Lilacs and Leggings

Lilacs are blossoming in every shade from white to pink to lilac and magenta! Spring arrived late this year, but there’s always a silver lining and therefore the blossoms are lingering longer. Magnolias have just vanished as the lilacs appeared and are still here. This is our neighbour’s dwarf lilac tree and a beautiful spot for this post.

Leggings are perfect for my dance classes and so comfortable around the house and garden too. I have a lovely leggings collection, mostly fun prints and patterns from tartan to florals and paisley to leopard print, even lace leggings. I’m showing two today.

Tartan leggings: like new, recently purchased at a thrift store for $5.

Floral leggings: petite fleur print, I love the dainty little flowers.

Covered Perfectly

I have five Covered Perfectly tops: they are the perfect length for leggings, made in USA, top quality. I’ve had them for years and need to order more. Please take a look at Pauline’s remarkable story, a cancer survivor and a successful businesswoman.

We had a lilac tree in the garden of a house where we used to live. During this season, I love fresh lilacs in our home and especially in our garden room. The fragrance is heavenly!

Have a Fabulous Friday!

    Fabulous look! I love your purse. I’ve never heard of a lilac tree before. I wonder if it’s a lilac bush just pruned to look like a tree?

    How beautiful these leggings, they are beautiful! I love your simple and beautiful look, and I love the background with the flowers, that background so yours! And when I speak of leggings, I mean the two prints, although it is very natural and the other very original. And your little bag and your tea room, facing the forest, that wonderful corner of your life …

      Thank you kindly! I am certainly enjoying the lilacs even though our weather is often raining and cool, I’m so glad it’s not snowing! My “tea room” is a lovely place for inviting guests. It’s a pity you live so far or you would be my guest. 🙂

      My recent afternoon tea party (was actually a wine party). 🙂

  5. Lilacs are so pretty Carmen and the silver lining is that they are lasting longer with a late spring ! Lovely pics by your neighbours lilac tree. Oh I so love your leggings. It is nice to have the tartan ones to remind you of your time in Scotland! The floral leggings are so pretty with the dainty flowers. The top looks a comfy fit to wear and compliments both pairs of leggings. Cute floral purse too. Your garden room is so nice for relaxing and having your coffee! Happy Sunday, Terri xo.

      Thank you so much Terri! This top is called SIMPLE COMFORT and it truly is so soft and comfortable! I love tartan, my neighbour in Scotland said I was “tartan daft” because I bought so many things in tartan including bedsheets, blankets and a lampshade. We went for a Sunday drive today and the lilacs are looking beautiful everywhere. Have a wonderful week!



      • Thanks for the top information Carmen. Aww you knew what you liked in Scotland and tartan is so nice in every form. I am glad you got out for a Sunday drive. I love them too. Glad you got to see lots of lilacs. Have a lovely week also, I hope the weather will be nice for you, Terri xo.
