Easter On The Buffet

Hello, Dear Ones. Well, I'm still Eastering here and I thought I would show you my buffet. Which, by the way, will work just fine for Spring!
Here's my olden buffet and you can see by the door on the right side that's ajar the wood has shrunk and it will not stay closed during the winter time. I just hate this! We got a humidifier put down in the basement when is supposed to bring some moisture in through the forced heat vents. I don't think it's doing a good job. Any way...
It's so nice to pull out some pieces from my Butterfly Meadows set. They just scream "Springtime"! I love screaming dishes, don't you?
Okie dokie, of course I had to have a little piece of Milk Glass. Actually this piece has been on the buffet before Christmas and I thought it could just stay. I poked a little crocheted doily my grandmother made and poked down the vase with some fauxs. I placed a tiny little BM bowl with Easter grass and a few little eggs.
Then this darling little rabbit and the salt and peppers.
The other side holds the butterfly egg dish ( I love this piece! ), honey pot and an olden little bunny carrying flowers. All of these little treasures are sitting on a lace runner.
I'm so very thankful for our new/old house and how God has brought us from the south to Yankeeland! :) I'm so thankful I'm able to get around a lot better now. In the house I'm just walking around, with a limp of course, and when I'm out I walk with my cane! My little granddaughter, Carter, is doing so much better and again ~ I'm so very thankful. With the newness of Spring just around the corner, I reflect on how God's continues to bless me and how thankful I am. I pray I never neglect to thank Him for His kindness to me. Blessings to you, all my Dear Ones.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Thankful

 I felt your gentle rain
You wash over my heart again
And I find You here
I Find You here
You take me by the hand
And when I dont understand
You hold me
You hold me

To the cross I come again
I'm so thankful, I'm thankful
You're mercy over me again
I'm so thankful, living God
I wanna thank You living God

In the light of day
You're truth defies my way
And You call me Yours
I'm forever Yours

For eternity,
You will be, You will be
Yesterday, today and forever,
You remain the same

To the cross I come again
I'm so thankful, I'm thankful
You're mercy over me again
I'm so thankful, living God

To the cross I come again
I'm so thankful, I'm thankful
You're mercy over me again
I'm so thankful, living God
I wanna thank You living God

    There is a timeless look in your dining room, so pretty and lacey. I love the butterfly egg holder.

  6. So good to hear you and Carter are doing better, Sheila! I must need new glasses because I can barely make out a hint of a door not being shut on your buffet. If you hadn't told us we wouldn't have ever known. I do wish you and your family a Happy Easter!

  7. When I saw Easter on the Buffet I hopped right on over (no pun intended here!) I just knew this was going to be a treat and it is!

    So glad that you are getting stronger and stronger, you are always in my thoughts.
    Please share some of your pretty posts with us, if you can on Thursday:)
    Happy Easter!
    Hugs~

  8. I like dishes that shout too! Sometimes when I am shopping, a dish will shout out at me: "Take me home with you!" It happens quite often ;-) I am so glad that both you and Carter are doing better now. That's a real blessing!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

    Thank you for that!
    How did you hang those plates so perfectly?

  13. Oh- How pretty it all looks, Sheila! I love it. I am looking at your buffet and I believe it is the same one my mother had in our big old country kitchen when I was growing up...well not THAT one but one just like it. You know that top middle drawer? She put PIES in there!! lol xo Diana

  15. I heard your anniversary was around this date, Shelia, so I popped over to wish you many more happy, healthy years together!
    Obviously, I've not visited in a long time, as I didn't know you moved. Last I touched base, I knew you had hurt your knee & were laid up. I'm glad to see you're mobile again & back to doing pretty decorations. They all look lovely!
    BTW, you're not that late with Easter...I'm just now getting mine out after putting away all the green stuff from St. Patrick's day!
    Have a Blessed Easter, Hon & enjoy the grandkidlets.

  17. I love your screaming dishes! I only started decorating earlier for holidays since I began blogging. I don't remember doing it much more than the week before the holiday in the past. I'm glad to know your knee is getting better and your getting around a lot more. I'm especially happy to know Carter is doing much better. There's nothing worse than having a little one get sick with something so frightening. Thank goodness for modern medicine and the good doctors out there! Wishing you a blessed and happy Easter!
