Spring has finally arrived here at home and I thought I would share the view from my kitchen window.
One of the main reasons I wanted to move the kitchen to what was our living room before the renovation was so that I could see this old lilac bush from the window over my sink.
It's supposed to rain today and throughout the weekend so I went out to pick some lilacs before it arrives.
The fragrance is intoxicating!
So fresh and fabulous! Lilac season is so short I just want to flood the house with their fragrance!
I brought enough in to place a bouquet in every room!
Before I place them into my pitchers and vases, I smash the ends with a hammer. This allows for more water to be soaked up by the flowers and they tend to last longer.
I use my gramps old hammer, partly for nostalgia and well it's become a habit.
I left a small pitcher on the windowsill to enjoy while I do dishes...
And then scattered several through out the house!
They look so pretty in the newly completed living room and library. My current favorite place to hang out.
While I was away from the blog, I made two trips to Texas to see Miss Paisley Reyné.
She will be 6 months old on Sunday... what a personality!
I can't believe how time flies!
We Spent Easter there... Paisley's first!
I celebrated one of those milestone birthday's there too!
Paisley helped me blow out those crazy candles...
And came home with new boots from my dear sweet hubby!
Life is good!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Take time to smell the flowers!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Until next time, Many Blessings!
