Sunflowers Make us Smile!

Sunflowers are just one of those things that will make so many of us smile!
On the other hand, bees are something that can be very pesky, even though they are a vital part of our environment.   
I kind of look at it as sweet and sour.
You can't really have one without the other!
We have been following the sun just like the sunflowers!
 We have seen quite a few bees around here.
Unfortunately most of them are the wood boring bees and I am not sure that they
are the kind we want to see!
I hope your summer has been sunny and bright!

Thanks for stopping by,

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.


  1. Ann, I love your sunny table with the sunflowers! It says welcome! I always plant sunflowers, and they are about to bloom!

  2. Such a gorgeous table. I love sunflowers but didn't plant any this year. Am really enjoying yours. :)

  3. What a lovely table! I love the bee theme, very summery! The sunflowers are gorgeous! Such a happy table!..Christine

  4. This is so cheerful! Love the mass of sunflowers and the pretty beehive dishes! You've reminded me I have some too and should use them more often. You are so right about bees- a necessary part of our world but sometimes very pesky! I had to do battle with some ground bees last year that invaded my garden by the water fountain. Having hundreds of bees going by my face while trying to relax was not going to do!

  5. This is so pretty Ann! August always makes me think sunflowers, like the last burst of summer~ the bee skep and plates are adorable!

  6. Your sunflowers are definitely making me smile! I really wanted to plant some this year but like every year I keep forgetting! Seeing your beautiful table just made me set a reminder in my cell pone to buy seeds and do it next year. Those cute little beehive dishes are to die for. Have a great day Anne!

  7. Beautiful and colorful tablescape!Love sunflowers!

  9. So pretty Ann. Love the bee plates and your setting right by the water. So many cute touches for your table. The sunflowers are lovely and perfect for late summer. I haven't been blogging such, we have had another remodel project going on for a while: the bathroom. Take care.

  10. Definitely smiling as I pinned your pics! Love the look you've created with the sunflowers, cheery yellow plates and pretty stemware - all beside the brilliant blue water! Would love to dine here, bees or no bees! :)

  11. Agree - sunflowers make me smile too! Great table setting :) xo
