Easter Mantel

Several years ago, we moved into the house we now live in, in the spring. It was the first house that I ever lived in with a fireplace mantel, and the first time I decorated it was for Easter. I remember sitting and looking at it quietly one night, while drinking tea, and feeling such joy and the sense that my new house was beginning to look and feel like a home. The decorations have changed over the years, but the feeling has remained.

The little houses and church were a gift from a friend a few years ago. I was admiring them and waiting for them to come on sale after Easter, and she just went out and got them for me! They inspired me to try my own hand at making glitter houses for Christmas, see how I did here and here. I love the little smiling bunny, and all the pretty pastel colours.

The houses are sitting under a pretty little Easter egg tree. My mom and sister and I made the eggs together one year, and the branches I have to hang them on have some little thorns, which always makes me think of the crown of thorns my saviour wore for me.

On the other side of the trees, are three fluffy little Easter chicks. I love their feathers, and how they tie back to my feather wreath.

I hope you and yours enjoy a blessed Easter together, and that your home reflects your joy.
