Here comes Peter Cottontail....

Today I am sharing a bit of Easter ( Spring ) decor.
You know about my little tree ,
you've seen it before , here and here and a few other places...
I quite love it .
You've seen my cloche collection before too.
I use them quite a bit also :)

My Mom's friend made these ceramic eggs every year for my kids.
When they left home I gave them all of them except one.
Last year , I had two made for Addie , Sarah and Ryan.
I had two made for each of them , so they would have them at their homes too.
Ryan still wanted to know why Emily had so many more than he did.
She said it was because he had only been in the family a couple of years and she had been in it her whole life !
 LOL! Love that girl ~

I got these cute little egg cups at a thrift store a couple weeks ago.
Cute huh?
You know I have a thing for birdies.
Speaking of which ,

See those cute little guys under glass (cloche )?
$1.25 - LOVE them !
Obvisiously , I bought them ....
The picture was  purchased several years ago. ( junk store , of course )
It makes me think of spring.
It had a horrible, wooden, scuffed up frame.
I'm embarassed to say , I JUST painted it.
What took me so long ?

Love it white.
Much better....

But my most prized possesion ( for Spring/ Easter ),

This ceramic bunny belonged to the hubs Grandma.
It was made by her sister, his Great - Aunt.
It sat on their TV year round.
Somehow, I was lucky enough to get it.
It is very special to me and I love having him on display .

I've got a little more for Spring/ Easter,
but it's outside.
And it's been yucky out there,
so I will wait to share it with you till it is more pleasant out there.
Hopefully that will be before April...
