Yesterday I was over at my friend Lane's house for her son's birthday party. Our boys are the same age-they met at our library's wonderful story hour a few years ago. She really knows how to throw a fun party for the kids. Over the past two summers, Lane's built up quite a collection of my bud vases. I was thrilled to see them all lined up on her kitchen windowsills filled with white and pink posies. There's a second set on the other side of the window- similarly lined up and filled. They looked so cute that I had to run home and get my camera!
