Easter is not that far away, are you ready?

I love Easter. It is the first party of Spring. I think we are all ready after a long, cold, hard, winter. There is nothing more fun than Bunnies, chicks and bright colored eggs and Spring Flowers.

It is one time of the year when the child of you can come out, one does not have to be so serious about the decorations. I just adore little fun bunnies, chicks and other  fun things  that we all associate with the Easter Holiday.

I know none of this has to do with the true meaning of the Easter Holiday, but sometimes we just have to let the little kid come out. What better way to do this, than with fun Easter decorations. they need not be expensive. I have no problem shopping for these fun things at second hand, antique and thrift shops. makes it even more special.

If one does not spend a bundle on the decorations, makes it easier to add      new ones or replace them all, year after year. One of my favorite things to do is, have an Easter brunch and send the cute  little decorations home with my guest. Another favorite is to buy cheap, real candy, Bunnies, at the Dollar Store, use them for decorations and then send them home with my guest for a door prize treats. You'll be a real hero and loved and adored.

I made this fun hanging lamp for the shop window. I used and old lamp shade, some rose chintz and some vintage linen napkins. A glue gun made the project go fast and was very easy to do.

I wanted the store window to be Spring, not just Easter, so this is what I came up with.

This is my favorite Bunny. Hand made of burlap and velvet. Ain't he just the cutest.

Not to be out done by the burlap Bunny, these two are made from  recycled blue jeans.


Last week while I was at work at the antique mall, during a snow storm, I thought about Easter, so I got busy and did the window and a couple of other Easter displays. Looking around the mall I found neat and fun items in several booths. I think the results are cute and whimsy.
