I had a very lovely Sunday yesterday. 

We start our day with a few friends visiting for coffee, and a little Continental Breakfast. We are hosting this little get together all month.
This week I put together some Blues, a nice change from all the reds so prevalent in my home.
I used my Blue Ball Mason Jars and Brown Transferware.

I put out fresh flowers too, always a nice touch, and one potted Hydrangea plant gave me 5 generous arrangements to brighten up the breakfast table.
It was the perfect Sunday.

I also want to thank a couple of Sweet Bloggers...
Susan of Home Road 
was having a giveaway, and believe it or not, I won!!! I was thrilled! The funny thing is as I was typing this post, the doorbell rang, and it was the postman who left me my lovely gift!

 Isn't this a fab gift!!! Susan even threw in an adorable pin cushion, I'll take a photo soon, as the light is already gone with daylight savings time.
If you've not visited Susan's Blog, by all means do so! She is super talented and creates the most inspiring before and after projects, she has a knack for turning the every day cast off into something spectacular! 
I would also like to thank The Gypsea Nurse
I was the winner of her pretty necklace also, how cool is that?
You simply must pop over to visit The Gypsea Nurse
You'll be swept away into the Ocean's Waves on your visit, and get lost in her posts of gorgeous Sea Glass and treasures.
