Y’all know that I am normally a “clutterist” (as opposed to minimalist).  When we are celebrating a holiday, the clutterist in me gets a little carried away, because I just add holiday stuff to my already junky cluttered shelves!

I hope my vintage postcards (which are hanging from a ribbon in front of my family room shelves) and my tacky vintage Easter décor (which is on a shelf in my sunroom) will qualify this post for
thrifty things fri(most of the vintage décor on the shelf in the sunroom is from my childhood, and the postcards were less than a dollar, so I consider those thrifty things), 
and since, unfortunately, things from my childhood are vintage now, I hope this post qualifies for:

Dear Laurie,
I love your Yellow and Blue plates. They are so pretty. And you sure have lots of bunnies...
Hope to link up this Saturday..see you then..

Glenda/MidSouth said...

I always enjoy seeing your clutter! :-D The bunnies and egg topiary is so cute. I have done very little decorating for Spring/Easter this year - to much other going on. I have not decided on an Easter menu yet - I need to get busy.
More bad weather tomorrow night into Wed. morning. :(
Have a great week.

Well, if you are a clutterist, I'm right there with you! ;) The only difference between you and I is that YOU have energy and put out all of your cute treasures for every holiday. I am a LAZY clutterist and have no energy to do that, so all my clutter is around to the left and around the right and in front and back! ;)
All of your Easter things do look lovely, Laurie!

Olive said...

More is more for me too Laurie. I love the blue and yellow dishes. Happy Easter. ♥O

Hi Laurie! You have the most wonderful pretties! You're the queen of pretties and I love how you display your pretties.
You are a sweetie,

Hmmm, I have always called the things lying around my house "clutter". However, looking at your whimsical, charming, colorful, and seasonal "clutter", I realize I have been using the wrong word. You have clutter, I just have a MESS! :)

Savannah Granny said...

Sweet lady, I would say that with all the treasures you have you would qualify for any party you may wish to join. I don't call it clutter. Sweetheart THOSE are treasures.
I know what you mean about vintage. It is a funny feeling when almost anything you have is vintage. I think vintage kinda sneaked up on me.
Thanks for visiting Savannah's Botanical Garden. i will take lots of pics during the show and share. Thanks again.
Did you get the email is sent to you about Mom of a German Short Hair?
Hugs, Ginger

Oh all of your Easter treasures are just beautiful! I love that egg topiary. It is awesome!!

Tardevil said...

I love the term 'clutterist' being that I'm qualified for that title. Maybe we can start the Sista Clutterist club! I think your 'clutter' is perfect just the way it is. Really like the bunny garland and old postcards. Have a happy Easter!

Martha's Favorites said...

A Clutterist! I love it. I call myself a Serial Collector. I like Clutterist. Your clutter is wonderful. I love all of it. Thank you for sharing your beautiful things with us. Blessings, Martha

Debbie said...

You call it clutter, but it's really eye candy inspiration to me. My favorite thing of all is the bunny banner. I LOVE that!

It makes me want to run out to HL and get paper to copy it. Maybe I'll get a chance between now and the weekend before it's too late.

Unknown said...

Holy Schmoly! I decided last week that it was getting too late to fuss with my Easter decor so I pass this year, then I see what you have done and I feel lazy...but as we will be leaving in another few weeks and I am still catching up and tending to elderly MIL in town, I still pass, else bunnies would be out with Easter Angels until late June or maybe 4th of July! I enjoy all of your "clutter" and absolutely relate...

Kathy said...

Wow! What a marvelous Easter display - you really went all out! I am quite impressed it looks wonderful,

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

The type of clutter you have is comforting. That's the best kind of clutter. Love your Easter bunnies!

Love your clutter! Living in a Victorian house, how could I be a minimalist? How boring. Love that you have decorations from your childhood. Happy Easter!

Diann said...

Laurie, I so look forward to every holiday that comes up to pop over here and see what you do! Seriously, I swear, I have about 10 of your blog post holiday decor pics tucked away in a "favorite holiday decoration ideas" folder! You always have so many wonderful and unique things to show. And you always approach the holidays with gusto and it is one of my favorite things about you!!

Gail said...

Your decorating style is NOT clutterist, but LUSH.
Happy Easter.

I am going to use my cricut machine and make all sorts of seasonal banners like your rabbit banner.

Anonymous said... may be cluttered....your words, not mine....but it sure is a happy place and I, for one, am thrilled to be here and see your fabulous Easter decor dear Laurie. I love it! Have a very happy and fun weekend. xoxo

Wasn't this the lady who, just a few short weeks ago, didn't know what she was going to put out for Spring??????

I love all of your stuff. Someday I'll get my vintage post cards out too. Love the bunny shaped garland.

You are an inspiration to me to tame my clutter so it can look as delightful.
Organized clutter? Well, it's a goal.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Being a clutterist is what I love about you! Love all of it. Have a wonderful Easter Sunday.
