A bit of Easter decorating
Here is just a little bit (because that's all I've done) of Easter decorating. This is my ribbon board in the front hallway, all dressed up for Easter. I do have a few special vintage Easter cards and some very old ones with spring themes like crocuses.
I didn't change my hutch a lot for Easter, but did add a few things -- again, because I don't have a lot of Easter items. On the tip-top shelf, you'll see most of an egg-shaped Easter candle I acquired at a yard sale.
On the next shelf down, an antique papier-mache egg.
The middle shelf has my maple sugaring display, but I couldn't resist adding an egg-shaped soap in an old-looking votive holder. I have a spool inside the candle holder to prop the soap up.
On the bottom shelf, another papier-mache egg, plus my Royal Doulton Bunnykins mug and bowl from childhood. A closer look at the bottom shelf:
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
