I Love Easter Time!

Welcome to our home! Happy Easter to You!Isn't this door fantabulous! You won't believe where I got it. ~Bunnies & Birdies ~ So Sweet~
Here's a little vignette on our old mahogany buffet. I love gathering things together that are special to me. This picture of Christ with the Children is one of my favorites! It is so full of love! Easter is definitely all about love!
I enjoy mixing things together! Such as, the stack of aqua glass plates surrounded by a grapevine wreath with pretty bird and colorful egg topiary on top.
Imagine for a moment that You are in this picture with Jesus loving and blessing You! It is a very touching thought for me.
I have been putting ribbons on candles for a very long time. It's a fun way to decorate and bring some of your decor color onto them. On these candles I added some dimensional scrapbooking stickers for some extra bling. The candle holders were purchased at a second hand store. They used to be gold, but with a little spray paint they are now this beautiful off-white color.
Help yourself to a malted egg! I chose the blue and white ones out of the bag for some funny reason! They are very pretty & yummy too!

Another easy decorating idea is a lovely stack of various plates!

You are probably wondering why a photo ablum is in the kitchen??? Well, it is actually full of many of my favorite recipes!

I thought I would share with you this shelf that my Handsome Honey made for me out of scraps! I painted it blue and put some wonderful brown glaze on it. I decided to put a little curtain on the bottom to hide the array of music & hymn books that are kept there.
I really, really like this beautiful fabric! I bought it at Savers for $1.00. What a happy moment. I covered an empty hot cocoa container with it too and glued on some flowers in 2 different shades of blue. I think it's okie dokie if the blues are not all matching exactly.
Live for today! Hope for tomorrow!

Positive thoughts around the house are good for the soul!
I have loved baskets my whole life! I don't know why really. These 2 pretties have an added feature ~ lapel pins. The round swirly one was gold, but you know what I did to it! (oil-rubbed bronze).
Now we come to my very favorite thing on this whole shelf! This is a picture that our kids took last year and gave to me for Mothers Day. I sure love them all!

Decorator note ~ Our daughter, Crystal, asked everyone to wear blue, brown or white for the photo so that it would coordinate with my home decor! She's so thoughtful
Bye for now & With Love ~*~Lynda~*~
