Eggs, Eggs, and More Eggs!

Surprise, Surprise! I decided to say hello and post some of my Easter decorations. This year I used my antique blown glass/milk glass egg collection for a dining room table centerpiece. 


I wanted the look of eggs spilling out of the basket...






I have collected these beauties for several years now, and have several different styles. Like this chick popping out of the egg...



Over on the tea cart are two more milk glass treasures. A chick coming out of egg on sleigh small covered dish, I use it for small candies. And the embossed plate with a chick coming out of the egg.



Speaking of chicks coming out of eggs, just look at this sweet little antique bisque match holder and striker that I bought at one of our sales the other day! These chicks have cracked out of their eggs and are ready for Easter dressed in their Sunday best. Check out the parasol handle, isn't it adorable?



And the back where the matches are kept...



On the Library table in the Parlor I have my basket of marble eggs I bought at Michael's Arts and Crafts back in the 90's...



and a Teena Flanner large paper mache bunny...



Over on the parlor table (and on the pier table) are more eggs...



and some hanging in a tree. Some are plastic, some decoupage and some real handpainted eggs, even small glass chick ornaments! Look closely for the white paper quilled cross.



below the tree is my Lamb of God vignette...



John 1:29 29The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!



All of these Easter decorations are symbols of new life. The new life that we have in Christ when we accept Him as the Son of God, our Lord and Savior!
Thanks so much for visiting! Happy first day of Spring and have a blessed Easter!

I am linking up to the following blog parties, please check out all the fun!

  2. What clever way to display your Easter eggs spilling from the basket. I love the Lamb of God vignette and that what looks to be a goose egg with open doors.
    So glad you posted these pictures. I think the Lamb of God vignette is something I can put together with the girls. Happy Spring - Betsy
    I say spring but it's snowing like crazy here.

  3. WELCOME BACK .... OH, I do enjoying viewing collections ... What a lovely display of your eggs... so many different types .... Love that faberge type egg that opens with the angel in it . I’ve always been fond of easter egg trees ... of course those vintage chicks make me smile with their whimsical little poses and parasols... The lamb and cross is something the children don’t see much now-a-days... I think it’s so important to keep the theme going in their hearts... I have a lovely lamb and cross plaque over the door of our bedroom which my mother-in-law gifted to me... and I find little lambs so inspirational for Spring and the true meaning of Easter... WELL, we expecting another snow Storm ... so maybe Springtime will come bounding out by the end of the month .... ENJOY YOUR DAY !!!! ...HUGS

  9. Hi there Gina, so glad you stopped by and thank you for your sweet comment. Oh my gosh yes!--so in love with Miss Bindie already. Hope your spring is coming along well? I love this time of year, mild weather and not blazing hot like the hot Charleston summers. I even like mild rainy days as long as they dont go on and on and on...........LOL

  11. I loved seeing all your antique glass eggs. I don't see them very often around here, so I've only got one so far. Hope we hear from every once in a while.

  12. Hi! I was searching the internet to find someone who might be interested in my 4 piece Victorian bedroom suit. We have enjoyed it for 40 years but I am interested in switching it out with something else. All four pieces are matching pieces! Bed, wash stand, nightstand, and dresser with mirror. All marble tops. Walnut. 910-840-6930 if you are interested or know someone who might be! --Karen
