EASTER DECORATIONS? EGGACTLY!

Do you love Easter as much as I do?
While I honor and celebrate the 
REAL REASON
for Easter I also have a bit of 
FUN getting ready for the day.

Here are a few small bits and pieces 
of the MANY things I have.
Too many?
Nah!  Okay- maybe!

This little chick wagon has been mine
for about 40 years.
Isn't it dear?
It's from the 50's when I was a child.
Here you can see a bit of the 
EASTER EGG TREE
behind it.
Cue the shamrocks!
This belonged to my mother.
She was born in 1912.
In 1924 the house they lived in 
burned to the ground 
just a few days before Easter.
One of the neighbors gave this 
to my mother for Easter.
It had a small plastic comb inside
 that I still have
and a steel "puzzle".
I don't know if there was any candy in it.
This is a "hat" that stores eggs 
from year to year.
It came with candy in it originally
and belonged to Gramma Hazel.
I have some wax egg candles from the 40's
that were also in the candy box-
along with the little "people".
And then, of course, I have the twins
and the other twins.....
I can hardly tell them apart.
Why my name is SO BIG there is a mystery to me.
Deal with it~

And- I don't want to forget
the sweet towels my daughter
gave me at Christmas time.
These are large towels
folded small so you can see the design.
They are most appropriate for Easter.
My Mindy got them from 
Tina @ What We Keep.
Tina does a marvelous job and I
have had the pleasure of getting a 
couple of things from her.

So-that's bits and pieces of Easter here.
Now all I have to do is get
My Hero to put on his
BUNNY COSTUME
to hide EASTER EGGS.
That is one scary looking bunny if you ask me!
Looks like he is saying:
Hey little girl-want some candy?
Hey-if someone is crazy enough to
do something weird while I have a camera
out I claim the right to use the photos on my blog.

As you can see this was taken a while ago
before he was on the 
Cancer Diet.
He is now skinny---
and that's all I'm gonna say 'bout that!

Hope YOU
Have a Hippity Hoppity Day!

Good morning, Diana!
I am in love with your little bunny wagon. You have some wonderful treasures. Especially that big bunny at the end. ;)
I'm glad you are enjoying your bunny towels. I love your Mindy, such a sweet and funny lady- just like her mom.

You have been saving some very special family treasures. Your mother's gift at such a sad time was a thoughtful gesture on someone's part. I am sure that she treasured it as evidenced by its still being with you.

Connie said...

Your hubby is a real trooper to model those bunny ears :) Especially knowing you had a camera out.

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

That chick wagon is darling!!! You sure have some special Easter pieces. I love that you've kept them through the years. It's always fun to decorate for Easter. :)

Art and Sand said...

I have never done much Easter decor, but your fun things make me think I need more!

Red Rose Alley said...

Diana, I loved seeing all your Easter goodies, and I love the fact that some are from many years ago. The chick wagon is cute. And I really like the tin that belonged to your mother. It's from 1924, what a treasure. That's tragic about what happened to her house. The twin bunnies were my favorite. Your bunnies on the end remind me of ones I've seen at Michaels. They look like chocolate bunnies.

I hope you have a very nice Easter, Diana.

love, ~Sheri

Jill said...

Oh Diana I love this post and all the Easter goodies and the stories that go with them. Such treasures to put out from year to year. My Kathleen decorated this year for me since I had the surgery and she did great. Have a wonderful week!

Blessings,
Jill

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Our Hopeful Home said...

Okay, love the collectible, sentimental stuff! But those twins~ I have them,too! The ones holding each other. It's hard to tell from the picture but is there a little bowl between them? Mine has a bowl you can put eggs or candy in. Yours look a bit more friendly than mine. My family always says they look kind of creepy - ha! (I'd have to agree but don't tell them!) Got mine when we lived in Kansas City over 10 years ago. Happy Easter! xo Kathleen | Our Hopeful Home

Eggs-traordinary! Here is my own Easter eggs memory video with Mom and our care partner angel Caroline in which I sport similar headgear to your hero and I'm finding hard to decide which of the two of us is the cuter:
