Easter Decorating - Done!

The Easter decorating is done.
The milk glass cake dish was my mother's.
It's a real favorite.
The bottom half of the yellow ceramic
Easter egg in the bottom left picture is also special.
The top is missing in action... somehow packed away
separately... (who could have done that???).
My grandmother loved painting ceramics.
She painted this one in 1952.
I was 5. So there!

I loved the little decals she used and I think that
is where my love for Dick and Jane type
of drawings began.
Several months ago while in an antiques mall in
Denver, I found this child's plate with some of the same
decals. It made me wonder if someone's grandmother had
made this for their grandchild.
Had to have it!

This was fun. I stuck the bottle of carrots and
the "beaker" of beans  on top of my frig and then
hmmmm.... I ran and got some of my bunnies
and as they say... "the rest is history"!
Love this sort of bonus decorating...

Here is a postscript to my previous post.
Remember that sweet little rabbit
reading a book

under the cloche??

Before I even had my first cup of coffee this
morning and I heard the most horrendous crash.

Hubby: "When did you put that thing there", as he sat in his recliner with the morning paper.

Me: "WHAT HAPPENED"?? I ran (mind you... no coffee) to
survey the damage.

There in thousands of pieces was my favorite cloche that I had purchased at an antiques store up country.
(It wasn't cheap.)

Suddenly I remembered my Royal Doulton Bunnykins...
Miraculously he had survived. I have NO clue as to how
he managed it.

Now I ask you...
Who could stay mad at a sweet man like this for long?
I am getting over it... s-l-o-w-w-w-w-l-y.
(It is now 10 p.m.)


As on most Mondays you'll find me here at
Little Red House for Mosaic Monday
So much fun!

Oh...I am so sorry about your cloche, the old ones are hard to come by. But you do have a wonderful collection of bunnies. They are darling!

Love HOPPING around looking at all of your pretties! Dangit about the cloche but I agree, you can't stay mad at that sweet smiling man:) Hope you find another one AND happy that the bunny didn't get busted! Have a blessed day dear Karen, HUGS!


Oh how awful, your sweet hubby had such accident! I'm so sorry for your clotch, I know they're expensive, I have one big and crystal that I did pay a little more than I really wished for. Maybe he can replace it! I can imagine how gorgeous your Mexican hutch is. Your collection of bunnies is great and so glad the one under the clotch was saved! Thanks for your lovely visit. I wish I knew how to make mosaics, but I don't. Lots of hugs, arling.
