Easter and Spring

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

I've gotten so I really don't decorate too much for holidays but I always have something going on in my entryway.
No matter the season or holiday we usually have candy in this jar. Everyone dips into this jar from time to time, even guests (like Mason's friends). This jar reminded me of my colored vintage Christmas balls hiding in the closet.
I decided that I loved these vintage balls too much to put them in a closet for 10 1/2 months out of the year. So I removed the red and green and found mostly pastelish colors. I put them in this jar and have them on my entryway side board. I may never put them away. I'm thinking of red, white and blue Christmas balls for summer.
See how pretty they look. I feel like starting a movement to get those beautiful vintage glass balls out of every closet and into the decor of the home where they can be admired and enjoyed.
I put a few things on my 3 tired plate set that remind me of spring or Easter. I had these funny little vintage Easter bunnies that I wired onto the rack to hop along the bunny trail.
And since it is spring I put up my April Showers umbrella quilt. This is one of my all time classic quilts that is now probably 8-9 years old. It is an original pattern. I've never seen anything like it anywhere. I think it is so unique.

Enough about me. Are you ready for Easter? We plan coloring and hiding eggs with Allison this weekend. Fun.
