Easter Decorations

Last weekend I pulled out my Easter things and had a great time “bunnying up” my house. I love Easter decorations! Last year Easter was so early that I didn’t feel like I had enough time to enjoy my decorations before it was time to take them down.

Come on in and see a few of my things! The first stop is the living room.

My grandmother made this card for us in 1997 using her pressed flowers.

This is one of my favorite Easter things. My grandmother had lots and lots of eggs like this one. I found this in an antique shop and was tickled pink. Mr. SP made the stand for it.

This egg was always in my Easter basket as a child. My brother had a similar one for his basket. Mama varied the type of candy that she filled it with each year. I love the design.

This is my very favorite bunny. I hate to put him away when Easter is over.

The nest in this basket is real. A teacher friend gave it to me to use for my science class. I decided to decorate with it instead. (Shhhh… don’t tell!)

On to the dining room…
Granny made this tablecloth when she was a young girl. Isn’t it sweet?

Mama found this “chocolate” bunny for me. She puts hers in a big white basket. This year he is adorning my buffet with a few chicks for company.

Now we go to the kitchen. This is what’s on my kitchen table for now.

These things are on top of my pie safe. The plate, cup, and saucer were Granny’s when she was a little girl. She put a label on the back of the plate so that I would remember where she got it. My grandmother was raised by her aunt. A couple in Norfolk wanted to adopt Granny, but my aunt wouldn’t let them have her. This couple gave Granny these dishes.

The egg cup was Granny’s. I picked up this cute chick a year or more ago.

These dishes were my brother’s in the 1970’s. I had a matching set, except mine were a Goldilocks pattern. The cup that matches mine was avocado green and my brother’s cup was harvest gold. You’ve got to love the 70’s!

Now we are in the family room beside Mr. SP’s chair. This candy bowl makes an appearance every Easter. The lamb plate was my dad’s from the 1940’s. It is Blue Ridge Pottery.

These cute salt and pepper shakers are in my kitchen.

Believe it or not, there’s more scattered through the house that I could share. I hope that you enjoyed seeing my Easter things. They put a smile on my face every day!

  1. Love seeing all your Easter stuff! And the notes/things from your Granny are especially treasures! Where did you get the bunny s/p shakers? I have a tea towel that Patt gave me that match it, and would love to find some like that! Thanks Paula!

    Adorable! I love Easter decorations. I need to go get my stuff out. I keep seeing cute things in the store (I love Pier 1’s stuff) but I can’t remember what I already own! Isn’t that sad?

    You inspired me!

    Paula,

    I love all your Easter decorations! It must be so nice to have the things that were passed down to you. I just don’t. I love the bunnies that actually look like hares! They are so much cuter and yours is no exception! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great weekend! It’s in the 60’s here!!!

    Oh, Paula! You have inspired me to get moving on some Spring cleaning so I can get my (meager!) decorations out of the attic…I plan on picking up a few things here and there to build my stash. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Great job, and I love the bunny salt and pepper shakers. The inherited items are the best though!

    You have some really, really neat Easter decorations. I think it is so wonderful that you have so many keepsakes from your grandmother…and I just love that lamb plate that was your father’s! Paula, I don’t have the words to tell you how neat I think that tablecloth is from your grandmother. Now only is it cute as can be, it’s unique PLUS an heirloom! LOVE it!

    Thanks for showing us your things. I’ve been missing out!

  9. Hey, I need your email address. Re: a meet up with other gals. Leave me a comment!

  10. Hi Paula. Your decorations are wonderful! The plate and cup your Granny received from the family who wanted to adopt her! What a treasure that is. And the Blue Ridge lamb plate is so cute. Don’t you just love Blue Ridge china? I only have a few pieces. I need to add to my collection.
