Just Messing Around!

My Husband! sigh! He's a Keeper!

My birthday is not for another month and a half. But, because he has the gift of giving and I have the gift of receiving (he he he) ... The receiving has already started!
One of the things that I have been wanting is a tripod. Low and behold when I came home for lunch on Thursday...
THERE IT WAS!
SURPRISE!

So, today, I have been messing around with it and learning all the
advantages of having awesome tools.
Thank you, Honey!

Did you guys just love the cover of the last Victoria Magazine? Well! I did! So much so that I set up a little vignette in my dinning room to try and "recreate" the moment. Below is my best effort.

It just reminds me of tea on a summer afternoon.

I even loved the little basket full of cherries so much that I put it under my cloche in the kitchen area. I do get carried away with themes. (LOL)

Oh! The fun we have in Blogland!

Speaking of fun and Blogland...BIG thank yous to everyone that joined in Fresh-Cut Friday! I loved going to visit every single beautiful post. Did anyone else notice how pretty all of the thumbnails looked on the page? What fun!

If you missed out, don't fret! I will be hosting it again every first Friday of the month. So there will be lots of opportunity to buy flowers and take pictures. The next one will be October 1st.


Thanks for popping by on the holiday weekend!

I love it Liz! Your version is so pretty with all your gorgeous blue and white. That issue I think has been my favorite this year! Inside and out!

I think yours looks better than the Victoria spread.

BTW I was perusing a Victoria a the supermarket and put it back down because I really get the best inspiration from blogs!!
