A Spring Bunny Table

I was about to pack these bunny dishes away in preparation for our first big move in May, but I saw a box of bunny accessories in the garage so I thought I would set another table before packing them. I am so overwhelmed with the work. I just cannot finish boxing up the dishes. There is just so much! And this is after I gave a lot away and sold a pretty good number too.
Can you believe we were given an estimate of $22,000 by a moving company for them to move our belongings? And this is after I did the packing myself. So, we decided to just move ourselves with friends' and family's help.
I will mostly just show you pictures so that I can go back to my packing, lol.


Bordallo Pinheiro bunny plates.
Bought these on clearance from Sur La Table last year. I finally got to use them. I know, I know.....I have to stop buying plates.













 

 Doesn't it look like there is a ghost on top of the fireplace? It's the TV.
The table might be pretty but it is not pretty on the other side, lol. That is where I do all my packing.

It's been almost a year since my granddaughter Rea was diagnosed with neuroblastoma and I just want you to know that she is doing very well. She has been on remission for more than 120 days now and her hair has started to grow. I would again like to thank everyone who prayed and is still praying for her.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I appreciate the hostesses
very much. It is so much fun to join them in spite of how busy I am.

An Easter Table for 2015

Feeling a little depressed since my daughter Tina and her family just left after almost a week's vacation, so I better do something to amuse me. And what better way to amuse me than to create an Easter table? Well, it is back to just John and me so I just set the little table. But before I go on, let me wish all of you a blessed and wonderful Easter! The Lord has risen and we should all rejoice!!
 
 I have been extremely busy, just came back from a month's trip to Florida and the next day, Tina, Scott and kids arrived. And in my spare time, I try to pack and sell something on my moving sale on facebook. I was about to pack this dinnerware set when I decided to use them for my Easter table. I was not able to bring down my Easter accessories bin from the attic so I just used whatever I have inside the house.
 The table is very colorful in pastels. I decided to mix up the colors instead of stacking the same colors.
 The plate chargers that I used have been sitting in the garage for so long and I finally used them.


 Interesting at how the hanging light reflected on the spoon. It looks like water mark, isn't it?


 I bought this from Celebration, Florida many years ago. Have you ever been there? It is very close to Orlando and it is a very neat little town.




 Love this dome!
 And this blingy bunny has been displayed in our living room as long as I can remember.

 I love to serve rice in this tureen.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits and comments. So sorry I have not been much around. I hope I can make it up when we are finally moved in  Florida.
Thanks as always to the hostesses. I am linking with

St. Patrick's Day Table, March, 2015

We are in Florida, just visiting children and grandkids and not moved in yet. With that said, I do not have enough tablescape stuff to use here, but we drove, so I brought some Irish table accessories to be able to set a table for St. Patrick. I also brought my favorite antique dinnerware set because I wanted to make sure they were already here safe and not risk breaking them during the big move. They happen to be mostly green so I thought of using them.
 



 
Antique Bavarian Tirschenreuth dinner plates. I love the elegant gold scrolls all around.
 The flowers come in different patterns.
 I love the shape of the salad plates. I bought them from an antique shop in downtown Natchez.




 I have no napkin rings here ( I have a lot in our Cape Coral home but have not gone there yet) so I used some Leprechaun hats instead.


I have no plate chargers here either so I used my felt shamrock place mats.




 I have a teapot with shamrocks but no teacups yet.

 My granddaughter, Halle (one of the twins), kept wanting to help me set the table. Both her and Rea kept asking me what I was doing, lol.
And so, there is my simple St. Patrick table. Thank you all for stopping by and special thanks to the hostesses. I am happy to be able to join Kathleen's St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl for Let's Dish at
 
I am also joining other parties.
