Easter Eggs dyed

Vintage glass and Easter Bunny sculpture
Easter Bunny Vignette
I meant to decorate the hutch for Easter, but I only pulled together this vignette in a corner of it.  The bunnies are rummage sale finds.  The tumblers and glassware were collected in the last year.

Even thought the bunnies are cheap, (probably from a dollar store), cute little bunny sculptures now make me smile, and I find myself picking them up at rummage sales often.  I hope to make a spring hutch arrangement soon.

Sometimes, the accomplishment is just getting Easter Eggs dyed (with the teenagers.)  Accomplished the Saturday before Easter...

We used the pastel eggs in my vintage egg platter (below)...  My 15 year old suggested the rainbow arrangement. (He took an interest!  :)

I didn't have lofty goals this Easter, besides surviving the earlier then usual school spring break.

I hope you had a blessed Easter.  Cherish your loved ones.

Hi Jeanne! Oh, the little bunnies are so cute and your colored eggs look great. It's been a long time since I tried to dye an egg! Thanks so much for popping in to see me.

Loved the way you celebrated Easter. The eggs really make a pretty and colorful ring around the berries.

Your coloured eggs are so pretty and make a lovely ring around your strawberries! Wonderful idea! Thank you for sharing at my HOME and have a lovely weekend.

Your colored eggs are lovely! I boiled eggs this year but my college aged children were not home in time to try to color them. We did enjoy deviled eggs and egg salad though!

Doni said...

Wow those colors are AMAZING!! My eyes just popped looking at that!! And the egg presentation with the rainbow and strawberries just makes me want to go eat eggs and strawberries!! Y'all did a great job! Thanks so much for sharing with us for my party!

Hi Jeanne! I'm a new visitor via Anything Blue Friday. I LOVE your pretty pastel eggs, especially the rainbow arrangement. I'm so sad that this year was the first year we didn't get to color eggs with the kids...we were away on spring break and got back in town late the night before. Rats. Glad to see other families carrying on the tradition with teenagers! :)

I haven't dyed eggs in years - the children growing up and such - but perhaps I'll do it next year just for the kid in me :) Love your sweet bunnies - I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

Hi Jeanne, thank you so much for stopping by my blog! The bunnies are adorable! Sometimes the dollar store has some really cute seasonal items. Your eggs are so pretty. And your son had an awesome idea for displaying them! So pretty and colorful :) I would be proud!
