Two of My Favorite Things

My peonies have bloomed and were crying out for a new vase. So naturally I obliged. We have a new Value Village here in town but I just haven't been going in much. Well today I stopped in only to find this beautiful old trophy vase that weighs a ton. Too bad it wasn't solid sterling silver. (I discovered the bottom has concrete inside!) To me it's still a beauty and it polished up really well. The peonies were thrilled with their new home!

My house at this time is again peppered with ants! YUCK! I hope that your peony arrangement is out in the sunroom because aren't they also loaded with ants? Makes me feel like a messy housekeeper-upper...YUCKY ANTS! YHB

Your flowers are gorgeous~I remember when I was a little girl,a hundred years ago, my grandmother had several hedge rows of peonies~what a sight when they were in bloom~lucky you to have these!

My peonies have yet to bloom. I have three of them. I severely injured one by accidentally spraying it with weed and feed. It looks like it has some weird affliction. Anyway! Yours are beautiful and the "ValooVihlage" find is awesome!
