Good Sunday Morning, Everyone:

It's a beautiful sunny day in the foothills and the lilacs are in full bloom and calling my name.  They are so lovely and I wanted to share with you a little bit of Sunday morning sweetness.

I also wanted to share with you a wonderful give away from my friend, Courtney, over at

If you don't already follow Courtney, you will want to pay her a visit and do so now.

She is giving away a great gift from Lowe's.

Not only will you have a chance to win something really nice, you will become acquainted with Courtney, and her beautiful cottage, and you will not regret it.

Happy Sunday to you all....Judy


  1. Thanks for sharing a little bit of Sunday morning sweetness. That, it is! Happy Sunday!

  2. Hey Judy
    Thanks for the nice greeting on my blog :) Yes, that's my little dog, the breed is Pomeranian :) I'm still a little sore neck, and is not quite in shape for the time - but I really appreciate your visit. .. Nice blog you have and many beautiful flowers :)) I'll also take a look inside the blog of Courtney :) Always exciting to discover new blogs ... Wish you a nice evening - hug from Mette

  4. my lilacs are just starting to bloom--your room must smell wonderful, judy! your tabel is lovely! your garden pics and the buddy pics are so sweet! have a great week!

  5. Hi Judy,
    Great photos! Thanks so much for following and your sweet comments on the doctor's ladies.
    I only have the two that are shown, I unwittingly passed on the first one I saw, just didn't know enough about them. I've been regreting it ever since. I guess the Kovels are right, "You don't regret the things you buy, just the things you don't!"
    Have a great week!
    Hugs to you,

  6. Your lilacs look lovely Judy and I like your pretty little bramble teapot sitting next to them.

  7. I LOVE that photo, and the framing is so gorgeous for it.....curtains make it so soft. Nice touch with Dad and Aunt Alda. Never had the chance to call her might have (???) I better pick some lilacs for my table...even if there is no one else there to see them. Sid

  8. Hi Judy - beautiful lilacs. I have to do something with mine because they have not bloomed in a few years. Thanks so much for your comments send support on my blogs.

  10. Hi Judy - I thought I was following, but I guess I wasn't, because I keep missing your post. I will fix that directly.
    Lilac is one of my favourite scents. There's a lilac by the dining room window, but it is only just in leaf. It will be a while before it blooms. Yours look heavenly!

  11. Your lilacs are just beautiful, Judy! My very favorite flower of the season! xo Diana

  12. Hi Judy! Oh my know how I LOVE lilacs and yours are beautiful. I can almost smell them..sigh. I wish they would last longer...the last two years ours have come and gone so fast compared to the first year we saw them bloom here on the farm. That must have been a perfect year for them..the right amount of moisture and sun and they seemed to last a couple of weeks longer that year. Oh well...maybe next year will be a good one for ours. Enjoy yours while they last. Have a wonderful week! Maura :)

  13. Sweet Lilac pictures Judy! Don't we with they would bloom longer?

  14. Hello Judy
    Thanks so much for visiting and following my blog - here I am in return following your sweet and endearing blog. Oh, and you having me going with those gorgeous lilacs. In our last home (in Scandinavia) we had a huge old lilac in the garden (one of my absolute favorites) but now that we live on a little Greek island there is not a lilac in sight. I miss them and the scent so dearly. Thanks for sharing the lovely images... the scent almost comes across :)
