~ Forever In Love ~

I am forever in love with lilacs....
I picked these up from the market last night and couldn't wait to bring them home!
Isn't it amazing how a small bunch of flowers can inspire you to change the look of the  entire room? Bringing in pillows and other lovely objects from  other rooms and closets, and God knows how much stuff we have in our closets :) I pulled out tiny little "treasures"  from here and there and brought them together to make a lovely vignette.
It saddens my heart knowing that these lovelies   wont last forever....



Lilacs are my childhood flowers..... feeling a bit nostalgic.....

The intoxicating scent... and it's glorious beauty.


I just reupholstered the settee. almost done with it. I will share before and after when done.

This was my weekend project found at a near by thrift store. / before /

After




Thank you for your visit.
Wishing you a lovely Spring day
Do something beautiful for yourself.

  1. I love your bouquet of lilas. I'm sure they smell lovely every time you pass them. I especially like the statue next to it, it's gorgeous. I am feeling a bit nostalgic myself, as my favorite cousin passed away last week and remembering all the times we had growing up.

    Your home looks so nice, thanks for giving us a peek at it.

  2. Your lilacs are gorgeous! And what an amazing transformation of the side table. Love the color and finish and the sweet swag at the bottom of the stand.
    I always enjoy when you stop by for a visit.

  8. Dear Angela,
    Your flower arrangement in that footed vase is divine! I can smell it all the way here in DC :)
    Is that a vintage trophy cup? I love lilacs but they sometimes get powdery mildew in muggy DC.
    Cheers,
    Loi
