Easter Season is here and around our house!

Beginning.... Nobody awake yet at the house.  Lynley was home this weekend.  Made me move the chest to a different location into the dining room.  She has the degree in Interior Design so I took her advice.  Sydney, my niece, stayed Friday night, was nice to see her.

Gathering some stuff from the attic...





Here are a few fun places around the house I worked on over the weekend.



I'll start with country bunny.  Don't you just love her shoes and her hands are my favorite.  But I really need some fresh flowers for her basket.


Little table spaces next...



Ostrich eggs from Uncle Bob... (random comment)


The Dining Room... Beatrix Potter figurines from Lynley's Easter bunny collection.  The Easter bunny brought the girls one every year in their baskets.  I had to give two thirds away to the twins after they married.  We still have Lynley's collection though,  Jamima Puddle Duck, The very bad bunny, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton Tail and a few others.





It was so fun when I had about 50 of these little critters.  In hindsight, I should have bought one for me, one for you.  But, hey young and on a budget with three girls baskets to fill.

Now the kitchen table, I went all white and crystal here.  Raffia and twine for bedding, Lynn hates the plastic Easter grass stuff.  I think he really hates cleaning it up for about two months after Easter.  Kind of like Christmas tree needles, you find them forever.



A few more, candle light anyone?


I know, I am branching out with the candle light thingy. I REALLY need a better camera.






One more... and then watch for the mantel and front porch on a later post.  Enough already Lori!


Happy Easter, Lent and soon spring....

  4. Oh man I need to get a move on my spring decor. I did get rid of all my winter... but now I am in that mid-zone where there is nothing to do with anything! I need a few of your bunnies over here! I love the tall country rabbit, so beautiful and so unique. I would love her on my window sill above the sink!
