Simple Easter Vignette

I was planning on sharing an outdoor post today but the weather hasn't been cooperating so I've been unable to take outside pics. Because of that  I thought I would create a little Easter display with some of my cloches and other thrifty finds. I hardly have any Easter decor anymore so I wasn't sure that  I wanted to do an Easter post, but with some help from the Graphics Fairy I was able to create this simple vignette. 

I also haven't been blogging as much as I would like to. When I first started blogging I thought two posts a week would be my starting point. I haven't been able to do even that much!  Blogging can take up quite a bit of time, so I am still working on that part and trying to post more often. Spring is my favorite season in the Pacific NW because the rain finally comes to an end, most of the time anyway. I really enjoy the process of putting a project together and posting it. Of course my favorite part is sharing it and visiting other bloggers. All of you inspire me to want to create more, even if it's the simplest thing, because part of the joy is in the creating.  

The Graphics Fairy really came to my rescue on this project. I knew I wanted to use my apothecary jars and after visiting the website I came across these adorable Easter birds. I just slipped them inside my jars and started my vignette. It is definitely an eclectic mix but I decided to go with it and make it work. 

The indoor lights left a bit of a reflection on the cloches. I love the colors of the bird graphic and the Easter greeting. I only had a few wooden eggs on hand so I painted them in  pale  blue and green. 

I have a bunny couple statue that is really cute, but of course I have no idea where it is now, so I added my  outdoor stone bunny. I also added a vintage vase and my white birds.

I came across another Easter graphic of these lovely eggs. I decided to add these at the last minute and stamped an image on a card for the background. I love that pop of color.

I'm working on a basket for the front door and I'll share more pics later when I have finished with it. I really should dedicate this post to the Graphics fairy because this is yet another graphic from her website. 

Such pretty spring flowers. I'll probably be adding a bow to this basket as well. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and Easter Blessings to all!

  6. Thanks for following me Diane. I am following back. I love your vignettes and how creatively you put them together with what you had on hand! The Graphics Fairy is a life saver!

    I get what you saying about how much time blogging takes. It's the creating, taking pics, making your pics look pretty, posting, responding to comments, commenting on other blogs, linking up...phew. It makes me tired just thinking about it...LOL. I work full time, so it gets really crazy. I made use of the Easter break to write a few posts and scheduling them so that they go live over the next couple of days! Now I can relax a bit:)


  7. Hi Diane - Love your Easter vignettes. Isn't The Graphics Fairy a wonderful source of inspiration? I'm not sure how you got the "foggy" look to your pictures but I love it!

    So glad you're following on Bloglovin'. I didn't see a BL button on your sidebar so I'm following you on Google Friends Connect (have you heard that you'll need a different Reader by July 1st because Google Reader is ending?)

    So excited to find another PacNW blogger!!! It seems like most blogs I follow are in the south or southeast. I'm in Olympia, where are you? Looking forward to hearing more from you! Blessings, Patti

  8. I love your sweet vignettes. I filled a jar just like that with eggs today as I switched my Easter out for Spring. I love the graphic inside! May need to copy your idea if that's o.k. Thanks so much for sharing with SYC. Gotta love that Graphic Fairy!

  9. Thanks so much for stopping by and feel free to copy away if you like!
