Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
He is risen! He is risen indeed! Easter is such a wonderful time to celebrating remembering that we are saved through Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins and arose on the third day! I thank God so much for His precious sacrifice. Here are a few pictures of our Easter decorations this year. I stenciled this sign and placed it out on the front porch along with some sweet little chicks.
Little bunnies out on the front porch.
Cute little Peter Cottontail is there to greet our visitors.
I love these egg wreaths.
I just made this wreath yesterday. I glued on several different fun vintage spring and Easter items onto a floral wreath. I love how it turned out.
I simply glued a ribbon to the back of this cute old cardboard cut-out.
I decorated the top of my pie safe with more vintage Easter eye candy.
The wooden Easter Express wagon was a real find. I purchased it at a garage sale and the gentleman said it was his as a boy about 70 years ago!
I have two of these sweet little ceramic chicks pulling an Easter cart. The first one I purchased from a home candle party back in the 80's and was my first Easter decoration. I later found a twin at a thrift store.
I love this vintage wind-up tin chicky.
I put more fun vintage Easter chicks in the window.
They are so cheerful!
I like this shot because you can see our tulips in bloom out in the garden.
I put some fake chocolate bunnies on my black hutch.
In the family room I made a little vignette on a silver tray.
I love this old handcrafted treasure with Jesus inside. It's made from a real egg! I am so happy it has survived and now I get to display it.
I am having fun changing out the box display on our farm table. For Easter I filled it with two ceramic bunnies, hydrangeas and several vintage German eggs.
I love these bunnies! I got them at a garage sale for $10.00 for the set.
They are just fantastic and remind me a bit of Beatrix Potter's bunnies.
I appreciate the work that goes into handcrafted items. This egg is so detailed and so pretty.
I have been collecting these made in Germany cardboard eggs for many years. I usually find one a year. The illustrations are so amazing.
Here's the backside of the centerpiece.
I am so happy to have a neat way to display these vintage eggs.
The green wire basket filled with eggs in the center was from my mother-in-law's collection. I love it.
Mrs. Bunny is so busy and so sweet!
I placed a few things in the powder room.
Love the darling vintage postcard.
I filled this antique basket with all kinds of vintage treasures. I especially love the sugar egg, it's amazing that it has survived all these years.
We lit up the old rugged cross that's out in front of our house to celebrate our Risen King!
Wishing you a very special Easter.
