Spring Blue and Yellow

I gathered a few blue and yellow things
to see how they would give a Spring look to 
the dining room table.
 I just walked thru my house picking up 
things here and there.
 The table runner and a few of the pottery 
pieces were from my daughter Kim's house
 in Texas. Discards....because she was 
changing her color scheme. 
(See her house HERE.)
Three white china bunnies.
 My old silver three-tiered tea stand.
Lemon tree plates sometimes used in the 
family room or kitchen were found thrifting
years ago. They show up occasionally. 
 This Longaberger basket is from the
  guest room. The colors worked here
so I filled it with Easter grass.
It's topped with decoupaged eggs
I made last year using
blue and yellow cocktail napkins.
 A delicate bone china yellow bowl holds more
 eggs in blue and white.
 Tall yellow glads from the back hallway.
 I took all the leaves out of the table after 
our last family dinner on St. Patricks Day.
The big dish cupboard at the end of the room.
On top of the cupboard are: an antique
 leaded glass window, pussy willow in a 
brass umbrella stand, one of my mother's old 
coffee pots that she brought from Germany, 
a Longaberger basket, blue china bunny,
 and flowers in a hammered brass kettle.
 Next to that, on the floor are two
blue and white Chinese pots. 
The tall iron stand was a curb-side find. 
I just sprayed it black.
Something old, nothing new, all were 
gathered in yellow and blue.
