Vignettes......



                                          It's Easter Week!

                                         

                         Here is one of my favourite Easter flowers..

                             Daffodils and Pansies..

                                 ok maybe two!!


                                                  





      While browsing the isles at my local garden store I'd seen these
                         bowls made up with pansies and alysum.

                                      Their price was $14.99

                 That may sound  reasonable...but not for me..

                                Then I spotted these daffodils...

                                           A full pot of minis only $6.99...

                                 So they went in my cart ....
                    
                                          Next I spotted these beautiful
                                                pansies....
                                                         only  $.99 cents.....


                                So they came home with me as well.......

                                        I took my pot of daffodils and added in the
                                                         pansies.... and wa la......
                                        
                                                      There you have a beautiful
                                                          arrangement for only.....


                                                         $7.99........


                             So the title of my post read VIGNETTE!!





                                     So here in the corner of my living room
                                                      sits another vignette....


                                    Notice the brass lamp in the background...
                                                 You know they are back in style...

                                          So I updated mine by adding a new shade...

        
                                                Happy Easter!!

                                                     Thanks for stopping by!

Colourful Easter Welcome

                             


                                  





                                 It's Easter Week!!


                           Right now it's snowing here just north of the city
                                  of Toronto, Ontario.

                          We have about 3cm and it's still snowing.


                         So I wanted to share with you my Colourful
                                  Welcoming Easter Porch.










                                           I put this display together on the weekend
                                 since the snow was all gone and the
                                  temps were in the high teens celsius.

Colourful ...





                                      It was a rainy day.....

                 My grand daughter just had her bedroom
                    painted in her favourite colour
                                   teal......

                                             
                                                  
New colourful bedding of polka dots......

So I decided to make her a new
pillow slip in bright colourful colours...

I searched my stash and came up with these.

  
 Are these your colours??

Don't they just call sunshine...
Spring....and maybe Summer...

Thanks for stopping by!
