my Easter stuff
I can't believe I held up for TWO days of shopping. LOL. The antique malls across town were kind of
disappointing. I haven't been to those in around two years. The one has really changed and not even
interesting now. The other one was about same as in past, but can't hold candle to the big one near me I love to go to. I found was a special little rabbit I've wanted for my collection for years, but that's all. I did
really enjoy lunch and the browsing tho, and spending the afternoon with two friends. The one I rarely get to see as she lives an hour from me and I can't drive to her place.
On Friday, my DD took the afternoon off work and took me to Home Goods, Kirklands, Hobby Lobby, and Michaels!! WOW. Plus we had lunch first. What a great time I had with her!! My body let me act like a normal person the whole time! LOL. She said I'm like one of those little "wind-up toys". Just turn me on and let me go....but when I stop, I topple over and am done for.
I think she's right! ;o) She got me lots of stuff from for my b.d. Some things are not pictured, for Dad's room I'm redoing. (and my oldest son gave me a Michaels gift card, so I have more shopping to do with it.)
So here's a few decor goodies I got. Hobby Lobby's Easter stuff was already really picked over. But there were two bags of these wicker eggs and I really liked them!
and these two lovely bunny things
At Michaels I found these pretty bunny ornaments, tho I took the ribbons off. They are heavy ceramic and I'll just sit them somewhere. The three little birds were found at Kirklands. And surprisingly, the Fall ACORN dish too!!
Jas and my darling DDIL sent me these flowers on my b.d. Suz always makes sure I get flowers since DH doesn't buy them. And she always makes sure there are purple flowers in the arrangements, AND requests the vase be purple or lavender! What a girl, huh!! They did so much for my birthday, really spoiled me. Dinner, gift card to Home Depot, and TWO of those pre-lit twig arrangements! (one I am using in an Easter arrangement right now.)
I am done, I think, with my Easter decorating. Quite a bit I have repacked and can't use this time. But I
I've decorated enough and am satisfied. Bay window, kitchen counters, bathroom counter, entry way, Family-room, and front porch. I've added the link to my album for you to see what I did, 28 photos.
Oh, I was getting some candles at Home Goods and saw one of those metal 'candle trees' I've wanted. Then when I went to get little tea-lights for it, I was thrilled to see some with little birds on them! You'll see a close-up in my album of Easter decorations. I got the lgt green ones. (Michaels had the bird tea-lights too, theirs were white and larger birds. I may have to get some of them too, don't know why I didn't yesterday!)
I found these bunny lights on eBay and 'had' to have them. Not sure if they are old, but I've never seen them before.
