Decorating Dilemna Going On

I started putting the St Patrick's Day decorations away on St Patrick's Day and pulled out my Easter stuff...

Things are looking pretty and springy but I was stumped as to how to accessorize the top of the hutch in our dining room. I normally have it one way and it stays that way for a very long time but I decided to give it an update...


Here's what it looked like, some good stuff but yet kind of blah...

So I called on Brenda from Cozy Little House and ask her for help...
If you've never checked out her place, you're in for a treat - her home is so wonderful and sure to make you smile....she has a wonderful place...


Whenever I try to decorate the top of the hutch, I have to work around these light fixtures and cords...
(kind of dusty too!)

I use books to lift things up...and work around the electrical stuff...

well let me just show you...


I used quite a few books this time around...


I pulled out the vintage suitcase that I bought last year at a thrift store...still debating on whether I should paint it or not..

Probably get cracking on my banner this weekend...

I wanted to keep the bunny since I'm going for a spring/Easter vignette..


And the frame stays, love the Subway Art from


Brenda suggested something green so I added a plant that needs to be up high so the cats don't chew on it...
and put the lantern on a candlestick that I got from Goodwill...


and my decorating dilemna is now solved!

Thank you Brenda!

Don't you just love my window hanging to the side...

Looks great Terry! When I first saw the hutch, my first thought was..."it needs a plant on top". And that is what you did! Love it! Your house is awesome. Hey friend...how did Monday go?

I think the plant you added just makes that vignette sing! It's the right shape and size and everything. I'm so glad I was of some help to you.

I think it looks great, but I would get some ribbon in your favorite color in the framed art and tie a little on bunny's neck, maybe through the handle of the suitcase, and then get a candle that same color for the candle-holder. I think the pops of color would make it all come together!
