Easter Around The House...

Old - New
Handmade - Purchased
A few years ago I lost interest in decorating for holidays. I considered giving away and throwing away the decorations. I'm happy that I didn't. I now find that I'm enjoying these things and decorating has become a new hobby of sorts.
 An Easter basket waiting for treasure.
I made the fabric liner from scrap fabric in my stash. (Stash Attack)
 An adorable (handmade by my sister JoAnn many years ago) floppy ear bunny. She's ready for Easter wearing her bonnet and dress.
 Tin Rabbit, not vintage but several years old.
 One of my ceramic class projects made long, long, ago, Peter Cottontail.
Next to Peter is a not so old Easter basket holding a few more old Easter ceramic pieces made by my mother and other family members.
Newly created mini-clothes pin chicks. A little gift for a friend.
 An inexpensive egg dish with cute salt and pepper shakers holds a few old ceramic eggs made by family members and a few newly purchased plastic eggs.
On Easter day I'll put dyed hard boiled eggs on the dish.
I made this fuzzy duck in a craft class many years ago that I attended with my sister, Judy, who is deceased. It's feathers are a bit ruffled but I don't mind. And I have fun memories connected to this fuzzy duck.
 I think this might be the actual Easter Bunny with that large sack of eggs.
This might be Mrs. Easter Bunny. She carries a very modest basket of eggs.
 I purchased this trio of bunnies a few years ago. 
love the colors and the way they are dressed. 
My vintage chicks are a treasure to me. They came from my grandparents toy and novelty store at least fifty years ago.
The dish of decorated eggs and the foil bunny are new.
I purchased white-painted wood eggs at a consignment store. As you can see I repainted and added a bit of bling to the eggs.
The bunny is new it's foil covered ceramic made to look like a vintage chocolate rabbit. I hope no one is tempted to eat his ears.

I'm going to save a few more decorations including how I trimmed my seasonal tree for next time.
Linking with Pink Saturday.
Looking forward to seeing all of your Spring and Easter decorations.

  4. So many pretties, Linda. I'm glad you kept them. Love the vintage chicks from your grandparents' store, and little miss floppy ears in her pretty blue bonnet and dress. xo
