At home for spring....
I love the whimsy of Easter decorating!

I decided to carefully bring out Grandmother Estelle's vintage plate
and add it to the mantel.
I have used this plate so often to display
the lamb cake on for Easter dinner.

The butterfly banner was a favorite find
at Target!

Do you love using bird's nests for spring decor?

Another new item is this floral basket
showcasing the vibrant coral poppies!

Spring brings forth a rebirth of mind and spirit.


  1. The mantle is very pretty. When I think of the good foods that have been served up on the plate..oh my. I like to think your grandmother is smiling seeing it displayed. Blessings for a great Easter weekend, xoxo, Susie

  2. The Easter mantle is gorgeous. It looks so "filled in" with the banner and floral arrangement. Happy Easter!

  3. Hi Betsy,

    Your mantel looks wonderful! I absolutely love the butterfly banner! Your grandmother's vintage plate is gorgeous; it looks so elegant and wonderfully old-fashioned. Everything on your mantel just shouts Spring -- love all the bunnies and the moss-covered basket is lovely. To answer your question, yes -- I do like to use bird's nests for decorating. They add such a nice, natural touch to the decor.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a Blessed Easter, Betsy. :)

    Warm hugs,

  4. Dear Estelle, Happy blessing this Easter season! Your Vintage plate is so very pretty, do not let anyone play ball in the living room LOL
    I enjoy putting little birds about my home and I have never thought of adding a nest! Your home your heart and your Blog is done in what I call a spirit of excellence...
    Your blog post always inspire me and gives me another reason to love being home!
    Always, Roxy xo

  5. Everything looks springy and fresh. Now I thought you made the garland...had no idea that one could find one ready made.


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
