Easter in the bedroom...

We have several faux fireplace mantles in our home that regularly receive makeovers. A few of my favorite Easter treasures are mixed with some of my regular goodies on the master bedroom mantle this Easter holiday.
The bunny tag was an Easter gift from my friend Renee (My Vintage Mending) several years ago.

The pom pom bunny on top of a felted egg is a gift from Viv (Viv's Whimsy).

The yellow pom pom chick is also another creation from Viv.  Love the pink painted cheeks.

My ever-growing collection of lantern bulbs thanks to Laurie from Magpie Ethel stays up year-round.

My shadowbox (supplies from Meri  at ImagiMeri's Creations) and pink paper lanterns have also become permanent bedroom fixtures.

A certain friend who wishes to remain nameless, sent me a large envelop with vintage Easter cards.  I've added a few mini baskets with the cards and they make a rather nice garland on the fireplace.

Easter posts continue later this week with a few more of my favorite vintage pieces!


PS.  Hang onto a few of those plastic eggs.

Super easy craft coming tomorrow.
XOXO

Your garland is adorable. I had forgotten about mini baskets. I have some somewhere, but heck if I'll be able to locate them before Easter.
