A Slightly different View!

What a difference a few miles makes….

Everything looks very beautiful. We’re so happy to be here! As much as I LOVE Florida, I miss the mountains sometimes.

Do you have special plans for the weekend?

The charmingly lovely Easter decorations - and the ones in the previous post - are really inspiring. Until our move, I'd never felt like I had room to store anything but a very tightly edited selection of Halloween and Christmas items, but secretly always yearned to add some Easter ones to the collection, too.

Now that we've moved into a home that's a little bigger, I look forward to hopefully doing just that, and love having posts like this to turn for holiday inspiration.

Thank you very much for your comment this morning on my "What have you always loved" post. I really appreciate it (and wish you the best of luck with the blog prize draw that your comment automatically entered you in).


Wishing you a serenely beautiful Easter weekend,
Jessica

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

Bee-u-tee-ful scenery. We are having a nice quiet Easter. Mom & Dad are cooking and I'm eatin' (giggle).

Happy Easter.

I miss the mountains sometimes, too, I grew up in the mountains of PA and moved to Florida for several years and then married and moved to the Midwest. Someone sent me a video of the mountains of PA last week and it made me kind of homesick.

I hope the weather is nice for you for the rest of your time there. It is a beautiful spot indeed! xo Diana

What stunning photos! Wishing you and yours a very Happy Easter!

Dayle @ A Collection of This and That said...

Such gorgeous blooms. I love the mountains, as well.

Our weekend will, hopefully, find us in church (it's hard whenever you're away from home). Other than that, we will probably just chill on Sunday.

Donna said...

Hope you have a nice visit and safe trip back home! We don't have any special plans for this weekend. Next week we will be heading out for our trip to IN, OH, and KY.

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

Oh that lovely vintage Easter tablecloth is to die for.

I enjoy the mountains. I haven't been in awhile. I think your M-i-L tablecloth and Easter decorations are cute. Happy Easter!~Ames

Hello name mate! The place is definitely worth the 12 hours of travel. I love the Easter pieces too, how cute! I also enjoy your posts of the mountains and nature scenery in Florida but this one is another place to love too.

Della said...

What a difference, and what a beautiful view! A change in scenery is good for the soul.

There was a touch of humidity in the air today! Summer is upon us!

Enjoy your visit, and your mil has a lovely place!
Hugs!

Beautiful! Enjoy your Easter.
Our plans have changed somewhat since my husband isn't feeling well tonight and his mom has the flu, we will be postponing our Easter lunch I was having. But that won't stop Grace from doing her Easter egg hunt!

Your photos of blossems and flowering shrubs and green grass bring back Easter memories for me. You will enjoy your time in Georgia with family for sure - Happy Easter!

You have a very lovely lawn! It looks so green and and healthy maybe because of Spring! The season that brings life is indeed here and we thank you for sharing these photos with us.
