Drop Cloth Pillows, Coffee Filters and Wheat Grass ~ Oh My!

I love this week before Easter...all of the meal planning, egg dyeing, supply gathering and spring nesting put me in such a good mood. The warm sunshine that we bathed in earlier this week made my hop a little more hip~pity as well. Don't get me wrong...I couldn't hop to save my life... I'm just saying...

I wanted to share some of my Easter decor antics...because I am a sharing girl.

I've been enjoying all of the fun being had with coffee filters and wheat grass in creative~ville~land over the past few weeks...I am grateful for all of the generous ideas.

You all know my love of the drop cloth...I got it bad. Don't want the cure. I thought I would make up some Easter~y drop cloth pillows...they are easy~peasy and super duper different and weird and goof~ball in the most wonderful, rustic, make~do way!

Having said all of this it is clear that I am HOOKED ON EASTER DECOR...yep, hooked on every last egg, Peeps loving, feather, carrot, rabbit, Cadbury, nest, coffee filter, flower budding, shinny Easter grass, drop cloth, jelly bean, re~birth moment of it. I am hooked on Julia too...her Hooked on Fridays are the chocolate bunny ears of all of our holidays!


Drop Cloth pillows for Easter...

I love taking the ordinary and doing something unexpected with it...

But then again, I have done this so many times...I guess it is not so unexpected...
This was fun...I took a metal hanging plant thing and put it on an urn...

And of course, added some polka~dot eggs...

Some cabbage, carrots and chickens...all fake~a~rama...

Budding branches from the yard are fun to decorate for holidays...

A nest perched...

Coffee filter buds and sweet blossoms from a dollar store bouquet...ole!

Baby baskets of little eggs...

Another view...

Bunny in a tarnished teapot...

Egg and orange potpourri...

Close up and personal...
I have a drawer that I just throw old potpourri in and use from year to year...

An old egg given new life on a old candlestick and topped with a little finial...

Nest...

Eggs in a crate...

Nest on a doll chair...

Carrots and Oranges...I'm HOOKED on the color orange...but that is another Friday...

Eggs in a cart...

Bunnies everywhere!
That's right sister! What gave it away?

Everywhere!!!

More...

Again...

Still...

Every bird needs a bonnet...



Happy Easter to all...

Thank you Julia for another fun Friday of Hooked folly!!!

I am sending you virtual chocolate eggs and bunnies...you are the bees knees!
