You're never too old for an Easter Basket...

I remember fixing Easter baskets for our girls even after they were married. I knew how much they enjoyed them, even when they weren't really candy fanatics any longer. They might be grown-ups, but they still wanted and expected, their baskets. So we ever get too old for an Easter basket?

As much as I'd gladly nibble a few chocolate bunnies, and creme eggs, I try not to indulge myself. I do know that my mom has a white cake with 7 Minute Frosting and coconut, that's my belated birthday tradition. So no other sugar treats for me. I'll happily enjoy an Easter basket with a framed vintage Easter card, and some decorated eggs.

My little pot of faux yellow iris have been doing more than "double duty" this Spring. I've used them in most of my Easter and Spring vignettes. I love them where I photograph them, but then when I do something else, they show up in some new spot. 

Year before last I purchased the beautiful book from Jeanne d'Arc Living, "Fairytale Easter", and was fortunate to find eggs of several sizes that were created from that inspiration. I planned on making some of my own but with two moves this last year, I just haven;t gotten to it. I love the natural elements with torn paper, feathers, and bits of twine and lace.

My vintage basket is joining some of my Spring Cloches
here in the Dining Room.

You might enjoy these two posts from a couple of years ago...
My first post on the book "Fairytale Easter"
and then my Easter Vignette.

Have a blessed Good Friday,
and a wonderful Easter!
