  1. Hi Carrie!!!
    I thought I lost you for good. Arnie cleared some stuff on our computer and I couldn't remember the name of your blog! Duh!!!
    I love your tip of the week. I was going to buy something at BB&B to put those bags in. I also like the flowers on the white mixer. I just bought a white retro teapot with blue flowers.
    Congratulations on winning SB's book!
    I should make it to WI, by the end of Summer. So much work, and I am trying to squeeze in my swimming too.
    Hugs,
    Margot

    1. Oh yay Margot!! So nice to hear from you again and I'm so happy you found me!!
      Thanks for the update and the nice comments my darling Gal! I still can't believe out of all those folks that I won Susan's book!! Woo hoo, maybe I should play the lottery? Feeling pretty lucky. ;)

      Keep up the great work with swimming! Summer season is rapidly approaching so you'll be a midwestern girl before you know it.

    1. Me too Jill!! Our pretties in the north always bloom so much later than everyone else. They're just starting to fade a bit now. I always hate to see them go too. xo

    1. Thanks Karen my Girl!

      That smell truly is the best!! I love that runner too. I've had it for ages and bought it in a market when I was visiting relatives in Poland. My cousin there had one like it and I loved it and she helped me find some like hers. ;)

  6. Lovely lilac! Mine is just coming out too. I found dipping the freshly cut stems in boiling water for a minute makes them last longer in the vase xx

  8. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, smells quite like lilacs. They can fill a room with fragrance quicker than Fisherman can after eating a burrito.

    TMI?

    Enjoy your weekend!

      And I feel your pain - I live with a hubby too, not to mention a teenage eating machine, so I feel like I practically live in a cloud!! Lol ;)
