my "holiday forum" friends -- I need "motivation" to put out my "bunnies"

Can't imagine Easter is 2 weeks or so away and I really wanted to motivate myself to take out my Easter and Spring, but, life got in the way.

 

So, as usual how about posting some pics of all your beautiful Easter/Spring decor ... for sure that will get me a "movin"...

 

thank you!

@homedecor1    Hey, go easy on yourself.  Unless you're having a big shindig, there's no necessity for decorating unless you feel like it.  Decorating is supposed to be fun but if becomes a drag due to other responsibilities, don't feel bad about skipping it.  In the great scheme of things, what difference does it make? 

 

How is your dh doing?

I get it @homedecor1 .

I didn't do anything for St Patrick's day and I usually do. It's a big one in our family.

But for Easter, I just have some pretty eggs and tiny baskets I'll put out for the little ones.

Then my daughter does the rest.

 

Sometimes I have my favorite little snowmen, deer all year.

Then can just put out a little of other holidays. Not like Christmas or fall you know when everything comes out.

Its' fun that way and not so overwhelming.

And if you really don't feel like it, skip it and wait for the next one-4th of July or something.😊

Please don't feel bad. I just noticed yesterday that my Christmas wreath is still up. I guess l'm so used to seeing it that it became part of the decor. Anyway that's my story and I'm sticking to it. 🤣

I pretty much left all but Christmas tree, outdoor lights, and flags on Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day by the wayside years ago.

 

Honestly?  I don't miss it.

The other day, I was sitting on our front porch and it was dark. I looked to the side and one of our neighbors still had their colored Christmas lights on their tree!

I loved seeing it and it made me happy. So keep your wreath up there!

Tomorrow (March 19) ours get set out. Will also decorate the bench on our front porch with some cute Easter pillows.

@Kachina624 

 

Ty my friend for asking...he still has the residual "cough" from pnuemonia he had late December.  We saw pulmonary specialist who asked for cat scan which he had last week--within a hour dr called saw a "mass" on his left lung.  Yesterday, we went for pet scan🙄poor guy everyday something else...and he is getting disgusted!!! 

 

Keeping our fingers crossed nothing serious next week we see pulmonary dr. for follow-up.

 

Now, for the decorating part -- love my 🐰🐇 but motivation is what I need (I'm in a little funk☹️).  I finally received the area rugs I ordered back in October -- by now I'd have them out. NOPE still in wrappings slid under DRtable..who knows late at night I might get a "burst of energy" and unroll them😉.

 

Thank you for asking about spouse & pointing out as others @on the bay @QVCkitty1 @Sooner @Mary Bailey no rules just enjoy and do when I feel like it BUT I will for sure take out my big Mommy & Daddy sisal bunnies with my egg tree🐰

@homedecor1    Did you get pads for those rugs?  They're not expensive and they make an area rug feel so much more luxurious.
