Welcome To The 15th Masterpiece Monday

I thought that this week I'd post an Easter table scape,
using my favorite set of Easter dishes.
I love the different patterns of blue and they're
small and shaped like an egg. 
They're originally from Pottery Barn. I found this set at
GW last year for $5.99.
I just needed the right centerpiece, so I shopped
around in my house for something Springy.
I decided to borrow the birdcage that's been
sitting next to "Old Rusty" lately.
I already had the branches and book's inside.
I just added some shredded sheet music
and bird votives.
These vintage glasses were my mom's and I love the design.





I just started collecting mis-matched pieces of vintage silverware, acutally these are only silver-plated. But I like them and they were only .50 cents each at the Swap-Meet.


My husband brought home this original pencil sketch from the
Swap-meet many years ago, and it remains
our favorite picture in our home.
This past Christmas as I was taking out the Christmas nativity,
I decided to use the sheep for Easter.
Jesus, Lamb of God.

Mary,
Same thing happened to me and I paid the 5 bucks for more space. I had tons of more space instantly and I feel it is worth the 5 bucks a year. With 2 blogs and tons of pics, I am only at 4 % now of all the space that the 5 bucks buys so I feel it is a good investment rather than to delete your pics.

Hugs,
Deb

Haven't run out of space so far- keeping fingers crossed!

Finally got the tute on the purse done- Hope it makes sense!

I've heard about this problems so many times before. I've even tried to delete some of my pictures and it won't let me. I hope you get this squared away before too long. Thanks so much for hosting the party.

Your spring/Easter vignette is beautiful. I love the little lambs on that beautiful old bible! Love the pencil sketch of Jesus with the lamb. I am going to keep an eye out for one similar.

I just love those dishes. And that lamb print is precious. It seems that people focus on eggs at Easter but lambs are so significant!
