Easter Softly

I wasn't going to decorate for Easter because my house is in disarray but after seeing so many gorgeous Easter vignettes in blog land  I  decided to create a small tabletop vignette. I love bunnies and chicks but I decided to do something a little different. Easter is a very holy holiday so I went with that aspect.  I used one of my Mary planters and a Cross that I bought from the dollar tree. I added silver leaf to the raised parts of the Cross. I also decorated plastic eggs that I bought from the Dollar Tree with hand stamped tissue paper and silver leaf. I glittered some of the eggs with a mixture of glass glitter and glamour dust. I created an arrangement in an urn that I've had for many years. It used to be a deep burgundy... I spray painted it silver using Krylon spray paint in  Metallic Brilliant Silver.  I added twigs from my back yard and some silk Cherry blossoms that I had on hand. I arranged them in the urn an added moss and tiny birds nest to the branches. I put three of the decorated eggs in the urn  on top of the moss. I painted some crystals turquoise to use on a chandelier for my kitchen. I decided to add them to the branches for a little color and sparkle. Besides my kitchen is a long way from having the chandy hung  might as well put the crystals to good use. Here are some shots of my vignette;

This is something  different  than my usual but I really like it. Its very soothing somehow. I hope you like it too.

  15. Hi Karen, I am visiting from Debbie's Newbie Party. I am now a follower. Love all of your decorations but I really like how you did your tree. Last week I was going to do a tree, but I couldn't find my old urn! Didn't really want to spend the money to get another one so I'm looking around the house for another container. Come visit me. http://cottageatthecrossroads.com

  20. Hi Karen,
    Thanks for stopping by! Returning the visit from Debbiedoo's Newbie party. Love the juxtaposition of the natural elements (twigs, moss) and chandelier crystals in your vignette. Did you use a special glass paint? The turquoise color is really pretty.

  27. Very nice. I have several beaded eggs that our oldest son made. I helped him by stringing the beads. He sold them to a store and that started his adventure. It has now blossomed into design school and an internship this summer in New York City. He is incredibly talented.
    Thank you for sharing with all of us.
