Nothing says Summer like peonies and fresh strawberries! I've been indulging in our locally grown strawberries for the past week and just can't get enough. We're fortunate to not only have a large Farmer's Market every Saturday but also several farms nearby where I can buy fresh berries during the week. Right now, I'm enjoying them on my cereal for breakfast, with yoghurt at lunch and a dish with cream at dinner - and the occasional indulgence of strawberry shortcake!
My white peonies are just about finished. There's just a few more flowers left but they've been oh so beautiful this year! I placed them in a vintage blue and white Mason pitcher and paired them with some of my blue and white transfer ware. Red, white and blue is such a fresh combination for Summer!
The pitcher has a small chip on the bottom which I think only adds to it's charm!
Were having a garage sale this Saturday. This falls into the "what was I thinking?" category but at the time, it seemed like a good idea. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and we'll be able to re-home some of the "stuff" that we no longer want or need. In the meantime, there's a lot of work to be done!
Enjoy this lovely first week of Summer!
