I think alot of us have something that takes us back to our childhood years. Whether it is a sound, smell or by sight there seems to be something that whisks us right back to where we have come from.
Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago I can remember almost always being outside. Playing ball in the yard, climbing trees (which I did alot of), playing ghost in the graveyard with all our chilhood friends, whatever it was we always seemed to be outside. In the back yard of our tiny house with the pink awning I will always remember our lilac bush. While driving with the windows down the other day I caught my first smell of spring. The strong but wonderful scent of lilac immediately took me back to those times of carefree play and I felt like a child again. Oh how I remember that smell!
I wanted to pay tribute to the most legendary flower in my memory by featuring some fantastic Etsy sellers. Within these beautiful shops I hope you will find inspiration and rememberance. Don't forget mother's day if approaching quickly and each one of these shops have beautiful items that I am sure every mother would love and possibly take her back to a glorius memory that has too soon been forgotten.
