Finding rusty old junk is fun! Nevertheless, I have found that no matter how much "stuff" I find and collect, only God can fully satisfy my heart. Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Hippity-Hoppity Easter's On It's Way

Well if you've been following a while then  it's no secret that I love holiday decorating and I really get into to most of them. I am especially excited for Easter and spring and gardening, since we are having the winter that never seems to end this year. Every time we get a couple of teaser days, snow follows. Nevertheless I have all of my spring decorating finished in time to enjoy it for a few weeks before Easter. I have several vignettes to share so I'll be showing just one today and hopefully one of my next few posts will be my Easter mantel and our new fireplace before and after makeover.
I started out creating a display using my soon to be 39 year old Anna-Lee rabbit from my first Easter. I love this Farmhouse-cottage area of our dining room that evolved when I brought in an old chippy screeen door and placed it in front of the ledge where I keep a lot of my ironstone. I thought an outdoorsy-farm theme would be perfect here for Spring.

 We both turn  39 tomorrow and we're still smiling!

Anna Lee Rabbit carries an Easter basket full of sweet little vintage eggs, a  furry chick, some straw and soft, yellow downy feathers.

This is such a great old ironstone piece. A cabbage bowl is just perfect for Easter.

I love filling the bowl with vintage decoupaged eggs, little blue eggs and straw and feathers instead of cheap, plastic grass. Just creates such a genuine farmhouse look.

                         Such beautiful, vivid pictures on these eggs which remind me so much of childhood Easters.

I recently bought several vintage Easter postcards and this one with the baby chick was a great addition to the spring farm vignette. 

Bon Ami, good friend(s), hope you  all have a springy-week full of sunshine and flowers everywhere! I have several more posts of vintage Easter and spring coming up soon, so be sure to stop by. Thanks for visiting today!
