Exciting News!

I’m excited to announce that I will be having some free Fall printables coming soon to the Peonies & Orange Blossoms community! If you are an email subscriber, soon you will find in your inboxes a link to some of my printables as an exclusive THANK YOU to my readers!

You see, I purchased an iPad Pro and have been enjoying iPad Lettering using the Procreate app!
I have been busying creating some fun things for you all! I hope you all like them when I share them with you!

Cute Kate Spade

Scrolling through the internet, I found some new and cute Kate Spade items inspired by Paris of the ’20s!!

Ma Cherie Shopping Tote

Ma Cherie Cake Bag

Ma Cherie Satchel – how cute is this!

Ma Cherie Cherry Bag – this one is my favorite but I don’t think it could hold all of my things. I have been looking for a little tiny bag for travel and walking around.

Minnie Mouse ring

OMG these earrings!! I don’t even have my ears pierced and I want to wear them! There is a matching necklace too.

John Derian Trays

Every time I see these trays made by John Derian I think to myself… oh! I am going to get one this time.  But then I get confused and can’t decide on a favorite so I have yet to buy one! 

I really like the one on this top shelf that is a garden in Europe somewhere.

And I liked the rooster ones too!

Thinking of Fall

I purchased this Fall blanket and I’m so excited to use it in my Fall decor!

Game of Thrones!

If you have not watched this past week’s episode, beware of SPOILERS




Okay, I think this may have been my favorite episode… because DRAGONS! Or, DRAGON! or rather, DROGON the DRAGON!  

Drogon is awesome! How glorious was it when Dany came riding in on Drogon and then burnt everyone to a crisp? Okay, let’s be real for a moment – there is no way that arrow would have shot the dragon, like, I’m sorry, I know Bronn is a good shot, but I don’t buy it. 

But now I realized, that basically, by the end of the season, one of the dragons will have to die and it makes me sad. Like more sad than when any other character died. RIP Joffrey. J/k, I hated Joffrey, still ain’t sad that he is gone!

Also, I’d like to think Jaime Lannister is dead but I feel that if he had died it would have been death by dragon instead of death by drowning under ridiculously heavy armor. So he lives another day.

The hardest time I am having with this season is how fast everything is suddenly moving!  We’ve had three major battles already!  

I could go on and on about Game of Thrones, leave me your thoughts!

    I love those John Derian trays too but can never bring myself to pay for them. I have one that is a knockoff and it's gorgeous.

    Game of Throwns is on my son's radar right now. He's on break from college classes so he's binge watching.

      I think the price of the trays is the main limiting factor on why I have not chosen one – I think, ok, I'm going to spend a bunch of money on ONE of these, which ONE will I choose? And then I arrive at an indecision!!

      GoT is not for everyone – lots of violence, but I love it. Really it's the only violent show I have liked!

    Love Game of Thrones! This was my favorite episode too. Well, a close second to Battle of the Bastards. I don't want Jaime Lannister to die! I like him in spite of it all. He is even more conflicted than poor Jon Snow was in the beginning. The last episode had us on the edge of our seats for sure!

    Love those trays and the handbags. I would have a hard time picking out a tray too.

      I keep debating if I liked Battle of the Bastards better or this one! I am a huge fan of Drogon…. so that makes it hard for me to pick a favorite. I do feel bad for Jaime Lannister too. I was thinking though, a bunch of my favorite characters have to die… because that's all that's left really!! I think Littlefinger is toast next episode, we shall see though…
