Church Pew's New Home in the Garden Room

The church pew had been banished to the basement at the old house along with the rest of the group of white chippy misfits that didn't make the "upstairs" cut. I'd thought about selling it, but never could bring myself to do it... so glad I didn't.

I'd hoped I would have room at the new house for it and the rest of it's crew. The Garden Room/Sunroom turned out to be the perfect place. This brick wall is the back side of the chimney (in the Hearth Room) which originally had been outside on the patio. When the previous owners added on the sunroom they left it as is, which makes a great backdrop for the old church pew.

You've seen the wicker seating area and the casual dining area,
but I haven't shown you this one little spot yet. 

The glare is pretty bad out here because of the French/sliding doors, so no matter which direction you take a pic from, it reflects in the glass. If there hadn't been a huge nail already there, this framed print wouldn't be hanging. We haven't gotten to hanging wall art yet. Last week was all about the yard, installing new outside lighting and working to straighten up/ be able to walk thru the garage. Maybe we'll have a rainy weekend so we can get busy on that.

This white trunk which holds art supplies was under the sofa table at the last house.

I've used a white matelasse coverlet on this since it's not in great shape 
and then change out the pillows seasonally.

I found this print late last summer when we first put a contract on the house. I needed another big print like I needed a hole in the head, but that didn't stop me. The colors are gorgeous and it fits right in to the Garden Room theme.

Here's a better pic from last year with less glare.

Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. They said that it was the first Easter Sunday here that wasn't rainy and cold for 13 years. It was beautiful, the perfect day!

Spring Vignette on the Cupboard Top

I really enjoy having a flat surface to decorate for the seasons. At the previous house I had the kitchen china cupboard in my Kitchen Sitting Area that I used for seasonal change ups. We moved the cupboard over here, but because it's in a different area with a window behind it, it doesn't work well to decorate with seasonal decor.

Moss Covered Cross in the Entry

For all the adorable bunnies, chicks, and eggs that we have fun decorating with for Spring and Easter, I never want to forget the real meaning of this holiday, which is Resurrection Sunday. I like to keep the Entry a place where I can share my faith and have a reminder of the seriousness and solemnity of this sacred time.

Hop Into Easter

Hello Everyone! I have to tell you that this is a special day for me being able to join in on this fun Spring Blog Hop. This last year has been a difficult time due to health issues and a major move. So being able to participate makes me feel like life may be getting back to normal. I'm so glad you're here to help me celebrate! Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home is our talented hostess for this Easter Hop. Thankyou Amber for inviting me along.

An Easter Mantel in the Hearth Room

I haven't gone all out for Spring and Easter decor this year because I really don't have a lot of my dishes and seasonal pottery unpacked. Back in August when I started packing up all the seasonal dishes and decor I had no concept that we wouldn't be fully moved in until Spring. It's probably a good thing that I was ignorant, otherwise I've had been even more stressed out about the whole process.

Spring Inspiration

While I'm working at our old house, trying to go through what's left of household goods that need to be donated, I thought I'd go back and share some Spring and Easter past pics. I don't have most of my vintage dishes and Spring items at the new house yet, so "Spring and Easter" are still a little sparse. Seeing these photos have reminded me of everything that's still packed away. sigh....
