About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

Easter Tablescape and Three or More Tuesday

I got the inspiration for my Easter tablescape from this blue and purple scarf from Target. Don't you think it makes a nice tablerunner? I wanted a soft look so I bunched it up so it would drape nicely. The bunny figurine is acually a candleholder, but I preferred it holding an egg. Thrifty people find ways to be resourceful..... LOL The milk glass dishes belonged to my mother and she passed them down to me shortly after I moved into my new home. All those empty cupboards bothered her, can I tell you? I have place settings for four and want to expand to six or eight so that I can enjoy them in my dining room as well. The bunny cupcakes came from Pier 1's Easter clearance sale. Aren't they adorable? They are very realistic and look good enough to eat. Doubleclick on the pics to see the detail.


Here's another view of that cute bunny sitting atop the cupcake.... The marble bunny standing guard in the background came from Tuesday Morning. Thanks, Joe, ;-)

My kitchen table was my great aunt Clara's. It didn't have a durable finish on the top and after several water rings appeared, I painted it flat black as a temporary fix. Several years later, I've grown to really like the look of it. One of these days I'll get around to stripping the finish and redoing the entire table. One day..... ;-)
I picked up the tall bunny for a song off the clearance table at Old Time Pottery last summer. It's amazing what great buys you can find off season. The smaller bunny is fashioned from an old wooden spool. I've had it for years.


Here's a closeup of the bunnies and apothecary jars filled with pastel eggs. Do those eggs qualify for Three or More Tuesday?????


Did you notice the basket of bunnies in the last picture? Believe it or not, those bunnies are fashioned from a cotton garden glove. Each finger is stuffed with batting to form the bunnies' bodies. Here's a better shot of them. Those bunnies have been around since my kids were babies. My sweet mother-in-law made them many years ago. Now they stand guard over the grandkids....


Here's one last shot of my Easter tablescape. Hope you enjoyed it. I love to read my comments so pllllllleeeaassseee leave me one. HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE!!!!!

    What a great little bunny basket. I saw a young mom on here last week that took a new funky pink colored one and cut it up and made a flower out of the fingers for a pin or something. Wow, peeps are so creative.

    Your table is adorable and I'd love to sit there and have a bite with ya. I'd be looking at and playing with and talking to all the bunnies. lol
