I like just a touch of seasonal and holiday decor. We don't have tons of storage for it, (no garage, basement, or attic, for instance) so I don't buy many decorations either.
But I really prefer to use my vintage collections to feature a holiday anyway. This vintage flower basket is a natural for spring.
I also love using illustrations from A Country Diary in some way throughout most of the year. The numerous nature drawings and the hand lettering have such appeal, and there's a beautiful chapter for every month.
Old ribbon and lace makes a nice bow. But lately I am loving torn fabric strips and have made a bow with a chenille bedspread "cutter" that I have been saving. It was already worn to shreds when I found it.
I'm sort of crazy about this old bent up wire egg basket that I found in the Colorado countryside last fall. I've been toting things everywhere in it lately. A tatted doily in the bottom is a pretty way to display eggs.
A little lace napkin liner makes a sweet embellishment. (Imagine just how many gathered eggs it could hold!)
A few pretty linens make a perfect nest.
I don't remember the last time I bought a special Easter basket for the occasion, but it was many seasons ago. We always have plenty for eager egg hunters!
I love dressing up a little basket every now and then!
I hope you're having a fantastic
White Wednesday too!
