A Simple Spring ~ Easter

Happy Spring, dear friends! Happy Easter, Happy Passover ~

This year I have tried to keep my spring and Easter decor low key and simple.

But I dearly love Eggs! And bunnies, and spring flowers.

New this year, wooden eggs from Target. I painted them with pastel chalk paint.

Mostly real blown out eggs, a long time collection. Bunny from folk artist Michelle Pooler.

Overblown yet beautiful parrot tulips.

Tiny branches found on walks after windy days. Seaglass bottles from my beach.

Faux nest, a long ago gift from my mom.

Tiny pugs!

Mr Bunny. My new piece of quilted batik gives a modern beachy hint to my traditional decor.

Chocolate molds.

The eggs again. I like them in the egg-like speckled old bowl. 

The real thing: Cadbury eggs in an old Mason jar.

Bright eggs in an old blue trencher or treenware bowl from Maine.

I made the rag ball eggs this year too. Hot glue gun and acrylic sealant, much more effective than last year's flops made with ModPodge.

Wishing you a happy weekend filled with all good things, and family and friends!
