Normally I do a Monday post about fashion but I've spent the weekend moving winter clothes out of the upstairs closet and spring/summer clothes in along with summer purses, scarves, and shoes. I have to admit that I'm tired of clothes right now and the last thing I want to do is get prettied up and pose for pictures. I don't even like doing that on a good day so I'm going with Spring Decor instead. Moving home accessories around is my passion and it's something I do on a pretty regular basis. Some people move furniture; I just move the little things. It's much easier and I don't need any help :)
I think my brother and his wife are having Easter dinner this year (hey, it's almost here; we better decide soon!) but I still like to play around with possibilities. If I don't have Easter, maybe I can convince Sheila and Ann and their hubbies to join us for a spring dinner. Rack of lamb sounds good, doesn't it?
The pink flowered Limoges china was handed down from Tom's grandmother. I've already told our niece, Betta, that it will be hers someday and she seemed happy to hear that. I've used pink and white striped towels as extra-large napkins and they're being held in place by white china bunny napkin rings. The flatware is Lunt Eloquence; clear crystal goblets are Fostoria Navarre paired with inexpensive pink wine glasses.
I found the ring of bunnies when I was a trainee working with the crystal and china buyer for Dayton's (now Macy's) back in the 70's. I fell in love with it and still drag it out of storage for Easter every year. They're sitting atop a grass-covered wooden table from Pottery Barn.
This is one of my favorites rabbits; it's kind of scruffy-looking and sweet. The glass domed stand is from Sur La Table several years ago.
Tea and dessert will be served from the side table.
I have a small collection of bird cages with the largest ones residing high up on plant shelves. This is one of the mid-sized ones, filled for the spring season with a Pottery Barn bird, grass, twigs, and eggs.
Just in case you can't tell what these are (my husband looked at the picture and couldn't figure it out), they're pewter rabbit spreaders.
Those are Pottery Barn eggs spelling out "Happy Easter." The jug is a fairly recent purchase from Home Goods and the glass dome with wicker tray just arrived from Decor Steals.
Two dozen roses are only about $16 at Costco so I like to buy them every week or so. There's nothing as lovely as fresh flowers in the house. I need to get some rose bushes in the garden so I can just walk outside and pick them! I have them on the small round table right next to my seat in the family room so I can smell them while I'm typing this.
Ever since I saw lambs gamboling in the English countryside and Scottish highlands as a child, I've had an affinity for them. Mmmm, I say that and at the same time, I just wrote about having lamb for Easter dinner. There's something wrong here...maybe I'll become a vegetarian.
This little sheep is being held captive in the second, smaller glass domed wicker tray from Decor Steals. I got introduced to Decor Steals from someone else's blog and it's become fairly addictive. The prices are great and shipping is very reasonable. Two birdcages showed up on the doorstep a couple of days ago and are waiting to be incorporated into the decor. Any ideas?
Have a lovely week, everyone! The weather is glorious here so if you're on Spring Break, head to Arizona!
