~ A Bit of Spring Decorating ~

Gosh is it really Easter weekend already???...where has the time gone?...I've been so busy that I didn't decorate as extensively as I normally do but thought I'd better share what's there before it's time to put away the bunnies and the eggs! LOL

Blue Willow Eggs in the bowl and Blue Willow Taper Candles from my shoppe go nicely with the painted firkin and matching hog scraper candlestick I got several years ago from Jerrie at Kentucky Roots.
The artificial Sweet Marjoram is my all time favorite faux greenery.
I added a couple of my Primitive Potted Pansies to spring up the mantle.

Beautiful handmades from Stephanie of Old Colony Primitives.
Mrs. Rabbit doll from Jackie of TFC Folk Art from several years ago, Faux Forsythia from my shoppe, and a sweet prairie doll made by my friend Karen of Olde Cottage Primitives.
My Schneeman bunnies from a year or two ago.
Big bowl of pinkeeps made by many different folks.
Laying bunny on the mirror shelf was made a couple of years ago by Lori of Homespun Prims by Lori...hanging heart with birds was made by Barbara of Turkey Hollow Folk Art, sand timer was made by Don and Pat of Olde Bittersweet Farm (it looks so old!), standing bunny is from a few years ago made by Betty of Squarenails, and the artificial greenery is the Artificial Herbs Spray from my shoppe!Lastly, my favorite bowl that I decorate each's the Large Rustic Chopping Bowl...this year I placed a cute bunny that I got a year or two ago made by Maureen of Buckbrush Farm, along with one of my all time favorite pinkeeps that was made by Pam of Primitive Basketcase, a few of the Scalloped Pantry Cakes from my shoppe and of course my artificial Sweet Marjoram with some faux eggs thrown in for good measure.
And there you have it...I'm still working on our master bedroom redo...currently waiting on the long tailed pillow cases...I'll be back here soon with a question about upholstered chairs so don't go too far!...have a lovely Easter weekend!

So pretty. Of course here in New Zealand we are heading towards winter, so we don't do the spring display for Easter.....thank you for sharing your delightful home.
