Hippity Hoppity ~ Easters on its way?

I have just gotten myself in the middle of early Spring Cleaning. And when I say that I mean..every room in my house is starting to look like a junk store. I have been pulling things out...dusting, (UGH) and starting to mentally rearrange, set up vinettes and create goodies for SPRING! Does anybody else do this? I get so mentally exhausted with all the *TO DO's* I start seeing in my mind that before I know it I've got 50 projects going all at once...well maybe 10. Temporary insanity...thank goodness its March maddness and my sweet hubby is glued to the tube! lol

See...I told ya it was a mess! These are just a few rooms to show you what I was talking about!



Stay tuneds..cause this is a BEFORE and AFTER waiting to happen..just need to do it! lol
Spring is my favorite time of year..and then summers warmth! I was going through my *stuff* and realized that I let go of loads last year and needed to Kick It Up a notch..so to speak....so here's a few teasers of some cute goodies I've been making myself. So..what do ya think?



So...here's a teaser! I have a few vinettes done in my kitchen area. Of course I am never done tweaking until the entire home is finished...so this may change a little..but you can see I am at work! Sorry about how dark this first one is..It would not put the flash on..don't know why! CAMERAS!!! lol

Come back again..for more pix..hopefully I'll have my spring cleaning done and my fresh decor up in a week!
Spring Blessings and Happy Easter Everyone!

Lorena,
How are you? I hope things are going well, you are in my prayers. I love the egg with the chick, it's so sweet. I need to get out my Easter decorations, they're buried in my garage still. My mum is coming for a visit for Easter thru Mother's Day, her first visit here. I'm so excited! Have a blessed weekend. Love and hugs, Victoria Lynn

These are just sooo adorable, Miss Lorena!! I love that chick one especially! I'm so glad to hear that someone else has 50 things going at once. I start in the kitchen, then the dining room, then the bedroom. And yet I never seem to finish anything lately. Sorry if you caught it from me!!

Can't wait to see more of your spring vignettes!

Happy PS Hugs,

Oh girl...I HOPE it doesn't take you 17 years to find a topper! I had to pay MORE for this find than most I scrounge up! But, it was worth it. Toooooo wonderful for the spot! It is a tiny, unbalanced corner I have. So, later today some sweet plates are going up on the far right side!

Thank you for visiting my friend. LOVE your bloggie. Love all the Easter Decor, etc! Inspiring...refreshing...I needed the smile today...

Hugs to sweet you! Reb

Love your newest creations! You almost got me motivated to Spring clean my house! Almost, not quite, guess when I see the "after" pics, I will want to do mine! lol

I am pleased to say that I have my Spring Cleaning about 90% done. The main thing I have left is to wash the windows. This I will do probably the end of May. After the last threat of snow is gone.
This is no small feat as we have floor to ceiling windows in our sunroom & they stretch 30+ feet!!
They get washed 2 times a year!
Whew... makes me tired just thinkin' about it!
Take Care!

Hi Lorena,
Your home looks like a great place to "shop"!!! Lots of lovely treasures, everywhere!!
Your Easter decorations in the kitchen look great and guess I should start thinking about spring cleaning and re-arranging the living room...
Your sneak peek at the eggs looks great and can't wait to see the finished project.
Have a great weekend.
Warmly,
Deb :)

I just love all your vignettes Lorena! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I made a few baskets to sell, they just take some time. Happy Easter!
