Bye Bye Google Reader...

I interrupt your lovely weekend festivities with a little news...just in case you aren't aware of it yet.  Today is the last day you can follow any blogs by using Google reader.  I'd hate for any of you to miss any of my posts so if you haven't done so already, do switch over to Feedly, which is what I've done.  Super easy, just the click of a button and all of your feeds are automatically transferred.  I like painless processes like this.  There are other options too, like Bloglovin, but I haven't given that one a go.  Also, don't forget to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram (links to your right) for all kinds of blog updates and other fun info.  Now back to our regular weekend programming! 

P.S.  That peony just bloomed a few days ago and I can't stop staring at it.  If the ants didn't love it as much as I do, it would be in my house, in a vase, perfuming my place.  And below, don't you just love that great yellow cup I got at Homesense for just a pittance?  Put a bird on it! 


  1. hi renee! i'm really going to miss google reader - i so enjoyed sharing things i found with other people and neither feedly nor any of the other readers i have sampled seem to have a simple way to do this... :(
    on another note - if you cut a peony to bring in the house and don't want to share it with the ants, you can swish it in a sinkful of cool water for a few moments before putting it into a vase - the ants wash right off!

  2. Molly - thanks so much for the tip! Going to try it out today. Ants be gone!

  3. Love that sweet little yellow tea cup! A friend once told me - it's actually a bad thing if you DON'T have ants on your peonies. Before they bloom, the ball-head of the flower is covered in wax. The ants eat the wax. If you don't have ants on your peonies, the wax remains on the flowers, enclosing the petals, and they can't open.

  4. Kelly - thanks for the info. Good to know! Geez, I'm learning so much about peonies and ants!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
