Hello my friends, as you all know; Easter is a bit late this year.
After the Valentines décor was tucked away I felt it was a tad too early to start pulling out the chicks and bunnies.
So for that in between time I decided that I would be in Dutch!
Did you ever say that when you were young and afraid of being in trouble?
But this Dutch was no trouble at all. . .in fact, I am in Dutch heaven!
This time worn Dutch cookie jar caught my eye at the first estate sale I hosted in my home.
I knew he would be perfect for the center of our kitchen table. I also had the perfect book I had picked up at a thrift shop that had a sweet Holland scene on the front cover. Well, I put it in a special place. You know, those places that you will be sure to remember, and don't? lol! Yup, I have not been able to find it since.
But, as luck would have it. Look what I found on my last trip to get more treasures for the second estate sale that I am hosting this weekend. A sweet Tulip Time children's book.
Not only the book, but the perfect tablecloth! Geez, I think I might be my own best customer. :)
A stop to a thrift shop helped me find another necessary item for Dutch heaven. Some fun clogs in the perfect colors. Marked $10, but because they had been there a couple of weeks they
came down to $7.
Red and yellow tulips from the grocers, a sweet little hand towel, and my two new treasures were placed into a cute strawberry cart I bought a few years ago at an antique shop. The owner told me that it would hold a flat of strawberries and that they would roll it down the row as they picked. I thought it was just about the cutest thing I ever did see!
If you ask me, Tulip Time is mighty fine!
Yup, I'm in Dutch heaven!!
You might remember that I added extra crystals to the chandy for Valentines. A little too fancy for this centerpiece, but honestly; I haven't had a minute to take them off.
Won't be long till the chicks, bunnies, and ducks take center stage.
Bulbs will be blooming, and trees will be blossoming.
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
