Yay! The Lilacs Are Blooming...

...just in time for Mother's Day! Definitely one of my most favorite flowers and fragrance.
I've been painting some furniture the last couple of days. On Wednesday, I picked up this little table at a thrift store for $2.99. We had the chairs, but everything needed to be painted to coordinate together. Sydney picked out the white plastic pitcher at the thrift store to use as a vase, and I hemmed up a remnant of fabric for the tablecloth. We cut some lilacs for the centerpiece, and now both girls are busy setting up for a tea party in their newly decorated house.
I better be invited... hehe

Lilacs are my favorite, I love the smell of them. I have one white and one purple plant but they are not very big yet. Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day.
