Happy Spring and Happy Easter!!!

A little Easter vignette.

A hand made wire Easter egg tree decorated with wet felted eggs.

I found almost everything at the thrift store all on the same day.

I went there hoping to find a white ceramic bunny and low and behold, the very first thing I spotted was this bunny, not only was he cheap but he's perfect, not a single chip!
I found the little ceramic picket fence pot, the white container holding the grass in the background and the white pitcher. The egg was from a different trip to the thrift store a week before.

I twisted wire together to form a tree and then Mr. Wild spray painted it for me.

I needed tiny eggs and it dawned on me I could make my own by wet felting some colored roving

Add a little vintage chiffon fabric and the pink fabric backdrop for taking pictures and there's my centerpiece.

All of these pieces were sitting out and as I was looking at them, the perfect little vignette came into my head. Make a twisted wire tree and paint it, add some eggs, add a little soil and grass seed to the one pot, some flowers in the pitcher, It just all came together from that one trip!

For some reason my mom saved this old Fanny Farmer candy box. It's full of her old metal hair clips. I cherish this little box, I remember getting one like this...probably this box...at Easter when I was little.

All four sides have such neat graphics

A little spotted and stained here and there but I don't care, I'm just glad she saved it.

Happy Easter!

Thanks for stopping!

Hi Faye!!

I love your Easter decor!! And my absolute fave is the little candy box! What a treasure! Just makes me smile!! The little roving eggs are precious, too!! I thought about making some larger ones for the shop, but I'll probably just wait and make more acorns at the end of the summer!!

Hugs sweetie,
