IT REALLY IS NOT ANOTHER MANTEL!

In my previous post, I told you that I love having a mantel to decorate.  I love it so much that I treat other things in our home as if they were mantels.

This really is my piano, which is in the study in our home.

While I’m in the study with my camera, I’ll show you our bookcase (which houses a lot of things other than books).  This case is already sooo cluttered inside, but I have cluttered it even more by adding Easter décor outside the cabinet.

I just hope I don’t have to get anything from inside this cabinet before Easter!

Credits:

On the piano:  Small glittered houses were purchased last year from Celestina Marie’s Etsy; Bunny tags with the cute cotton tails (which you may have also noticed on my real mantel in the previous post)  were purchased a couple of years ago from Lynn at the Vintage Nest.  The two little boxes I decorated were purchased at an estate sale.  Each contained a deck of playing cards.

On the bookcase:  Glittered bunny standing under a floral limb was from Karen Harvey Cox at A Scrapbook of Inspiration last year. 

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I love having visitors.  laurie

I thought your piano was your mantel at first. Love your Easter collection. I spied plaid lampshades on your piano! I'm having my first linky party, hopefully, if I can figure it out. For National Tartan Day. I know you have tartan! Happy weekend to you!

Your Easter decor is wonderful. I must say I didn't do a lot this year. Other things going on, but I have a few bunnies out I will share soon. Hugs, Linda

Debbie said...

Wow.
Just plain out wow.

I love this. My very favorite things are the little box/book looking things with the sheet music in them. I just love that.

Sue said...

Laurie, I love how you have all those cards hanging in front of your bookcase. And I LOVE the bunny banner made from sheet music on the piano! Just too cute. I bet the grands just love seeing all of this. Your house is always so festively decorated for the holidays. hugs, Sue

Laurie, you are always so amazing. I just love every little touch. How long does it take? The cute little bunnies out of music are something I would love to get around to doing. So many fabulous ideas - so little time!

Debbie Booth said...

Hi Laurie, you are amazing. What wonderful decorations! I was thinking of you the other day
and told my husband about your Holiday closet.
Told him I was thinking I needed one. He chuckled
and said the Barn was available. Not quite
what I had in mind! Hahahaha...
Your home looks beautiful. Have a wonderful
Easter.
Blessings,
Debbie
