Resisting Temptation


IMG_6040I should know better than to go into Pier One close to a holiday because there are always temptations for the table and I’ve sworn off buying anything more.

IMG_6047I managed to keep that promise this time, but I couldn’t resist looking.  How cute are the bunnies, and the bunches of carrots, well, I’m hoping they are on sale after Easter!

IMG_6038No matter how cute, I have to resist dishes these days because every possible shelf is full!  It was fun to imagine though how I would put these together for a fun tablescape.

IMG_6049The last thing to catch my eye was a pillow that made me think of all of you who decorate for every season and whose homes it would fit so nicely.

IMG_6002Feeling pretty good about resisting temptation, I stopped by Fresh Market to do some grocery shopping and what was the first thing I saw?  Yep, more goodies!  I’m not sure I’d want all that grass on a plate, but the presentation was festive.

IMG_6004What I really liked were these precious napkin rings.  Hopefully, grocery shoppers don’t pay too much attention to such things because if they are left and on sale after Easter, you can bet they will be mine!

i so appreciate your visit and especially the comments you leave behind

  1. love the napkins – and yes I have banned myself from shopping

  2. No more seasonal things for me, I have too much! Those are cute napkin rings though! 🙂

    1. I thought of you yesterday when for the first time in ages we didn’t have corned beef! Visiting family opted for Mexican food.

  3. Pier 1 is always such a temptation. I have a friend who buys every seasonal decoration they can come up with. 😀

      1. An unbelievable collection! 🙂

  4. Definitely go back after Easter and stock up on bunnies – they are a year round decoration as far as I’m concerned 😉

    1. You make a good point. If I can use pumpkins through Christmas, then bunnies are a no brainer.

  5. Those napkin rings are adorable and I love those linens as well. Sad we do not have a Fresh Market here in San Diego.

    1. I was surprised to see such cute things there.

  6. Since I don’t have seasonal dinners at my house any more I have definitely quit buying dishes etc just for a certain holiday. I miss that because it was always so fun to decorate a fancy table
    All those dishes have been sold in one of my many yard sales

    1. I’m kinda the same way as the only family dinner we still host is Thanksgiving. That helps me resist the temptations of other seasons.

  7. ps
    love those little white bunny plates

  8. Adorable Easter decorations…I am faced with resisting temptation every time I go to work at Stein Mart, so many cute things there,
    too!

  9. Very cute. I feel the same way you do. I am running out of room but it is so tempting to buy all the cute things.

    1. I’m trying to be satisfied just looking!

  10. Oh Linda, I hope those cute napkins and napkin rings are still available once the holiday is over. They are so cute and I know you could put a gorgeous table together with them. Love the napkins, too…so summery.
    Enjoy the weekend.

  11. I need to resist shopping for holiday goodies, but so far I haven’t been able to. I am currently admiring my Easter Village, complete with homes, gardens, a school, a church, mom and dad bunnies, little bunnies, etc., etc. is there a 12 step program?

    1. I think one just needs to stay home to avoid the temptations.

    2. When you find the program, I will join you!

  12. I’m trying to resist buying anything more for the holidays or the tabletop, but I admit that I broke down early in the season when Pier I had 20% off. A set of bunny plates came home with me. I had missed them last year, so when I saw that they had them again this year I decided to get them. Not expensive as they were sold in sets of four. I’m using them for dessert for Easter. The whimsey just makes me smile!

  13. Linda, I host all the holidays at our home, but I don’t need anything else, I have more than enough decor for each holiday! But, I always find a little something to add! Addicted…I guess!

  14. Oh your will power is strong! Those beautiful plates with the picture of the bunny on them just might have made me crack under the pressure!!

    1. What helps me resist Easter stuff is that I don’t do anything that requires new dishes!😏

  15. My sister has an irresistible collection of bunny rabbits that are strategically placed throughout her house all year round. At Easter, they are joined by another group of bunnies saved for the occasion. I’m in love with them all . . . best of all, when I see a bunny rabbit of any kind, I think of my creative sister.

  16. I love those little bunnies! I would have had a hard time not bringing them home with me. Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday. Have a great week.

  17. Those dishes are hard to resist! I found myself looking at the clock and counting the hours until Pier 1 opened. lol
