Beautiful flowers! The best part of Friday is making pizza for dinner and catching up on the week's TV shows.

Fridays are fabulous cause my daughter is home from school early and we get to hang out and have fun together. Hubby usually home earlier than usual and he make homemade pizza and we watch a movie. I love Fridays for those very reasons. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day!

Fridays are fabulous because I know that for the next two days, my Husband is off from work. This means we get to spend more time together. I am over the moon for him!

Happy Mother's day, Patricia!!

I guess it goes back to school daze... when you knew the whole, wonderful weekend was in front of you! Fridays just FEEL better than the other days of the week.
And...it's Mother's Day weekend.

Happy early Mother's Day Ms. pve! Love the flowers & illustration, and happy vibes they are sending.

I've already won something from you (still loving my Jess LC necklace), so I sadly withdraw from the drawing. Have a great one!

Really love your painting, but then again, I'm all about blue&white porcelain. Let's see...what makes THIS Friday fabulous is that it's the beginning of the first weekend that I've got absolutely no plans in months!! I relish the idea of finally get some stuff done around the house and relaxing.

I have always loved that painting of Alice and now I know where it came from. Stunning talent! My Friday was fabulous in that my blue bells were still blooming, I think because it was rather cold this week..would be great if they stayed blooming 'till our move.

Marija said...

Gorgeous work, as usual. Have you ever noticed everyone is so much nicer on Fridays?! Fabulous. Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! Marija

Happy Mother's Day Patricia! Mum was totally blown away by the fact that you are inspired by her table vignette for a new painting. She absolutely loves her painting you did of the ginger jars on her other coffee table!

Hope you are well.
