Bunnies and carrots go together at Easter. The concrete bunny is new for the garden this year. Before he gets dirty outside, he’s useful for a little indoor enjoyment.
You may be surprised that I actually bought a few new things for Spring this year. Even The Land of Making Do needs little additions now and then. Don’t worry. I’ll be making full use of carrots during Spring, Summer, and through the harvest in Fall.
Vine carrots are from Tuesday Morning ($3 and $4).
Carrot minis ($3/set of 3) also from Tuesday Morning were meant for some sort of napkin ring DIY.
I’m prone to change my mind (just ask HH), so there’s no transformation yet….
The DIY Spanish Moss Mat should give us visions of Easter egg hunts on green lawns.
Eggs go with Easter. An egg dying kit reminds us of preparing for egg hunts. It won’t be long before it’s time to dye some real eggs.
Jelly beans are useful as Easter basket candies.
A basket of colored eggs definitely speak Easter. This sugar-free, cavity-free Easter egg side-walk chalk makes an egg-celent (sorry, couldn’t resist!) basket filler.
A moss bunny on a stick (Pier One) is something versatile for many types of projects.
Its mate was included in my DIY Easter Cross Wreath on the front door. The wreath ribbon was also repeated on this basket handle.
Napkins are shaped into bunny ears – floppy like the real thing. (Here’s the tutorial for the rings and napkins.)
Pink salad plates with bunnies and carrots are useful for Easter. (Bordallo Pinneiro from Portugal purchased at T. J. Maxx many years ago.)
PAM’s light blue china dinner plates (Meadow Breeze by Syracuse) are a nice Easter color, and they match the DIY Plate Runners.
Rattan chargers ($5 from Wally World) add texture to the place setting and match the vine carrots. After seeing chargers like these at Pier One for a price around $10 (yes, each!), I felt it was time to splurge for them at Wal-Mart. (Yes, aren’t we all spoiled by $1 chargers at Christmas time?)
The wired vine-look napkin rings remind me of the crown of thorns placed on Jesus at his crucifixion.
So does this wreath over the piano. Definitely Easter.
That’s what Easter is all about, after all. Without the resurrection of Jesus, none of our other Easter traditions would have meaning.
As we gather for sunrise services on Easter morning, hunt eggs, and gather with friends and/or family on a warm afternoon, let us be thankful for His gift of sacrifice.
Do you attend sunrise service on Easter? Do you get together with family or friends in the afternoon? Do you hide eggs for the kids to find?
