Easter in My Foyer

Posted by on Mar 11, 2013 in easter, foyer | 10 comments

Easter decorating began last week at my house.

I had planned a day of errands and decorating for others.

As I dropped my oldest off at school, my dashboard started “dinging.”

I watched my oil pressure gauge drop to zero.

A quick call to my mechanic let me know that I could drive no farther.

(Did you know that if your oil pump goes out that you can burn your engine up if you drive any distance?

I did not.  So, I thought I would make sure that you knew!)

I left the keys in my car for the tow truck. . .

Flagged a friend down to take me home. . .

(My husband was out of town.)

I was trapped in my house for an entire day.

So, the decorating (and cleaning) began.

I must admit that a day at home was VERY productive.

I had not completed that much laundry in one day in years.

Bathrooms got cleaned.

Eggs found new homes in brass containers.

Furniture got dusted.

Chicks made their way out of the hutch and onto brass trays.

I ended up having a good day at home.

As productive as the day was, I did feel a bit trapped.

But, the work that got done was fantastic!

Maybe someone should take my keys away from me once a week. . .

By the way, my car will be ready in the morning!

  1. You really did it up great gal. Everything looks so pretty but not too much stuff. I’m gonna “borrow” some of your ideas. Love all your pretties. Great use of a “captured” day.
    Your little chicks look so cute on your brass tray.
    I got some really cute ceramic bunnies at Habitat and Goodwill last week, love em. Don’t know if I’m going to try to find my Easter box from past years or not. Now that I have a nice glass cloche like yours and my bunnies I’ll be having so much fun arranging new decorations on my faux mantel (shutter shelf).
    Got 2 new wire bird cages on sale lately also. Bought bead garlands to wrap around them and whatever else I want to after Easter. Been hitting Michaels and HL sales. Have fun gal. Happy March

  2. It sounds like you got a lot done, Melissa, so maybe not a total loss of the day. : ) Love all your vignettes. What are those potted plants in the tall narrow terracotta pots? Those are very interesting and I like the narrowness of the pots.

  3. Your entry way looks just beautiful. All the attention to detail is just fabulous… Down to the cute ribbons on the bunnies .. HUGS and have a blessed week . Sherry @ The Rusty Pearl

  4. so fun! i love the gate and love the bunnies! 🙂 some on spring get here already!

  5. It’s all lovely…I especially LOVE the vintage, metal frame you’ve repurposed here to display treasures! Found you thru the Knick Of Time Party. Stop by my blog if you get a chance!

  6. I think we all need a day a week like that! Beautiful as always Melissa!

  7. Wow, what a productive day you had! You are ready for the Easter bunny for sure. Love all your sweet touches, just the right amount.

  8. Love your Peter’s Pottery rabbits! I have a few myself, and they are among my favorites.

  9. Love all your spring touches !

  10. Link exchange is nothing else but it is just placing the other person’s weblog link on your page at proper place and other person will also
    do similar in support of you.
