Hello, Dear Friends, I wanted to share
the rest of my Easter decorating before
the holiday was over, so I am back again today!
This post is photo-heavy, so grab a cuppa
and maybe a little snack :)
The unsettled weather gave us a beautiful rainbow
last night just before the sun set.
Today we have a clear view of Mt. Rainier,
but you can see the sky still has clouds,
although the sun is hazily shining through.
I might go outside and work in the gardens today,
if all goes well.
I clipped some forsythia and sweet box
from the garden to fill my vintage basket vase.
The rabbit is terra-cotta.
I framed a dear greeting card from my daughter
a few years ago.
It is a little work of art, made from
tiny cut papers. You can't see it,
but the eggs have glittered decorations.
A wider view - can you see the little lamb
on the glass egg?
The heart of my kitchen.
My table doubles as a large work station
for baking and cooking prep, as I have very little counter space :)
My vintage stove at the end.
I've always admired those kitchens
that have nothing on the counters
and no clutter.
But this is a hard-working, hand-built little kitchen,
and I like things within reach.
Looking the other way......
Through the green door......
My cupboard that houses my
pressed glass collection on top
and my cookbook collection
in the doors below, which is
already overflowing onto the shelves!
The sign on my wall.
I've shown this before.....
A little herd of sheep from Kathy's blog Etsy shop.....
safely out of reach from Kai :)
and a pressed glass egg.
The egg plate and footed dish were my Mother's
wedding gifts in 1953.
My hand-built hutch (by someone named Bruce
or E Ruce, in 1964), across from the daybed.
It was in a tiny cottage we rented in the
late 70's when we lived in Oregon.
The landlord gave it to us when we moved
in exchange for all the upgrades we made to the
tiny cottage :)
I later added the curtains and the decoupaged doors.
My remaining lamb is safely living up here now :)
The Beatrix Potter book - The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck.
Don't you love the name, 'Jemima' ?
And who doesn't love a puddle-duck! :)
This sweet box held a decorated egg :)
It's the center one. Two birds on a rose stem <3
The colored eggs are sidewalk chalk!
I love the dusky colors......
Vintage flocked bunnies
on my entry table.
My sweet Sis sent me the vintage table runner
all the way from New Hampshire :)
Sweet vintage style postcards are
actually from new scrapbook paper.
Painted wooden eggs and a sweet bunny box
from my daughter's childhood on my end table.
The round brass box on the dictionaries is a vintage compass.
My little settee gets the bunny treatment, too :)
I sewed these when my children were small.
My Mom made this little bunny
for my children when small.
Complete with paper 'cabbage' and
hand-sewn carrots :)
Tucked behind the settee is my
You CAN put all your eggs
in one basket :)
I love the picket fence baskets.
Another childhood relic.
I have a few indoor blooms for spring.
Indoor and outdoor blooms
to make me smile :)
Weenie Baby loves to photo-bomb!
I hope that you enjoyed my little house tour
and my Easter decorations, dear friends.
I am making some sweet gifts and
baking something special
for Easter and I will share those
with you later.
I am going outside for the day,
but I will catch up with you all tonight.
