A Touch Of Easter

As soon as our St. Patrick's Day dinner was over, we said goodbye to all the shamrocks and leprechauns and packed them away until next year. Now normally, I would leave them up a bit longer, but another special day is quickly approaching and that means only one thing...time to decorate for Easter and spring. Never mind that we were right in the middle of a snow and ice storm, right? In any case, here are a few pictures of our home all decked out for Easter.

These precious bunnies take their spot on the kitchen table every year...

right next to our Easter snack dishes.

This cute signs hangs near my desk...

right around the corner from these...

and these. The kids made these in Kindergarten, and I love them so...I hang them up every year.

My mom got this for me when I was first married. I still remember Madison putting the baby bunny inside, and now Flynn does the same.

The Easter mantle...

and the book basket underneath. Those beautiful bunnies are my mom's. She used to put them in the big bay window in our house when I was little. When she and my dad moved into their apartment, she gave them to me. But don't tell my sisters...I don't think they know...

The holiday tree...

with bunnies and chicks...

and the movie basket complete with bunny glasses and plastic eggs.

This cute little guy rests on the bookcase...

near the most adorable Little People set ever.

I can't forget our treat of choice... which somehow tastes even better all decked out for Easter.

And finally, our Bunny Cake candle which, burns every evening in our cozy home.

Happy Easter!


  1. Thanks for the Easter tour! I wish we were neighbors! (this post makes us feel as we are!)


  2. Where to begin??!! Really, Bunny Cake candle?? Where can I get one? How yummy must that smell!!
    Again, I must say that your decor is just too cute and you even changed your blog background too. How Springy, despite the fact that we're still sitting in feet (as in more than one...or two...or more)of snow.
    I've decided that I will contract you out for one year and you are to arrive at my doorstep for every holiday with decor in hand. I will fly you here and back home again if you just make my house all cute and homey like yours. Deal??

    Blessed Holy Week, Billie Jo!

  3. Everything looks wonderful. I love to look around your cozy home. I think it's great how you have decorations for your tree for each holiday. And those bunnies from your mom are so special to have. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day!

  4. Oh Billie Jo... it's delightful! I adore everything! Oh how I love that you have a lit tree up all year with bunny ornaments now! Some day I'd love to start doing that. Where do you find ornaments for all of these other seasons/holidays? I think it adds such a nice touch! I love the books and the movies. I love taking all of that out too. I'll have to get around with my camera to get a few pictures. Thanks for sharing yours! Have a happy Holy Week! ~tara

  5. I just love your home. I can feel the love in your home each time I read your posts.
    I love how you have a candle for each season as well as the adorable tree.
    Have a wonderful day! I am off to find some kit kat bunny ears.

  6. Oh my goodness, it all makes me want to live there!
    I'm sure the kiddos and hubby appreciate it!

  7. Love seeing all of your Easter decorations! We have been so busy that my shamrock wreath is still on the front door!
    Hope you are having a great week!
    Elizabeth :)

  8. Thanks for stopping by!
    Not sure how to do that bloglovin either. I list the blogs on the side of my blog I follow and it updates itself. Then I travel around quite a bit also to see who is out there. I see a lot of familiar faces in your comment box!

    I have been reading a lot of non-fiction. List your favs. sometime and I will look them up!

    Happy Holy Week!
    ps...I need to get my Easter decor out also.

  9. I need to find a spare minute to get our decor out here! Love seeing how you decorate your home for every season - love it!


Thanks so much for saying hello!
