Show Off Your Cottage Monday

I love lilacs and the heady smell of lilacs blooming. There’s nothing quite like the scent of this lovely flowers; it's almost magical... and that's the scent wafting from almost every room in my house lately... If you’re a lilac lover like me, then you no doubt feel the lilac blooming season is far too short. I am saving these lovely memories....

For those of you not familiar with our "linky parties” they are basically a chance for us home and garden lovers to show off… well, just that—our homes and gardens! And all in all whatever is going on in our life that’s worth sharing! Got anything you’d like to share? Then link up! But remember:

Etiquette for linky parties

1) Link to a recent project post, and not a link to the front page of your blog, your Etsy store or a giveaway.

2) Link back to the host’s blog via a button or text link. This is a common courtesy, and it is usually appreciated if you link back in the same blog post that you are linking up.

  2. Hi Cielo, I too love the sweet frangrance of lilacs. Yes, I wish that they bloomed longer. It is always something I look forward to every year. Your display is lovely. The cake stand and pitcher are both beautiful. Thanks for allowing us to share!
    Hugs,
    Jann

  8. I just love Lilacs. Their season is too short - like the Duchess. I have been looking for varieties that will tolerate our short winter - there are a few - I hope they are as fragrant as the ones of my memory.
    I hope you have a blessed week and appreciate you hosting,
    Kathy

  11. Cielo ... your photos are increasing my anticipation of our own lilacs , that are yet to come into bloom. You are so right their blooming time is so short ... but truly magical and worth the wait each each year. Thank you for sharing and enabling others to share their blooms and homes , so that we are always able to enjoy the beauty of nature through photos until it fully awakens in our own gardens...xo Hugs, HHL

  24. I would love to have vases full of lilacs in my house as I love the scent. DH has asthma though so I can't have anything like that sadly. Not that they are flowering yet here but when they do I shall enjoy them as I pass them in people's gardens.
