I have looked all over the house for our Easter decorations. I keep them in a clear plastic storage box with a green top.
We don’t have much but I’d like to put out a few hints of spring this week.
After looking from the attic to the basement and everywhere in between I thought I might have stashed a box in the attic in the Cottage. I found a box of vases which also was storing 2 sets of hot rollers for hair. No wonder I can’t find anything.
Finally yesterday morning I cleared my mind and went back up in the attic in the house. After moving around a few boxes I spied a blue plastic storage tub with a blue top labeled “Easter”. That’s right, blue not green.
Everything from chicks to bunnies to eggs to egg holders for dying eggs were all packed safely away.
I even found some small egg-shaped soaps which I put in a small basket to remind us of new life.
I put these on an occasional table which also holds a cross bottle; a small bowl, pitcher, and towel; and a Limoges box with a fishing boat by the side of the sea.
All of these items remind me of Jesus and so are perfect for an Easter tableau.
But I digress. I put away the owl and the pussycat and replaced them on the kitchen window sill with a wooden bunny box.
Finally I’m embracing the hope of spring with floral pillows on the side porch.
By the way, today begins the 6th year of this blog.
What have you put away for safe keeping that you can’t find?
