I've always loved Easter..
My mother used to decorate the middle of our large dining room table with Easter grass and baskets for all of us children. There were four and I was the eldest.
But my mom is gone now and Easter is a time I remember my parents and our Easter's.
This year, Easter is at PH's and my home and it's been a long time since that happened.
A new baby girl that will be born this Thursday to my granddaughter, Rachel, will keep us in town.
No going to the beach this year..
when a dear online friend, Jean, sent me a photo she had found of an umbrella arrangement for the front door...I decided to try it. Jean sent the picture and wrote "It's got your name all over it." :)
I had to wing it. Could not find directions..but..it's no wonder.
Simple as heck!
I found this umbrella at Target for $12 and the flowers I had around the house.
(got lotsa flowers!)
The hanger looks black in the photo, but it's gold.
I should probably buy new ribbon..found this in the bottom of my sewing basket and it looks it.
Most of the flowers...ALL the rose stems go clear to the bottom of the umbrella..
I tucked Spanish moss every place I could tuck it...
No hot glue at all..if I take everything out, the umbrella could be used as intended without a speck on it.
AND I did have to buy the fern and nest. Pier 1 had it.
So..I'm just...about...ready. Working on that patio now.
Hope you like it.
It's not much of a post but it's better than nothing at all...right?
