Happy Memorial Day to all!
The time is short but oh so sweet and I look forward to when my lilacs are in bloom every year!
It reminds me of when I was a little girl and my Mom would fill our home with the scent of sweet lilacs . The scent of lilacs takes me back to a simpler time. I hope my own children will remember that our home smelled oh so good and was overflowing with beautiful lilacs.
For some reason, we have a bumper crop of lilacs this spring! They came late but are oh so worth the wait!
I am out picking them by the armfuls! We are supposed to be close to 90 degrees today and that means my lilacs will fade quickly! We can go from winter to summer so quickly around here!
My pitcher is overflowing with lilacs and lily of the valley! OOH, it smells so good! The lily of the valley has such a pretty fragrance.
My bunny cost a buck at a thrift shop and the luncheon cloth was about $2... also purchased at a thrift shop.
Napkins tied with polka-dot ribbon!
This shot is a little too light but my lighting just wasn't that good this morning.
A little darker here. The goblets are from the dollar tree.
My living room is bursting with lilacs too! On this table.....
And over here.....
They make me happy they make me smile and they're free!
And I still have more empty vases to fill!
Here's wishing you all a very happy week ahead!
P.S. I am still unable to comment on some of your blogs. If I haven't been around to comment that is probably why.
