Easter Thrifting

I have never done much decorating for Easter, but this year, I could hardly contain myself!  I thoroughly enjoyed browsing some of the wonderful Thrift Shops in town to find just the right items.  I love to reuse things that others have discarded!  One man’s trash… well, I don’t pick up trash, but I’ve been tempted!


                                                
I got these boy and girl paper bunnies from a thrift store. 
I saw them in the front of the store and snatched them up immediately!  They are so simple; that’s why I like them so much.

I shared this picture in my previous post, but here’s a close-up of my bunnies and chicks in baskets and bowls.  The robin's egg blue shabby bowl is from a garage sale :)

This is my bunny village collection.   Nothing too too orginal but all thrift store finds, and it's one of my  daughter’s favorite decorations :)        

                                             


AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST….

              -My very favorite Spring thing of all-         
      My rusty/handmade birdcage!  My mom bought this little, old, rickety cage for my birthday recently, and I just LOVE it!!!  I hope you can see from the pictures all of the care that someone put into wiring all of these little pieces of wood together.

          The door is my favorite- or maybe it’s the rusty stand… oh, I don’t know.  But I love the way the wire is twisted and swirled to make a door latch.

Yep, it even looks great from the back!  How I wish I could say that about some photos I've had taken from that angle - Ha!
                                                                                                                                                                                          

Thanks  for taking this thrifty Easter tour with me!

Happy Tuesday,

I love your Easter thrift finds. I have nothing Eastery really. I was just wondering why the other day. My favorite thing is that bird cage! I love it and that door latch too cute.
