.....Aren't they very favourite flowers.....

I bought a large bunch as I wanted the house to be filled with fragrance for Mums funeral  which was  on Thursday...these were her favourites too....we had a lovely simple service with her favourite music...I just hope she approved.  The family came back here for refreshments and I know she would have loved having us all together and enjoyed catching up with everyone.
She had some beautiful arrangements and this peony was in one of them...I had to bring it home as its so gorgeous...
it's huge...about 6" and so fragrant the house smells like a florist at the moment..its a good job I don't get hay
Anyway...after a very sad day on Thursday...I had a nice quiet day yesterday in the craft room...
I've had these PaperArtsy Jofy stamps for ages and I was feeling in an inky kind of mood so out came the  DI's and pens and had a they are quite small it didn't take long to rustle up a little collection...I'm thinking of framing them altogether.
I doodled with a white pen and a gold sparkle pen here and there to give a bit of a arty feel...and added glossy accents on everything that is coloured red....
This one is my favourite
But I just love these quirky birds too...
so cute....
...I'm planning some more time in the craft room  today....with the patio doors wide open to enjoy the sun ....Hope you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy your BBQ's
