On top of cute bunnies and eggs and flowers and prettiness, it’s the celebration of the greatest gift I’ve ever been given, which is Christ’s death and his triumph over it. I know, I know… I said the greatest gift was the Lightscoop, but actually, it was Salvation.
Over the weekend, I put out some Easter decorations though not too many. There’s something about Spring that makes me want to get rid of clutter and keep the décor to a minimum.
For the mantle, I took away a lot of the clutter and just added the pink and white dogwood branches, a ceramic rabbit and some spring colored books.
The branches are fake, but this that window to the right is the only window in the room. That means, real flowers and plants don’t like my house. At least I’m going to blame it on the house… not my amazing ability to kill things… by things, I mean plants. I can generally keep animals alive…
Let’s act like I didn’t just show you a picture of my unmade bed covered in dirty clothes, ok?
Back to Easter…
My Mom found this guy at TJ Maxx a couple of weeks ago for $10. I LOVE him. He’s hanging on the wall when you walk into the Family Room.
We’ve always had an Easter tree at our house. I didn’t' know until recently that this isn’t common, but I have one and I it makes me think of Easters growing up.
Seriously, how old do I sound? "Back in the good ole days..."
What about you? Do you do a lot of Easter or Spring decorating at your house?
