought the same thing when I saw them...I need one! Lol

    You are most welcome for the sachet Kathleen...I enjoyed making it for you.
    Happy WW!

    xoxo laurie

  19. your wonderful flowers look like handmade candy to me~ thin ruffles and lovely colors!


  20. As always, I love your flowers! I was just out front in my garden this afternoon working in it. I don't have a huge garden but its enough to keep me busy. Hope you had a great Memorial Week-end with your family. I worked with my family so although it probably wasn't as much, at least we had time together, so to speak!

    Take care, Sue

  21. Oh - I love peonies too! I've had some plants for sev. years now - and still can't get them to bloom. They're not getting enough sun I guess. Love how the buds are pink before they open to white!

  22. Kathleen,
    Thanks for another great week!

  34. I would absolutely be in Heaven if I could pick fresh Peonies from the Garden! They are one of my fav Flowers and you can NEVER find them in the Flower Shops here... guess they don't grow in Desert regions? *Boo Hoo*

    Blessings to you and I will let you know how it all went
