Mother's Day Blessings

With Mother's Day this Sunday
it was about time to put away Easter
and pay tribute to all the Mothers in our lives.

My hall sideboard is my favorite to decorate
 because each month it is wiped clean
and I start from "scratch".

This area is hard to photo
since there is no direct lighting,
and the stairway is immediately in front.
(think...hanging from a chandelier)

But it is one of my favorites to view
because I see it from my kitchen.
So, like the sunroom, it's changed up frequently.

 I have a collection of Mother's Day framed verses,
(yes, I know, another collection)
but most special are my prints
 from the artist Mary Gold,
which signed her work "marygold".

Roses, flower bouquets, ironstone, and old linens,
 bring the nostalgia of Mother's Day past to life.

This little lady reminds me of the print.

Broken but not discarded...
like so many of us,
we find a place of joy and redemption
with our children.

I'll be sharing more of this wonderful
vintage flower album later.

And if you look closely
your will see the word "Mother"
embroidered on this lovely linen towel.

I'll leave you with this passage from Proverbs.

Proverbs 31:25-30

25. Strength and dignity are her clothing, And she smiles at the future. 26. She opens her mouth in wisdom, And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. 27. She looks well to the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness. 28. Her children rise up and bless her; Her husband [also], and he praises her, [saying]: 29. "Many daughters have done nobly, But you excel them all." 30. Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, [But] a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.

And a small note about my mysterious news.
I can't wait any longer...

Sunday evening I will be introducing
The Seed Box "Shop Blog"
that I will be doing for Brian and Meloney Russell.

(remember the wonderful Garden House)

Please come back Sunday Evening
 as I link up and publish our first post.

Love and blessings for all the Mothers.
Have a beautiful week!

Gardening Day for Easter

This time of year I'm always desperate for something "green". After months of gray skies and brown grass, I ran to Lowe's last week for a little garden "fix". I found these wonderful yellow tulips and bought some for myself and both of the girls who we will see tomorrow, Easter Sunday.

If you look closely you'll see
I'm not the only one enjoying them.

Right now I have them in the sunroom
in an old ice cream maker bucket,
 but as soon as the bloom is gone
I'll be planting them out front.

Hope you have a wonderful Easter!

Easter Cloches

I hope you can stand enjoy
just one more Easter Decor post.
I didn't realize I had so many things,
 until I started going through
my cupboards and bringing it all out.

You all know I'm just a "Holiday" kind a gal.

I've been saving a few little friends
 for the Cloche Party at Marty's.
I found these at a friend's booth
 at Spring Creek a few weeks ago.
Old chalk Easter rabbits and a chicken.
I scooped them all up as she was just putting them out.
Oh yeah, right place, right time!

This is my German glass glitter rabbit that I found
a few weeks ago at my friend Kristi's space
(you'll get to meet her soon)

I had to buy three,
one each for my daughters...
and of course one for moi.

He's one of my new Favorite Things.

and of course "Sweetface" has to be
 included in every Cloche Party.
He's a little spoiled, you know what I mean?

I couldn't leave him out of Show and Tell!

And of course Spring isn't Spring
unless I have a bird-nest...
(or ten)

I stacked my wire flower frogs up,
then thought they looked like a wedding cake.

This little fella appears to have been
trapped by a Bird Nest cloche.

Hope he has some chocolate in his little basket.
I might let him loose for that!

And to celebrate Good Friday and Easter,
I have my Vintage Black Bible
 from my grade school years.
with a bottle I altered.

(here's the Royal Treatment Give Away Crown!)

Sending hugs and blessings
for a wonderful Easter Weekend!

Easter Decor Day on White Wednesday

All the white Easter Decor is showing off today.

I found this wonderful vintage-look bunny plaque
at one of my favorite stores,

And here is one of my flock
from the Dining Room.

This old print in the original frame is called
"Rabbit's Snowy Day".

Oh My Gosh, look at their tails!

The gang's all here!

And my "Holiday Cupboard" that gets dressed
in whatever holiday that is at hand.

This month it's filled with white Easter decor.

Love my little Velveteen Rabbit.
He looks a little shy.

These poor babies have had all their ears
broken off, one time or another.

And more woolly, happy sheep.

Today, I'm linking up with my must-do party,
White Wednesday
with the wonderful Kathleen from Faded Charm.

And today is Easter Decor Day

Have a wonderful Easter Week!
