I debate whether I should even be doing this because my gadonka-donk butt and thunder thighs would be better served if I spent this time at the YMCA. But, for all my sistas who have cheered me up and provided me with a few laughs, I hope to return the favor by sharing a few of my favorite things that make me smile. May we continue to be inspired to serve our Lord, honor our country, and strive to be good children, spouses, mothers, employees and friends.
Today, I link with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Thanks for hosting one of my favorite blog parties, Susan! If you've read my blog (AT ALL), then you might have an inkling that I like to collect. (Ha, Ha!) So, I thought I'd show you some of my vintage Easter decor.
Let's take a look at the table.
The rabbit came from Home Goods and the "Happy Easter" sign came from Wal-mart,
a few years ago.
Do you spy a baby in this one?
My olden things have been collected over time. Some are salt and pepper shakers...
One is a pitcher (not the prettiest you'll ever see!).
And one is just plain ugly, but I 'adopted' it because it was soooo ugly, I felt sorry for it.
Some are just figurines...
I think I bought the egg cups at an antique store some years ago, but I'm not certain. The pink 'flower balls' came from Michael's this year.
I also used these little slag vases for egg holders.
I picked up the topiaries last year at GW for I think, $4 each. I think I intended to blog about them, but I believe I never got to it, once I found out I was pregnant. I had planned to paint the pots because the color just didn't do it for me; however, I foofed them up this year with the butterflies and ribbon, and I'm liking them a little better. What do you think, to paint or not to paint?
(Look, she's learning to Tablescape! LOL! We had to get her a toy laptop because she keeps trying to type on mine while I'm typing. Must be in her genes, huh? :)
The place settings...
salad plates - Garden Party by Spode
white plates - TJ Maxx, last year (no name on the back)
gold chargers - Wal-mart
silverware - Chateau by Oneida
green glasses - Target, this Easter
napkin rings - The Wacky Rabbit, Myrtle Beach, SC (I was told they have been discontinued)
I prefer to use paper napkins because...I'm a germaphobe and let's just say I have 'issues' with cloth napkins. LOL!
napkins - Home Goods
the rabbit candy dishes came from various places - 1 from Cracker Barrel, 2 from thrifts & I think 1 came from Target
everything else - I can't remember
And finally, our Easter table would be complete without...
I also want to thank Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch for having a tassel giveaway because I actually won it! Amazing! I also want to thank Angela, who has the Etsy store called The Tassel Housebecause she made the tassel and sponsored the giveaway. Isn't he cute?
Thanks for stopping by! I also want to thank those new Followers that have joined me! I use to go by and thank each one personally, but I'm not sure how to do that since they've changed the way 'Followers' is now. I don't get to post as often as I would like, but I will still post and visit as I get free time!
