Pink Saturday- Easter Decorations

I was kind of stumped for this week's Pink Saturday post. I really don't have a lot of pink in my home. But then, ah yes! Easter is coming soon. So I pulled out some old stuff and added some new decorations and voila! Instant pink post!

I got this kitchen towel from Williams Sonoma after Easter last year. I loved the sweet bunnies in their canoe.

And this is the flip side of the towel. Another darling image.

I got this pink fan at my new favorite store, Nesting. See the previous post for other photos of the store.

Does this look strangely familiar? Very similar to the towel image. This one is from Home Goods. I tried it on my door but liked it better on the cart in the kitchen.

Last weekend, I bought some pussywillows at Wilson Farms. They are so soft and they re like a cat's toes.

I put the fan in a vase with the pussywillows. Giving a little color to all that gray.

Assorted pinks from my collection of vintage Easter postcards. I love the images on these old cards. I got the photo holder from Pier One.

Ok, this photo is stretching it. The color of the room is really more of a beige but it does take on a rosy glow at certain times of the day. This is the birdcage I got at Nesting. You can see it hanging at Nesting in the previous post. It will eventually be hung in the living room but I need to get the right hook to hang it up. So for now it rests on a table.

Well it looks like we're a little tired and more than a little cranky from all the decorating and this exhausting photo shoot. Molly is ready for a nap. So it's off to LaLa Land. Until next time...


okay...after seeing your post I have to get me some pussy willows. My hair dresser has a bush and she is rooting some for me. HPS

LOvely post.
Happy pink Saturday, Riet
Your posts this week are great. I love the bunnies and love WS too. I have a thing for pussy willows and baskets made with them. Have you ever noticed a willow basket that is around moisture, the pussy willows bloom within the basket itself, amazing to say the least, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

I used to have pussy willows in a yard of a former home. I'd forgotten how I use to enjoy them in the spring. Thanks for reviving the memory. Sally

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
