Spring Vignettes

As I put out my seasonal decor this year,   I am trying to prepare for several yard sales that I am planning to have in 2016.    In the process of looking in each tote,   I have found lots of treasures that I had forgotten about!  
 I hadn't seen this lit teapot in!    Is it a keeper ....or should it go to a yard sale box?
In this Easter vignette,   I have my mothers lamp that she bought in 1949 while on a trip to California.    

I have a display cabinet on each side of the fireplace.

  This one has some of my vintage dishes.....

The pink depression glass pitcher and glasses belonged to my mother.....

While digging "deep" in my totes for possible yard sale stuff,   I found a sweet bunny that I made years ago.....

I made her in the 90's when I was doing craft mother made the coordinating pillows.

The bunnies are beginning to take over the family room!

   If you want to see more of the bunnies and horses   here

Have you started your spring decorating yet?


  1. Love the lit teapot. The bunnies started multiplying here as soon as the Christmas came down. Then it was tucked in between the Valentine's. Now they're finding room of their own.

  2. Penny,
    Love the tea pot and your Mother's lamp is drop dead gorgeous!! I will not be taking down Valentine's and Winter decor until the end of the month. I will be getting some company over the next few weeks that are coming to see these decorations so they will be staying up.

  3. Penny, love all the pretty bunnies, dishes, etc. I remember that my cousin and I made so many bunnies and sold them. They were so much fun to make there dresses. I only have two left and I do treasure them. Everything looks beautiful and Spring.
    Have a great weekend. Happy hunting in your totes.


  4. Yes, of course I've begun my Springtime decorating, but let me tell you, Penny, it's does not hold a candle to yours. I was reading your post this morning and it occurred to me that your mother must have been an amazing person when it came to decorating and talent as yourself! Those pillows she made that go with your bunny, are just beautiful!
    Everything is just beautiful and so creative. YOU are my favorite magazine, and the best part is that you are always new and inspiring and never ending. :):):)

  5. It's looking great! I love all the little touches you've added. It really says "spring" all over the room. Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday!

  6. Like you, we are experiencing spring weather. I am lightening up my vignettes and bringing in more flowers.

    I love seeing all the sweet treasures you have that belonged to your mother.

    Thanks for Saving Your Cup!

  7. Very pretty, I love seeing that you have kept many special items from your Mom. It's quite enjoyable going into bins and finding things that you forgot all about. It's like they're new all over again. Best wishes on getting things together for your yard sale, I have to do the same. Maybe I'll find some memories in the boxes also. Have a great day, Kelly. (I'm visiting from Wow Me Wednesday).
