Something old: the three pink vases I picked up at a thrift store for about a dollar or two. I love the pretty pinkness of them and how they look in my dining room.
Something new: the light, delicate flowers in the vases and the decorated wooden Easter eggs. All 5o% off at Hobby Lobby, my favorite store on this planet.
Here is a close-up of the wooden eggs on a tea towel I got in a set at TJ Maxx. I couldn’t resist using it as the base for this Easter center piece.
Since the pretty tea towels make me so happy, I have them on other horizontal surfaces around our living area, too. And because our main colors are a creamy yellow with a healthy heaping of pink, it’s all good.
So here’s the hutch. If you look closely, you can see a spring tag I made in browns and pinks. I like it so much I decide to keep it and make new ones instead to give away in our tag exchange.
Here are the dishes close-up and personal. There’s something I realize about dishes I like: they need to have a decorative edge…not just smooth and round or square, and they definitely need a floral design (I guess that’s the romantic in me). These dishes have both! I hope they make you smile….I feel happy and cheerful every time I look at them.
