Thrifty finds for an Easter centerpiece...

One of my favorite finds from my shopping adventures with my mom and sister on Saturday is this stitched piece featuring two bunnies. 

These bunnies are hard at work carrying precious eggs and flowers.

Aren't they delightful?

A fresh bouquet of pussy willows (also bought from my favorite antique store) are nestled inside a blue mason jar filled with faux Easter eggs.

I added a few miniature Easter baskets and nests (currently on discount at Michaels) to my branches.

Can you believe Easter is next Sunday?

I'm sure you aren't surprised, but I still have a few more Easter decorations and crafting ideas to share.

Have a lovely week ahead!
XOXO

Sweet embroidered bunnies! And oh how I love pussy willows! I saw they were "blooming" along the creek yesterday but since it's a public park, I didn't think I could get away with cutting some.

Easter is next Sunday? Oh dear. Time is going by way to fast these days! ♥

I love your sweet embroidered bunny tablerunner! That's the kind of thing I would have brought home. And I love the look of branches with fuzzy buds as a centerpiece, too. Our pear tree out front has it's buds, and I'm hoping that if this cold snowy thing ever stops, the neighborhood with erupt in a profusion of springy white flowers. I'm so ready.

Beautiful centerpiece. I can't believe next week is Easter, especially since we just got 6 inches of snow last night.

Pussy willows just scream SPRING and EASTER, don't they? I think I'll be decorating right up until Sunday, but that's ok, I'll just leave it all up for awhile after Easter! Love that sweet bunny runner!

I love vintage stitchery! That was such a great find! We love to decorate with willows as well, and of course a few lilies :) Easter blessings!

Oh Kim! Love the beautiful embroidered bunny linen. I found a fourth of July linen with an American Eagle over the weekend. I'll have to wait a few months to enjoy it! Glad you had some vintage luck with your finds over the weekend. Have a great week! Tricia
