Easter Pink Tablescape


Welcome to Tablescape Thursday, hosted by

This Easter Pink table is my second attempt at a tablescape. I hope you enjoy it!



I have been slowly adding to my collection of items suitable for tablescapes. This week I found the white wire napkin rings at Pier One, a great deal for $1.56 CDN each. I picked up the pink tablecloth and bunny last year at HomeSense. The bunny and tablecloth were my inspiration pieces. I hope to have a camera one day that will allow me to take better photos and more close-ups.

I also picked up the two white chargers at HomeSense. I was looking for six, but after checking other HomeSense stores I have not had any luck. I will keep them though as they will be great for dinner for two, as small platters, for mix and match, etc.


The cute pink plates are from HomeSense also. I have 7 pink ones and 7 blue ones that I sometimes use stacked on a buffet as dessert plates. The crystal is Crystal D'Arque Longchamp pattern.



While I love my harvest table, I am not thrilled with the finish on the top (too light). I plan to sand it down and stain it darker this summer. I am looking for new dining room chairs too. These are only temporary, I hope:) The little wine cupboard in the background is great for storing my crystal, candles, and smaller tablescape finds.


The white dinner plates are part of my 16 place settings from PC (Presidents Choice) that I bought at RealCanadianSuperstore this past Christmas 2008. Stainless silverware, Lagostina, from Canadian Tire. Thanks for visiting and be sure to see all the tablescapes at Susan's.

Met Monday Master bathroom ~~Adding some paint and accessories


Welcome to Met Monday, hosted by Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/

I would like to share my master bathroom update. We have lived in our current home for 10 years and while we have painted some rooms twice, our master bathroom ensuite went unpainted all that time. I decided on a coastal feel for this room and painted it a soothing aqua colour. My sister-in-law gave me the seaside figures for my birthday recently.
We love to camp and spend time at the great beaches here in Ontario and hope to visit Cape Cod and Prince Edward Island soon.
We have a large and deep oval Jacuzzi soaker tub and separate shower.

I love to soak in the tub and read my favourite magazines. This bag holds them all neatly. Nothing like stepping out onto a soft cushy white bathmat.

Although we have four bathrooms, my boys often shower in here. We have found the hooks to be more useful than towel bars~~the towels are less likely to end up on the floor! This past summer I was looking for chrome or black hooks and knobs for the lower cabinets. When I saw the price I decided to have some fun with a can of satin black spray paint instead.

I love the colours of these antique mason jars. The glass is such a pretty blue-green and so wavy and irregular.
Oops, time to add some more bars of soap! There is also supposed to be a small cloche with a birds nest in this photo (that rule of three), the kids must have moved it and I didn't notice :)

I love love love white fluffy towels. My towels and facecloths in here are actually a mix of whites, blues and light brown but I forgot to take those photos. We added this tall cupboard for extra storage as our sink cabinet (not shown) is not that big.

I love these little white wicker balls for the texture they add. I need to find the right spot for them.
We still need to get a new light for over the sink and possibly a small chandelier for the center of the ceiling. A new non-builder faucet for the sink would be great too. I also hope to trim the plain builder mirror. If I ever get the courage, I will try crown-moulding too. So many ideas, so little time and budget. But, I will post more photos when we get these things done. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the other Met Mondays.
