Opening Day Weekend...

It was a beautiful weekend,
it was a sunny weekend..

It was opening day weekend...


the Lilacs burst open all around the garden...


and garage sales started opening up...

I picked up this round mirror
with beveled glass edges
for a couple dollars...

perfect for a centerpiece...


I popped into a little antique store,
to indulge my new intrigue...

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint...

I spied this big beautiful pressed glass
 basket vase...


you gotta have sparkle :-)


 I knew the Lilacs would be a perfect fit,

I am sure roses won't be shabby either...



I hope your weekend was sweet too..

Today I am joining...

Thanks for stopping by today...

Great finds Bella! And beautiful Lilacs ~ We only got a few lilacs from ours, as we had a few days of frost when they were starting to bud :( I did bring in what I could to enjoy their beauty :)

Your lilacs are the most gorgeous color! I don't think you could have found a more gorgeous way to display them either. So glad you got a sunny weekend!

This such a beautiful post. I love your glass basket and the mirror and of course, the lilacs! They aren't quite in bloom here yet so I have yet to enjoy their perfume. Have a great week. Pamela

I love the basket vase and putting it on the mirror was an inspired idea. The lilacs look wonderful displayed like that. The mirror was a real bargain too,
