Getting Ready

We have some good friends visiting this weekend.  I usually buy a bouquet of flowers for the guest room.  Today I bought a pot of daffodils instead.


I have had this old copper pot for years.  I love the way it looks with the daffodils.


I couldn't resist buying some flowers for my bedroom too.  For me, roses.

I also added some flowers to my new header - for all of you~after all you are my guests too!!

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.
Welcome Home,
Penny

Penny, the daffodils are beautiful. Isn't it amazing? Spring is starting to show up slowly. And I am so envious :) of your julep cup. Makes your roses pop. I love buying flowers for my bedroom too. Enjoy your friends' visit!

Penny, what a special treat for your guests and for yourself. I'm so excited, my daffodils are beginning to bloom in my garden. I'm so ready for spring.
Good for you for also adding the beautiful red roses on your bedside table. Smiled to see RED ON RED. Fabulous book! ~ Sarah

A nice touch of spring! I see you have lost some weight! Aren't you brave having it on your sidebar, I guess that shows your level of commitment. Keep it up!

Lovely! Both the new Header, and inside your house.

Please be so happy, that you can bring flowers into your home. We can not. Because they cause allergy flare-ups. -sigh-

Even in summer, we can't bring the beautiful Old Roses or other flowers, which my husband grows, into the house. Same reason. -sigh-

I like to point out to people, how lucky they ARE, to be able to do this brightening thing... About which they probably don't think much. Other than for the joy it brings. Not-everyone-can! -pouttttttt- :-)

Gentle hugs...

Vee said...

Oh yes! Those daffodils do look great in that container. Your guests will so appreciate the touch of spring.

What a beautiful combination Penny! I love old copper and have several pieces... I'll be purchasing some mini daffodils this spring for a special touch... thanks for the great idea!!
Have a grand weekend! Hugs, Sherry

We are venturing out today. I plan to buy a fresh pot of flowers for the copper pot on the foyer table.

Your flowers are beautiful and I love the copper.

Carey said...

Very pretty. Your guests are going to enjoy those. Have a great time!

Sorry Penny I deleted my comment by mistake. Like I was saying I just love daffodils and they look beautiful in that copper bowl. Enjoy your weekend with your friends, Martina

I've been seeing hyacynths and daffodils in the grocery stores lately and really need to buy a pot to give me some hope that spring is, indeed, on the way!! Your header looks so fresh and pretty, too, Penny. Love that copper pot- it's the perfect spot for your flowers. :-)

Your header is beautiful and I love the flowers in your rooms. Such a small touch to make someone feel special.

WendyBee said...

I am all giddy, enjoying your flowery photos. So fresh and uplifting. And I love that you put the daffodils in that happy, shiny copper pot! So lovely...your guests will no doubt feel very welcome.

Penny said...

I love your new Spring header Penny. Your guests are lucky to have such a pretty sight in their bedroom. Love the roses in the Julep cup. I have three of them and like to line them up on the table with roses just like you have done. Congrats on the weight loss. We are doing the same and I am down 7 pounds. My goal is 15 pounds. Guess when I come back and we go out to lunch we will have to order salad. But frankly I am enjoying eating better.

Hugs, Penny

Donna said...

Have a great weekend!

Hi Penny, I have also been buying flowers while patiently waiting for Spring. Your new header is beautiful.

I noticed your new spring header right away. Perfect for helping us all with our spring fever. Beautiful!
Your guests are going to love the cheery daffodils. And I'm so happy you got the roses for yourself...we tend to forget to address our own spirits. Wonderful!
It is very chilly here in Southern California...snow all around us.
Have a lovely time with your guests.

March is my birthday month, so daffodils have always been my favorites!!! My first daffodil opened yesterday. I can't wait to be able to pick bouquets to use in the house. Yours look so sweet in that copper pot. Glad your diet is going well. And I hope you have had a great weekend with your friends. Fresh flowers are such a lift, especially this time of year as we all anxiously await the arrival of spring! Love & blessings from NC!

Jojo said...

Spring has arrived at your blog and it makes me so happy!!!!

There are daffodils blooming in my back yard...and what a sight they make when I peek out there.

Sooo glad you like the boots!

Your guests must love you Penny - and love staying w/ you!! I love that copper pot idea. I like to put flowers in the room for my guests too. Lately I've been buying flowers to keep on my desk at work to get in the "spring" mood.
