The Lazy Decorator Part 2
As each holiday season passes, I promise myself I will be more prepared for the next one. As I do several craft shows and have two shops to decorate at Christmas time, I just manage to throw up (that doesn’t sound right) some decorations around the house. And it usually doesn’t look that bad because we’ve got nice Christmas decorations.
Well, here we are facing Spring head on and guess what? I’M NOT READY!!!! I wish I had all kinds of great excuses why I’m not ready, but I don’t. So I had to call out the lazy decorator in me to fix up this boring mantle. (You’ve seen it before in The Lazy Decorator)
I have some cute “Springy” stuff, I just had to gather it together and throw it on the dining table, like this….
Let’s take a closer look at some of these goodies.
These are old store stock egg boxes that were never used. I got them at the Big Flea in Fredericksburg for $1.00 a piece. Look closely at the cute chicken graphics!
Yeah, I know he’s a goat not a lamb, but just look at that sweet face!
Here is a vintage flocked lamb next to two vintage hard plastic bunnies. Look at the little red nose on the yellow bunny.
Well I futzed for all of 10 minutes, because that’s basically my attention span, and I came up with this…
I know you can’t see it very well, so I’ll give you some panoramic pictures.
I love the vintage Easter card and all the little peeps.
Look at my vintage bunny wearing a small doily on her head. And more peeps.
Look who’s reading “The Velveteen Rabbit”, more peeps.
And last but not least on top of the mantle, it’s goatee! (and more peeps)
Here is an Easter banner I made. Unfortunately, Miss Golightly is a little too interested in this! We’ll have to see how long this lasts. Here is a close up in case you don’ t have Superman vision.
Well, that’s my 10 minute, low budget (more like NO budget) Spring decorating. The moral of this story is you can decorate with anything and make it look great as long as you are surrounded by your peeps!!!!!
Super cute ! Love the vintage cards & egg boxes 🙂
Helen, I think your Spring stuff looks great. Two standouts are the egg cartons you purchased at the fredericksburg, flea (that is where we met) and the garland. Have really enjoyed your blog and look forward to visiting your booth. Mary
