Hoppy Easter Roundup

Hoppy Easter everyone! It seems like Easter took forever to get here this year.

I'm lucky enough to spend Easter with my extended family this year. And even more lucky that I have a family that I want to spend Easter with. I hope you are as lucky as well.

I thought I'd do an Easter recap as well as show you a few things I haven't shared yet. So here goes.

Let's start with the mantel. I did change it up a bit since I first shared it with you. I'm constantly tweaking. If you want to see the before, check it out here.

Can you spot the changes?

I added the moss bunny to the left. And some wheat grass in some buckets.

And I added some tiny clothes pins to my Easter tags.

I like the changes I made to the mantel.

Remember the sofa table behind my sofa? You can find my original post about it here.

This is one area I didn't change since I first posted.

I must have been happy with what I had already done.

And remember my thrifty Easter vignette? I posted about it here.

I'm still in love with this bunny!

Some more wheat grass.

And I just posted about my china hutch in my Easter parade post here.

I'm usually a bunny fanatic. But these chickies have stolen my heart. But don't tell the bunnies.

Look! They can live in harmony.

Then I shared my shelf in my We are still hopping down the bunny trail post here.

I tend to be frugal aka: cheap in my decorating. But cheap doesn't have to be ugly. It can be quite nice.

I told you all about my home grown Easter grass here. This was my first attempt at growing wheat grass. I'm totally hooked.

I took these photos this morning. Check back at my original post to see how much they have grown in the last week. Amazing! Too bad hair can't grow that fast. But then again, maybe I wouldn't want hair to grow that fast.

Yesterday I showed you the area on top of my TV cabinet. You can find it here. But remember that I forgot to take a photo of everything all together? Well I took this photo today, just for you. I'm nice like that.

I have Christmas lights on top of the cabinet. You can sort of see them in a few photos. They are actually Candylights. Christmas lights dipped in silicone. I won a couple of sets from some blog last year or the year before. They come on whenever the TV is on. I love them at night.

And now for a few areas I haven't shared yet.

This is the end table in my family room. I found the covered bunny jar at Salvation Army a couple of years ago. The peonies are fakies from Dollar Tree.

I placed the Dollar Store peonies in this ceramic basket that was another thrift store find. The handle of the basket is covered by the peonies.

I have these 3 cloches that sit on a huge wooden tray on top of my white trunk. I've had the tray for over a year now (thrift store find) and I've yet to paint it. I can't decide what color to paint it.

These bunnies came from Dollar Tree this year.

This bunny came from a thrift store. I've had it for a few years. The cabbage pedestal plate came from Ross a couple of years ago.

And I found this bunny box at Home Goods a few years back.

I did pretty good this year not spending money on Easter decor. But then, why would I need to when I have so much stuff.

Well I hope you have enjoyed this recap. If you stayed until the end, I have to commend you. You are a true blue trooper. May the Easter Bunny bring you lots of treats.

Even though my Easter decor has a lot of bunnies, I do know the real reason we celebrate Easter. And my Savior Jesus Christ will be foremost on my mind this Easter Sunday. He paid the ultimate sacrifice for us. For that I am eternally grateful.

Happy Easter! And I know that my Redeemer lives!

  5. Everything you did looks so pretty! I'm glad Easter was late this year so that there was more time to enjoy the decorations.

  6. Kim, you have such a sweet eye for precious things! Wishing I had found that fabulouss cabbage plate cake stand myself...yummy! If you get a chance, I'd love for you to stop by and share all of your bunnies at the Tuesday To Do party this week!
