Here Comes Peter Cottontail...


It's absolutely beautiful here in PA this weekend. We've been busy enjoying the sun and being outside. The kids are having fun walking around the house and looking at the plants that are slowly coming out of hiding.

The most exciting thing over here though is that our powder room floor is done! The tile is in and grouted and sealed. I think for his first tiling job ever, my hubby did amazing!

We went with a light gray grout and I love how vintage it feels. A bit of moulding to finish up and we can put the fixtures in. We are thisclose to finishing it, so exciting! I'll post lots of pictures when it's all pretty and done. After all this work, I'm not going to want anyone to use it. Hmmmm....maybe it should be like our "formal bathroom." You know like a "formal living room" that you can't touch and no one ever goes in except to look at it or dust it? No? Okay, okay, we'll use it but I don't have to be happy about it.


Easter decorations are simple over here. A few bunnies and eggs and we call it good.....







This fluffy tree is from Hobby Lobby. The branches are soft like a bunny tail...




All it took to make it festive were some gift tags, ball fringe and of course an egg or two....


















To my blog readers that celebrate Easter, I hope you have a wonderful day with family. Try not to overdo it on the chocolate! And definitely don't go to the hidden stash, take out a bag of jelly beans and eat them in front of the TV when you're supposed to be watching calories until you have a stomach ache. Not that I would have any experience with that whatsoever...


I'll finally be posting about my secret project next week so stay tuned. Have a beautiful weekend everyone!

Your tile is BEAUTIFUL!!! I can't stress that enough! I love that you went with a gray grout, it has a much more vintage feel. Well done!
Everything looks lovely - so springy and fresh. I'll take that white cupboard off your hands anyday! I love the sheet music ~

Have a wonderful Easter ~

The powder room is really coming along nicely. I like the grey instead of standard white grout.
I laughed at your jelly bean story as I just did the same last night and felt sooo bad about it.

Happy Easter.

Ok so I LOVE your blog, we had that same floor on our first home-and being young-first home when we were selling it we figured we should paint it to brighten up for buyers coming through- Well we used plain old house paint.. Looked ok- but as time went on your feet stuck to it.. Not the best idea.But now that im into the vintage style- i so miss that floor.
Love your pics, your buffet with music sheets (LOVE IT) i just did a cabinet like that as well-just for fun, not sure how it would work- But i Really LIKE yours..
GREAT BLOG i will become a follower.
