easter whites...

Last year's
 Easter (eye) Candy


I'm showing you


 my Easter table and other decorations 



from last year


I can't show you this year's


because


it's still covered with tax info


and projects


and other stuff.


I'm glad I found this one


I had forgotten that I used the old sheet music as placemats
I like that...may do it again


here's another favorite postcard


and here is my favorite real easter candy


yes... marshmallow eggs...by the dozen.

Just a lovely post.

ah, taxes, my dining table is covered also. I see the tax man tomorrow.

Why do I wait till the last minute every year? You would think I would hurry since this year I have a refund!

Silly Easter rabbit.....

Your last year's table is lovely...I love the music for placemats.

My goodness am I glad you decided to use these photos again, because I don't think I got to see them last year. Everything is so amazing. You definitely know how to put together gorgeous displays. I love the sheet music placemats too!

Dear Rene`,

I love your Easter Whites! You have such a talent for gorgeous vignettes!!!! I love everything you did and I am so glad you shared these photos! I have the same white Holy Bible Illustrated, mine has a zipper and is falling apart I have had it so many years. Oh, you tickle me with why you could not share photos of this years Easter table, but I know you will have it set beautifully by Resurrection Sunday!!! Have a blessed week preparing!

Much love,
Paula

P.S. I forgot to say thank you for the sweet card and kind note you enclosed in my package!

My Shabby Roses said...

Oh, lots of pretties! Wonderful decorating ideas Rene', you always do such a lovely job.

Happy Resurection Day to you too!

Sweet post! I got a pair of old shoes for my Sister for Easter and believe or not, I stuffed them with crinkled paper and tied them just like yours! What a coincidence!!! Great minds...

Kate said...

A truly beautiful post!!!!! Last year still puts forth the beauty.
Have a blessed Easter Holiday to you and your family.

Love & hugs
Kate

Oh, my, I am having to sit back and take deep breaths - this lovely white post has me so egg-cited! I went back three times to study every picture and just soak in the exquisite beauty.

It seems you used nearly every element that I am so crazy about already, but you displayed them to perfection...

We must have been visiting each other at the same time, cause I just left a comment a minute ago here!

Thanks for the painting tip, although, as any of us would like, I was hoping for 'easy'. =)
I try to use what I already have, but maybe finding something different would be easier. Will see what the Lord provides.

Hi Rene, I love the creamy-sepia tones of your photos~~just lovely!! Happy Easter to you and your family. I know mine will be the best ever! My daughter is delivering by c-section our 1st grandchild tomorrow!!! What an appropriate Good Friday!! Love, Julie

Nancy @ Live love laugh said...

Gor-gee-ous! I could just sit and look at each picture and all of the little details! Marshmallow eggs-me, too. In dark chocolate. We have a little candy maker in our town (which is unusual here-everything is so commercial) named Schwartz and the marshmallow is their specialty!
~Nancy

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

I enjoy seeing your photos Rene, it's always a great delight to see your stunning displays and yes I do remember the sheet music you used for placematts. The whole table arrangement was spectacular... eye candy for sure!

Have a Wonderful Weekend*
