Show and Tell Friday 4-30

I'm participating in Cindy's "Show and Tell Friday"
She'll have a list of everyone that's joining in.

First I wanted to show you one of my favorite pictures I have in my house.
Framed, it's about 16 X 20. I got it a few years ago at an estate sale right across the road! (I think it was only $12.00) It's a signed water color of a little red squirrel. We have tons of them here. (Both inside and out!!!) I know I hear them in my attic!

Today I picked lilacs. I have two large bushes. One is old and one is newer. Really I have a third at the back of my property but it's too hard to get to.
The old bush has the more reddish purple flower and the new has a bluer color.

I couldn't find my vases. They are still in boxes from my kitchen and dining room reno.
So I used this old white graniteware coffee pot. A great look for the kitchen don't you think!!

Go ahead, put your nose up to the computer screen and take a big sniff. Don't they smell divine!!!

My dogwood tree outside my kitchen window is in full bloom.
Hope you enjoyed my few little things this week.
See you next time
