Easter Decorating 2013: Bunny Shit Crazy

First of all I don’t really know how it happened. Somewhere in my cloudy memory I’ve always held a mental image of a white painted iron rabbit sitting on a hearth.  I’ve always decorated for Easter, but this year I actually made an attempt to fill the house more so it could carry over into Spring.  Somehow I got it into my head I would do Bunnies. It was very likely the multiple brain washing trips I’ve made to Micheal’s  Hobby Lobby, and Joann etc over the last few months as I take on more projects than I can ever possibly finish…manic much?  I blame Pinterest for this girl’s mania. It’s evil sent me minion style on a lengthy and expensive quest for the perfect bunnies, and chicks, and eggs, and ooh look turtles are back in fashion and well….the end result is here.  I played a lot of yes, no, maybe so as I decorated this year because almost everything was new. It was exhausting and I hope to not repeat another ridiculous quest of decorating until June when I am hosting the welcome new alumna sorority event slash wine tasting party…on a weeknight, in Indiana. Yes, shutting up, you’re right, I freaking love it.   I tried to get  a chick and a nest in every area and at the end of the effort I am supremely pleased with  myself.  I’m considering taking on the porch next.  For now I have tzatziki (I have no clue how to spell that and no desire to look it up) to make because my lovely Babu is making me Greek for dinner.  Happy Spring is coming…right after the 6″ of snow this week. I tried for way longer than I’d like to get these in a good order, I’m over it Lovies! Have a great week.

Put some Easter Decor up and I did an Egg Tree

I  took a day off for me with the hopes of getting outside in the  dirt and sunshine later.  I can see this is the start of my series of months where I take a  day or two off and just try to relax and do what I want.  Which is usually write,  garden or if I haven’t been training regularly, run. Later I’ll be running 6 miles but for now I’m finally getting around to putting up these Easter Decoration pics.  I have collected egg ornaments for a while, but recently had to curb my collection because I was running out of room on my metal egg tree.  This year I had an idea that I could make an Easter tree like I made a Fall tree.   I  was slightly concerned I might not like having a tree out so close to Christmas, but as it turns out I think it looks kinda neat. I was even able to take the metal egg tree back down to 2-tiers from 4 this year.  Which also mean I now have more room for new egg ornaments. It’s a win!  The rest of my sparse Easter Decor is mostly just stuff i picked up here and there. I did change the ribbons on the mantle for the season though and I really like them. I think this opens up the possibility to change the ribbon for the season and leave my DIY topiary trees up all year round.  I have another one of the candlesticks too so I am now officially even more bummed I didn’t find 3 of those little clearance tree cones.  Oh well, it can’t always be an “all rainbows shooting out of a Unicorn’s butt” day can it?  Here are the pics, enjoy.
