Happy Easter! I love all the light decorations that fill our home this time of year. Although the decor, egg hunts and chocolate bunnies are fun, it is important to remember that all aside they are merely sport. Easter is so much more! Christ is ALIVE! What He did on the cross for me, for you, to save us from the hell we deserve. It is impossible to fathom. But now He has risen! He LIVES!!
I put together this centerpiece by filling an apothecary jar with Spanish moss and grass. I found the nest outside in the yard and made the tiny eggs from colorful origami paper. I had seen something similar displayed while shopping at Pottery Barn a couple years ago.
A vintage egg-tree stands guard on my living room side table. I love the patina on these old hand twisted wire pieces. I collect anything from wire baskets to cooling racks, and in my opinion the rustier they are the better!
I love these vintage pots. You probably already guessed, as I have them everywhere!
This is the season of new life. I see it all around me from my awakening garden to the robins busy making their nests in the pines. It is everywhere. I remember once when I was a little girl back home on the farm, my dad woke me up at sunrise one Easter Sunday. He told me to hurry back to the birthing pen. I will never forget watching that little calf being born that Easter morning. I had seen calves born many times before, but just watching this little one take it's first steps as the sun peeked over the barn, brought tears to my eyes. It reminded me of the new life we receive from God's precious gift to us, His only Son.
The tomb is empty, my friends! Rejoice! He has risen, indeed!
