This month was full of some fun new creations, decorating for Spring/Easter and a relaxing beach trip for our anniversary. I had so much fun creating plant hanger critters out of clay as Christmas gifts last year, I purchased a beautiful wood mold and used my clay to create a pretty Spring-like wall hanging.
I surprised my husband with a three-night stay at a house in Lincoln City to celebrate our anniversary in early March. We stayed in an area near Roads End at the north end of Lincoln City that we have never been to before. It was a sweet area, very private and picturesque. Our house was very nice and had beautiful views of the ocean. The weather was pretty stormy the first day, but gradually cleared up so we could take in the beautiful views and enjoy the area. Izzi and I got out for walks on the beach every day and the whole trip was just so nice and relaxing.
I like to put out my Spring/Easter decorations about a month before Easter, so around the middle of this month I got started with my decorating. Starting when my daughter Kym was little, each year we would make a new blown-out egg to hang on our Easter tree on the dining table. The tree has changed shape over the years and this year I decided to do something a little different and rather than hanging the eggs on a tree, I put them on my tiered serving tray. I am really liking this for a change and the designs on the eggs are a little easier to see this way. I also put together a little vignette of bunnies and a cute little postal scale I found thrifting recently. I set this next to the serving tray in the center of our table and just love how it turned out. Here are some photos of my various decorations.
Our family has lot of birthdays in March and April, so we are also having fun celebrations with all our birthday people too.
Happy Spring and Easter to all of you!
