And I didn't change much on my coffee table arrangement. Just switched a couple of pieces to Easter decor & called it quits. I adore the carrot pillow on the chair in the background...it has beads on it. ;o) I got a pair of them @ TJ Maxx or Ross (can't remember which). The other one is on my sofa.
Remember the bone china bowls I found while thrifting recently? Here's one w/ a nest of shredded paper, eggs & an old postcard.
A framed piece of sheet music from the 40's that I have on my kitchen island. Last year, I featured this in a tablescape for a bunny fondue dinner. Fun... Fun! I'll share pics next week of that tablescape.
My mantel. I plan on painting the old mirror white but I haven't had it for long & I like to live w/ things for a while before changing them, to make sure that's what I want to do w/ them.
A treasured Easter photo of my kids. Still in it's tacky 80's frame! And that's exactly where it will remain! ;o)
My china cabinet in the living room. I have another stacked cake display on top but I'm not happy w/ it so I won't feature it in a photo. I store so many dishes in this china cabinet that I really should reinforce the shelves. I love this bunny on wheels!
I really love this old mantel topper/ bombe chest marriage. I've had the mantel topped for years & years & couldn't find a partner to it, to match the wood. Didn't want to paint it because the dark wood is just so beautiful. I finally found this bombe chest at auction recently. They look like they were made for each other!
My stacked cake plates. I wanted to feature my sugar eggs. I got them, separately, at thrift stores about 6 or 7 years ago. I'm gonna make some myself someday. Seriously....I am! You don't believe me? Neither does my husband. ;o) I've heard that you shouldn't handle them or or the oil from your skin discolors them but I don't have the heart to make them hands-off to the grands. I figured if they discolored, that I would just make a couple of my own. Anyway, after several years, and much grubby handling, they are still pristine.
I also used some chocolate egg tea-lights, faux chicks, mini-tree, a porcelain bunny & porcelain chicks & pearl necklaces in a jar. Love the vintage looking bunnys I got at Cracker Barrel last year @ 75% savings.
The inside of the large sugar egg. Cute! One of these days, I really am going to make one of my own.
Inside the itty-bitty egg . Don't ask me how I was able to get such a great shot! As my photos can attest, I am no photographer but this one turned out pretty dang good, huh?
This apothecary jar is on top of the mantel topper/ bombe chest. It has another old Easter postcard inside.
Hope you enjoyed my vignettes...would love to see yours!
