A late Easter...

Hi there! I told you I would re-cap you with Easter and stuff.....but haven't really had the time....honestly though, I have been spending more time with my tumblr......guilty!! But it's better late then never right? hahaha anyway, here is my Easter decorating for this year. My main focus was the colour.....can you guess? WHITE! I had these lovely things here and I painted them white!
(Thanks Aunt Li for the chick planter!)
It turned out pretty cute, right?
I also painted some eggs! I got these from the dollarstore and painted and glittered them white.
I stuck them in a jar and put them on the kitchen table, along with the painted bunnies, lovely flowers Mike got me and some fake flowers as well. ( do you like my salt and pepper egg shakers?)
(The base used to be a basket.....when my mom picked it up the whole bottom fell off and she was just holding the handle....hahahahah....I thought it was a pretty cool tray!)
I made some other pretty eggs with foam eggs
I wrapped and glued...
I'm bad and don't even have a finished picture! (They turned out really nice though)

It was my mom's birthday and Mike and I had my fam over for dinner. 
I made these cute nests with shredded wheat and marshmallows. I also added chocolate to make them more brown. I used them as place cards.

Here are some more decorations:
It was a great dinner and a great Easter. I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life!
What I am working on:
* my bedroom - I painted it again (the 3rd time is less then 4 years) Here is a sneak peak
* The hall - I still haven't showed you what I did with my little reading nook
* a spring mantel
* and a few other small projects I have yet to show you/finish

I am really bad at starting something, not finishing it and moving on to something else! But I am working on changing that! hahahah I will also update you with wedding stuff...hopefully next week!
This is what my chalkboard said last weekend
I'm getting excited! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.
( I will start being a better blogger!)
