I didn't think I was going to take anymore pictures until the end of the week, but when I woke up this morning and saw my dwarf Korean lilac shrub practically in full bloom, I pounced at the camera. This lilac shrub was planted at construction time of our home.
We are the 2nd home owners of this property. We bought our place from an older couple who had the whole place painted this neutral wall color; they only lived in here for a year before selling. I was surprised to find such a nicely maintained home in move-in condition. But, it was a surprise to me later on that the paint is flat paint; the most difficult finish to take care of. And I have two young children. The Magic Eraser just strips nicks and marks immediately down to the dry wall. A real pain in the rear. We are hoping to get the whole place repainted when the kids are a little older. We have really high ceilings in the living room, so we need to get professionals for that height. I wish I asked the former owners what color paint we have; I have no idea. what it is. A very light cream/linen color.
Here is the breakfast seating area in my kitchen.
Right now we have the original blinds that came with the house, but I am planning to do either white or linen cafe curtains here..
Isn't this vintage ledger page nice?
I got it from Tracey from French Larkspur when I bought my jute rug.
And here is the my lilac bush right outside the front door..
It smells absolutely heavenly right now.
Thanks for stopping by to see my lilac blooms.
I'm linking up with Photo Feature Friday at A Rosy Note.
My friend Tricia from A Rosy Note has a really sweet giveaway going on right now.
Have a wonderful rest of the week and enjoy the beautiful month of May.
