Home Sweet Home

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home # 61!  I didn't want to let Easter go by and not try a tablescape.  I keep making smaller and smaller tables.  I have just put together a single place setting today, but you get the idea.

I took a vintage silver plate creamer and added some spring violets.   I was deciding on the flower to feature on this table that would evoke a spring woodland and the violet was my favorite pick.

I found this fantastic woody open weave basket this weekend it was perfect for the woodland theme.  I added reindeer moss and two eggs and it looks like the birds themselves created this Easter basket.

I will never tire of mixing rustic natural elements with formal settings.  Every one have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Now I would like to highlight some of the posts that caught my eye last week at Home Sweet Home.

 Sylvia of Sylvia's Simple Life beautiful spring tea was a feast for the eyes!

Rebekah and Kandi of Woven Home shared a fantastic recipe for Chocolate Silk Cheesecake!

Jacqueline at Cabin and Cottage did a charming post on the old fashion dry goods store.

Betsy of Betsy Speert's Blog showed her tropical cottage bedroom.
