A glimpse of the Easter Decor....

I am sure JJ can't wait for Easter to be over! The house isn't bursting with Easter decor, but there is some in all the common areas...is that a bad thing?!?!?

I have to admit that since moving into our home I have thoroughly enjoyed borrowing and buying decor for every season and holiday! But the way I see it is...these pieces are investments..you only have to buy them once and they last for several years. I also will only buy things if they are on sale or very reasonably priced..I do have a limit set on things. I mean I am talking I have spent as little as 1 dollar to as much as 15 bucks...nothing outrageous.

So here are a few pics of the decor....

a birdcage and a few glass birds sitting inside..this will stay until Spring is over.

apothecary jars on the dining room table filled with grass, eggs, and a chick.

I will have to say that finding these apothecary jars for under 15 bucks was quite the challenge, but i was patient and found all 3 at various Home Goods and Marshalls. I told you I was bargain shopping....

I am happy to say that I am very very very content with the inside of the house..I am sure JJ is grinning! But honestly it is so easy to get wrapped up in "we need this, and this and this and this..." But as long as you are bargain shopper minded you can find great deals out there!


The last thing I want to do with this blog is to post pictures of new items and for it to come across as bragging...that is not the point and I hope you fellow bloggers realize this. I simply post the pics to show the few readers I have the changes that are happening at the Lenz casa...so I do hope that is how it is perceived in blogland. Enough on that soapbox.


A few new recipes that we tried over the weekend coming up in tomorrow's post!


  1. You will have to let me know if you ever come across more apothecary jars...I've been dying for some but definitely not willing to spend Crate and Barrel prices!

  2. Love what you've done with the apothecary jars!

  3. I love you and your cute holiday decor! Love the Easter stuff BUT you didn't post the cute chick in the kitchen, he is my FAV, I went to Home Goods looking for him, no luck :(

  4. You are SO thrifty! I need to have more patience like you! Sometimes, I find something and think "I won't be able to find it anywhere else, so I must buy it here." You inspire me!!

  5. BTW, this does not come off as bragging!
