my easter parade!

bunny from Diane!!
leading the easter parade is a sweet little bunny that  I just received from Diane (saturday finds)!  I love her creations and am soooo glad to have this bunny to lead my parade!!  Thank you so much Diane!!
All of these pics are from the shelf in my living room.  I took some down and tried to line them up like a parade, but it looked really stupid! lol!  they look best in there places on the "easter parade shelf"!  
That little chick on the box above was made for me by my swappy pal Kelly last year.. one of my favorite easter tweets!  the little bunny is a deb canham bunny. I used to collect her things back a few years ago, when there was a bear store in amherst.  now there is no more bear store!  so sad! probably best for my pocket book though!!
This little bunny (that looks more like a dog then a bunny! ) drives the easter train, pulling his little chickie twin friends along behind him!  I made them a few years ago and am always happy to see them when its time to get out the easter stuff!
and they are followed up by a another deb canham piece,  (the bunny) and  little stieff lambie pie!
another deb canham bunny and also the sweetest pink bunny made by my friend Lori Ventrimiglia (who I met on line and then in person the last time I went to florida) a very talented bear (and bunny) maker!
Every easter parade should have sweet little lambs in it dont you think?
And of course lots of bunnys and chicks!!
These shelves are packed full of easter sweetness! 
Decorating has become an obsession for me.  I cant tell you how many places I go just to see if they have anything I think I have to have!  but I've been very good this year, and I dont think I've bought anything eastery anywhere!  (I could be fooling myself and may have forgotten something, but I dont think so.. )

There is a yarn wreath I keep thinking about at Target, but the colors really arent the colors I want, so Ive been able to resist it.  LOL!  I could make my own I suppose..   maybe...
OK girlie pies.. thats it for now.  I have so many things I could show you but cant do it all in one day.   
I'm not liking the time change this morning.  I woke up at 7:30!!!  thats two and a half hours later then I want to get up!  but at least it will stay lighter later.  
have a fun sunday!
hope you enjoyed my little easter peeps "parade"

Very, very sweet, Viv! Oh yes, Easter parades should have lots of lambs!

Once again, I'll be living through blog posts for my holiday decor! I can only focus on non holiday decorating right now although my decorating does sort of look like a birthday party! ♥

I just saw that yarn wreath too and was tempted. Then I saw one made of green yarn with daisies pinned to it on Pinterest and decided to try and make my own instead! You have a lovely collection...I know your grandkids must marvel at it all....there will come a day when they will start asking for bits of it you know ;)

I love your sweet Easter parade, Viv. Deb Canham's creations have a very distinctive look, don't they? I love the whimsical look of them. You have crafted, or received, or bought some really great pieces- xo Diana

Who doesn't love a parade...especially one as sweet as an easter parade!!! Darling viv. I'm always so happy to see all your sweet characters on display. Despite a gloomy gray day, your pastel parade makes me think of spring.

Easter hugs.

Viv it always makes me smile over here...I imagine I wouldn't mind a ride in that sweet parade. Channelling my inner Judy Garland and paring it with a sweet parasol. Smiles..Renee

Loved your parade, Viv! I was wishing I had an Easter flag to wave as it was passing by. Your figures are all so adorable...I love the ones you make the best! Thanks for sharing your awesome collection!

Erica of Golden Egg Vintage said...

Your cast of characters is fantastic! Each one cuter than the last! I've been sooo tempted by that darn wreath and the yarn wrapped Easter tree at Target! I'm determined to resist!

Chenille Cottage said...

After seeing your many darling little Easter creations...I'd say it's time to put my Easter Bonnet on! Oh, Viv! What a delight! I had so much fun taking in all the pretty details...ribbons, flowers, sparklys, pinks, blues, buttons and bows! What an absolute delight!
Have a happy week and don't let this goofy ole daylight savings time get to you!
Bunny hugzzzzz,
Carolynn xoxo

I love your Easter parade....that little bear in the pink bunny suit is adorable! I can't wait to see what else you have to show. And I'm not to happy with the spring ahead deal either...I think they should change it to spring back...I hate losing an hour..
Have a great week :)

CatieAn said...

oh so sweet all of it----they look like they are all having so much fun. I forgot to bring up my easter stuff before my foot surgery and tomorrow hubby is off so promised to bring it all up. Now that I am getting around with a lot less pain I think I can start slowing decorating for easter---I have to get a move on!!
