PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!

So I thought Easter Day would be a good time to decorate for Easter. *shrug*
Started with my dining nook:
I'm forever at a loss as to what to hang on those pegs. For some reason, inspiration struck as I was looking at my loverly aqua mason jars, filled at the time with stones and chunky votives. Added some twine and deep pink tulips. Me likey.
Had a leftover bud, so used a narrow-mouthed jar I picked up at JoAnn's for a simple centerpiece on my burlap ruffled runner.
My hutch got birdified too. Birds say spring to me.
And temps over 60, but let's not go there. *rolling eyes*
Any ideas for that set of 4 wee cloches? Thinking a piece of dog food under each doesn't really make a statement of beauty, but ya know, to each his own.
My salt and pepper birdies perched inside the divine brown transferware I got from Polly.
Moving to the family room, I did over my fireplace and mantle using my plethora (yes, I love that word) of birdie paraphenalia.
Filled my apothecary jars with real and fake nests and eggs.
These are fake, but they look like candy-coated chocolate eggs, so I loves them.
Low calorie eye-fest.
These are real quail eggs. Unbelieveably delicate and beautiful!
Fake eggs, real nest. Shhhhh.
I *needed* these wee blue birds. I didn't need the fake eggs, but they look cute tucked in there,
This is just a covered cake plate I picked up at TJMarshalls or some such discount home store. The blocks were won during a giveaway at Annie's Birdcages and Butterflies last year.
Tall cage thing from a long time ago....stuck some of the rocks from the mason jars in there to support a pretty candle. Birdie votive holder is a spraypainted dollar store find.
I pretty sure everyone in blogsphere has some.
More fakies, but who's counting at this point?
More birds with fake eggs. I have a problem.
Dollar store (where else?) birds I spray painted.
The candlesticks were ones I made awhile ago using Restore supplies.
This beautiful print was made by my daughter Maddie. It was a project for one of her graphic design classes. I begged her for it, and she had it mounted and framed for my birthday.
Yes, I have awesomely talented and thoughtful kids with great taste.
Oh, and the wee wreath I made by hot gluing fake flower heads to a mini grapevine wreath. I actually made two, but haven't decided where to use the second one yet. I'll prolly know by July 4th.
So there ya have it. Easter decor done on Easter day. It should hold up for another month or so, then out come the seashells and sanddollars.
OH, and if you're following along my shrinking journey, I just posted my 4 month progress report over at my other blog:
