In a recent post, I shared some Easter vignettes, and I asked my readers if “vignetting” should be a word. Since so many agreed with me that it should be, I’m still Easter vignetting. Spring chicks have taken over the china cabinet in our kitchen.

Yikes! I was going to post all of the Easter decorations at my house, and all of a sudden, Easter is almost here! That’s why I am posting several table top vignettes today.
Last year, I “crafted” this little Easter shadow box. It’s under a cloche this year.
Some of my Easter bunnies know that we are still having winter temperatures.
I am linking to Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life. I hope you’ll come back to see my Easter tablescapes Wednesday night. Thank you for checking out my blog post. laurie

My sweetheart accuses me of wanting a little weekend getaway place, just so I can decorate it. I think he may be right. I obviously wanted a fireplace, so I could decorate the mantel.
Now that at I’ve been blogging for a few years, I realize that I should have blogged for about five years before naming my blog.
When I posted my first blog post, 3 1/2 years ago, I titled my blog “Bargain Hunting with Laurie”. (It may have been that first Easter of blogging when every blog I visited had at least one of those flying bunnies from Pier One. I’m still using mine.)
I don’t remember how long I’d been blogging, when I decided I should have named my blog “Chatting With Laurie”. I’m sure you haven’t noticed, but I do love chatting (maybe more than bargain hunting!) .
So, I changed my blog name to “Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie”. (I didn’t want to lose the notoriety I had built with the previous blog name, so kept the “Bargain Hunting~you can stop laughing now!)
I now realize, my blog name should have been “Laurie’s Mantels”, because I post my mantel re-dos more than anything else. But, since I don’t want to lose my notoriety (stop laughing), I guess it will remain Bargain Hunting and Chatting. (How about Bargain Hunting, Chatting, and Mantel Changing”? Too much?)
I’m linking this “Laurie’s Mantel” post to the Egg-xellent Spring Party (Isn’t that a clever party name? Barb’s sooo clever) at Grits and Glamour. Be sure you go get links to egg-xellent mantels all around Blogville. Thank you for coming by to see another mantel change at my blog. laurie
