Peonies, Mom's Birthday & Treasures


Middle sister gave these beautiful peonies to Mom for her birthday. I just had to take a photo.


Her is the Birthday girl! Everyone was here, 23 of us and we had a photographer take a family photo. We also had champagne. Yes, that is a Chocolate Raspberry Diva cake with buttercream frosting! Pretty sure Mom had a good time and enjoyed her party.


A few years ago we bought over 100 vintage radios. I was digging around and found this cute little one that is staying here, for now. It is a tube radio and only gets AM.


Decided to put most of my bluebird plates on this little bookcase, for now :)

My grandgirl is coming over tomorrow and we are going to get the family room clutter free! I know that I have said that MANY times before....this is our summer project. She wanted to make some money this summer, so this works out for both of us.

I appreciate your kind, sweet comments about my new deck!
warmly,
deb

Oh your Mom looks so happy what a great picture! I am so glad you did not come to the Polka Dot Flea this year! Oh Deb it is so sad here, so many vigils, funerals, signs on every corner...the town has so come together..it just warms my heart! I will get pictures up of the Flea because I know people love to see them and I will love to share them.
