A little Easter Decorating On The Front Porch

Hello and Happy Weekend Everyone. It was a gorgeous Spring day in Olympia today! I really enjoyed spending some time outside, decorating the front porch a little, before Easter has come and gone....

I will keep it short and sweet today, my Mom surprised me for my 40th Birthday with a visit from Germany, so we have Company and I am a lucky girl!!!

I always prefer to decorate with natural things

like this old galvanized wash tub, it makes a perfect Easter nest

and this old vintage wooden berry crate

and an old rusty bucket with flowers...perfect
I stole some hay from our Bunny for the Easter

Thanks so much for stopping by !!!!
