Spring Fabulous!

Here in Mobile we are smack dab in the middle of Mardi Gras. Since I work downtown where the Mardi Gras parades and hoopla are going on-- and since I don't do Mardi Gras -- today was a perfect day to take a vacay day. More on that later.

The firm where I work apparently has a new policy. When a secretary reaches a milestone anniversary with the firm, they receive a bouquet of flowers. I was so shocked when I received these last week:

I reached my 5 year anniversary. A dozen beautiful, velvet red roses! I could not believe it. I think some of the secretaries were jealous. Holla! All joking aside, in this economy, I'm thankful to have a job! And to get flowers from your company? Unbelievable! I'm blessed to work for a great firm!

So what did I do today? A booth re-do, of course! Presenting Ms. Jackie's Junque all ready for Spring.

Jacob made these FABULOUS tissue paper pom poms. They add so much whimsy! My hubby hung them from monofilament line (ok-fishing line) so they look like they are suspended in the air.

A close up of the blue pom pom:

This Gladiolus vase has been in the booth since day one. I added the faux flowers and put it front and center. I hope someone decides they can't live without it and wants to take it home with them.

Beautiful bird needlepoint:

Easter tablecloth and 4 napkins:

The CUTEST old woman in the shoe planter. You know her, right? She had so many children she didn't know what to do!

Plenty of Easter and Spring fabric:

Collection of blue and white items:

Cute "travel" prints :

Cute strawberry items. Or "trawberry" since I cut the "S" out of the picture. I have mad picture taking skills and don't you forget it!

So, by now, you realize that there is no rhyme or reason to the order of these photographs. I'm tired of fighting Blogger to get them rearranged. So stay with me.

More strawberry items.

These are some Far East items that I have grouped together on the Mid Century vanity that we took today. This is one sweet vanity. I'm not fond of light furniture but this piece is very nice. The drawers glide like melted buttah:

A close up of a cute Easter bunny:

My mannequin all dressed for Easter:

Look at that scrumptious fabric yo yo pillow. The fabrics have to be from the '40s and '50s.

This is a whole shelf full of country music and books. Dolly Parton. Johnny Cash. George Jones. Loretta Lynn. Minnie Pearl. Jerry Clower. Kenny Rogers and Dottie West. The group Alabama! (Roll Tide) (You'd have to be from Alabama to understand that one. You can't say Alabama without saying Roll Tide!)

Shelf chock full of left over Valentine's day angels. Repurposed, regrouped, ready for a good home.

More blue and white items:

Ok--so here's where the pictures get sketchy. For some reason I cannot get them to center in my post. So let's roll with them like this. Mmmmkk? We're almost done. . .

The above picture is a close up of my Easter items. Beautiful Last Supper mirror, Italian Last Supper figurine, a communion cup, a Southern Living at Home cross and more. I wanted to do something to commemorate the true meaning of Easter. Christ made the ultimate sacrifice. The bunnies are cute--but that's not what it's all about.

Another shot of the MCM vanity. Look at the abacus lamp with collapsible shade.
Well, that about wraps it up. Sorry this post is so image heavy. But, it's a great way to keep up with what's in the booth. One more picture before I go. . . . Can you find Jesus in the puzzle?

From Luke 11:9-10:

And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given unto you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it will be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Happy Easter!

I love the way you use the scrabble tiles and racks as signage/labels for your areas. How cleverly cool!
