|This amazing book came from my brother Greg and Elizabeth.|
He heard about it on NPR and knew I would love it. I do!

going to waste, he relaxed while I puttered. I was in the basement organizing some boxes and the tree bag that got shoved into the crawl space when our sump pump broke down. I was so happy to have a crawl space to store my "junk" when we first moved in. That was 24 years ago. I was a young woman back then and could scoot around on one of the kids skateboards. ( It's not high enough to stand up in.) Now I prefer to keep my boxes out of the crawlspace where I can easily reach them.
I am loving the miniature lamb mold.
Sidewalk chalk eggs.
Having a love affair with Muscari,
otherwise known as grape hyacinths
So many pretty silk flowers out there I use over and over, year after year.
Things are getting gussied up for spring.
Sometimes it's just changing up something in the cloches.
Here is a pretty new vase from Jon and Charlotte. A Crate and Barrel gift card.
I am really surprised that it took me till March to use these gifts.
Once again reusing some flowers .
She wasn't sure I would like it. If Elizabeth likes it, I will like it and vice versa.
More paper flowers. These from a kit from Paper Source the last time the
Midwest Bloggers met in Naperville.
My mantle in the family room.
A gloomy day today, but it's colorful and has the Penny seal of approval.
She said, and I quote, 'It's so cute!"
Everyone of these bunnies is thrifted or a gift.
I did buy the topiary bunny maybe 20 years ago.
A bunny cake mold. I have no luck actually making cakes in a mold like this.
That banner was a gift from our friend Audrey. She came to brunch one Easter and said she thought of me when she saw it in the store. I love when things have a sweet memory attached,
and so many of mine do.
You might have noticed the fence. I saw someone use it on a facebook post. It's from the dollar store and she sprayed it white.
So I did too.
It looked like this before.
Now for the complete picture. What we have here is a seasonal MESS!
I have a few weeks till our annual Easter brunch.
Stuff on every table.
Bags of flowers, storage boxes.
Yes a strand of Christmas lights. In my defense, I used them for Valentines Day.
I do have several bags for donations and a basket full of stuff for Kris and Penny. I might add a clean cabinet with all my candle holders and battery operated candles put away. A better organized crawl space. I moved things with a golf club! The most important thing, a rested hubby, feeling better and he enjoyed watching the seasons change from his comfy chair.
...And the laundry waits!
Thanks so much for visiting and for your kindness.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
