A pretty table

I was sitting reading the newspaper at the dining table on the weekend and couldn't help myself, I had to get out the camera and take some snaps of the table setting.

The light was so nice and luckily I had borrowed the DSLR from work again.

Pretty daffodils...

Gorgeously fragrant freesias from my garden...

There's those pretty Dinosaur Designs vases...

I love a pretty mixed up combination of prints with flowers.

I know it was a couple of days ago now, but how disappointing was The Block for all the contestants? All that hard work, blood, sweat and tears and the contestants walked away with little (apart from Polly and Waz).
Didn't they all look gorgeous at the auction? I'm sure they'll all go on to do great things, they were such a likeable bunch. My biggest question is what will I watch on tv now?? It's a disaster.
I'll be back in a couple of days with a very special birthday here at Molly's Maison.
Someone's turning 7 years old!


  1. Love the spring flowers and all the different blue hues! Days like today almost make me believe spring is here! Hope you're having a good week, can't wait to see the birthday celebrations!

  2. Oh I love those dinosaur design vases! Agree about the block, what a let down! Abbey x
