Growing up, my grandparents lived down the street from me. Eight houses. And just past the halfway mark was a house with large lilac bushes. Oh, how I loved to grab a few of these small flowers. I reallllly wanted them in my own yard. Fast Forward nearly two decades...and Ken and I bought this house at the end of August. There were there large, seemingly over grown buses in the backyard. I told him that "next spring" we'd HAVE to cut them down. Boy am I glad that I waited. A year rolls around and they were LILAC BUSHES! I have my own lilac bushes in my yard. They don't seem to smell as much as those along the path to my grandparents' home. Like Faith, I remember them blooming all summer as well. Either way, I was happy to see this new Lilacs in Summer set from Mark's Finest Papers!
And yes, this green, gingham paper is found at Mark's Finest Papers as well!
