Easter

Our Easter holiday this year was low-key and lovely, spent with my in-laws.  We had good food, good conversation, good wine....yes, life is good.  :-)

I'm sharing pictures of my Easter decor and a few other things.  Hope you enjoy!

First up, bunnies.







This momma bunny and her baby were given to my youngest daughter for her first birthday.  They were left in the attic in a bin full of stuffed animals due to lack of display space in her bedroom.  I rescued them to use at Easter time.
Eggs, eggs, eggs.
I have so many plastic eggs.  This is a fun way to see many of them at once.  My youngest arranged these for the dining room table.


Two of these tiny terracotta pots sit on my kitchen windowsill, displaying blue eggs.

These quilled eggs were done by my husband's grandmother, who adored crafting.  I love setting these out in the spring as a beautiful reminder of her.


...and here are the miscellaneous photos...

Paper carrots, set on top of my doorknob collection.  I found an old Delacre cookie tin at an antiques store, filled it with natural excelsior and display it on my coffee table.

Limoges china inherited from my great aunt.  It had belonged to her first husband's aunt before that.  It's old!  Love this cheese/butter dome.

A vignette arranged on a shelf in my bathroom.  Yes, that's a soap box used as a decoration.  I think it's very pretty as well as useful.  It gives height to this little scene.


Can't recall the name of this daffodil, but it's a version of Tete a Tete, a miniature breed.

Most people get chocolate bunnies in their Easter baskets....

Thanks for your visit today!  Please leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by.

Peace and blessings to you,

Wonderful Easter/Spring photos you shared. I have some of those glass nests. Yours are so pretty. I think I have only one rabbit, though.

I loved seeing your wonderful Easter decorations! That kitty is just a tad too big for the basket,though. Lol!

Love your Easter decorations! I have some glass eggs an old friend of my mom's made me with some of her old jewelry. A few have some little flowers on them too. But, I keep forgeting to put them out at the right time. Gee, I just realized that they are like 50 years old and who knows about the jewelry. My question is - was there any goodies in the basket before your kitty hopped in? Henry would have all candy stripped in record time!

Oh wow Colleen, you take beautiful photos... Don't you want to join in the fun at Our Beautiful World? We have a new prompt each week. No challenges or prizes, just having fun together.
And lol, some people get the cat in the bag (that's a Dutch saying, don't know if it excists in any other language too, it means that you're deceived) and your getting the cat in the basket :) Hope he/she didn't crush the eggs...

hugs, Wendy
