This week a big moving van parked in front of our house and took stuff away. Usually this activity means a series of goodbyes and the seemingly endless process of unpacking and making a new house into a home. There is adventure in that but it can grow weary as time goes on. Lucky for me, however…this is just the first step in our plan to renovate this charming old house and the things removed will be returned to a beautiful new basement guest suite and playroom. What’s the point to this story? When you store your decor and holiday items in a basement, even when you plan carefully, you will over look a few bins… and figure out a few days later that what you want to use is sitting in a storage facility who knows where. So to that point, what do you do? You make do and discover the beauty of what you have at hand. In my case, a whole bunch of colored eggs, a few silk flowers, a bunny or two, and bag of vintage chocolate molds. Enjoy Easter at our house!
Eggs on the Mantel with Antique postcards. Simple but elegant

The Candy jar filled with colorful eggs.
Just line up some capiz eggs on a French baguette board.
Even a Princess needs her rest after a long week. Alas, some of her favorites were packed up as well.
