The Bee's Knees
A while back I was visiting Laura's blog 52 Flea
(Happy anniversary, 2 years of blogging Laura!)
She is a woman who needs no introduction in the blogger world of Cottage Decor, but if you've never heard of her, hop on over for a visit, you're in for a real treat.
Anyway, she was having a giveaway, and for the most part I do not enter giveaways, but the prize was amazing. It was this gorgeous silver bottle, antique, just beautiful.
It was from Southern Shop Girl the Etsy shop owned by Jennifer and Paula of Lulu's Designs, they have wonderful vintage items, and re-do the most amazing furniture.
Anyway, long story short, I won! I was so excited, and surprised! (By the way, I've actually seen these bottles online for over $200, and Pier One Imports carries a replica, with French Writing on it, if you're looking for one for yourself.)
So a Big Thank You to Laura, Paula, and Jennifer! I love it!
I wanted to fill my bottle with blossoms, and it was a bit of an adventure. I went outside to clip some from my peach tree, and forgot that we have this gorgeous tree on the side of the house and it was filled with beautiful pink blossoms! So I went happily clipping away, I saw a little Bee, no biggie, I can share my blossoms. Unable to reach I went around to the other side, and clipped another branch..."What's that noise?" I thought, "Bees!" lots and lots of them! "Bees everywhere!" I remained calm, as I know if you leave them "bee" they'll leave you "bee" ;) For What To Do If You Encounter A Swarm Or Colony Of Bees Click Here
Anyway, I did manage to get out of there with enough pretty blooms to fill my bottle.
And I think...
It is the...Bee's Knees ;)
Oh, the table...You want to know about the table? It's old, wicker, and wood, half round as you can see, and charming, I think, especially, so being as it was under $5. xxx tami
p.s. Upon meeting Paula and Jennifer, they've since become one of my first Sponsors. I highly suggest you visit their blog and shop, you won't be disappointed.
P.S.S. I would like to thank the following ladies for recently featuring or linking up my blog on theirs, it's very much appreciated, girls!
