A little bit of spring

It was a beautiful today here in Colorado.  Not enough to melt the snow in my backyard but at least it is gone in the front.  I didn't get to do all my spring decorating today as I had many projects to accomplish plus my husband needed help with installing a few cabinets in the garage.  We have lived here over a year and a half and still haven't organized the garage.  If I don't help him it will never get done.

Well here are a few things that I did get done today, the kitchen table, my desk area in the kitchen  and part of the island.  Not quite done with the island but here is all that I got today.  I still am playing around with the cloches.

The bunny on the island was a grey color and I painted it antique white.  I bought him and his partner at Tuesday Morning a few years ago.  I have never really liked the color.
Now here is he with his new color.

 I bought this item at Home Goods and thought that with a little tweaking and a wooden accent it would work for my desk area in the kitchen.  It will hold the bills that need to be paid.
Now here it is a finished and on the desk.

I think that I might rethink the blue scissors and some of the sharpies in the holder.  They don't seem to match very well.

Now here is the kitchen table.  I needed some eggs to fit in the egg cups and found some stryofoam eggs at Dollar Tree. You get 6 eggs in the package for $1.  I only needed 4 but decided to by the packages since they are only a $1 a piece and you never know when you will need them.  They came white so I painted them to coordinate with the table setting.   Here is the egg before and after.

Last but not least is the table itself.  I got the blue plates, napkins, napkin holders, black chargers and egg cups at Pier 1 Imports.  The white plates at Goodwill for 99 cents each.  The two birds and tulips from Michael's.  Hopefully here in the next few days I can get the dining room done.  I got the cutest little lamb from Terry's Village and can't wait to get him out.
