Birds Nesting

Well it’s Friday, the start of the weekend. I’m going to be busy putting away Easter. Oh what fun! I really don’t want to because it’s so early, but goodbye Easter bunnies and Easter eggs and Easter baskets. Now changing the subject because this is what I’m dealing with. I haven’t bought any hanging flower baskets yet because it has been so cold here. The birds usually build their nests in them. Well momma bird …

Easter Table Done in Blue and White

Good Friday! Well no meat today so I’m thinking we’ll have salmon with vegetables on the grill since the weather has finally warmed up a little here. Here we are with a blue and white Easter table setting. The place setting is all vintage Pottery Barn. The little eggs 🐣 I put in the egg cups are new and on sale they were at 40% off. I just love it! My little belly bunny 🐰 …

Easter White

White can really make a statement. These white baskets are filled with brown paper shred. They have eggs with letters spelling happy Easter. I stayed with neutral color palette mainly with the only exception of having a couple of blue bows around the bunnies. The cream colored eggs are wooden that I’ve painted. Despite it being spring, it is still chilly so I have the fireplace going while I sit and dream about warmer weather …

Easter Vignette

The wisteria is such a delicate flower. It is so soft looking with its little petals cascading down to make a beautiful long cone-like flower. The wispy foliage makes a statement as it sways in the wind. I’ve used a lot of silver in this grouping from the mercury vase filled with faux white tulips to the mercury catch pot that has a fern in it. Oh and don’t forget the silver candle off to …

White Blossoms for Easter

These white blossoms just scream spring. I tucked some blue easter grass into the mouth of the vase and tied a blue bow around it. The two wooden bunnies are watching over their egg. In the center of the buffet, the glass vase holds some purple Easter grass that compliments the lilac eggs. The feathers add some texture. The stained glass plate combines many shades of purple, silver, and blue brings together the vase with …

Wisteria Vine

OK, now understand, this is a project that should really have been done last year.  Finding someone to build something isn’t that easy.  Then the problem was that the foliage started to come in, and it was very hard to work around it.  So this had to be put off until now.  As you can see this had to be taken down.  The branch had started to wrap itself around my railing. So we had …

Pussywillows and Tulips 🌷🌷

As I do love purple and I like to add it in where ever possible. In this Tuscan vase I have tulips and pussywillows. The basket also has some pussywillows poking through and some white feathers. The lilac eggs in the basket are sitting on a bed of matching grass which is also sticking out of the Tuscan vase. There is some grass and feathers around the candle holders. Here on the chair the fur …

Egg-stra Purple Lantern

This cute lantern greets you as you come in the front door with a bunny and a large egg. I’ve added some purple grass and purple plastic eggs. On the top sits a sequined egg and some ribbon.  I love mixing ribbons together.  There are three different ribbons that make up this bow. Adding different color grass to a vase or bowl to go with your decor is a great way to add a little …

An Orchard Making a Statement

I just love this orchid. It’s vibrant color makes you want to get close to see if it is real. I am using it for the backdrop of this cute basket. I placed a little pot of tulips inside of it. Next, I added a little bunny. Then I placed a wooden egg that I painted with the paint from my living room wall and added some polka dots. Finally, I tied a blue ribbon …
