Easter Decor

White Rabbit: [singing] I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date, 
No time to say "Hello, Goodbye"
I'm late, I'm late, I'm late.
... remember that?'s appropriate in more ways than one.
I'm late posting this, I should have done it this morning.

And, I have two little rabbits under my cloche to show you.

 Mad Hatter: Would you like a little more tea?
: Well, I haven't had any yet, so I can't very well take more.
March Hare
: Ah, you mean you can't very well take less.
Mad Hatter
: Yes. You can always take more than nothing.

Mad Hatter: Do you care for tea?  
Alice : Why, yes. I'm very fond of tea.  
March Hare : If you don't care for tea, you could at least make polite conversation!
Alice: [turning down an offer for a cup of tea] I'm sorry, but I just haven't the time!   
March Hare : The time! The time! Who's got the time?

I enjoy Alice In Wonderland because of the nonsense in it.
Sometimes I just enjoy nonsense, don't you?
I know it doesn't have anything to do with Easter, in fact what do bunnies and eggs have to do with Easter?  Nothing, right?  But then we who love to decorate, know that and just like to have fun with rabbits and eggs and such.

It's truly about Jesus dieing for us and then rising from the grave.
And that's the gospel in a nutshell, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  

Experiencing this salvation is the most fabulously, wonderful thing that we can ever experience.  It's what Jesus died for, and if you're like me you want everything that the Lord has for you.  I'm so thankful for Easter and the message that we are reminded of at this time of year.

Have a wonderful day my friends and please go over to Ann's at On Sutton Place to see lots of wonderful Easter decorating inspiration and don't forget to say hello to Ann.

Hugs, Cindy

Very cute Cindy! I love the initials. We just made a large M for our front door. It was a boxy shape M and we covered it in twine then added a pretty flower and ribbon to hang, very cute and fun to do with my hubby. :)

I love looking at all of your lovely decorating ideas. The mantel over your new fire-place is a great spot to compose a display. I'd like to have your talent, but I do get some ideas from your lovely blog. I like the aqua border around the pictures today.

Your Easter decor (and your kitchen) is lovely, my friend. And yes, I enjoy a little Easter whimsy and eggs/rabbit, but I also cherish the real meaning of Easter as you said.

Just hopping by to say hi...and found a hopping fun post! I can't believe that Easter will b here already, good thing, I am so ready for Spring. You are too, such cuteness here! :)

Deb said...

Hi Cindy,

You have lovely things. Thanks for the visit to my blog!


Pamela Gordon said...

Your home looks lovely for Easter and I agree, that the bunnies and eggs are not what Easter is about. I am so thankful for the truly special meaning of Easter in the Scriptures. And that it makes us 'sisters in Christ'! Blessings to you my friend. Hugs, Pam

Rhonda said...

well Cindy, I knew you created beautiful spaces but I did not realize you were so witty and funny.

This post really made me smile. The nonsense talk reminds me a little of my grandchildren's logic too.

Love your Easter touches! I could hear the bunnies talking. lol You are right. It's easy to get sidetracked off the real meaning of Easter. Such a meaningful time to think about the ultimate price He paid! Eternally grateful.
Happy Easter dear friend!

Everything looks so fresh and pretty! I love the black "S." You are so good at layering the things on your shelves. Thank you so much for linking up to our party. I haven't had time to visit as many links as I would like but I made sure to come here. I hope you had a blessed Easter with your family. I'm off for one more day and then back to work on Tuesday. Have a good week friend!

Nancy said...

Very sweet Easter decor, Cindy! Thank you for the special message of the true meaning of Easter!

Have a blessed week!

Your home is so lovely, Cindy. You're right, experiencing salvation is such a wonderful gift. A simple and wonderful gift as a result of something so sacrificial all because He loves us. I am so thankful in knowing that so many of my sweet blogging friends share in the knowledge of that gift. I pray that your Easter was a blessed day! xoxo

Shelia said...

Hi Cindy! Hope your Easter was wonderful! You're so right about what Easter really is all about. But we do love to decorate with our little rabbits and eggs. Have you heard of Resurrection Eggs? My daughter made some for my little grand daughter. I don't think she really understands at age two, but I just don't think you can start too early teaching the little ones about Jesus!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This is such a delightful post, Cindy! I've always liked "Alice in Wonderland" and the imagination of Lewis Carroll. Your kitchen looked very festive for the holiday.

I hope you had a very Happy and blessed Easter!
