Show and Tell Friday - 4/3 - Sideboards and Cupboards

It's Show and Tell Friday. I think this is so fun because you never know what you're going to discover. I love the uniqueness of blogging...our individual tastes, regional differences, old and new memories and sharing. Kelli is waiting for you over at There is no place like Home. I bet there's a long line!

By now, you know I love Spring! I love the outdoors, the green grass, the bunnies, bulbs, azaleas, blue birds in a house (have I got a story about that). It is like my world comes alive in the Spring! Easter holds such a deep and precious meaning to me. I hope to attend a Sunrise service this year.

So, with that said, I have Spring all over my house! Here's some more highlights:

This is the top of the sideboard. The little lambs are by Raz. I told you I loved Raz! The pink Bordallo egg holder is from Marshall's.

I used these nosegays last year on my dining table but decided to move them for this year.

This little bunny has been with me for years. I have used him with candles in the baskets, greenery...just endless possibilities.

This is one of my precious keepsakes. It was Mother's and was on her coffee table forever. She loved this bowl. No one loved pink and glass like my mother!

The cross also has special memories. My mother's nieces went into together and sent a gorgeous floral arrangement to her funeral. Mother would have loved it. The cross was in the arrangement. I've used it in different place in my home since last July. It reminds me of Mother and of my sweet double first cousins who loved my mother.

In the kitchen, I have a small grouping on an oak cupboard.

From left to right, a Holland ceramic handmade cabbage soup tureen

The silver rabbit tray you saw yesterday with a jelly bean candle holder. Do you remember this? I used it with red hots in February. It has LOVE etched on the front.

On the far right are two Bordallo cabbage serving bowls.

Be back Saturday for another Pink Saturday!

Great Easter decorations. Love the lambs -- bunnies are typically Easter but so are lambs and we often forget them! Great bunny!

Have a nice Sunday.

Very pretty, I love Easter also, it was a delight to wonder through all your photos, thanks for sharing. I liked the lambs, your little bunny is so cute and your mothers bowl, it looks like depression glass. Hope you are having a nice Sunday, it is still chilly here.

It is so much fun touring your house - even if from afar. Absolutely beautiful. It must be a real joy to walk through your home on a daily basis.
