Easter Decorations 2015

It is officially spring!  I am ready for warmer days and sunshine.  We have had an abundance of rain this winter. While are friends up north are anxiously awaiting the snow to disappear, we are hoping our yard dries out soon!   Today I am sharing our Easter decor.  I don't go all-out with Easter decorations, but I do love the gorgeous pastel colors of this special season. And who doesn't love bunnies? And candy? 

I love my pink Easter tree!  My father asked, "What exactly is an Easter tree?"   At which point, my sweet husband explained, "A good excuse for her to buy Radko Easter ornaments!"  So true!! A tiny Longaberger basket filled 
with eggs looks perfect under the tree. 

Sweet little birds and butterflies from Michael's work perfectly with the Radko ornaments.  Floral stems serve as the perfect spring tree topper! 

My Happy Everything cookie jar is now adorned with a delightful bunny!  A Mason jar tied with burlap and pink ribbon and filled with Hershey's kisses is an Easter must!

Another bunny takes center stage on my small Happy Everything 
cookie jar turned utensil holder. 

White bunnies adorned with festive pink and green ribbons make a cheerful 
statement in my office.  The "grass" is a Hobby Lobby find. 

And because I just couldn't resist, here is another Radko.  They are so cute!!!

Ok... last one! I promise!!

I hope you have a great week!!  Here's to warmer days and sunshine!  
I will be back soon to share our Easter tablescape.

More Vintage Pyrex

My Pyrex collection is growing!  It all started with two vintage Pyrex bowls.  One day my sister and I were browsing through a local consignment store when I saw two Pyrex bowls in the "last chance" section.  I immediately snapped them up.  I bought both of them for only nine dollars.  Since then I have found other pieces from antique shops and the same little consignment store.  I love finding vintage pieces!  They are so "retro" and cool - I can't imagine why anyone would sell them!  There is something about slipping on an apron and whipping up something yummy in a vintage mixing bowl.  It is so satisfying!

These are the two bowls that began my collection of Pyrex.
These bowls are Autumn Harvest. 

Aren't these blue pieces pretty?  I believe the pattern is Snowflake.  
They are a great size too! Perfect for a casserole for a small family like ours. 

I have two of the large pink gooseberry mixing bowls.  
I knew I already had one just like it, but I couldn't pass it up!  The casserole dish is Pink Daisy. Aren't they cheerful? 

These make me happy! I promise I feel a bit like Betty Crocker when I use them! 

If you like vintage Pyrex, check out this blog! Awesome! What an amazing collection!

Do you like vintage Pyrex?  If so, where do you typically buy it? Ebay?  Antique stores?  I want to keep growing my collection.  I am having a little Pyrex envy when I look at the picture above!  I think I need to go shopping... now.  :-)
