Spring Tablescape

In case you were wondering...

My dining table is no longer clear.

But it's not as bad as it used to be.

I had to have a place to put my new Easter eggs.








They are so pretty.

Plus, I have this really awesome urn that I painted up with some Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Typewriter.





What? That doesn't look like Typewriter - which is of course black. I waxed it a couple of times with Miss Mustard Seed White Wax

And it is SPECTACULAR! (that's a Seinfeld reference for those of you who might be too young to know)




So I filled it up with some sphagnum moss, some moss covered balls, and of course the eggs. Then I threw down a bunch of my Quickfire Hydrangea blossoms and a Quickfire Hydrangea garland and called it a day.

But  I didn't clean up my mess from the other things I've been working on so there won't be any full table photography here. Sometimes it's not good that your dining room table has the best light in the house, but it is the hallway for the rest of the downstairs rooms in the house. That means to take pictures there I have to clean 5 rooms. 

And well,

That ain't happening.

Thus the tight shots.





Someday I'm going to set the table and have a real tablescape. Until then . . . 





P.S. Is anybody out there really tired of hearing the words Quickfire Hydrangea?

Oooh Karen, I am so in love with your centerpiece! How adorable are those eggs! Very, very clever and original. And of course I love anything with hydrangeas in it. I didn't know about the MMS color of typewriter and that she has white wax. It looks like it creates a wonderful chalky finish. Thank you for introducing me to that. And thank you too for linking up to Swing Into Spring. Happy first day of spring!

Ah yes, the plight of the dining room table. The largest flat surface in most households. Mine is experiencing the same problem right now. At least yours has this lovely oasis!

Well, I see I have missed out on your craftapalooza! All your hydrangea projects are beautiful, Karen. Have a good weekend!

Those eggs look lovely in your urn. Who cares what the rest of the table looks like when you are focused on that loveliness!

So pretty, and I really love those eggs! I featured this on my blog today and I'm just stopping by to pin it!
