White Lilacs



This old coffee tin was a find at an antique show I went to earlier in the month.....I have been patiently waiting for our white lilacs to bloom......







Aahhh....sigh.....







Patience is a virtue.....







I would like to take a moment to thank a new blogger friend named Joan from Anything Goes Here......Joan 's post today was about me at 52 Flea! I am honored and flattered that she is enjoying my blog and would invite you all to check out her blog too. Joan has been an antique dealer for a long time and has many collections and a wealth of knowledge. Her home and business have been featured in magazines.... I am looking forward to seeing more of her blog and getting to know her better!

What a lucky gal you are to have found that tin! The flowers look perfect in it!

Heidi said...

covet covet covet, I will not covet. LOL. Your tin is so great, and lilacs are my favorite. My home growing up had them all down one side of the yard and I never get tired of the scent! I have planted them in every home I have owned until this one...I think I might have to find a place in the landscape for some!
