Easter Decor & Finds!

Hippity ~ Hoppity Easter's On Its Way...
I've been remiss in sharing Easter decor photos, so there are way too many here.
How sweet is this 40's pottery planter bunny as a centerpiece on my table?

Gorgeous tablecloth, beautiful springy colors with banner border and
nosegays. It would also be perfect for a bridal shower.

I decided my poor planter was lonely so some friends came to keep him company.
They even brought a bunch of newly blooming Forsythia along.

Most everything you see here is from blogger friends.

This shows the other side of the centerpiece. 

I've changed things around more than once. You get that, right? :)
 The mirrored back keeps me from getting a better photo from the front. 
The buffet is showing off birds & nests from my previous tablescape. 

I've had this vintage Made In Japan marked planter for a long time

Mr. Retro gave me this pair of Westmoreland milk glass swirl candlestick
 holders (that I've been coveting) for my birthday a couple weeks ago.
Aren't they fabulous?

We hit a few sales on Saturday.  Found this sweet vintage flower basket
(another Made In Japan),  vintage yellow chick, and these gorgeous eggs.

The seller told me they are Russian, from Ukraine and hand painted.
My friend Sally at Sally Annie Magundy blog recently did a post her Mother's postcards of
Pysanky eggs.  Do you think my finds can be the real deal? 

Probably just copies of the technique.  I'm going to ask Sally for her expertise,
since she has a real one.  Either way, they are gorgeous and I really love them!
I made this fun Easter nest for a friend.  Started with an aluminum tart pan and added vintage lace and buttons. The egg is hand painted from Portugal. 

I crafted lots of cards to send to family and friends. 

My favorites are the bunny shapes with the fuzzy tails. 

I'll be using the little dresses idea again. Cute!

I've misplaced the photos of my cloches and Easter tree.  Oh well,
there is time for another post later this week.

My snowball almond bush is blooming.  Spring makes me smile!
What made you smile this weekend?
 Happy almost Easter week!
