I had a hard time posting favorites this week, because I’ve had a tough week. My beloved dog, Elsie, an English Setter, was hit by a car Tuesday evening. It was touch-and-go for a couple of days, but the vet told me Thursday that she is “out of the woods", and that she may be able to come home early next week. I haven’t slept well, and I haven’t been able to concentrate on much other than my “baby”. But today, I can breath again (and even focus on something~well, I can focus as much as I’m ever able to focus!)
A couple of weeks ago, I went on a road trip ~ just me and Tom (if you didn’t read about Tom in a previous post, he is my new love ~ a navigation gadget that has given me the freedom of the roads! I am navigationally challenged in a big way!) I went to visit my friend, Susie, and I had SO MUCH FUN visiting and shopping with her.
One of this week’s favorites is this sweet little tureen that Susie showed me when we were scouring a flea market. Susie is such an enabler. She knew if I saw him, he’d come home with me.
Just look at this sweet face.
Another of this week’s favorites is my Quimper egg cup basket that I ordered from Brittany Byways. It’s old and chippy ~ probably not in good enough shape to actually use to serve eggs, but it works great for displaying faux Easter eggs.
The idea was to be able to carry the basket to the table; then remove each individual egg cup to serve the eggs.
Another Easter favorite is this White House Easter egg that I bought at an Estate sale back in the Fall. I think I paid $2.00 for it, which was a pricey egg for me, but I don’t think I’ll ever make it to the White House Egg Roll, and this way I can pretend that I found this on the White House lawn.
My Easter plate, which was a gift from Susie, is another favorite.
Another gift from Susie is this adorable Easter banner. I know when I’m going to visit someone, I should take a hostess gift, and I do, but I can’t compete with Susie, because guests get showered with fabulous gifts when they visit her!
The bunny in a cart was a purchase at a “going out of business” sale at a gift store several years ago.
When I posted my St. Patrick’s table, several of you asked about the “grass” I used on the table (which is what I’ve also used in these Easter vignettes). I ordered these tissue paper grass mats from D. Blümchen & Company. This is the way it looks when it arrives
After spreading it out, it can be cut to fit whatever space you desire.
