old and NEW Easter decor

Whew!  I’m FINALLY done entertaining for a while!  We have had soooooo many ‘events’ around here lately! I’m kind of exhausted!!! :o)  However I did have a bit of energy to dig out the Easter decor over the weekend.  (None too soon, since Easter comes pretty early this year!)  I took a few pics: the ‘old’ decor is my fabric covered styrofoam easter eggs.  I’ve loved them for years…and the best part is: I didn’t make them!  My lovely Mother-in-law made them and gave them to us YEARS ago.    I poked around to see if there were any tutorials that I could share in case you’re interested in making some.   These are pretty close, but I think my MIL actually used a butter knife and tucked the fabric into the groove then finished off with embellishments.

My NEW decor this year is this VERY SIMPLE glass jar filled with eggs…finished off with  burlap and ribbon.  Truth be told:  I got these eggs for FREE.  You know when  you buy a washing machine at the local appliance store and they give you a “rebate” of $30-$40 to get to you come back into their store?….but the store really doesn’t have anything at all for that price?  (Well they have a very few things.  These eggs for example).  So that’s how I got them for ‘free’.
