Easter Decorating

Pastels...light...airy...breezy... Oh how I LOVE the springtime!  Good-bye heavy drapes, thick fluffy blankets, and HELLO sheers, crisp, cool, sheets, light covers!

   Everything is anew...tulips, daffodils, bunnies, chicks...oh, I could go on and on!  I LOVE bunnies, chicks, and the Easter Bunny!!! 

 However, to me, Easter isn't just about bunnies and chicks!  To me, it's about a savior who lived to die...but arose again!  

HE LIVES, and HE did it all for ME and for YOU!!!  Thank you, Jesus!

I bought this sweet Easter pillow from Cheryl Dack { former Rosey Posey Confections} a few years ago.

And this sweet girly came from Saturday Finds a few years ago.

Last weekend, I was in a crafty mood, and came up with this.  

The layers are created by clear dishes and colored grass.  
Each layer is embellished with eggs, bunnies, and chicks...OH MY!  lol  
It is the focal point of my long dining table.  

It doesn't matter where my guests sit.  They can enjoy this layered Easter creation at any angle! 

So then, I decided to use my small apothecary jars to create some small versions. 
These tiny little chicks are too stinkin' CuTe!

Cute little white bunny!

Here are some random shots of bunnies...
This was my first Jim Shore item.  I couldn't resist this Mama bunny pushing her egg in the stroller...
BUT...

LOOK WHAT'S INSIDE THE EGG!
*insert BIG smiles here*

White bunny finds a good home on my tea cart.


Even spring treats and desserts are so PRETTY!!!  :)

Now, I'll leave you with the lyrics to one of my favorite songs.

I’m forgiven because You were forsaken,
I’m accepted, You were condemned.
I am alive and well, Your spirit is within me,
Because You died and rose again.



Amazing love,
How can it be
That You, my King, should die for me?
Amazing love,
I know it’s true.
It’s my joy to honor You,
In all I do, I honor You.




Happy Good Friday!
Happy Pink Saturday!
Happy Easter!
