When Easter & Ostara Collide!

Like the bad witch that I am, I was out of town for Ostara this year. Although I did celebrate in my own way while on vacation, I didn’t do much at home. This year I’m using Easter to honor the holiday instead.

It isn’t March yet but I’m so ready for spring! I live near Philadelphia and the weather has been pretty brutal this winter, between the snowstorms and the freezing rain.

Ostara, or the March equinox, is on March 20th of this year. That’s only about a month away! I’m starting to decorate for Ostara now. It might be a little early, but seeing signs of spring in my home remind me that we’re in the home stretch!

My Vintage Valentine’s Day Mantle

I like to refresh my mantle every few months to keep it interesting. I just can’t stand to look at the same things all the time. I rotate my art as well as the tchotchkes. I started taking down my Kewpie mantle from Christmas in early January, and this Valentine’s Day decor evolved from it.

An eclectic theme of vintage toys, minerals, and plants emerged while I was arranging it. These are all things that I collect so this came together pretty naturally on its own.

Here’s how I pulled it together:

These super cute DIY unicorn ring dishes couldn’t be any easier to make, and the supplies are ridiculously cheap. Create a herd of unicorn ring dishes using a Valentine kit and tiny dishes, both found in Bullseye’s Playground (formerly the Dollar Spot) at Target.

Merry Kewpsmas!

This year I decided to do something a little different with my mantle for Christmas. I collect vintage toys, and I like to incorporate them into my holiday decorations. This year I was inspired when I came across someone’s old Kewpie collection at a local consignment store. I was just going to clean them up and sell them in my Etsy store, but I decided to dress them up for Christmas!

I usually dress up some of my toys for Christmas, but just with little Santa hats. This year, I went all out and gave every single one a costume or a prop. Here’s how I did it:
