Hello my friends!!!
*
Welcome to the 104th run of "Sunday Favorites"
*
I hope that you're having a wonderful weekend!  Wow...it seems like "ages" since I have hosted a Sunday Favorites party!  As you know...my dear friend Gloria and her husband Len were here visiting last week... so I decided to cancel last weeks Sunday Favorites party.  Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.  Gloria and I had a fabulous time visiting! 
*
Summer is a busy, busy time for many of us!  It is the busiest time of the year for my family.  Honey has four weeks of vacation time that he takes during the summer.  So we are always off on a trip or just busy taking care of summer projects.  We are planning a camping trip to the mountains soon and I can hardly wait.  Camping in the Rocky Mountains is one of my favorite things to do!
*
Well dear friends, I hope that your summer has been a good one thus far.  Today for Sunday Favorites, I thought I would share a post from June 2010.  I hope that you enjoy!
* 
Have a super Sunday!!!

Just a little note: Sunday Favorites Criteria
* 
When I first started the Sunday Favorites meme, my initial thought was to offer a solution for getting a post out on the weekend without having to spend alot of time doing so...weekends are just a busy time for most of us! Copying and pasting a previous post is so quick and easy. Not only is this a quick and easy solution to the busy weekends, but it's also an opportunity to dig back into our blog archives and share a favorite "past" post once again! Many of us spend alot of time and effort creating a post and it just seems a shame that it is viewed only once and then forgotten about!
* 
I would like to reiterate that Sunday Favorites is a meme about sharing or revisiting a post from the PAST!
* 
Thank you!!!

Hello my friends...I hope you're having a marvelous Monday!
**
I have another busy week ahead. Honey is home for another vacation week...this week! I have sooo many things that I would like to get done...and need to get done, however I never really get anything accomplished when honey is home (just sayin')! Hehe!
*
I did go and pick a large bouquet of Colorado wildflowers to make a pretty centerpiece for my dining room table this weekend...thought I would share it with you today. These beautiful lavender/purple wildflowers are growing everywhere on our property. I think they are sooo pretty and I have found that they last a long time after cutting them and bringing them inside. The small budded white flowers remind me a bit of baby's breath...another wildflower growing on our property. They make for a pretty bouquet...don't you think?
*
*Wildflowers and a Simple Tabletop Vignette...
*
*
A large white ironstone pitcher so sweetly holds the wildflower bouquet.
*
I dug out an old sagey green crockware pitcher and placed it under my large cloche that is sitting atop a glass pedestal cake plate. Simple...but beautiful!
**
*
A close-up shot of the pretty wildflowers. I love how the light from the window is shining on them...showcasing the beauty of a simple wildflower bouquet!!!
*
*
*
*
Teacups Under Glass...
*
*On the opposite end of the table...another cloche. A white ironstone teacup and a couple of olive green transferware teacups are stacked and showcased "under glass"! Ahhh...simplicity...there is much to be said for it!!! A couple of embroidered "spring green" luncheon napkins...spoons...and one green apple share the spotlight...all placed upon a pretty lacy metal charger plate!
*
*And...Voila!...summer wildflowers and a simple tabletop vignette for my dining room table!!! I hope you enjoyed!!!
*
*
I am joining in Tabletop Tuesday....*
