Wishing you a wonderful Memorial Day.
Blue and White Birds for Spring
I recently told you I was having health issues, and my posting might be sporadic for awhile. This is a re-post from 2014 of Spring vignettes on the buffet in our family room. You may remember I told you that while I was preparing the original post I realized that almost everything on the buffet began with the letter "B" (birds, books, blooms, blossoms, and blues and even buffet).  A spotted blue glass bird sits in front of a flower pot painted with blue blooms.

Today, I'm adding another "B" to this post. This is the Book I am reading now. The topic of the book also begins with "B". I am not recommending it. I wish I didn't have to read it, and I certainly don't want any of you to have to read it. This is the B that is causing a lot of re-posting and sporadic posting here at Bargain Decorating with Laurie. Please say a prayer for me.

Birds, Blooms, Books, Bouquets, Bookends, and Blues on a Blue Buffet. Try quickly saying that three times.   Thank you for joining me for today’s tongue twister, and thank you in advance for your prayers.

I always love your decorations. I hope you have a nice Memorial day too.
Saying lots of prayers for you. I went down the breast cancer road 2 1/2 years ago. I was never so scared in my life, but it all worked out and so far I am still in remission.
