Spring Mantle

I don't have a mantle in my home
The best I can do is to put a few Eastery items on my entry console

I've used a few of my late husband's old books
He had several Winnie the Pooh books
And the colors fit in just great

I found this cute bunny at a thrift store the other day
For only $3 
He's about 1 foot tall 

My mom hand painted this egg several years ago
I think it fits perfectly on this little guys back
In fact the little egg he is holding happens to be the same colors

I used my new (old) silver footed tray
to set the bunny and a musical nest on

I almost always have a few candy sticks around the house
I usually pick them up at one of my favorite antique stores
I added them to this cute little tin basket I've had for years

This is the first year I've used these egg cups
That I found a few years ago

So, it's not a mantle and it's not gorgeous
As some are I've seen this year
But I have many little hands that love to touch things
Therefore, I must decorate with items
That can be loved and cuddled by sweet little hands

I find JOY in things that remind me of happy times
Where are you finding your JOY today?

  1. Who needs a mantle and fine expensive pieces when you have many little hands that like to touch and hold and love on things you have? Not me! Loving the way YOU do Easter! xo Diana

  2. I love what you did! It looks very much like spring and Easter. Bits of happiness spread around.

  3. Your Easter vignette is darling!
    I'm sure it will bring lots of smiles to the little faces that belong to the hands that will want to hold these pieces of spring delight.
    Great job of passing on the Joy of the season.
