My Flower Shop

Hello everyone, 
I really want to go to France and see the beautiful flower markets in Provence. But, as you know I can't go just yet. ~$$$$~ I'm reading books and dreaming a lot about the places I want to visit.  As you know or if you are new to my blog I dream up a fantasy and create the place in my own back yard. 
This is my Flower Shop @ My Cozy Corner
I have a french bucket full of 'Dream Weaver' 
and a vintage crock with 'Summer Kiss'  
A bouquet of beautiful 'St Patrick'
Peonies from my mother's plant 
'Lavender' 'White Eden' 'Miss All American Beauty' in the little pitcher.
'Crystalline' and 'Iceberg' in another french bucket
Dried Lavender by the bunch in my flower basket
The smell is heavenly
I painted my little table in a soft Sea Foam Green
The yellow yarrow is blooming like crazy. 
Red Roses are for Sale
'Don Juan' 'Love's Promise' 'Ingrid Bergman'
"What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."
-William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

 'Peony' 'The Reeve' 'Tiffany' 
The vase is a half-gallon canning jar from our canning supply shelf. 
Oh. it would be so lovely to have a Flower Shop and smile as happy faces pick the flowers to carry home.

Thank you for visiting
My Flower Shop today.
I hope you have found a few favorites to take home.

  3. That's a lovely dream-come-to-life....thank you for sharing your creativity. It's a sweet little shop!

  4. Your little flower shop is lovely! Very creative and beautiful with all the pretty flowers. Have a happy week ahead!

  5. Betty, your flower shop is fabulous! Beautiful images!

  6. Impressive Betty! Beautiful collection of precious blooms. Travelling is such wonderful experience, isn't it

  7. There are lots of places I'd like to visit too but home is the best place of all. The way you've created this is just spectacular!

  8. Your flower shop is absolutely fantastic. So many beautiful flowers in different colours. Your photos brightened my day:)

  9. I'm not sure France has all that much on you. Those are some mighty gorgeous blooms. I love that you recreate the dreams in your own backyard. What a great idea. What I wouldn't do to have peonies! They don't like Florida soil so much though, from what I hear. I enjoyed yours though.


    I retire in exactly 1 month- my husband is counting the days, but I am too busy at school to count down.

    Anyway. my husband planned a retirement party for me, contacted the caterer, and is getting all the invitations out. I have been thinking about what to use for decorations and now you gave me the perfect idea. I will create a French flower market look.

    I have one month to be thinking about exactly how it will look and make 6 more pillows for the garden fire pit!

  11. Hi Betty,

    Your French flower shop, collated in a collage, could be a work of art on canvas! Gorgeous - I'm partial to peonies, as they are a childhood favourite of mine but cannot grow them here in these TOO hot, Mediterranean temps! Visiting via Kathy's.

  15. Looks like you a 'bit of heaven' right where you are ~ Beautiful photography of your flower shop for ODW ^_^

  16. Hello from Outdoor Wednesday. Your flowers are beautiful - so colourful. My sister in law used to be a florist and she was so talented at putting just the right combinations of blooms together. Great photos too.

  17. Who needs France when you have flowers like yours? I am new from southern charm! I would love for you to check out my blog and follow me back! Have a great day,Nicole

  18. A lovely place to enjoy the day! Your flowers are gorgeous and so is the beautiful setting! (visting from Fishtail Cottage Garden Party). New Follower :) xoxo

  19. Your Flower Shop is the prettiest I've ever seen. I would love for you to share at Simple & Sweet Fridays. You would inspire everyone!


  20. Happy Pink Saturday. Your flowers are so pretty. One day you will go to Paris and walk around and think of your pretty flowers and say "they are just as beautiful". Grace

  21. I traveled a lot in my young days, but now it is only in dreams.

  22. Wow! These are beautiful flowers! I live the smell of flower shops! and I love how colorful they all are! I also found you on How Sweet The Sound Linky party. I hope you can come visit me :D

  23. How much fun is this! You definitely captured the feel of a french flower market! Your buckets are wonderful, did you paint them? I love the soft pastel colors with the bright fresh flowers and the cozy, inviting chairs...where do you live exactly because I'd like to come over! Ha! Beautiful,

  24. What gorgeous roses and peonys! Mine are just buds and I am holding my breath with anticipation. Your flower shop is adorable. I have considered having one myself. What therapy it would be to be surrounded by such beauty each day. Have a wonderful day!

  25. I would say you've done pretty well setting up shop. Flower markets in Europe may be bigger but your small one is no less attractive.

  26. How enchanting! I am inspired! Your flowers are just gorgeous - definitely brought a smile - I would adore visiting a French flower market! I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,

  27. It looks wonderful! Love all the flowers!
