Well my friends. April is finally here and somehow I’m not quite ready for her.
How about you?
It’s hard to put my finger on it… but if April was a party guest I’d find myself opening up my door feeling slightly annoyed. I’d be thinking,
“Oh no, you’re here already?! But I still haven’t wiped down the bathrooms yet!”
I don’t like that feeling. The sudden flinching when you realize the month’s half over. But it’s also a reminder that life round here has been pretty chaotic. And stressful too. Nothing big. Just a lot of little things happening in succession that leave you walking around with a stiff neck.
The good news is that we’re nearing completion of our swimming pool demolition and I seem to be getting used to all the noise and dust and the fact that nothing is where is should be these days.
But the bad news is that I’ve discovered I’m not really good at blogging when everything around me seems to be in a state of incompletion. It’s like having all these little orphan projects calling my name when I walk around the house,
“Psss.. Leslie, over here. I need you. Please. Sand me.”
Oh boy. If you’re a DIYer you know exactly how that feels.
So life these days seems to be about finding a good balance. And I confess it’s a constant learning experience. Maybe you can relate.
In the meantime today I’m doing something that makes me feel good. I’m returning to my tablescapes again and I’ve got some blue and green inspiration for you. A little rustic prettiness for your day.
How about an Easter table with a few rustic touches and lots of white?
For your Easter table I think dyed eggs make perfect place cards.
I used a gold marker to write on mine.
I used moss inside my vintage pots because I already had some leftover, but wheat grass would have been a cute substitute.
Yep, those are fresh, organic carrots. Added to the table for color.
Using a single flower like Bells of Ireland makes a statement. I also used white hydrangea at both ends of the table and decided against adding any other colors for simplicity.
(other than the carrots for fun)
Aren’t these burlap bunny ears sweet? They came four–in–a-pack from Michael’s Craft Store.
This is BM’s Kendall Charcoal in the dining room in case you’re wondering.
Are you hosting Easter this year?
Whatever your plans are, I wish you an abundance of love and blessings.
