Lilacs, Pearls and Lace

Pearls and lace and lilacs ~

Good morning friends ~ Don't you just love this time of year when everything is fresh and vibrant? One of the many things I enjoy is the scent of lilacs wafting through the air. Here on the Island, they are just starting to bloom.

So I picked myself a bouquet and put them into one of my JB Rose Chintz pitchers. The doilie above was crocheted by my Aunt Ethel.

Below, a creamer snuggles up to the lilacs with a strand of pearls in it. The pearls were a gift from my Auntie P which came all the way from Scotland while she was over there visiting. Auntie thought I would like them and she was so right! The whole vignette is sitting on one of my favourite vintage lace doilies.

Lilacs, pearls and lace, is there anything more feminine?

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a lovely day. I am joining Doni for her Pearls and Lace party -  Please stop by and pay her a visit to see what she is offering today.

  11. Lilacs remind me of mom lives where my dad's family lived and there are ancient bushes there as tall as the garage. Sweet memories. ♥♫
