Easter Mantel

Good Friday Morning!  It is finally warm here in SW Virginia and even though it is supposed to rain today and tomorrow, I am not complaining!  At least it's not that dreaded "S" word.

Last weekend I got busy and decorated my living room mantel for Easter.  I had lots of fun making this banner as a reminder of why we celebrate Easter!  He Is Risen Indeed!
I love these bunnies that look like real chocolate!
Both of these bunnies were bought at thrifts stores and were made my someone who does ceramics.  I think they are cute but just a little creepy.  Exactly what I like!
I added in some silk pansies and some glitter eggs with my bunnies.  I love my glitter.
I love those metal wreath holders that they sell at Tuesday Mornings.  They are perfect for hanging stockings by the fireplace.  Easter stockings?  Yep!  Do you see my creepy 7-Up elf photo bombing?
I made these girl and boy bunny pillows several years ago.
I love these old German blown glass Easter eggs.  These belonged to my grandmother.
 
Hoping to hit a couple of estate sales this weekend, even though neither sounds very promising, but you never know!
 
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
 
Blessings
 
Linda

What a pretty mantle. So much to look at. I love it all, but I have to say that the German blown glass Easter eggs from your Grandmother are such treasures. Good luck thrifting/shopping today!

How special that you have those lovely eggs of your grandmother's. What a treasure! I like your creepy cute blue bunny -- looks like a Cabbage Patch doll dressed in a bunny suit!
Wonderful banner to celebrate Easter!
