Hope everyone had a nice long enjoyable Labor Day weekend!




The weather was perfect and we spent time working in the yard and garden, went to my sister's for a cook-out and celebrated our son-in-law's birthday. Great weekend! Fun with family and relaxing too.

Yesterday I painted a handmade wooden tray (that Galen made in the shop) and did this one with peonies. Quite a few people have been interested in the peony trays so here is another one that will be listed in my etsy shop.





It's painted a mustard color with pink and white peonies and made to look old
~ a vintage or antique look ~




These wooden trays are great for decorating....
or use them what they're meant for ~ serving!
