I am having my first 100 followers giveaway!
click Here for details!

I took all my Easter decorations down over the weekend..
and my house is so bare!
When all the holidays are over..
it is so hard to decorate.

(click photos to enlarge)

So I thought I would share my halltree...

My hall tree is in the foyer..
right by the front door.

I love to have flowers on the halltree,
todays flowers are...
hyacinths from the garden

I keep this little silver tray there too,
it holds victorian calling cards,
and a sweet glass bird.

This ladies parasol is so delicate and tattered,
It's a treasure gift!

I love hats,
and this peachy straw hat loaded,
 with millinery flowers..
is my favorite!

Here are a couple garden ready straw hats,
perfect for the hot days to come.
Yes I live in Seattle and our temps are not that hot...
but... I am a heat baby :-)

Today I am joing Marty at A Stroll Thru Life

Please come and join in the fun!

Thanks for stopping by,

What a gorgeous piece! Everything is placed so beautifully, which makes for a lovely entrance. I especially love the parasol and hats. Thanks for sharing!


Love your foyer hall tree. It is like stepping into a charming victorian home. The hats, the calling cards, the sweet little bird and the flowers.. all of it placed so just right! I don't have a foyer.. but if I did , I would want it to look like yours.

I like your collection of calling cards. And the hall tree is also verry nice. Have a good day.

I love the hall tree and how you have it decorated. the hat on the top is especially pretty and the parasol is charming also.
I love hats too and one of the few things I bought in Charleston is what I am calling my southern belle hat for my hall tree.
The tulip fields you shared are so pretty and a nice giveaway too.
I went to Washington with my sister & Mom 15 years ago(she lives in Vancouver)we went to a lovely dutch village.My Mom is Dutch so it was a treat.
