Once again, not a good clear picture. (It's hard to take a picture with this thing, your hand gets all shaky trying to hold it and view it onscreen...) Anyway. These are some of my neighbors (shhh!) lilacs I just picked. Technically, it isn't in anyones' yard at all. The lilac bush is in the alley, behind their fence. There's about a half a foot of grass, and the bush. They smell so nice. And the vase has two lilac colored splashes of *flower* petals; underneath, the gold stems... You might think I have nothing better to do than pick lilacs and post about them. That is the farthest from the truth though. Have you seen Cupcake's New Corrugated Tea Cozies and Coffee Plunger patterns!? They are so cute! I would buy them if I didn't already have three tea cozies and another one planned. (To go with my *new* kitchen colors. Aka: new dishtowels potholders, and two $1 pictures at WalMart. A rooster and apples. Yes my new kitchen colors are red. And tan.) The living room is tan and brown with red splashes. (Well there aren't technically any splashes of red in there yet, but...) I wanted to do the dining room in tan, too. Right now it isn't really anything. And my kitchen towels are about fifteen years old. (Wedding gifts, I tell you.) So. It really was time to buy some new ones. :)

I'm sure the lilacs are pretty and I would love to smell it too...the vase is lovely :)
I did see cupcake's new designs, very clever.

I wish you could do a smell-a-vision so you could smell them, Mimi. Do you have lilac bushes in the Philippines? My Grandma has a lilac bush in her yard. I think they must remind me of her house and visiting her. :)
