Just a Little Easter TEASE !!!

Here is my sweet little candle holder that I used for Christmas, Valentine's and now Easter. It's my best buy!!! The bunny on the right is one my Mom made at a ceramic class years ago. I just love him, so Mom gave him to me. Bunnies make me smile :) This tin is vintage along with the paper bunnies. The bunnie's have seen better Easter's. I believe they were candy containers when new.
Below are cottage cheese containers that can be used as Easter Baskets. Do any of you gals remember them??!! I DO and I remember eating cottage cheese so we could have the sweet containers. These were boughten at different times at estate sales and antique stores. The candy box is fun to have and it's pink!!

My three Easter candy boxes. More sweet bunnies. Is Fanny Farmer candy still in business???






Isn't this a sweet bunny in the flower basket filled with colored eggs?!





As I said earlier, Kailee and I were going through the Easter to see what treasures were in there and I am showing you "bits & pieces" of Easter. The mantle is still a "work" is progress and when it's finished, of course I'll share that with you:)
So, now that I have given you a "peak" at some of my Easter decorations...do you have the 'bug" to get out your Easter treasures. It's not too early. I have more and will show them later...remember it's just a "tease" :)
Remember to see Jan at Rose Haven/Jan & Tom's Place and you can sign up for a new blog banner and background, or as I have just learned"Blog Dress" or something like that :)
See you soon.
Warmly,
Deb :)

Hi Deb!!! I love EASTER!!
The buunies are cute, My swap partner and I finally got in touch and exchanged our goodies. I really enjoyed the swap and hope to do it again soon. I still have to take some pics as soon as I get a camera, mine is not working right at this time. Did you put your pics up yet? I'm glad I met you through this swap maybe one day we can be partners!!

Hi Deb, Love your Easter decor, especially the vintage stuff! So cute! Can't wait to see your mantel decorated! I'm trying to remember where I stashed my Easter decorations. Since there wasn't much of it, it could be tucked away anywhere! LOL!

Your new background and banner is so pretty! Jan did a wonderful job on it!

Hope your FIL is doing better! My prayers are with him!

Thank you so much for your blogging encouragement and support, and most importantly your friendship! ~hugs Rhonda :)

I have lots of Easter things to put out but have not decided when I will do it. Your pretty Easter treasures might be just the inspiration I need to get it done this weekend. That would be something fun for the granddaughters to do Saturday evening! Thanks, Sherry

Linda said...

Hi Deb...love the tease and it's sure is getting me in the mood to start my decorating too. I remember the sweet little cottage cheese containers... we did make little baskets, sadly I have no idea what became of them. Remember the little green baskets strawberries came in? Had fun making baskets with them too. hugs, Linda

Barb said...

I just remember how much trouble i had with the last one, and not sure i want to go thorough that again, especially while i'm doing taxes!! YUCK!!!

Thank you for the picture of the fanny farmer boxes..I have been searching the internet for them. Laura Secord used the same boxes for their eggs. You brought back so many memories. Do you have any pictures of the sides of the box with the rabbits painting the eggs??
Thank you
