Fluffed up…and Springified….

I managed to get the dining room table “dressed” in between work and baseball games and all of that stuff that keeps me in a twist most of the time….

I had bought the fabric to make a runner, however, I found this one at TJ Maxx for 9.99, loved it, bought it….actually I got two….one for the table and one for the buffet…


I did have to alter it as it was waaaaay to long for my table….and I added the

trim …

love me some beady fringe….



I  also found the rabbit at TJ…..



This buffet is the next thing that will be replaced in here….I am on the hunt…







Thank you for stopping by…..have a great week!

I am linking up today with Linda at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays…..please stop by the party!

  1. Lou Cinda,
    Looks great...hop over and show it off at NTT and enter to WIN Rhonda's beautiful pillow!


  2. All the changes look great! I love TJ Maxx they always have some of the cutest things! Have a great day!

  3. OOOOOhhh, I'm in love with your "Springiness" and you did an awesome job with that table and chairs. They turned out gorgeous!!!!

  4. Love your bunnies, Lou Cinda, and the little nest under glass and that little wreath! At least we are in the month when Spring arrives so I'm hopeful we are done with snow for the season.

  5. So pretty! This makes me want to "springify!" I need to go to TJ Maxx. They always have great stuff for spring. Love that little nest under the cloche!

  6. Hi Lou Cinda! Oh, Spring is certainly in your dining room. Love your table runner and the beaded trim is so cute! Love your centerpiece and that little rabbit looks so cute. Love your buffet and how you've decked it out too! Rabbits are gathering in your house! ;)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. Very pretty! Wish I was this crafty. I recently bought a sewing machine. Currently, I am terrified by it :)

  8. Very pretty runner {love the beads}. I, too, have problems with them being too long since my table only seats 4. I just fold it and press it with an iron {my alternative to learning to sew!!}. Love your bunnies and cloche!


  9. Your dining room is so pretty. I really love the way you painted the chairs and table! Linda

  10. Lou Cinda everything looks perfect for spring! I loves me a little blingy bling too! But I wish I could put my hands right into your picture and take that bunny under cloche home with me *winks* He/she? is sooooo adoeable!! Vanna

  11. Love the runner and the rabbit vignette on the table! You are ready for Spring for sure! I love your cloche on the stack of plates...looks good!~Hugs, Patti

  12. Girl, you are getting ready for Spring, so pretty! Thanks so much for coming by to see me & always leaving such uplifting comments. You are appreciated, my friend!

  13. Okay Lady, I love the tall bunny and the cloche display. And a good use of those plates! Will we ever have enough plates?!
    I swear it's an illness. Have fun w/ the table hunt!
    xo J.

  14. I like your Easter decor! I too enjoy TJ Maxx! Home Goods too in B'ham is also a great place to find goodies at great prices! Thanx for sharing. The Cranky Queen...visit me soon

  15. LouCinda, I love the bling you added to that runner. Your table and your buffet look so pretty. I love that china pattern stacked on your buffet. I also love the bunny you got at TJ. laurie

  16. Love the new runners!! I think those are April Cornell? I had that runner too from Home Goods but took it back since it did not match where I needed it to go. I love the beading you added!

  17. Oh...this looks very nice. I love the 'bling' addition to the runner; I am very fond of embellishments. And, that is such a cute little bunny ~ I am quite envious. Have a great day.

  18. Hello Lou Cinda! I wanted to stop by and say "hello" and "thank you" for visiting my blog. And you know what's really funny? The comment above mine is from my mom at La Vie Quotidienne! She must have arrived shortly before me! Anyway, I just love all your spring decorations, and the tablerunner is quite lovely! What a great idea to add the beautiful trim! :)

  19. Such lovely vignettes! Don't you love TJMaxx? I know! But I love your beading - sooo beautiful!

    Okay, it's time to break out Spring and bunnies! That is, if I can find everything after moving ;)

    Thanks so much for dropping by! Always glad to see you!

  20. Love it ALL!

    Are those THE chairs??? Did you finally find the ones of your dreams??? I saw something about chairs in the title of the next post, so I'm hurrying there to see!!!
