Yes, It's *Still* Up!

Happy Sunday ... Happy Spring !! 

Yes, our Christmas tree turned Valentine tree, turned Easter tree is still alive and kicking in our kitchen.  I wonder how long I can keep it going ...

For a Spring welcome, I wrapped it in pink and white mesh, along with a striped pastel ribbon.

I then added lots of fun and budget-friendly ornaments, like this cute bunny, with a head full of feathers (from Pier One)!

And, this sweet bunny in a basket, from Michael's.  I also bought an inexpensive bunch of flowers from AC Moore, cut off each floral stem and scattered them about the tree, as well:

A carrot with fun feathers (also from Pier One) ...

I flanked the tree with a couple of ceramic bunnies that I had on hand ... this one reminding you to "see no evil" ...

annnnnd, the other reminding you to "speak no evil," either.

I filled our handy canisters with yummy Easter treats:

And, over on the other counter, added another splash of Easter:

Love this little, pink bunny from Michael's, who is nestled on shredded book pages (although, admittedly, I feel as though I'm suffocating him under the glass cloche) ...

Annnnnd, of course, I had to add a few pastel malted milk balls to a wine glass on one of our shelves ... I'm hoping that since they're high up, I won't be tempted to eat them!

Just a few little splashes of Easter ...

Thanks for stopping by, sweet friends!

Come party with me at these fabulous gatherings!
