Pink Peonies!

Happy Friday loves! OMGoodness am I glad it's Friday...I will not go over the gory details, but it has been one crazy week! I am ready to wind down this weekend and spend some much needed QT with the fiance. 

I do not have a Friday cocktail prepared for you today {as mentioned above, this week has escaped me}, however, I DO have some pretty photos of my Coral Charm peonies that I planted in front of our house this spring. I have been meaning to edit them for weeks and finally got around to it last night. I am pretty impressed with some of the shots I captured. There are a few from when they were still planted and newly bloomed. They were the prettiest coral / fuchsia / hot pink color! Then, once I picked them and placed in the gold mason, they turned a soft, pale pink. I will definitely be purchasing a few more peony plants in the future.

Can you believe they were the same flowers? Such a beautiful color transformation!

Flowers + Photography

I have found 2 new loves in my life...Flowers and Photography! I wanted to share with you a few photos I took of a pink and white carnation bouquet I created recently. There is something so simple and pretty about a bunch of fluffy carnations...

I found these pretties at the grocery store and started arranging them in a vase. I realized how pretty they would be as a bouquet so I gave it a try! I grabbed some pretty pink tulle and tied the stems together and boom! Pretty little pink fluffy carnation bouquet success!
 
I also took some snap shots of my new Etsy shop item using the pretty bouquet as a backdrop.
