Pink Saturday

Hello bloggerettes and welcome to Pink Saturday with Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound-
http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/


I finally finished decorating my mantel for Easter. It's not eggs-actly what I had in mind but it will have to do. Originally I had planned on using a pink flower pot but I can't for the life of me, find it. So the cream pots will have to do!

When last I shared this with you, I had only half of it decorated. I was hoping to find more chicks the same size as the one on my mantel but no one in town had them. So, he is playing all by himself with his friendly neighborhood bunnies. They are having fun regardless and they're all eggs-cited about Easter on the way!

So, here's my mantel for Easter; hope you like it! It was very difficult getting a shot without me in the photo too and we couldn't have that!

I normally decorate my mantel for Easter more formally but this year, I decided on a more whimsical one.

There are five pink- nosed and playful brown and white bunnies hopping about and one little chick has shown up to play hide and seek with them.

Pink Easter grass and eggs give the mantel a more festive look.


My bunnies were having such a wonderful time that they upset a potted rose.


And these two bunnies have upset a pot of eggs while Mr. Peeps looks on in surprise.


Sorry, it's not closer up but I didn't want me in the reflection of the mirror.


When I was taking pictures of the mantel, this cute little fellow showed up in my back yard so I took his picture too. It's not really clear because I took it from inside the house through the kitchen window. He was quite content just sitting there munching grass.

As you can see, he is basically the same colour as my bunnies. I am glad I got the pictures when I did because something scared him and off he hopped into the woods.

I'm also joining Sherry @ Home Sweet Home party. ~ http://thecharmofhome.blogspot.com/

If you enjoy flowers; pansies in particular, I hope you will take a moment to visit this new blogger I just 'met'. She has a gorgeous blog! Michelle @ Shabby Delights  ~ http://shabbyprimdelights.blogspot.com/ 

Well, those are my offerings for this week. Please be sure to visit the ladies hostessing these parties. I hope you have a safe and happy weekend and I invite you all to join me next week for my Easter Tea Party.

Hi Sandi! Love your mantle. You should have that little chick sitting next to an open egg like he was just hatched! Love your bunnies, inside and out. Love the pink grass, too.
It's hard when you have a mirror in the background to get shots without you in it! LOL
Hugs- tete

Dear Sandi ~ What a darling Easter mantel you've put together! Those bunnies and wee chick look like they're having the time of their life, playing amongst all the Easter eggs! Your outdoor bunny is adorable too and he looks domestic, not like the 'wild' rabbits we have around here! Happy (Early) Pink Saturday! xox

I enjoyed seeing your bunnies and decorations. They set the mood for me to look for my decorations. Apparently mine are packed away after the remodel to the house and the long await for dining room furniture.

Happy Pink Saturday Sandi Sweetie...
What a precious share today. I love the completion of your mantel.

These rabbits look so gorgeous. I love the pot and the watering bucket as well. Makes me think of Mr. MacGregor and Peter Cottontail as they played and scurried about his garden. Oh it is absolutely breathtaking. I do SO love it.

Your little chick, delightful. He can be moved around each day, as he plays about. What fun you can have with this vignette sweetie.

Thank you for sharing today. I SO enjoyed myself. Hope you have a beautiful weekend. Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Your Easter mantel is all decorated for Easter. Glad you were able to get a shot of the bunny before he went off. I don't see many bunnies here and around. Pink is just the right colour, soft, soothing and just pink, thanks for sharing. Please check out our new "all about" PEI blog at peiblog.ca

How perfect, Sandi. You even have a bit of blue!

Happy Easter, my blogging buddy!

Johanna said...

Hello Sandi,
your mantel decoration is so sweet. And I guess, this was the true real Easterbunny, you saw in your yard. It has a very different color to the other bunnies.
Greetings, Johanna

Donna said...

Hi Sandi, What a sweet Easter tea post. :o) I love the real bunny in it. I had a pet named Satin Aussy. He was a red satin Australian breed.

Frankly, I love the yellow tulips. Yellow has become my new favorite color.

That white lace tea cup really is my favorite...and I can't decide if hubby chose candy or cake. I think my hubby would choose the candy. Hmm...

Easter is such a special time--the most important one for us as believers. We will be attending a passover seder that our pastor friend hosts every year. I'm so looking forward to it!

Lovely post!
