I found this great little bucket thing last week. The possibilities are endless (carrying utensils outside to eat, holding crayons and chalk, clothespins, flowers...) but right now it's on the dining room table with a tealight in each bucket. I think it will be very pretty on our soon-to-arrive picnic table in the evening, with the flickering tealights burning away. And our lilac tree has revived! Last year, we may have had two or three blooms. We pruned several dead branches, and also pruned a lot from a neighbouring snowball tree which was blocking the light from the lilac. This year, it's covered in blooms again. I wish you could smell them! Like most flowers, artificial versions are dreadful, but the actual scent is fantastic.
It has been a long and busy week, and I am thrilled that it's Friday. I have plans for a bit of a soapmaking marathon this weekend, since I have very little soap on hand, and I'm finally feeling like making some! I hope that you have a great weekend!
