  1. Lots of fun again this week. Happy Belated Mother's Day to all.

  2. Love your creations! It's official, I've fizzled out. I have no energy left to go to the store for planning or get out of my self-imposed bed rest to create much of anything.

    However, we continue to follow along with The Garden of the Good Shepherd book and are thankful for the parties we did have.

    Keep inspiring!

  3. It just didn't happen this week =( But I hope to be back next week =)

  4. We did make it this week, albeit a bit late, and I have promised my kids to try to catch up on the one we missed. We'll see how that goes.

  5. I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's day and thanks for sharing your parties, they look great.

  6. Another great garden party this week! Thanks ladies! Happy Mother's Day!

  7. As always, we really enjoyed this week! I can't believe we're already onto week 6!! I think my kids will be very sad to see this come to an end.

  8. I'm a bit tardy...sorry.

    The timing of the Gardeners Paradise was great. This was a lovely week. Now, it is way past my bed time but I wanted to get this post out b4 tomorrow.

    God bless everyone!
