Design Wall Tuesday?

OK, so I know it is supposed to be “Design Wall Monday” but we were gone all Sunday and Monday so I couldn’t post anything.  And, nothing has changed since I posted my BOM blocks last Wednesday.  But I couldn’t pass up the chance to contribute so this is my contribution.

We arrived home last night, after our 13 hour drive in separate cars, to find this beautiful floral arrangement sitting on our deck.  It is an anniversary gift from the president of the community college where DH taught for 35 years and continues to teach as an adjunct.  I think that people are astounded that so lively and young looking a couple could possibly be married for 50 years.  Me, too!!

This morning I rearranged the mantle to accommodate the flowers: I designed this wall.  I want to be able to look at them but also to keep them away from the cat who took an instant liking to them.

Anyway, our trip went well and on my next post I will tell about our anniversary dinner and what our wonderful children did for us.

Have a great week!

  3. Wow - 50 years. I'll definately be back to see how your weekend went! Love the flowers. Dropped by because you made my day with your "normal" comment on my blog - especially when I saw your job description on your profile ! The answer is yes, I always feel normal, but I think my normal is much, much different than everyone else's !

  5. Happy anniversary! It is ironic about the separate drive, but time apart can be good for a marriage, right? :) So glad everything went well on the long drive back.
