Everything's coming up lilacs

Is there anything more heavenly than the scent of lilacs? My two lilac bushes are blooming profusely. Here's a few blooms...

and my niece, Savannah, and family were visiting this weekend - no matter how many times I tried, at different angles, she wouldn't open her eyes for the pic. Isn't she a doll?

Also a pic of lilac glasses and tray for sale on my website.

Have a wonderful, lilac-y day!

The winner is........Kathleen from Maine! Here's the little vintage teacup pincushion I made. I used some violet fabric, pearl trim, a bow and a vintage earring. Hope you like it Kathleen. And many thanks to Dawn of The Feathered Nest for spreading the news of my giveaway. I love Dawn's blog and seeing what she's up to. Keep checking back, I'll have other little surprises from time to time. Also check out my website giveaways. I had a wonderful birthday today.....another one has come and gone. Thank you to all my well-wishers.
