If you’re wondering, yep, I did it. I stalled all the way to the cutting counter, trying to decide if I should… but I was on a mission. A mission from God. (Okay, maybe God doesn’t care if I bought it, but any time I say “mission” I haaave to follow it up…) So I did it. And on my way to the cutting counter, I was stopped by about six people telling me how much they looooved the fabric. :) Total cost: $9.99 for two yards (normally the price of one yard) since I had a coupon.
Here it is again, and here’s the post if you want to weigh in…
I thought I would show you the two easter-y displays I have up. We’re still new and the kid’s still young, so we don’t have a ton just yet, but I’m sure we have plenty of time to match the gazillion plastic eggs many of you probably have!
I love how bright and cheery the flowers are and they look like they’re growing among the sticks!
Opposite that wall, we have a coat hook shelf that I’ve added a bit of Easter decor to as well by adding things we already had elsewhere in the house. The coat hook shelf was $5 at a garage sale and is distressed black – I love it! It’s a great place to show off my seasonal decor!
You might remember the mini trees on either end from this post (that I kinda sorta copied from PB), that were super cheap to make (especially if you have all the goodies on hand). The frames were $1.99 a piece from Goodwill and were snot green and silver, I had them in the front room. Now that they’re ORB, they all match and I just love the detail on them! I didn’t have mattes, so I cut computer paper to fit and placed the photo carefully inside.
I guess bunny topiaries were all the rage last year in blogland, but I wasn’t blogging then so I didn’t know! Someone must have loved the trend, because I got this bunny topiary from freecycle last June! My daughter’s bed has little green bunny cutouts on it, so this was in her room and will go back there. One piece of Easter decor that I can keep out all year – free!
So that’s it… I know, lame. I do have stuff to make Easter baskets and I do have some more springy decor, I’m just not there yet. But we do have a crucifix hanging in our home… isn’t that what Easter really is about? Jesus loving us so much that he died on the cross for us? I think so.
Keeping within the spirit of that, I also liked this idea from Jeanne Winter’s blog, about an Easter Cross Candle display. Check it out!
Linking up to Frugalicious Friday at Finding Fabulous (I found my fabric and my decor was a steal!), Weekend Wrap-Up at Tatertots and Jello (I was featured last week, woo hoo! Thanks Jen!), Saturday Night Special at Funky Junk Interiors, and a new one that I’m excited about, Shop Your House Sunday at Finesse Your Nest.
Go have fun and get in on the partying and enjoy your weekends!
