Silk Peonies in the Spring Corner

When I was at the Dollar Tree the other day, I noticed these pretty silk peonies.  I didn't pick any up and I couldn't stop thinking about them.  Since I don't have any real ones to enjoy, I went back to get these silk ones and they will never wilt away and die!
I am definitely missing their sweet scent, but I do have some Peony Petals wax in my warmer that helps make up for that. 
When I was at JoAnn's, I also saw this pretty glass jar.  I am thinking of painting it white so it will look like milk glass with the little hobnail design it has on it.  This jar also has a handle so I could hang it from something as well. I tied a piece of soft pink tulle around it and set it on a pink paper doily on top of my vintage crate.
I love this corner of my living room where my vintage, chippy white door lives.  I enjoy decorating it to go with the season or holiday and today it is definitely ready for spring! 
This yellow rose bunting that I made a few years ago is such a fun piece.  I still have some of the fabric that I used for it left and it is fun to use it for other craft projects. 
I have had this wreath for years and it is still looking good. It ties the pink peonies and yellow rose bunting all together so nicely. 
And here is the whole corner for you to see.  The door has a twin on the patio and I purchased them both for $10 about 5 years ago.  I have said it before and I will say it again, that was probably the best $10 I ever spent! 
Wishing you all a Happy Mother's Day.  To those like me who wish to be a mother but are unable to, I wish you peace and comfort on this day which is one of the hardest days of the year to go through.

Your peonies are so pretty, Trisha! I just love your idea of painted the vase to look like milk glass! And I can't believe you found both doors for so cheap! I am wishing you peace on this day as well. I can so relate to it being a hard day for so many, especially those of us who always wanted our own children. You are not alone, my friend. Sending you an extra big hug!!
