On Saturday, I was supposed to post the scallop and chorizo recipe I served at the Thursday night “Dirty Book Club”. I forgot – but no one seemed to notice. No harm, no foul. Since you didn’t appear to be waiting with bated breath, how about I delay it a tiny bit longer and tell you all about my pretty flowers and trophies?
Above is a photo of the flowers I gave to Dave for Father’s Day. I was about to arrange them in regular old vases, when I remembered that I had just seen peonies and other flowers in trophies at the gorgeous home of my friend, Shelia. Yes, trophies, so much more manly than vases. Especially when you consider that Dave won the golf tournament he played in over the weekend! I wish they gave out trophies at the darn club, but I think he’ll just get club or store credit. That sucks, trophies are way cooler!
The two tall trophies hold peonies and sunflowers from Trader Joe’s. They are replicas of vintage trophies. I bought them online at Antique Farm House.
If they are offered for sale again, I’m going to get at least one more – OK probably two – can’t help it, I love them!
The small loving cup is a true antique and holds dahlias and lavender sprigs from my garden.
Oh, and it was exactly one year ago today that my baby girl moved to San Francisco. Time Does Fly! I miss her dearly but am so excited because I just booked tickets for Connor and I to fly off and visit her in just six short weeks!!! OK, no more delaying… it is recipe time…
