Island Fun and Flowers

 I'm back from the wedding weekend.  Oh, being on Guemes Island really filled my beauty bank account!  Niece Sarah served donuts instead of cake!  Cute, huh?

 Here is the cute cabin my mom and I stayed in. 
 A peony bridal bouquet:  PERFECT!

 Cute Jane is the next bride.  I am her fairy godmother.  

 My mom and I drank LOTS of coffee!  We made many pots of java for the family.  

 My sister in law made a playhouse for her grands out of her old dog kennel.  She calls it the Kennel Kitchen.  She hung portraits of beloved dogs.  SO cute!  So clever!

 This is her bake stand where they sell berries and the famous shortcake (and other delicious baked treats!)

 After the wedding we came back to my mom's house and gabbed and gabbed until I had to leave for the airport.

 And now I'm back to our peonies.  Bill planted more marigolds, too.  I think this is the summer of marigolds!

I have a few free days before three granddaughters come to stay for six days.  I must put on my thinking cap and plan our fun.
Thank you for popping in!

Lots to this post and I enjoyed reading and looking at it all. : )
Great cabin. Makes me want to get back to working on ours. Maybe now that things have settled down we will be able to.

So much joy and beauty in this post, dear Pom! I love the peonies and the bride's dress looks so pretty from the back (as does that gorgeous lavender!). HOW cool is the dog kennel conversion!

Your mum looks lovely, all the pictures look so fabulous - the little wood cabin - I would so love to stay in there! the air looks clear and everything clean and fresh. I am glad you're back though as that means more of your blog posts! 6 days of girliness! I bet there will be fun - a beauty party (make up and dressing up?!) Hope it's lovely weather so you can get outside.

What a beautiful place that Island is ... the wedding looked just wonderful & your weather looked perfect too. How lovely to spend time chatting & chatting with your Mum. Thanks for sharing the flowers with me today as the rain pours down outside x x x

Oh Pom Pom! What beautiful fun you had!
It's all so glorious I don't know where to begin. I love it ALL!
And the Kennel Kitchen, well that's so "doggone" Cute ;-)
Your whole family is full of creativity and your Mom could not be cuter!
Love the donuts for wedding cake.

All beautiful: the people, the places, the flowers. But... I am in LOVE with the kennel kitchen, especially the hanging of dog portraits throughout. Wonderful! Wonderful! Happy days!

Farm Girl said...

What a beautiful place!! I love all of the flowers and all of that yummy food. I think it must have been so nice to be in that cabin. I would love waking up to that water.
Wow, six days? You are my hero!!!

GretchenJoanna said...

What a great gift to have a mom with whom you can enjoy sitting and gabbing and drinking coffee. It sounds like the loveliest getaway with a wedding by the water, flowers with the family. (sigh) Glory to God!

Granny Marigold said...

All those lovely photos!! It must have been a sweet wedding.
That must have been quite the dog kennel to be the size it is. Your sister has made it be so cute.
Isn't it nice to be home again though?

Looked like a delightful wedding! I love the doughnut idea instead of cake. Sounds like lots of sweet time with your dear mom, too. Welcome home again. I'm sure you'll come up with fun stuff for your granddaughters.

What a fantastic wedding and such gorgeous photos! I love the peonies. Thank you for sharing -- I am sure you had a wonderful time -- and what about that cabin? I could live there full time!

magsmcc said...

Pom Pom, I love your joy posts. They're all joy posts, but this is a gorgeous sorbet blend of all your best flavours! We have two weeks of school left here, and I am already planning days and chunks and activities of time! Do you jot notes on the calendar? That's what I found myself doing this week! I think I'll sit the boys down next time it rains outside and let them write slips of ideas to pop in that jam jar on the draining board today...

What a lovely wedding and what a delightful place to be! So many gorgeous, full peonies :) I prefer donuts to cake ANY DAY!! Great idea! You have such a fun family. Glad you are home safe and that you had such good time with your mama. Now it's time for Grammy Camp!

Gumbo Lily said...

It looks like you had a wonderful time with your mom and all the wedding people too. What fun! The peonies are magnificent! I've always thought peonies make the best bridal bouquets....but you have to get married in June so they're in season.

Six days of grannying sounds like lots of fun days and tired nights.

Maggie said...

Such a special place you took me to today, a secret island full of beauty. The wedding must have been like a fairy tale, love the peonies and those amazingly blue hydrangeas. So happy for you to have been able to share that experience with your Mum.
bon weekend, PP.

Heather LeFebvre said...

Oh such a beautiful place for a wedding!!! I can see how it would fill up someone's beauty bucket!!! There is magic about islands. So glad you have your peonies to enjoy! We are on to lilies here. Oh you are going to have a busy 6 days with your grand girls -- and lots of fun!!!!! I'm attending the Gospel Coalition Women's Conference this weekend -- good stuff!!!
