Ahhh Spring is in the air

 I found this great urn in Goodwill the other day.  I love that it is all beat up and beautiful at the same time.  I'm not into perfect or shiny.  Oh and remember this little flower frog that is soo nice I bought it twice?  Read here.

Thank goodness my next door neighbors don't mind that I help myself to their lilacs.  My husband loves them because they were his grandmother's favorite flower.  They smell delicious and when the windows are open you can smell them in the breeze at night.  I grew up in California where lilacs don't grow, it is so nice to be able to grow them here.  It is really easy to elevate the mundane.  Just a cast-off urn, some garden shears, and nice neighbors are all that you need.
