Easter Decor Party

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  Today, I link with Lynette at Lynette's L.A.M. for the Easter Decor Party.  Thanks for hosting such a fun meme, Lynette!  I will warn you now that this is a long post with alot of pictures. 

So, I'll show you a few of our things. 
I found this cute Easter basket at Home Goods this year.  I should own stock in that company!  I added the Pier 1 'bunny on a stick' and butterflies, but the picture is a little blurred, so they are hard to see.  The bunny was an antique store purchase this year.
This bunny is a music box I found at Cracker Barrel about 5-6 years ago.

The 3 little rabbits came from Tuesday Morning, this year.

This was my first Etsy purchase.
Got the green plate at Home Goods and the bunny basket at a thrift store several years ago.

I don't shop on eBay much anymore, but this little rabbit needed to be adopted by me.
The great room mantel
Couldn't decide which one of these pictures was best, so I'm showing both.
Up close...
The trees came from Tuesday Morning this year, I've had the planter for awhile, and the basket was a recent thrift store find. 
The Easter sign came from Hobby Lobby this year, the little chicks were on clearance at Tuesday Morning last year.
I collect vintage Easter planters.  This started when I first started thrifting, you could pick them up for almost nothing.  Now, apparently, others have decided to collect them too, and they're not so cheap.  For Easter, I like to display them in my bookcases.

The other side...

The keeping room mantel...
The plate came from Pier 1 clearance,
the 'HOP' blocks from 'sassytalk' on Etsy,

and I don't remember where the pink rabbit was purchased.

The old rabbit and chicks have funny faces, and I picked them up at a church yard sale.  I think they are pretty old (as in, older than me :) because they told me a man's grandmother made them, and I believe he was a senior citizen.  The chick's hats are removable and the rabbit has false eyelashes.  The wire bird basket was found at Cracker Barrel last year.
The kitchen...

The island...

The 'Happy Spring' sign was a $3.99 find at Ross this year.  I debated on whether or not to get it, but since the green matched and tulips are my favorite flower, it was a keeper.  Can you imagine handpainting a piece of slate and only selling it for $3.99?
The teapot is new, this year, from Home Goods because he matched the vase on the fridge. 
See all those cookbooks?  They're just for looks!  Ha!  :)

The bar...

My favorite Easter display this year...
except that I never got lavendar for the vase
The birds and 'Bloom' sign came from Michael's this year.
Love the cross.  It was a recent Hob Lob find.
'Let life love and joy overflow from your heart'.

On to the dining room...

you saw the table featured here last week on Tablescape Thursday

I recently found this plate and I just could not walk away.  I tried.
There are too many rabbits around here, so some had to be caged.
The soup tureen was a birthday gift this year.  It was purchased at Tuesday Morning also.

I'm also linking up with the following blogs:
