Things have been pretty busy around here for the last 3 months. I have obviously lost all track of time… John and I were talking about how busy our April is shaping up. First we start with Easter and your brother and sister-in law coming to town next weekend and then…WAIT, what? It’s not in two weeks but next week?
After I blew out the light from yanking the chain too hard, I fumbled in frustration in the creepy dark attic for the Easter box of decorations and hauled it down and got to work.
I’ve had this hand painted ceramic bunny for as long as I can remember…my Mom dated the egg with 1965. The ceramic eggs were made by Texas ceramist Jenna Hawkins. Below, my wonderful iron French waiter serves up a platter of jelly beans.
Here’s the secret not this look…I placed a smaller clear vase upside down in the largest one filled the vase up with malted milk eggs…they were only going to fit if I pushed the smaller vase close to the side of the big one. I sat another smaller clear vase on top of the upside down one and put the tulips in, put a few more malted milk eggs in and hot glued the Peeps around the rim.
I love using cloches and my petite Herend bunny and Limoges egg fit perfectly in this small one.
I painted these paper mache eggs last year and speckled the smaller ones.
Sam’s had these gorgeous hydrangeas this week.
Glass eggs in bowl with split peas…
