Easter Time

Easter is one of my favorite holidays for so many reasons the most important one is my Savior was Risen from the grave!!! It also reminds me of having get togethers with my family eating all day and having huge Easter egg hunts with the kiddos ...which we still do today!!  I also love the candy even though I'm trying to stay away from it this year.  The past couple of days I've been digging out my Easter decor and trying to get it out before the holiday comes and goes.

I went a little green with my mantle decor.  I made the Spring letters with wooden cutouts from Hobby Lobby and added reindeer moss to them.  I used white urns from GW and made topiaries with bunny rabbits from Pier One.  I also used my GW champagne bucket filled with sticks and made eggs to look like the Pottery Barn ones.

I really like the way the eggs turned out they are those brown paper mache eggs I painted white, glued ribbon on and put Happy Easter on with sharpie.

That's a little bit of decor.  I'll show you some more soon I promise I'm tryin to get busy!!


  1. Hi Miss Okie - your mantel is so nice and springy - I like your champagne bucket/vase :). Please direct me to the wedding pictures of the items you made last year, I see you don't have a directory. While I'm here, I'm going to say Love! your previous ruffle pillow, runner, and super-duper love your Union Jack scrap pillow. What a great project to use those pretty pieces of fabric that are too small for other projects.

  2. Your spring mantle is very pretty. Love it all.

  3. Your mantel is so cute! The mossy letters that spell-out SPRING I *love*
