so ready for spring

I can't complain as our winter has been pretty mild but I am so anxious for spring to get here.  Our little bit of warm weather last week when it got to be 60 has got me unpacking some Easter and spring decorations.  I have to admit that for quite a while I haven't decorated much for the holidays so for many years the Easter decorations stayed in their boxes.  I won't probably get everything out this year either but a few things for the center of the table will be fun.

A few weeks ago when going thru my fabric stash--it has been a few years since I have done much sewing too-- I found some fabrics in pinks and blues.  I cannot even remember what it was intended for but I decided to make a table runner out of it.  The runner is finished.

 It holds the kids' bunnies, made by their Grandma Rose when they were small.

It holds the eggs.

New this year is a tiny banner that says SPRING.  The eggs are plastic, but if the kids are home and we color some eggs I will swap them out for real ones.

It holds the tea set.

And stacked at the end of the table the Easter dishes.

 I am pretty sure that last time that I used these there was the right amount for the number in my family.  Now the family is bigger and if everyone was at the farm we would need more.  I will have to keep a look out for more of the same or something that coordinates.

I have four egg cups.

And four plates, each a different color with a different bunny in the center.

  1. So cute! I love the color of the teapot! It is almost Easter! It's so early this year. xoxo Su

    1. Thanks Su,I haven't decorated for Easter in years so it was fun to dig through the boxes to remember what I had.

  2. Oh my goodness, Lorri, I'll take one of everything...especially those egg cups and that wee little banner (you know that's my weakness!). I am so impressed with your runner. That is not merely sewing...I sew...that is artwork. Farmer, crafter, cook and seamstress extraordinaire? Is there anything you can't do?

    1. Oh Kim, you are so cute. Thanks you. I have extra banner parts. If you email me your address i will mail you one. :)
