Beautiful Mom's Day Weekend

Yes, I got my Mother's Day gifts last weekend (and I'm still SO excited about them!!!), but this was a great weekend, too.

We bought and planted flowers in the planters by the front door:

I have a Stella D'Oro Daylily

that I planted last year. It did very well and I really liked it, so I decided to try another version of daylily in the planters across the walkway from it:

These are supposed to be a pink-purple color. Can't wait to see them bloom!

Hubby bought lots of mulch and did a lot of work in the backyard:

He also purchased flowers and planted our windowboxes:

A very sweet man- friend of hubby's- gave me flowers for Mother's Day:

My favorite flower is daisies, and I love the purple, too- so these are really great! Thanks, again Jay!

Hubby reminded me that I wasn't getting a gift from him this weekend because I got my bike and the trailer last weekend. I remembered, and it didn't bother me at all. I think we had a great weekend.

Oh- and I treated myself to a yard of a fabric that I've been drooling over. I really wanted this with a blue or green background, but I guess it's been selling out all over the place- red was my only option. If this came with a purple background, I'd buy it in a second- I want it in my kitchen! As it is, I'm considering re-painting my purple kitchen just so I can use this fabric because I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!

Mary Engelbreit rocks.


  1. Your place looks wonderful. I am envious. As for the flowers. You are welcome it was my pleasure - but I am really not all that sweet (lol) Glad you liked them. j

  2. Blondie -
    My local shop has the ME fabrics. You can check them out at and order online, or let me know if you want me to swing by and pick some up for you.

  3. Thanks, John! I spent well over an hour on their website last night... I found a couple of fabrics that I really liked! (Great prices, too- I'm jealous.)


Blondie spoke... now you speak.

It's nice taking turns.

Have a great day!
