Happy Easter

 Easter will be here the day after tomorrow! Have you planned your dinner menu if you are cooking? I haven't, but there is always Saturday! We are having ham, since I already bought one and a salad, as my sister is bringing that. I will decide on the rest later! 

Since Easter is almost here I thought I would post some more 
Easter decor before it is too late. 
Now that I am back to work full time, I leave the house by 6:30am and I am lucky if I am home by 5:30pm, so there is not as much crafting and blogging time as I would like! 

I did get my Easter tree up, but it is a little different this year. I did not use my "egg lights". Since I switched to LED lights, the egg lite covers do not fit as well over my light bulbs and I think when I pulled the eggs off last Easter, it broke the light set and I had to by a new set 
this last year at Christmas. 

Below are two ornaments I made. My little nest basket made from a Jello tin. 
And a little hen egg made with some vintage clip art.  

More vintage clip art made into an ornament.

My sister made me almost a dozen glittered eggs last Easter for my tree. 

My next bit of Easter decor is my Bunny Village. I worked at Mervyn's many years and in the early '90's they sold these bunny figures below. I bought quite a few the short time they sold them from about 1991 to 1994? 

My bunnies needed a home, so I made them one from a hollow log. 

And you know how bunnies multiply, soon they out grew the log and the next year I added a gazebo, and the year after that a pond, since Mervyn's sold a set of fishing bunnies and a pair of bunnies in a boat. So I had to add some kind of water source!

There are mama bunnies, papa bunnies, baby bunnies, little boy and girl bunnies and 
young bunnies in love. 

 Grandma and Grandpa bunny have rockers and easy chairs to relax in under the gazebo, while they are watching the basket of baby bunnies. But both have decided to take a little nap! I hope the baby bunnies don't get into any mischief! 

All those bunnies need something to eat, so I planted a vegetable garden for them to harvest. Carrots, cabbages, beets and squash are on the menu! 

There are also beautiful flowers all around for the bunnies to enjoy.

And inside there are some canned goods in the cupboard to help feed the family. 

I hope everyone has a Happy Easter and enjoys gathering with their families, sharing Easter basket treats, (don't eat the chocolate bunny all at once!), successful egg hunts and a lovely day.
