Happy Easter!

Crown Him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon His throne;
Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns
All music but its own:
Awake my soul, and sing
Of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King
Throughout eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of love;
Behold His hands and side,
Rich wounds, yet visible above,
In beauty glorified:
No angel in the sky
Can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends His burning eye
At mysteries so bright...

~Written by Matthew Bridges, 1851

Thank You, Jesus, for your amazing sacrifice at the cross...


************************************************





I am putting this in a separate little section, because I didn't want to take away from the emphasis on the true meaning of Easter...but I still did want to show you a few things I have been up to...

I put another bunny in a different pot, and tied a ribbon around it. I ended up keeping the black toile ribbon around the other bunny on a stick from the last post...




I put some plates on the wall, but still am not sure it's exactly right. I'll probably pull them down and add a couple smaller ones in with the rest...




These aren't real eggs...Just for fun, I put some speckled eggs I bought at Michaels into a egg carton, an idea I copied from something I saw at Pier One...




I also finished tweaking with this topiary I found at JoAnns. The little wood box was originally a dark green, which wasn't ugly, but didn't go at all with my dining room. I sanded it until the wood was smooth and then sprayed it white...
the picture of it is not the best, I was having trouble getting a good one of it!


Anyway... I sure hope you had a wonderful, blessed Easter Sunday, and that you have a great Monday, too! :)

Hope you had a great Easter! I did! Love those plates hung around the mirror and the topiary. And, of course, all the cute bunnies!

I'm back from a long break as well - your Easter decorations are really cute. It makes me laugh when I see "bunny on a stick". :)
Hope you had a great Easter with your family!

Aw Jenni~ thanks for your super sweet comment. You made me smile like you always do hun! Had fun catching up here.
Love the plates against the colored wall. So very pretty!
Glad your hubby is better now. It's hard when they're sick and it throws your whole schedule off, doesn't it?
Many hugs and springtime best wishes to you and yours and belated Happy Easter, too!
