Switch-A-Roo

Yes, you’re reading this correctly; 2 blogs in 24 hours! It’s a miracle for me these days. I put up our Easter decorations the day before St. Patrick’s Day simply because I was bored with my St Pats décor. I almost made it; I had one day left, but I had to pull a décor switch-a-roo. Easter is just so much more exciting for me. Anyways, here is what I have around the house for Easter this year.
A welcome to the Hawley's Easter wreath.

The table is ready for Easter supper.

Here is the mantle, some of which you have seen already (e.g. the birdhouse & the 'H').

I got this string of glittered eggs at HL for $4. They are a perfect length to string across the mantle.
On the floor in front of the fireplace we have our Easter baskets ready for the Easter bunny :-)
I love this little set. It is an awesome reminder of what Easter is really all about- a nativity scene for Easter if you will. I have been looking for a Resurrection scene for years now & finally found one. We have this sitting on the breakfast bar & love having it right where everyone can see. There is a funny story with this set that I have to share with you. So remember when our bookshelves, the ones that I built, fell over? Well that was right after I had just purchased this set & I had it sitting on the floor in front of the bookshelves. When the shelves fell they landed right on all of the figurines. Amazingly, the only thing that was broken was the sword & the leg of the soldier (the soldier on the right). When Phil saw that I was hot-gluing his little leg & sword back together he said, “Now that’s justice!”

I have a couple of these wooden eggs hanging on door knobs. If you look closely, you can see me taking the picture ;-)


Here are just a few other Easter things spraweled around the house.


We're so ready for Easter, can you tell? Hope y'all have a great week!

You're too cute Darby!
I wish I could do things like that around our house. But nick-nacks and dogs tails equals a mess for me to clean up. So I go with a simplistic look! :)
