Through My Front Door With Lilacs And Cherry Blossoms



Hello How Are You?

Yes! spring is in the air and all the flowers are blooming everywhere.  The cherry blossom tree just outside our front door is in full bloom and the lilac bushes up the road are at peek.  
I love this time of year when I can go outside and cut fresh flowers and bring them into our home. 

(Guess where he's going)

I drove up the road and clipped a bunch of lilacs and placed some in a mirror window box in our tiny vestibule.  I also added branches from our cherry blossom tree and placed them in a watering can.

Decorating this tiny space really lifted my spirit since I have been feeling sad lately due to some personal problems in my life that I have been dealing with for a while... 

  You can see the reflection of the cherry blossom tree through the window panes in the mirror.
This is definitely aroma therapy.  The fragrance is so up lifting! Puts a smile on my face.



I placed the sea shell that my nephew found on the beach in the bird cage because summer is just around the corner.

The sweet sign was made by someone I use to work with at a flower shop.

I purchased the cabinet and the mirror at the same flower shop.  Most of my pay check was spent there buying so many pretty things.  {A girl just can't resist... you know what I mean?}





Yup that's me

And this is my Romeo who never goes outside.  He ended up inside the bush and it took me about 20 minutes trying to get him back inside the house.

Surround yourself with what you love and smile cause tomorrow is another day.....

  2. I always love the way you put things together...the stool and the big seashell in the birdcage. The pretty flowers are the perfect touch. I hope things are resolved soon and you don't feel sad any more. But there are always challenges in life so I'll say a prayer for you. Sweet hugs, Diane

  11. Julie love your Lilacs and vignette! We too have fur babies who never go outside and it takes forever to get the one to come back in if he does get out.

  12. A gorgeous vignette, I love the mirror 'window' and cabinet and the way the flowers soften them. (Visiting from Cozy Little House).

  13. I'm sorry to hear that you've been going through a difficult time. Hopefully things start picking up for you soon. You did a really good job decorating that space, it looks very warm and inviting. Like I can walk up and randomly find a warm apple pie, fresh out of the oven. LOL. Country-chic, I think y wife calls it.
