Easter Tablescape

So, my Easter tablescape is complete. Yay! To view photos, etc. click here. To be totally honest I had no idea what I was going to do with the wheatgrass as it's height peaked a bit before I was ready. I spent most of the weekend printing papers and assembling the pinwheels. Spent most of Sunday creating the tablescape and taking pictures of the pinwheels - both as part of the tablescape and also separately for use in selling the pinwheels. Then spent the past two evenings importing these items into Etsy. Now, I'm finally finding time to post the pictures.
Funny story about the tablescape, I created it while Roger was working outside in the yard. By the time he came back inside for a break, I'd taken all of the photos and disassembled the tablescape. I guess I should have had him come look, but I was so rushed it didn't even occur to me. Just knew that I wouldn't have time to deal with rotting wheat grass this week so I trashed it at the height of it's prettiness. Kind of sad, I know. Although, I just volunteered to host Easter this year so I really wish that wheat grass would last weeks instead of days. As I'm a gluten for punishment, it looks like I'll be growing another round of wheat grass for my actual Easter centerpieces. :)
Wow - I can't believe it's Wednesday already! We leave for vacation on Saturday morning - I've not done a thing. Haven't gotten out my summer clothes (I hope they still fit!), done any laundry (have an overflowing Laundry basket!), or started to gather items (since we are camping I have a 2 page list!). Plus the house is a mess - like total chaos as I've been working too much lately. It'll need to be cleaned before we go. I'm strange about that - in my neighborhood I always worry that someone will break in, and if that happened it would be totally embarrassing if the cops arrived to a dirty house! (That's why I tell Roger we have to make the bed each morning!) I'm weird, I realize this.
On that note, I should get some actual vacation work done. Yay!

Those photos were wonderful. That tablescape is really soooo pretty! I love the nests and the little bird with the pinwheels. The grass turned out great.

Have a great vacation.
