H A P P Y   E A S T E R !
I doubted this post was going to go up for awhile there.
I have been so sick this week...I couldn't bring myself to finish my dining room decor for Easter.
The buffet had been decorated for days but I still had some other things to add to the table.
Last weekend I'd bought moss and twig wreaths to use as charges.
But I never got around to getting napkins.
I'd seen some I wanted but thought I'd wait to see if I found something better.
Well, seeing as I didn't leave the house this week...this is as far as I got.
I do love getting all my majolica out in the spring!
The colors are so right at this time of year.
I never tire of the majolica begonia leaves.
And although I have quite a few...I want a few more.
Eggs nestled nicely into a cupcake stand.
I found sheets of moss at a local antique mall for a runner.
Moss from the Dollar Tree went inside the cupcake stand.
Who knew Dollar Tree had such cheap moss?
It's not the highest quality but it will work in most instances.
Twig wreaths also from Dollar Tree became chargers. 
I've started to buy charges countless times over the last year and then put them back because they just seem so ho hum. 
I'm still looking for the perfect ones.
The dishes are my Johnson Brothers's Richmond White with Luray Pastels on top of that and then topped with these pretty decorative plates that hung on the wall in my past homes.
They never made it to the wall here...not sure why...
Maybe they will yet.
There are four different ones....I didn't take a photo of the fourth.
Etruscan begonia leaf dish. I can't get enough of these.
Love this majolica plate too.
All the colors I like to use in my house.
The large bunny is by United Design. A company that manufactured stone figures 
for years here in Oklahoma.
My sister worked for this company and knew I wanted this large bunny.
She grabbed it for me on an employee sale day.
I cherish him because of this. 
I think it's going to be a quiet Easter for me this year.
Just Mom and I...I think. 
Oh...yes...and the weenies.

I hope you have a lovely one.
