Ready For Easter?


I've been ready for 6 weeks now lol... Guess it was fun to decorate in advance.

Sweet bunny pillow, cat pillow I made for Mom many years ago, and our original and well-loved copy of the children's book The Velveteen Rabbit.







A few bunny things I bought for Mom (new) about 10 years ago.


Sorry, they are on high shelves which makes for bad photos... But they are displayed...



One of the many cloth doll rag rabbits Mom made. Hand sewn, not by machine, either. Real handmade.







Ugh, another bad angle of the print panel rooster, chicken and baby chicks in a vintage basket. Sorry, sorry, wasn't going to get up on a chair for a better shot lol...






The Easter bunny came early!

My bunny luvs See's candy lol...

Hard to wait until Easter morning to sample all the goodies!


Well, more fluff than content, I hope all of you are excited about Easter. I hope those of you who have wee one's will take photos of kids having fun on Easter egg hunts so the rest of us can enjoy them!

Happy Wednesday! Are YOU ready for Easter?!

  7. Do you really like seeing photos of children on Easter egg hunts and so on?

    Sometimes I think putting photos on my blog about my children is boring for people ... you know, mothers bragging about how cute their children are.

    Thank you for reminding me about the velveteen rabbit. I'll read that story to mine over the next few days ... that is, if I can manage not to get teary!

  8. Have always cherished The Velveteen Rabbit. You do look ready indeed. We have no cute little ones in house, just big kids and doggies... hmmmm, maybe they need a visit from the Easter bone-y.

  9. Hola, malu2! ¡Hola y bienvenidos a mi blog!

    MMMC, I think people should blog about what pleases them most of all. if folks want to use their blog primarily to post photos of their children, I think there will be others who will share the same interests.

    You know, have not read that book in a long time either. it's time!!!

  12. I wouldn't say I was ready but we've got some chocolate eggs stashed away that I've managed to prevent Dave from eating. That's probably as good as it's going to get.

    That Velveteen Rabbit book has made me think a lot about a book I used to read to my brother when we were kids. Is that the one where there is a picture of a burrow filled with coloured eggs? I can't remember much about the story except for that one illustration.

  13. I do love your mums dolls she made they really are beautiful. I am not religious so i don't celebrate Easter the same way others do. I do Easter eggs and for the boys and hide them and do make a cake and decorate it with eggs. I do love to see how others decorate their homes its really sweet. Have a lovely weekend, dee x

  14. I'm so crap, I swear, a present just turned up in the mail from VB's cousin for her and I didn't send him anything :(. My mother has to nag me about everything, I never get it together without her!

  15. I am SO excited about Easter! I'm going camping with family. It will be wonderful spending Easter morning in a cabin by the river with the ones I love. ♥

    Your decorations look festive and lovely. Have a wonderful holiday!

    Normally, I'm all about Easter---in fact, my favorite day of the year is the day after Valentines when the Cadbury Creme Eggs are in the stores. This year I've been good a boy and I've only had 4 creme eggs instead of the 4+ boxes I usually have by now. Time got away from me the past couple weeks and I will be scrambling (pun maybe intended) to get some easter goodies for my daughters last minute. Thankfully, I got them Easter dresses over a month ago---I just have to remember where I stashed them! We'll be hand-painting the eggs this year since my 3 year old insisted we use very small brushes. I'm excited for that!

    I hope you have a great Easter! I'm looking forward to some time off work and Sunday morning Champagne as the kiddies are scouring the yard for eggs.

  17. I enjoyed your bunnies and I am ready for Ham and home made potatoe salad and white coconut cake and hot bread.

    I sure miss Easter with my Mom's good cooking

  18. Oh I miss my Moms home made potato salad too!


    But I love to hear everyone's thoughts and plans for Easter!

    I used to love those Cadbury creme eggs, but since I've become a shrivelled up old woman, my taste buds stopped enjoying a lot of the store bought candy I used to love. Dunno why? Just old age I guess lol...

  21. Oh, MAN!! Are you kidding me with all the See's Candies??? You're making me crazy here! No - I'm not ready for Easter, and I don't think I ever will be unless or until I get me some of that See's.
    (Stomps off, grumpily, like a petulant child.)

  22. Come on over!

    Last time I bought a bunch of Halloween candy from See's I finally had to throw some out when I hadn't eaten it by Valentine's Day *yoinks!*

    ReplyDelete
  23. I can't even imagine having any leftover, uneaten See's candy! That wouldn't happen at our house! But then, I am a total chocoholic, and See's is my very favorite.
    Have a wonderful Easter - and I wish I COULD come over and "help" you eat some of that!
