Eggs, Chicks, Bunnies...Let's Review


Reviewing last year's Easter decorations.

I love to look back at my old photos to remind me what I did the year before. 

Do you remember my cute little chicks from above? I would love to find a few more for this year. They are just too cute! 

My mother's father had a grainery and hatchery.  
There would be baby chicks everywhere. As a kid I loved to go poking around the hatchery equipment. 

And at some point there would be boxes of dyed Easter chicks. I don't know if that tradition is still around or not. 


Last year was the year I played with egg displays in different containers around the house.

Using them on my ironstone platter may have been my favorite. 

I liked the simple farmhouse vibe. 


I also tried a porcelain bowl for fun.


These are the eggs that Hobby Lobby sold last year. 


I used this pedestal for an alternate display.


My twig bunny has held up a couple of years. 

He has a broken ear that I have to play with to get it to stand up. I will evaluate him after I bring him up from the basement in a few days. 

Hopefully his ear will make it another year if I assist with some hot glue. 


For this display I used a large black tray. 


Why did I use that horrible Easter grass in this wire basket? 

Tradition? Ha! I am not really sure. 

I would use it in my children's baskets and then find the shiny green strands around the house forever it seemed. 

I know it is early for Easter decorations, but I just love bunnies and chicks. I love to begin finding little bits and pieces to decorate the house. It seems like fun, and a way to break with winter. 


My little chicks and I want to know if you have begun thinking about spring around your house? 

I was going to post a new tablescape for you today...but not enough light for photography.

  3. Those little chicks are just the cutest little chicks I have seen in a long time. Just darling!!!! I love all your Easter decorations. They make me smile.
    When I was a kid there was always a 'corral' in front of the grocery store where you could buy chicks that had been dyed with food coloring. We had chickens at home but mother would always buy us two or three of them to take home. We would keep them in the house until they got big enough to go in the chicken coop with the other chickens. I don't think they do that anymore--as it is considered cruel but it was fun when we were kids to see them. xo Diana

  4. Those little chicks you bought are adorable. I found one lonely duck at Hobby Lobby...would have bought a dozen if they had them. The bunnies and chickens may stay around a while after the holidays. Baby chicks are not gifts...I can remember as a child seeing them in the dime stores. Poor things were doomed from the time they left the store.

  5. I love the green Easter grass! And of course, you're right: you used it because it's tradition. I've been searching for the egss my Mom used to put in our baskets, big, 2 piece hollow chocolate, beautifully decorated. She would always put my favorite candy inside.
