My Rye Grass...

...o.k. I know I'm a few days late on Easter but I so hope you had a blessed one.  
I told you I'd share with you my lil' pots of grass I had grown for my simple Easter table so here are some pictures for ya.  Now, the first few are what is on the table now - just three simple baskets lined up in a row.  I just like the simplicity of them.
I just simply put them on my burlap runner. 
 You can see I finally got my table antiqued - no more BRIGHT white - even though I love white - it was a bit much.  My son actually said it hurt his eyes to do his homework on the table - I think that just sounds like a good excuse - how 'bout you?  However, I'm still looking for the perfect chairs.
But on Easter Sunday - the baskets were filled with eggs and my son put some lil' Peeps Chicks in there.
 And the bunny really looked like he was protecting his grass. 
We were able to celebrate Easter in our new home with our family.  We really missed Shaun's dad as it was our first Easter without him but as always - he was with us in spirit.  And Easter really is about HOPE anyway so we took comfort in that.

Have a fantastic Thursday!

Oh I love how you have decorated your new home. I am interested to know how you distressed your table. Is there a post I can look for? I am looking forward to seeing more pictures of what you are doing around your new home. I am not sure if I mentioned it but I have a new blog, stop by when you get a chance.

I grew grass for my Easter table too! I love to use it during the winter in the house. Many times I've used it for Thanksgiving decorations. It looks pretty with little pumpkins. I love your simple grass dishes on the pretty table.

The grass pics are refreshing. I've always wanted to do that...just haven't yet.
This was our first Easter, or any holiday, with out my mom, so I understand the loss. It certainly puts the resurrection in a different perspective and we rejoice knowing our goodbye to her in January isn't forever.
Blessings and peace to you.
