Lilac explosion and a little table

Our lilac bushes are literally exploding right now! I could easily fill bucket after bucket with them, but then the house wouldn't be as fragrant with all the windows open.

And this little guy will be familiar to those of you already on my mailing list but since it already has a new home I decided to share here a little sooner than I usually do.

A simple coat of creamy paint really went a long way for this table.

But I really think the reason so many of my clients were smitten is the simple circular shape and classic legs.

It will be going to a lovely client of mine tomorrow, which sadly only gave me a few days to enjoy it.

And for those of you who guessed what I was up to, you hit the nail on the head. I have my new door and trim all painted and almost ready to share!

Oh, those lilacs are just lovely! You must be in heaven right now.

The white really makes that table. I can see why it was in demand!

Love the flowers Holly!! The table is lovely!! I really wish I lived closer, although my hubby may not. He says no more furniture!! :O)

That table is beautiful and how I wish I could grow lilacs. It is too hot out here and they don't make it, hopefully I can find some at the market. I love the way they smell!

Mmmm, I can almost smell the lilacs from here. It smells like spring! There some trees near my office and I always wonder if you're allowed to pick off city trees?? They'd never know, right? haha.

Can't wait to see your door!!

Your lilacs are gorgeous! We have a florest that works with us in our design office and she brought in some lilacs from a photo shoot that are to die for! They smell SO good!

As always, your styling is impeccable! Have you ever thought of being a stylist for a magazine??? You should!

Hi Holly,

Loving your blog all the way from Australia and have done for a long time now! Random comment but have you ever or would you consider doing a post on your framed pictures. I see some gorgeous frames in some of your styling shoots of Wren, Wedding Pics etc etc in gorgeous sizes, colours and frames and wondered if you could show us and tell us more about frames, prints etc etc.

Many thanks and have a super weekend!
