French bread on Friday... lovely gifts, my little corner, and a few thank you notes!

  hello to friends old and new!

it's  F R I D A Y!  ...and most of us are on our way to a three day!

this morning i took a few snaps of my little corner!

  it's located in our dining room, right next to the farm table.

(as many of you know, to me, this is the heart of our little place

here on 34th street.)

my (writing and blogging) desk has a new look,  a bit of a French flavor!

the linen café pin board,

 the galvanized two tier tray,

and the mercury glass vase were Mother's Day 

gifts from Chrislyn, Jason and the Grands!  

i snipped two rain soaked Calla Lilies this morning!

( if you look close, you may see a raindrop or two.)

the lilies are a perfect choice for my sleek new mercury vase.

 the two tier tray holds my favorite pens, stamps,

 twine, labels, scissors, readers, notes, envelopes, my camera and 

some lavender sachets. everything is so nicely contained, and

an easy move to the farm table when i use the desk for,

correspondence, paying bills, pinning and blogging! 

the Calla Lilies were purchased  at Costco!   yes...Costco!

Mr D and i planted two of them in beautiful large glazed

earthenware pots on our anniversary. 

i haven't framed the Spring release poster. i rather like it

displayed on the desk, for the time being.

...and speaking of timewhen permitted, here is where i have been 

for the past week, receiving so very many virtual gifts.

thank you, Anita!  you were a most gracious and amazing hostess!

for me, the journey will never end!  

thank you to everyone who visited my dream shop, "fille de fleur", 

and to those who offered such lovely wishes for our anniversary!

thank you to Chrislyn, Jason and the Grands! 

happy birthday to my son, Jay, a gift of life and love, and laughter!

to echo many of my blog guests... here's to 40 more, Mr D!

what a week it has been!

my corner and my heart are flourished "Fleurished"...




    I hope you saw my response on your last post in response to you kind comment! And it's so lovely to see your corner where you create and connect. Many happy hugs to you and again, thank you for all the loveliness you have spread via the France party!!! Anita

  3. Your corner is sweet. I love that vase....I have just got to get myself some mercury glass. Enjoy your nice long weekend. xoxo,Susie

  4. Oh, I absolutely love your corner, Lynne, and it was my pleasure to visit with you during Anita's party. So much inspiration again this year. I have suddenly become a master at baking macarons, all thanks to one very special gathering.
    Fun stopping by for French bread this Friday. :)
    And I love your galvanized tray.
    Much love.
