I think she did a great job, and brought the Easter spirit into our house just in time!
These little vintage style chicks and bunnies have taken up a temporary home on the living room mantel.
This one with the blush in her cheeks and wearing
her Easter bonnet looks ready for the Easter Parade!
This dapper little guy looks like he's in charge of hiding eggs!
While the littlest chick just looks perplexed!
My daughters decorated the curly willow branches with fancy painted and embellished eggs. This is a German Easter tradition that my mother followed during her childhood, and kept up while I was growing up. It's not Easter around here until the egg tree is up!
We've been collecting and decorating hollowed out eggs for years.
Many of these are over 20 years old. Some were decorated by my girls when they were just toddlers. They're pretty fragile, and during the rest of the year they are stored in egg cartons, wrapped in tissue.
The paper mache' eggs were made in Germany. When I was young I would always get several of these eggs in my Easter basket, filled with delicious German chocolates. We have quite a few of them, scattered around the house. I love the whimsical, traditional illustrations on them! They remind me of my childhood, and the German books that were read to me when I was little.
This big bunny is carrying branches of pussy-willow, stopping by to wish you and yours a very Happy Easter! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with love and laughter!
I'll be on a short blog-break next week, enjoying some time with my family for Spring break! I look forward to visiting with you all when I get back. Wednesday Gratitude will resume the week of April 11. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Until next time,
