Easter Decor in Every Nook and Cranny



Minimalist is a popular style of decorating many people follow. The barer may be the better for some folks but that's not how it is around our house.

There are flourishes of Easter decor here, there, and everywhere.

This sweet little figurine looks perfect perched next to the bunny couple inside the egg. The little girl is holding a basket with a wee bunny inside. They have all been placed on top of a pink doily.




























Windowsills and bathroom counters get decorated as well as every corner in between.





















One's home is one's castle.  I enjoy seeing the smiles on the faces of children as well as adults who come to visit.













There are colorful bunnies, including a calico and two ballerinas:






















An angel bunny and a hard-working bunny whose job is to hold up the soap:























One very smart bunny has a message we can all learn from. Can you read it, on her mirror?



Best of all, almost every single decoration came from yard or estate sales or thrift stores at rock bottom prices. A quick toss into the washing machine and drier and the soft animals are ready to decorate!

Your easter decor is gorgeous! I am not going to decorate for Easter. I cannot imagine unpacking another box right now and then packing it back later! Hopefully I will be motivated by the July 4th to decorate for that holiday!

Donna said...

Oh, Susan, you put me to shame. I haven't got a single decoration out. Heck, I didn't even put out Christmas decorations this year (thanks to our little Baby!hahaha) Well, at least your home looks cheery and SPRING-like, even if it is in the THIRTIES again! Geesh, will it ever end? haha Have a wonderful weekend!... Donna

When I originally commented I appear to have clicked on
the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each
time a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.

Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?
Appreciate it!

Have a look at my web site: steakhouse

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless
I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links
or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we
could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be
interested feel free to send me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Great
blog by the way!

Feel free to surf to my web site ... business registration pty and trust
