Hello, hello Friends, and a very Happy Good Friday to you!
So, Easter will be here in just a few short days, and you all know me by now…….. you know I rarely let a holiday go by without decorating for the event.
I didn’t go absolutely all-out for Easter this year, but I did bring out a few of my favorite things, as well as lots of my own handcrafted projects from the past several years that make me smile.
I thought maybe you all would like to see…. and I know my sweet mom waits for my holiday posts, since she can’t be here in person. So here’s a peek into my Easter house, along with best wishes for a blessed and joyous Easter holiday, from me to you!
This year, like last year, I’ve gone for a somewhat natural look to my Easter decor, which you saw on my mantel in the previous photos, and here in my sunroom, too.
Up on my butler’s chest I have some cast iron bunnies, and some ceramic ones, as well. The eggs are real, hand-blown from my friend, Paige’s, own chickens.
The nest is one of my craft projects from last year, made from string and lots and lots of glue.
Of course in my dining room is my favorite white ironstone pieces, mixed in with transferware.
I do love me some transferware, I must admit, and have it in many different colors, and even some multi-colored polychrome pieces like this collection.
The glass bunny is a vintage candy holder. The small bird cards you see were my dad’s when he was little.
Another vintage glass bunny. And that chick… ohmy, he makes me smile. I just made him last week, from paper mache.
I call the scene on these plates “my happy place”. Sigh
The glass hen on the right is another vintage candy holder. The smaller one on the left is a vintage egg cup. And of course my old rusty scale. Love that thing.
I went much more whimsical on my front entryway this year.
Here I’ve gathered many of my own handcrafted projects, like this big bunny I made this year.
Paired, of course, with some of my favorite vintage collectibles.
This bunny is old, old paper mache. Perhaps he has spurred my current desire to paper mache everything in sight!
Underneath my table is a basket filled with a mish-mash of my own projects.
A big paper mache bunny, and several of my silly rag dolls.
I can’t help but smile over these crazy things.
And one last photo. Another basket of my handmade bunnies.
I hope you enjoyed the tour! And thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Easter to all of you!
