Happy Birthday Mum and gorgeous Peony!


Hello, hope all is well!
February is a special month in our family as it’s my Mum’s birthday!

I thought I’d share this picture of my Mum with my two older sisters and little me! In fact, I’ve just noticed I’m shoving some food into my mouth… well there’s a surprise! The photo was taken nearly 40 years ago!

My Mum, like so many is simply fabulous. I owe so much to her and she is an amazing Grandmother to my children who think she is super cool!

Wildlife World swing bird feederWe’ve put together a little treasure chest of presents for her including this swing seat bird feeder I bought a few weeks ago from QVC. Mum loves her wildlife and encourages as much as she can into her garden. Mum won’t discourage anything; so much so that snails are welcome – even if they do help themselves to what’s growing in the garden from time to time! The seat is adorable and Mum will just love it I’m sure.

We have other treats as well – including a spot of beauty for her too! I may even bake a cake (using Dad’s secret fruit cake recipe!)

Staying with the topic of all things beautiful, I’m thrilled to see I’m launching the Peony Today’s Special Value this coming Monday 23rd February at midnight.

I’m a huge fan of Peony. As I often say on air… for me, Peony is to flowers what Diamonique is to diamonds. The arrangements are so lifelike. We love them at home and have gathered quite a collection over the years.

QVC Peony special offerThey are so easy to care for… in fact, virtually maintenance free. Our TSV is the Spring Seasonal Bouquet featuring life like hydrangeas, orchids, roses and eucalyptus. It will come beautifully wrapped with ribbon too. If you like the vase I’ve displayed the TSV in that will be available on the day as well.

Oh, and the TSV is on auto delivery, so if you want, you can receive other fabulous displays throughout the year. All will be revealed at midnight! Hope you can join me and Julie.

In the meantime I’d better start planning Mum’s cake!

Happy Birthday Mum and all our Love.

Thanks for being the best!
See you soon.

    Morning Charlie.
    What lovely words about your mum. I think we all think our mum’s are ” the best mum’s in the world”. My mum has put up with a lot over the years with my brother and sister [ and of course me].
    I have several Peony arrangements, and I’ve sent an arrangement to Australia [ of Peony’s for my cousin ] so adores the flower Peony. I did get that from Peony web site though. I love the single items so I can do my own arrangement’s.
    See your doing a Butler Wilson show is that a first ??
    Bella enjoyed her hello the other night.
    I’ll try and tweet a photo of her smelling her fav: yankee candles.
    Take care.

    Hi Debby and whoofs to Bella…

    It was the first B&W show for me in at least 3 years I’m thinking. It was lots of fun – hope you managed to catch some of it.

    Like you, I love peony but I haven’t sent any as far as Australia though!

    Best wishes
