I sure miss all the threads that showed seasonal decorating, tablesettings, vignettes, porches/patios, yards/gardens etc.

I am not doing what I had hoped to get done. Will get a photo or two, but may be late. It snowed last weekend, so did not feel like making a new spring wreath for the door. Having two holidays this month didn't help either.

I did aquire a few new pieces. May need some help as to what to do with what I have. One problem is that mostly have just one piece and don't know how to put with the other pieces.

Please post photos if you can. TIA

This painted planter idea really caught my eye.

I don't decorate as much for each season as I once did. This year all I've done is change the color of some tapers to pastel colors and put out my 'bunny vase'. Haven't taken any pics but will post a couple of old ones as well as some inspiration pics I've saved.

This is my Beswick 'bunny pitcher vase' which belonged to DH's DGM.

My late Siamese always ate plants so I put these jonquils in a cage.

I often use this real birdnest in my spring decor. I keep it in an apothecary jar and put glass 'eggs' in it. DH found it in a fallen tree.

I just noticed this thread. Don't know how I missed it before.

In my house the only place that gets consistently decorated for seasons or holidays is my front entry. I have a small chest of drawers there, with an antique French mirror hanging above, and a smallish lamp. I try to have something else on the chest that is seasonal.

Right now I have my three trusty cloches, that I use frequently, and they each have a different nest under them. The little blue eggs are polished stone, the beige eggs are some sort of tropical nut that is carved and polished, and the other cream colored eggs are plastic. I am keeping my eyes peeled for some other eggs for that nest. Something natural.

Anyway, what I like about this arrangement is that it is using things I already had, and it isn't so Easter specific that I have to change it out now. It will take me through spring.

I have enjoyed seeing everyone's ideas!

Thanks for sharing all the photos!

Annie, like the polka dot pots. May try that too. A very cute idea.

Lucky, that is a very pretty pitcher. The jonquils in the birdcage is very pretty and I wouldn't have thought of that. The cage reminds me of the one that my grandmother used for her canary. Eggs and nests are nice too. Thanks for the inspiration photos.

Cocok, you do so much with your trusty cloches. Always a joy to see what you come up with.

Well it is time to confess, didn't do anything as planned for Easter. Between the snow and the grands not coming, wasn't in the mood. Did fix a nice meal for us. It was just dh, ds and me. The planned extras for a few days were nice.

I posted a photo of a plate on today's MMF thread. I had thought that would be good to use after East er until summer. It reminds me of a dogwood blossom.

I am rethinking that maybe I should just do decorating with accessories that would be more than just for a holiday. Just small touches of holiday decor items.

Thanks for contributing to this thread.

I am hoping now that is finally warming up to do some spring decorating on my porches. I'm putting some ideas together in my head right now.
