Peony Pleasure

*I* was the lucky winner of Coralie's One World, One Heart giveaway on her beautiful blog, Vintage Cottage Home.

I won these lovely napkins, a set of four, featuring a favorite bloom of mine, peonies. They arrived yesterday and it was like Christmas in February!

Do you think the flowers are meant to be wild roses?

I think they look like peonies. And, since peonies have been my favorite for the last couple of years, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!


Thank you Coralie, from the bottom of my heart!

P.S. The broken china mosaic plate in the last photo was done by my son when he was 10. I love his sense of color!
