Easter Tablescapes

How will you set your table for Easter?

Easter Sunshine 141

Will it be full of light and sunshine?

Rabbit warren 001

Perhaps you’ll be nesting?


Or will it be a sparkling Easter table?

Rustic Rabbits Easter Tablescape - The Tablescaper04

Maybe one a bit more rustic?

Vibrant Easter Tablescape - The Tablescaper18

One filled with vibrant color?

Or something more formal?

However you set your table I hope you are gathered round your Easter table with those you love.

Senior Tea 2013 087

Thankfully, the white stuff outside (well, at this point it’s all rather gray)…

Senior Tea 2013 081

…is finally starting to melt.

Senior Tea 2013 075

I am happily bidding it adieu.

Senior Tea 2013 084

At the moment, I much prefer…

Senior Tea 2013 092

…the whites in my home…

…rather than the ones outside.

Senior Tea 2013 094

Hope it’s melting by you too!

When Irish Eyes are Smiling

St. Patrick’s day is just around the corner.

Budding of Spring 004

I love being able to bring out little treasures from season to season. This little vase was my Mother-in-law’s. Unfortunately I never got to meet her. She was a music teacher and far from Irish.  I imagine that this vase was a gift from one of her students. How special that she kept it through the years. How neat that I’m now it’s caretaker.

A Valentine Cupboard

A truly love my home and the way I have decorated it however, I always wish I had room for a Welsh dresser.

I love seeing beautiful dishes artfully displayed against the warmth of a Welsh dresser.

Not too bad

Thankfully Snowstorm Juno was not too bad for us.

January Snow Storm Juno 011

We got about 11 inches of snow, on the low end of the predictions for our area. No complaints from us!

Winter Storm Juno

After surviving Sandy, the prospect of surviving Juno is a bit daunting. Sandy left us for ten days without power. I must admit I had met my limit and am a bit inhibited about what could be before us.

Breathing New Life into an Old Collection

Many of us have collections that we ourselves acquired or may have inherited. I love when I can breath new life into an old collection.
