Just A Little Late

I always laugh when people don't put away their holiday decor in a timely matter and now I'm one of these people...yes I have joined their club. I just got around to putting away my Easter decor last week...thank goodness all of it was inside the you have all your Easter decor put away? Come on...I know one of you must still have it out on fess up and please tell me that I was not the last blogger to put their bunnies, baskets, eggs etc. away. Now since I have some new vignettes around here, I thought I would share one of them with you today. You can still link up to my NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS will up and running until link up and visit around...I promise it's a lot of fun.
                                       So happy that y'all all came by and
                                                   please be sure to come
                                             My dough bowl gets a new look!

                                                Sooooo simple...that's the look
                                                    that I'm lovin' these days.

                                                   Here I added an old coffee sack
                                                    to my favorite's my
                                                      favorite because my sweet
                                                          grandfather made it!
                                                    Found the sack at one of my
                                                 favorite shops in Auburn...$5.00.
             I'm thinking about making some pillows with
             this old burlap bag...all I need is just some

        Linking up here...
       Open House Thursday

It's not just you. I hadn't put away all my Easter decor, yet either. I just realized that I had kept my miniatures out on my foyer shelf and had to put them away today. Love the vignette! Very pretty! Can't wait to see the pillows. Thanks for sharing.

Well since I didn't decorate for Easter, then I'd say you are fine. Only so many hours in a day. Love your dough bowl vignette and the basket and sack are fabulous. Beautifully done. Hugs, Marty

I put my Easter decor away pretty quickly after Easter...but my Valentine's decor stayed out WAY too long this you're not alone! I love the basket your grandfather made, what a treasure!

Kat :)

Donna said...

You made me feel better! Mine is packed away in storage boxes but I have yet to take them to the basement!
I love your dough bowl with the jar. What a treasure the basket is! The burlap bag is great too!

Olive Cooper said...

Love that dough bowl. I put real veggies in mine on our bar but yours definitely looks smashing.

Melissa F said...

I just put my Easter decorations away last weekend LOL. So no, you are not the only one.

~ Regan said...

I love the dough bowl!~ I SO wish I could find one... Looks like I may have to learn how to make them. ;)

Blondie's Journal said...

Now that you mention it, I do have a bunny hanging on my door!! lol!

Love your vignette. I have always wanted a dough bowl. I like your arrangement inside! And what a sweet basket!

Linda your display is gorgeous. It's funny because yesterday I saw my dough bowl up on a high shelf in the garage, and thought about getting it down, talk about inpiration :) Mine is not as large as yours, but I do love them. The book looks great in it, and so handy when you're relaxing. Have a wonderful week, tami

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Hi the dough bowl. I hope to have one some day! The grain sack is fabulous, too. Did you decide to keep your PB caddy? I looked at it today in the store and walked away thinking about it (I'm a slow-poke in making a decision.) The saleslady also suggested putting it on its side and using it for towels, etc. on the bathroom countertop.....what a clever idea!

You are not alone. I've been away so much, I may never catch up!

Hi Linda,
Looks as though we are all in the same boat. Last year my Christmas Tree sat in the box in the dining room for four months! I'm not kiddin!

I love your home, it's so pretty. Love the basket with the grain sack.


Linda @ A La Carte said...

Love your new vignettes. I must admit I had my Easter down but not put away until this week. I did put up the birdies in the cubbies. Feel better now??

Cindy said...

You have such a pretty home...there is never enough time!

WhiteWhispers2u said...

It looks very comfortable and relaxing I love that look.I use to have an amazing dough bowl and sold it because it always ended up with junk in it.I now wished I still had it,it was from France which makes it even sadder.~Cheers Kim

Andrea said...

Lovely dough bowl! I've been on the search for one, but no luck yet =)

Rhonda said...

The dough bowl vignette is sooo so pretty.

Your grandfather's basket is amazing. How special to have it.
Thanks for continuing to support my party. I am thinking about renaming it "Failure To Launch"!!!
: )


ReFresh ReStyle said...

I want a dough bowl! Your's looks great! And I think you know how much I love burlap!! I've got to know what that "favorite" shop is in Auburn! I'll be there this weekend, please email me! Thanks for visiting me over at refreshrestyle!
Love your visits!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

LOVE the vignette Linda and the coffee sack looks perfect hanging over the basket!! Have a great weekend, Martina

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Very pretty! And when you find some of that 'extra' time...share it with me! Love the book! I need one! ♥ said...

It's fabulous!!

Pam said...

I just found some stray Christmas greens in the family room the other day. At this point I probably just should have left them and said I was decorating early for this year. I love that dough bowl. Very pretty!

Laurie said...

You're not alone, Linda. I put away my Easter stuff the day before yesterday!

A Cottage Muse said...

I have a bowl like that too! Love how you've filled it!!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I am diggin' the dough bowl!!! :D too, too cute!

❀ⒹⒺⒺ❀ said...

I have to say some of the bunnies are still out. I have a thing for rabbits. :-)

I love your bowl and that wonderful basket.


At The Picket Fence said...

I just put away the little bird eggs that were tucked around the house if that makes you feel any better Linda! :-) Maybe because it still feels way more like Spring than Summer here in the NW. But I really love your vignettes you've created and they are just so crisp and fresh. I think that basket is so special and I love the burlap bag hanging out! Thanks so much for linking up this week to our Inspiration Friday party!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Linda, Most of my Easter decorations stayed packed up this year so I had very little to remove. I am still finding pine needles from last Christmas though! Thank you for sharing your pretty vignette at my party. Love the dough bowl.

Debra@Common Ground said...

LOVE that dough bowl, and burlap bag!!! Shhhh....don't tell anyone, I still have few bunnies out running around! Thanks for linking up to VIF! xoxo Debra

Gail said...

After Christmas, I scour the house looking for holiday decor to put away, but of course, I always find some big honky red thing after I think I through.
Like your burlap vase.

Pattie T. said...

Fortunately I don't have Easter and Easter decor! But I'm bad about getting it all put away after Christmas so, no, you're not alone. I love the little vignette in your dough bowl. So cute. And I love the dough bowl as well!

I am always excited when I find such wonderful blogs...amplified by the fact that you are a fellow Plainsman!! Your home is your decor ideas! War Eagle!!
