Easter ... and Christmas morning!

As a blogger today is the best day of the year.  Well, since it comes twice a year I should edit that.  But ... seriously people, it is the BEST day!

The One Room Challenge is BACK!!

I absolutely love the next six weeks ... I look forward to each week and following so many talented people on their journey!  And Linda is amazing ... and works her bum off to make sure we all have such a positive experience.   I am headed for a quick haircut and then back home to rest up (bad bladder sitch) and I will be dissecting each and every designer and room.  EEK!!!  So excited to dive in.  

And then tomorrow I will be linking up as a linking participant for the 4th time!  Wow.  That means I have four rooms I have sweated over and loved every single second of it!  So much work to do before tomorrow ... but I am giddy to get started!

Our Easter table is complete and ready for celebration!  I am thrilled with how it turned out, but mostly I am so proud of myself for using what I had and loving each element!

Our daily blue and white dishes paired with green lettuce plates and antique monogrammed M plates.  I just love it all!

I used monogram napkins as placemats!  I love how it turned out!

Blue and white porcelain and vintage pups ... 


Gold bamboo flatware for the win. 

These precious antique cups will be used for after dinner coffee!

The jelly beans I managed not to eat work perfectly inside my vintage champagne glasses to hold up these darling gold eggs.  And I promise you, I only ate the colors that didn't match.  xo

These tiny vintage dishes of my in laws are the perfect little bread plate.  I am so excited to own and use so many of their amazing things.  I am one lucky girl when it comes to hand me downs!

The menu is set for Saturday evening and the baskets are almost complete.  It is so much harder when the kids get older to find fun things to fill their baskets.  If you have any great things I should add ... let me know.  My sad baskets will thank you!

Off to chop the hair and then home for a marathon of reading ... 

Happy Hump Day!
