Lovely Pink Tulips!

Today after work I had to stop by Harris Teeter to pick up a few things and guess what greeted me at the door-PINK TULIPS! They just looked so lovely and I just couldn't leave them sitting there. I snatched up 2 bunches and brought them home. I got out my green Depression glass vase and proceeded to arrangement them. Here is the results:


I put the vase of Pink Tulips on my sideboard next to my violet tea set.





Tulips always put a smile on my face and I hope they made you smile too!

I bought tulips a few days ago... they are so cheery. Yours are a very pretty pink!

It's been snowing and blizzardy a few days... no sign of let up, so tulips are a real soul-treat around here!

Your blog looks so spring like -- loved it!

Those tulips are so fantastic looking in that vase - soooo jealous! I have to laugh at the mention of "violets" today, we were antiquing and saw a cross stitch with violets on it...but it said "Listen to the Violets"
(I wispered to Karrie...."what are they saying" - we chuckled...and here I am giggling again with you Sherri!
Have a great day!

I love tulips, but daffodils are my all time favorites. I guess because they always are blooming for my birthday in March. And they remind me so much of spring. I have hundreds of daffodils that bloom in my yard! A few have already started blooming. Thanks for sharing your beautiful tulips. Love & blessings from NC!

I love tulips! I was thinking this morning about stopping by and picking up some flowers; my roses (bought last week) are ready for the trash, and I love having the cheerfulness of fresh flowers.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
