I know that some of you have hardly had a chance to look at yesterday's post, but Good Friday is already tomorrow and I have a few more Easter posts in que I need to get going on!
How about a look at some of the Easter stuff before it all gets put away?
It seems like just a few years ago I hardly had any Easter stuff. Somehow (cough) I now have a metric ton of it, so I tried to pick things I hadn't shown before. Maybe.
These are new this year, a set of nesting rabbits. I might not have bought it, but when I picked it up it seemed like the bunnies just kept coming and coming. The last one is the size of a thimble!
A jar full of blown eggs. Some are the last remaining ones from when I lived in Florida, some were picked up by the dozen at a yard sale. It's incredibly hard to keep these things from year to year, they are so fragile.
A jar with a nesting robin.
Those tiny apothecary jars refilled with eggs from the wreath project. And a little bit of one of Jack's Easter preschool crafts on the kitchen window.
I have some old Easter die cuts that I really, really am crazy about. The colors are wonderful.
I always put different die cuts in the hallway frames for each holiday.
And now I REALLY need to paint that hallway because there are a million pinholes!
The wire tree that never, ever photographs well. We used to have a wonderful holiday store on main street where Dave would buy me little glass ornaments for the holidays. I put them on this tree, where they are up high and safe. Bunnies, ducks, fuzzy lambs, and a chick or two. The little ducks are my favorite.
An old honeycomb Easter bunny head complete with interesting reflections from the mirrors.
A peek inside the big Easter feather tree.
And the whole thing.
In years past I have been a lot more rigid about what I put on the small holiday trees - all wooden ornaments, all striped eggs, etc. But I liked the Valentine tree so much this year with a big mish mash of stuff that I just started putting everything that didn't have a home on the tree. The scherenschnitte (papercut) eggs, some honeycomb eggs I found this year, tiny wooden ornaments, plastic lambs that were old light covers, tiny chenille chicks, and some larger hallmark ornaments that Jack picked up at a yard sale.
I think I like it a lot better this way.
Ok, Jack and I have to take some eggs to church for the egg hunt, and he wants to play Pat the Postman, so I had better get on it.
I will try and take a second to go back and label the previous years Easter trees so you can click on the label at the bottom of the post to see them all.
And I will be back soon with this years visit to the Easter bunny!
