Here comes Peter Cottontail...

(oval embroidery hoop, tulle tied on the same as here, and a little picket fence bunny:)

hopping down the bunny trail...sooner than ever! Easter just snuck right up on us!!!  I had my St. Patrick's Day decorations down and Easter up promptly after the 17th, but I'm just showing you now:)  I had a lot of fun decorating for Easter.  I love the springy colors!!!

my ever changing shelf...

subway Easter art we did last year, the eggs you see there are MDF, the brain-child of Audrey, after she saw them on a Groopdealz one day and we decided to see if we could cobble together materials to make them ourselves.  Big thanks to Michelle for donating the MDF and our other friend Sam for cutting them!
the eggs before being decorated:)

my picket fence bunnies were inspired by these...i had white bunnies so i decided to paint the sticks instead of leaving them natural. i had the eggs to make the banner i linked to...but i liked the bunnies better and i ran out of room to put things:)

the jars are painted on the inside, i poured paint in the bottom, maybe 1-2 inches and then turned the jar upside down on a paper plate to let it drain out. it's pretty cool to watch. there will be spots where the paint won't be uniform, i just took a foam brush and gently evened it out, and you really can't tell:)  more eggs, more bunnies...the printed subway art is from eighteen25 they have lots of different ones for different seasons/holidays and i really like them:)  i always print mine 8x10 from Costco and they come out beautifully.

another shot of the picket fence garland....

close up of eggs,cause i love the bling on the little one:)

so we are ready for Easter! and frankly, i like the decorations so much, they may stay up for the majority of April, since Easter got a little short changed being in the same month as St. Patrick's Day:)

I agree on the whole leaving them up for a while into April. They look awesome!! I heart the picket fences and the MDF eggs. Very cool! Happy Easter!
