~ Pretty Peonies ~

Hi friends! :)
I thought I would share with you a few photos of some pretty pink peonies I bought at the market today

Peonies are one of my favourite flowers

I love the touch of colour they add to my white decor
This white enamel pitcher is from IKEA and I LOVE using it for fresh flowers :)

Even my little Claire wanted to check out the pretty peonies! ;)

~ I hope you had a wonderful weekend friends ~

Your photos always make me smile! They are so lovely. The pitcher is perfect for the peonies. They don't grow here in the desert so I really enjoy seeing photos of them. I love your kitty!

Bonjour Rachel & Claire - thank you for sharing the delights of your home in this post.

Will keep my eye open for a similar Ikea pitcher - truly classic lines and you're so right, perfect for displaying long stemmed flowers.

Happy day!

I love your peonies. Mine have a ways to go, they won't be blooming for another 2 or 3 weeks. When my peonies bloom it always rains!!!!
Have a day!

Rachel they look gorgeous!
I love peonies too and are my favourite bloom!
They have a softness, and gentleness that I adore.
I have an enamel white pitcher from Ikea too..they were sold out of the bigger one, so I bought the smaller one (medium size) and I love it too!
I have dried lavender in mine.
Claire does look like she is admiring them for sure...can't say I blame her! :)
