we gots peonies!

Remember how we gots grass? The grass is dead, but now we gots peonies, y’all! One of the cool things about moving in the dead of winter is the fun of seeing what comes up at your house in the spring. I died that we have these on the side of our house!may 2010 038 1may 2010 030 1



Look at them go to town even amidst the weeds…may 2010 071 1I had to bring some in and try it on the $40 craigslist dresser I brought into the entryway. I don’t think I’m going to paint this one..I actually love the wood. The handles and the keyholes are actually what made my heart kind of stop for a second though…may 2010 003 1

It makes me want to get married in May just so I can have peonies at my wedding…{no, there’s no funny business going on here…I mean marry the same man all over again…except with peonies this time}
Happy Thursday~

  8. Peonies are one of my favourites and one of the few things I love about our house (my husband bought the place before we were married). We have four mature plants and I added two more new ones this year!

    That dresser is fantastic!

  9. What a beautiful piece of furniture! I'm excited that craigslist is in Argentina but it hasn't quite made it to the interior yet. 99% of what's offered is in the greater Buenos Aires area which is a looooooong 9 hours from us :-(
    Definitely leave it alone; it has CHARACTER!
    Lovely, lovely flowers. *envy* 'cause it's late fall and cold here.

  10. Beautiful peonies! In Germany they are called "Pfingst Rosen"-- Pentecost roses because they bloom for Pentecost- enjoy!

  12. That piece of furniture is fabulous. I don't know how you girls find such good stuff on Craigslist. I go on there and just look and look. I guess there is a method to the madness that I haven't figured out.

  15. I'm so glad you decided not to paint that dresser. I'm usually not a huge fan of stained wood either but that patina is gorgeous and the handles are too. And the flowers, what a nice surprise! We just bought a new house but so far nothings coming up except weeds and poisin ivy!
    We do have some nice forsythia bushes though so I won't complain :)

  25. OH, that dresser is to die for - and at that price!!

    My peonies were gorgeous a few weeks ago. They are done for the season now. When they were bloomin', I cut them and put them in vases all over the house. It was gorgeous :)

    Now, I'm waiting for my fav - shasta daisies to bloom :)
