Easter all around the house

My Easter decorations are out. I did not go all out this year like I usually do. I am transitioning my house from primitive-ish to I don't know what. Pottery Barn-ish I guess. Here is how we do Easter at my house and by we, I mean, me. My husband and two boys live here too. They have no interest in this stuff. That is why I come here to show you :)

  We are going around the living room. Prep yourself for lots of pictures.

Now on to Easter in the potty:

Everyone needs a duck with a nest of blue eggs on the potty. My 7 year old said, "Mom, what the heck?"

I know these pictures are bad but there is no window in our bathroom.

Another close up of our duck. Do ducks nest? I have no idea but if they do I am pretty positive they don't carry their nest on their backs. 
Now down the hallway to the kitchen.

Remember my Early Spring Mantel? You can see the post here. My fireplace is actually in the hallway leading to the kitchen.
Now the kitchen: Warning..lots of pictures.

 Bunnies hiding :)

Now the last room decked out for Easter is my mudroom.

Now down the stairs to the basement and the back door. I'm not taking you in the actual basement because it is my laundry room and it is not decorated and messy! 

Down that cave-like area is the basement and the backdoor is behind us. Here is a fun fact: my house is really only 950 square feet plus the basement. You can't include the basement square feet though because it is for storage and a laundry room only. So 4 people and 2 dogs live here. I have to keep it extremely organized!

Thanks for checking out Easter at my house,

  1. It looks like you're ready for Easter. I love the "potty duck" and cute egg shaped soaps. Lots of nice photos.

  2. Thank you! The potty duck is my favorite :)

  3. You have a lovely home and lots of great vintage items. Love your backsplash in the kitchen. Thanks for joining WUW again.

  4. Stacy, I love all of your spring and Easter touches in your home...really lovely! It's all gorgeous, but I especially love the wooden tray filled with candles and forsythia and the beadboard detail on the stairs.

  5. Will you come organize my home for me? You have done an amazing job!

    It's nice that we have this forum to share what we love with those who appreciate them since the men in our lives usually don't!

  6. I love all of your pretty touches...some of them very simple but dramatic! Spring is so much fun to decorate for...pretty things in every room! ♥

  7. Thank you everyone! We are out growing this house fast but it will be hard to let it go :)

  8. I've so enjoyed seeing your lovely home! What sweet decorations you have and you are ready for spring and Easter.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  9. How pretty! I love that you take time to decorate in unexpected places.

  10. Everything looks so pretty!! Martina

    Stopped over from Kim's WUW party!

  11. I love your fresh eggs sign!

  12. Great ideas - thanks for the inspiration! I just adore your little mudroom. Your home seems much larger in the photos. We only have 1190 sf so I know what you mean, but you seem to be missing the piles of stuff that we have around here :))
    Cheers, Andrea

  13. You have SUCH a charming house! Is there room for one more? Great blog. I'm here from Kim's party. I'm also your newest follower!

  14. Wow, love your home! I am your newest follower, looking forward to more posts. Diane

  15. Wow! Your home is beautiful. I found your blog on the link party Look What I Found. Love it. Can't wait to read more!

  16. Your home is really charming, & it's very hard to believe the size. You've done a great job of making it feel larger. Your Easter things are so sweet. I'm a new follower & would love to have you visit my blog & maybe follow back.

  17. I loved seeing lots of pictures of your home decorated for Easter. Don't ever worry that you are putting too many up for us to see.

  18. Your home is quite lovley, Stacy. And I sure never would have guessed all that charm was squeezed into 950 sq. ft. ;) I understand the challenges of small spaces though. Hubby and I moved from a home with over 2,000 sq. ft. to one with under 1,000 - when we moved to our little farm. Keeps you on your toes! ;)

    By the way, your comments about the duck and his nest cracked me up. Thanks for linking to the party again.
