SSS

After spending 4 days sorting through all the stuff my kids had accumulated at our unit over the last 13 years I have decided I need to keep telling myself…simple, simple, simple. That’s how I need to get my life under control. If I thought there was a lot of cr.. stuff in our unit I can only begin to imagine how much is in the farmhouse after 36 years!!! I am trying to sort through cupboards and drawers and reduce the amount of possessions I have.  Tablescapes will now be set with only dinnerware I have on hand, I will not buy new things (well, maybe just a few) and most important I will reduce my weight by walking and exercising more. Sounds simple, doesn’t it!!!  Well, here’s the start of things to come. My simple, simple table. I set this little Easter morning tea table to share with my 4 grandies.  The table is very rustic (I think that’s what the real estate agents would call it but really I think it is just old!).  Actually I think the whole garden looks a little ‘rustic’ after our long hot summer but today I spent about 4 hours trying to get rid of some weeds.  It looks a little better already.  I am really enjoying our lovely autumn weather at the moment.

It’s so hard to believe Easter is right on our door step – where is this year going?

Beautiful spring table all in lavender! Gorgeous teapot and the bunny is too cute! I need to clean out, too. Seems like everything I pick up is a treasure -- some story/memory attached that I don't want to (not ready to) part with. Ah, well. When I do run across something that doesn't have a *feel* to -- out it goes! Good luck with simplifying. Happy Spring and Happy Easter! Happy Tea Day!

Terri said...

Oh now that is a totally gorgeous outdoor tea table! I love the violet and white. Perfect for spring and Easter!
Hugs,

Your Easter table is perfect. We will be next door at our neighbor's for Easter so I won't be setting a table. But, I will get to enjoy hers.

Happy Easter.

Really very lovely!

Alycia Nichols said...

Hi there, Suzy! I'll bet you are SICK of going through boxes and possessions! It's great that you are taking the time to do a little purging, though. It really is a therapeutic measure! I admire your pledge to cut down on the amount of dishes and things that come into the unit from this day forward. I have done the same. It's hard sometimes to pass things up that I really, really like, but it's not impossible! :-) As for the losing weight thing, I fear I may never get on board that train! Your table is so, so pretty! I love purple pansies, and all of the purple flowers you have both on the table and in the background are gorgeous. That's a super cute bunny overseeing it all, too! Happy Easter to you and your family, and I hope you're able to continue to enjoy these nice autumn days!

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Very pretty table! Love the purples and the violets. Beautiful plates and a sweet bunny! They all seem so enhanced on your aged table surface! I wish it was warm enough here to consider being outdoors. Happy Easter!

This is such a simple, yet beautiful table, Suzy. Funny you are looking forward to cooler weather and we are looking for warmer weather! We had another big snow storm Saturday, but most has already melted.
Happy Easter!
