Life throws us curves at times doesn’t it? Please accept my sincere apologies for not getting this blog post written a little sooner, although if truth be told, I just finished my indoor Easter/Spring decorations the other day. But, I needed to push the pause button with my decorating and my blogging/vlogging–My sweet Aunt Midge passed away last week, and I needed a little bit of time to mourn, reflect, and to go and spend a little bit of time with my family. Crazy things like what I’m about to tell you happen to me all of the time, and I don’t know if it is a good or a bad thing, but, it is a *thing*. Chris and I had scheduled a visit up to “God’s Country” as we call it because I had commissioned a lady to make me a sign like this:
I saw that one of my cousin’s had gotten one, then another one got one, so I wanted one too, and I got one for my cousin Stacey (who y’all have met here on my site), and then my cousin Donita and I split the cost of one and we gave it to our Aunt Barb (Stacey’s Mom). SO that means that most of us here in my family have one of these precious signs now. It contains all of the old hymns that we sang as a family when I was growing up, and to this day, every time we’re together, we sing these hymns. I cannot tell you how special this is to me. ANYway, that’s the backstory of the sign, but, what I wanted to tell y’all was that my Aunt Midge who was in a nursing home up there in God’s Country happened to take a turn for the worse on the day that we were traveling to collect our signs. Bless her heart, it was so special for us to be able to go up and visit with her for that day—she passed away the next evening and her funeral (really a celebration of her amazing life, she touched so many with her sweet ways, knowledge of the Bible, her piano playing, and much, much more) was last week. When my Mom was dying, I happened to be shopping across town and got a feeling of dread and I literally hopped in my car and drove the 100+ miles to my Mom’s nursing home–I walked in and my Dad asked…”How did you know? I was just getting ready to call you”…Whew…cold chills when up my spine and I was very grateful that I had listened to that little inner voice that told me to GO. SO, anyway, I ramble…But, I wanted y’all know where I’ve been and why it has taken me a bit of time to stop, sit, and write a blog about the rest of my Easter/Spring decor. 🙂 Here is where that sign went to live in our home–We added that scroll’y’ piece over it and the clock to the left of it to try to pull all of the decor together.

So onward we soldier folks…Okie dokie, when last I wrote, I do believe I left off at the fireplace. This sweet little arrangement is what I created next. It sits on a table that is between our family room and kitchen. I found that sweet little bunny at a country store we have in our town…I’ll post a video where I give a little tour of that store and where I show you how I created that centerpiece. 🙂
I did add a few things to the kitchen windows:
Next I moved into the dining room where I created this lantern centerpiece, switched out my tablecloth, and added a pretty Springy table runner:
Here is my YouTube video where I show you how I put together this dining room table:
And just the other day to finish my indoor decorations, I added a few little things to the living room to bring Spring and Easter into that space. 🙂 Of course I did make a video of that too and I will post a link below the pictures.
Here are a couple of shots of the family room and then the living and dining rooms:
And here is my YouTube video where I show you how I finished up the living room, and then after that I’ll share a “Car Chit-Chat” video that has a home tour of everything that I did for Easter/Spring after the Chat. 🙂
Next, I’ll be moving outside and decorating out there for Easter. 🙂
