Hopefully you all aren't tired of seeing my glass apothecary jar! I love changing out the contents with the seasons and holidays, and thought I'd share with you my Easter version!
I've filled it with a bunch of eggs that I created last year, that I decoupaged and embellished with bits of this and that. Also included are faux eggs in the prettiest shade of light blueish green, as well as a sweet tiny faux nest complete with a teeny tiny egg and feathers!
I've tucked moss here and there for filler. The eggs have been decoupaged with vintage sheet music, and pages from a vintage French book. I added pretty ribbon in the shades of aqua and blue that I love.
Aren't these blue paper flowers gorgeous? I think I picked them up at Michael's. To some of the eggs, I added pale yellow silk hydrangea blossoms, that I dusted with a bunch of glitter.
Here's a look from above, with the lid removed.
It's on our dining table, where we can enjoy it each day. Come summer, I'll add special sea shells and some sand, for a beachy feel. But for now, I am loving my eggs!
With Easter just a few days away, I am reminded of days past when my mom would take my older sister and I to pick out a special outfit for Easter Sunday church services. It was such a treat, and a big adventure picking out a brand new dress, as well as shoes and a purse to match! Often we would get new hats and I also remember wearing little white gloves when I was very young. Wow, things sure have changed, haven't they?
Below is a photo of yours truly, taken at Sunday School, when I was not quite 3 years old. I'm sorry for the poor picture quality. Not only is this photograph a little worse for wear, but we don't have a scanner, so I had to take a picture of it.
I look scared to death, don't I? I was painfully shy as a little girl, and into adult hood as well. I think this must have been taken at Easter, as the date is April. Notice my little pocket book with the pretty floral embellishment? I started loving all things embellished at a very early age, I guess:) I have to laugh at the purse though, wondering what I kept in it? Candy???!
I was wearing a little pale pink dress, white sweater, and of course shiny black t-strap shoes and white knee socks. So very lady like! Oh, and a barrette in my hair, too.
If only life could be so simple now...........
Wishing you and your family a very blessed Easter!
