Spring daffodils and a cute pair of MC Easter Egg carts

The Easter Eggs are from MCs too (several years ago)

Welcoming Easter at the Dining Table 2024


Welcoming Easter at the Dining Table

The new Easter bunnies I used last year are once again in use.  Love the texture!

I used a large wire tray that I got from Pottery Barn years ago.  I also brought in some of my blue and white pieces.

The tablecloth I also used last year and was from Williams Sonoma

Found this at Home Goods this year and it has two sides so I'll be able to use it again!

The wire tray is wrapped on the outside with a 5 ft. long egg garland that I got from Amazon.

Carrots and eggs placed on the grass along with this bunny topped cabbage bowl cutsied it up a bit!

Forsythia in the vase, so springlike!

The blue and white bowl I got at Home Goods and was loaded with all these white flowers.  This is a keeper for sure!

I've been enjoying this for a while now and looking forward to spring!
Thanks for stopping by!

Greetings Early February!


I'm jumping a bit ahead and decorating for spring already!  We are having such a mild winter up north here in Michigan.  Temps are higher than normal around the 40ยบ mark during the day, and not a whole lot of snow!  I can tell the days are getting longer already so that makes me happy!

I got some daffodils from Michael's which I thought looked pretty realistic! 
The runner was from Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago.

The MacKenzie Childs (MC) lantern and candle are new since Christmas and I love the MC cow.  The creamy white pitcher I picked up long ago and has cows on it too.

These are MC planters I got on sale and the bunny was a find many years ago.

Some more MC on the lower shelf.

And lastely some indoor gardening.  My Amaryllis are still blooming.  
The flowers began the end of  December and I've gotten at least 2 shoots off of each bulb so I'm having a 2nd time around with them!  Charley our 10 mos. old Siamese likes to inspect!
This one was absolutely huge, called Sofia
 These were fabulous, a striking color called Neon

And these were also quite beautiful, called Magical Touch
The yellow green one is called Yellow Star
That's my update for now!

Merry Christmas to All!


I'll start in the kitchen with my hot cocoa area.  I've got a collection of mugs from Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma and a couple that were made up for us by a friend.  

A MacKenzie Childs cookie jar bought late last year.  This area gets used a lot!

I set up a gingerbread village near the kitchen dining area.
 I got my pieces from Home Goods, QVC and Hobby Lobby. 
The two nutcrackers were ordered on-line late last year.

A daytime view so you can see the tree better. 
The gingerbread houses are from Old World Christmas and Pottery Barn

Heading to the living room some more MacKenzie Childs and a forest of trees! 

 The candles in the antlers have timers in them so they're automatic everyday, which I like.
Reindeer candle holders

Love this santa!

 Santa's car has lights, so cute!

I created a wall of trees behind everything to help prevent my 8 mos. old kitten from knocking everything off!  So far it's working!
 You can see the dining table tray I set up through the trees.
A lantern from the Old Pier One store (before they closed).   A candle ring surrounds the red candle and two golden candles help surround the lantern.  Tablecloth from Home Goods last year.    The placemats may have come from Kohls several years ago.
Out in the living room I created a village setting with a new cottage and reindeer.  

The cottage is made by Cody Foster and the reindeer are from Germany that I found at Home Goods.  I couldn't resist the cutness of the cottage!
This is the 8 mos. old kitten, Charley.  He poses well!
Lana snuggled with blankets.

On our coffee table.  I did the same arrangement last year.  The santa is a Bethany Lowe I got a a neat little store in Rochester, MI where I grew up.  The reindeer were found in Petoskey, MI at a boutique store up there.
In the living room, the mantel.  Santa is surrounded with Nutcrackers, trees, and reindeer with lots of ornaments.  He's checking his list and they are patiently waiting.

Making his list, checking it twice!

More MacKenzie Childs items.  

Trees from various sources like Hobby Lobby and Home Goods

Thank you for stopping by!
Wishing you and yours a Blessed and Merry Christmas!

P.S. If you noticed the furniture legs are covered with plastic.  
Our daughter is home with her pet rabbit Fred, 
and he is allowed to come out 
but he loves to chew on wood!










                                                        Peace be with you all!
