It is a hard to know what to write during these uncertain days. It seems trite to talk about home decor or the latest furniture makeover when people are loosing their jobs due to the Coronavirus. I recognize this is a scary and challenging time for everyone, however, because we are all spending more time at home, I want to still share things that make our homes cozy and enjoyable for our families. In the coming days, I may share a few more recipes than normal or even my favorite cleaning products (I have cleaning on the brain). Regardless, I will still try to inspire and encourage all while being sensitive to what is going on in the world around us.
Easter will be different for everyone this year, but it will still be Easter. There is still reason to acknowledge and rejoice in the resurrection of Christ, even when our celebrations look differently from past years. I didn't go ALL out on the Easter decor this year, but the few things I did put out have brought us joy, I hope they do the same for you.
We call this room our playroom, although I'm not sure why as we no longer have children at home. I have tried to call it the sunroom, because that is what it really is, but for some reason it just doesn't sound right to me. Anywho, we live in this room.
The paper mâché bunny was a gift from a friend of mine who is a talented artist. My birthday is in March, so I get lots of fun Easter decor from friends. These pictures are in the kitchen, obviously.
This big fella is another gift from a friend and he is perfect as a centerpiece for our dining room table.
My great aunt made these eggs over 40 years ago. She blew out the egg and then decorated the shell with images that she cut out of catalogs and newspapers. Do you see the Cambell Soup boy?? She was crafty before crafty was cool and created beauty out of virtually nothing. I always display these eggs in my mother's childhood Easter basket.
These bunnies on the living room mantel were some of the first Easter decorations I bought when Lee and I were married almost 28 years ago.
I shared last Friday how I fluffed up this boxwood wreath for Spring. It's currently hanging in our entry hall, but I may move it to the playroom for Easter.
Bunny cheer in the powder room.
The same friend that painted the paper mâché bunny also created this painting. I think it captures all that we should be focused on during this unsettling season. Do your best to Bloom where you are planted, be charitable, keep the faith, and stay hopeful. Have a blessed weekend friends.
