Old-Fashion Lilacs





I almost waited too long to cut some lilacs to bring in my home! Last week was so busy that I kept putting it off...peering out the kitchen window in the morning before work, but just never getting out to cut them! They smell wonderful even if they don't look their best in these shots! :)

Linking up with Table Top Tuesday!
Also linking with Tea Time Tuesday and Tuesday Tea for Two for the first time! :)

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Carolyn! Oh, how lovely! Your lilacs are glorious and I love your precious vignette you've set up. The tea cup tower is delightful!
Be a sweetie,

Oh this is so pretty and I love the Lilacs. The coffeepot is stunning and the cups are so beautifully displayed. What a great idea to also use the cake cloche. I never remember mine. This gives me inspiration. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

I love lilacs too. Yours all look lovely! I need more sun in my yard so I could grow them.

Natasha said...

They look lovely-I wish I could smell them. I don't think I have ever smelt a real lilac before but hopefully one day I will.

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Your lilacs look so pretty. I can almost smell them through my monitor. I also love your tea cup display.

What a very beautiful vignette, loved the creamer and sugar bowl. Lilacs are one of my favs., although I don't have any growing in my yard, but now you have planted a ideal for me to work on.

Hi Carolyn,
I love lilacs! In my book, they are the best of flowers! Ours aren't quite ready yet, but boy I can't wait! Thanks for coming by too. Cindy

Your lilac look lovely! I'm afraid I've done the same. I've waited too long as we're on day 3 of rain. I keep hoping the sun will pop out and dry them up!

Oh, for a week, Linderhof smelled of lilacs -- both inside and out -- one of my favorite flowers and armfuls were picked for the house this year they were so prolific! Love lilacs!

Such a pretty vignette! I love seeing lilacs, as they don't grow in my area -- though the new Southern Living recommended a variety to try. Love the teacup tower, and are those pink Depression glass cups by the coffee pot? Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting!

What pretty photos! Love how you have used the lilacs, they look great! Love the pink glass cups I see. Are they depression glass?

Carolyn said...

Thank you for all of the awesome comments! I appreciate them! Yes, the teacups are pink depression glass! I love pink depression and started collecting a little bit here and there for the past 30 years! :)
Hugs, Carolyn

Look at all your pretties! That tea cup holder is wonderful. I have not seen one before. I will keep an eye out for those now I have seen yours.
You are so lucky to have Lilacs! I just love them, and they look beautiful in your post.
Thank you for joining us in Tea Cup Tuesday today, I have loved coming to see you : )
Hugs,

I like your teacup stand! Such a pretty way to set cups out on the table. Your lilac and spirea bouquet is beautiful too.

This is so lovely! I just adore the pot, the creamer and sugar! The cups and saucers in the rack! So pretty! I just lilacs! I scrolled down oh you have a beautiful collection of pink depression glass! I saw many lovely posts!
I saw a 3 tier crystal sever! I love it! I have several crystal pieces like it. I know I have seen it in a book before that tells what it worth. I do not remember the name of the pattern, your tier is the first one I have ever seen. I just love it!
