Hippity Hoppity...































Easter will soon be on its way! Got some of my Easter decor out...I don't have tons. I admit I am not a big pastel girl. Especially pinks and yellows. LOVE greens & blues. I embraced it as well as I could though. Here is the outcome in this area. Placed my cake stand here for now. I think it will eventually end up in my craft room. My chalk ware duckies needed a little something so I made little Easter greeting tags for their necks. I put my tiny little chalk ware sheep under a little cloche. I love my old Whitman framed print..got it for a whoppin 1.00 at a garage sale...AND the cool thing is I have my Mom's antique Whitman candy tin (you can see it in one of the pics). I moved the SPRING banner in here as well. Well hope to share a few more Easter areas in the next few days. I am off to TRY to finish dear sonny boy's room. "I think I can, I think I can". XOXO, cherry

MeganSloan said...

I love the whole thing! I can't find a favorite...although I do love the cake stand! And those ducks are just precious. And of course, I'm jealous of the stars. Some day I will have some stars. :)

Deb said...

Love it all, you definitely brought the season to life! Your spring banner looks lovely there. I sat down with all my materials to make mine tonight....and put them all away. I just wasn't feeling the inspiration tonight so I'll try again tomorrow. Seeing your pictures is helping though! :)

Hey Cherry! I just got your comment. If you click on Dave and Busters in the post it will take you to their site. See if you have one near you~ it is a fun place! Yummy food and a huge gaming arcade atached. But not like a kiddie place~ they often host corporate 'team building' sessions at ours! Oooh, you had asked about the camera, too. I have a Nikon D40. It is big so I also have a small 'toss in the diaper bag and go' camera that I have yet to upload pics from to blog so we'll see if they're as good as the bigger camera pics! I do love the Nikon though~ it's my 3rd baby!!! Good to hear from you hun! Have a super terrific day!
Hugs, Les

Oh, Cherry!
Everything is just precious! OF course!
I hear you, I'm not much of a pastel girl (anymore) either. I do love the greens and robin's egg blues, though. I've even incorporated them in our brown kitchen. But red...... ahhh - red.... where would the world be without this glorious color?!?!? Too dramatic? Sorry, but I just love that color!!!
Many Blessings,
Julie
