My lilacs are finally blooming! Just in time for my Mother's Day Table.
I have been jealous watching all of you posting such beautiful flowers while we were still having snow here in Ohio!
I was worried I would not have any lilacs this year. My mother had started a lilac bush for me several years ago from one of her bushes. It has grown pretty steadily over the last few years. But for some reason this year it is not looking so good. It will get some TLC this spring so that I don't loose it.
It all started with these beautiful lilac plates with a raised floral pattern.
Then I found the purple version of the stemware that I have been in awe of on some of my favorite blogger's tables!!
From there I took a trip to my favorite fabric store, it is like a little slice of heaven for those of us who collect fabric!! I would like to make a shout out to the girls at Miller's Dry Goods in Charm, Ohio!! If you sew and have not been there yet - I highly recommend this store. You will not be disappointed!
I bought two beautiful pieces of fabric for the napkins, one a floral, the other a subtle plaid of lilac and brown. The floral piece is one of the prettiest pieces of fabric I have ever worked with.
On my last trip to Miller's Dry Goods I met two ladies who were taking a cross country trip to every quilt store they could find and blogging about the trip. They were having such a good time, it was infectious!
While my mother cannot make the trip down to my house, I will be making a trip up to see my mom at her house. I hope to enjoy this table with my boys who will be home this weekend! They will endure all the purple and flowers for their mom for one day!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you! I hope you are able to share some special memories with someone who has been a Mother to you.
