Decorating My Table

It is so nice to go back in to my archives and try and duplicate how I decorated my table three years ago. I haven't bought anything new except for two little tiny rabbit tin buckets and a cute bunny coin purse at my HEB grocery store the other night. I'm trying to re-use everything that I have stored. Things are a bit tight around here so I'm trying to be frugal. I'm also more willing to buy from Etsy these days if I have a need for something unique instead of something that is mass made.
The sweet plates I purchased at Goodwill. I didn't buy them when I saw them. I couldn't stop thinking about them that night so my husband drove me out to GW the next day and I bought them. I love anything with pink roses!

The pale green tablecloth is one of my favorites but due to old age setting in, I can't remember where I bought it! That year, I had made a special dinner for Easter for my family and friends. Each person got a little bunny on their plate to take home. Even the men-folk were excited about their bunny!

I fell in love with this chick on the egg. When I purchased it, it was almost identical to a chick on a egg that one of my favorite altered artist blogger friend was making. I couldn't afford what she was asking so when I was at Ross, I saw it and grabbed it. I think I payed maybe like $5.00 for it.

I love plastic Easter eggs! Especially the pastel ones. I also have some plastic eggs that are very metallic looking which I love to mix with the other eggs I have. Gives it a little bling if you will! I have several apothecary jars so I try to use them on my table for various holidays. I once put Christmas ornaments in one and wound up breaking all the ornaments. I now put cinnamon and clove scented pine cones that I buy every year at Dollar General, with bits of pine needles and I leave the lid off. Smells great too!

I am making a trip tomorrow to one of my favorite vintage malls, Craftiques. In addition to having antiques and collectibles, they also have many stalls filled with vendors who sell handmade wares and decor. I want something in pink or aqua that is fancy, sparkly and glittery. They never let me down!

Well toodles for now. Mr. Timeless and I are busy unpacking those dreaded boxes in the garage. I found a purse that I hadn't seen in three years. I started packing for our move a year prior to us moving and have basically forgotten what I had packed so now, I'm getting a thrill every time we open up a box!

I'm confused, Deanna. Are you only going to be posting on this blog from now on? I pop in and out and would love to be able to keep up with you!

Quick reminder ~ my upcoming annual WEDDING BLOG PARTY is this Friday, June 8th! I do hope you'll be able to join us and link up with anything of your choosing!! I'll be having a little bridal giveaway along with the party, too!

Big TX Hugs,
