My dining room has never looked so pretty as it does with these lovely lilacs from my yard in it and the aroma is intoxicating. Enjoy! xoxo K.
There is something about this time of year when the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and everything around our property starts to turn green and beautiful buds begin to bloom. I notice as I'm driving the country roads that I live by, that every old farmhouse has a huge lilac bush blooming which just shows that these are an old fashioned flower and one of the first things we planted when we built our home.
I love fresh flowers in my home and especially this time of year because I can go outside and cut them myself knowing all my hard work of nurturing each tree, shrub and plant has paid off.
These lilac blooms look especially good in this room in all the French green bottles and jars I've collected. What do you think of the Ikea blanket that I used for a tablecloth? I've found so many uses for them.
And on the other end of this room I places some cuttings from a Bridal Veil Spirea in an ironstone tureen. It's such a lovely addition to this shelf and these shrubs look great out in my yard right now all loaded with tiny white blooms.
Have a wonderful weekend! Looks like sunny skies for us and I'm hoping to get some junk fixed, cleaned up and priced for The Farm Chicks Show which is coming up the first weekend in June!
