Some fun finds for Easter...and some stuff I made years ago...

Hi Everyone...

I am getting all of my Easter stuff all ready and my vignette is all set on our table...The Easter eggs to the left are ones I created our first year Married...years ago...I blew out the eggs, washed them and then used acrylics to paint them...the carrot treat holders are new...I bought 4 of them for a dollar...and thought they would be nice at each place setting....the rock rabbit is an Easter gift I made Brad in 1997...he is out all year long...but has a special place for Easter....and the egg holders are from last year and the cute bunny bowl is a cute find this year....




These bags are for Cole's friends that pop by....so sweet I could hardly wait to fill them and put them in a big basket....cuteeeeeee



and this is my table vignette...my blooming orchid sits on a wrought iron bird bath.....it makes me long for Spring even more....today I saw the Robin ...and when the Robin is back....I know warmer weather will be here shortly....
now I head to our formal Dining Room to make it more Spring like....oh how fun it is to Spring Clean and decorate...
Cheers,
Diana

The egg art seems to be a lost art anymore. Most of my family is Eastern European and it seems my uncle, who passed away unfortunately, was the last to keep it alive. I'm not sure if I have the patience to do it though. Anyhow, excellent work here Diana!

Diana Evans said...

thanks Forever Young and Steve...

We actually started a family tradition years ago to get together and paint eggs as a family.....

I will post more on that this week...

Cheers,
Diana
