Oh Easter Tree!

The Easter Tree is all decorated!

Thank you so much, Glitterinas, for stopping by today!

I hope you see something that makes you smile,
or inspires you!

My little tree that I use each year at Easter
 sits on a table somewhere 
in the living room or dining room.

Before I bought this tree, I used a fallen branch that 
I would find in the yard.

I would begin looking sometimes as early as February.....
just ask my sweet's not always easy
to find just the right branch 
to serve as 
something as special as our family's
Easter tree!

These days if I happen upon a wonderful branch.....
one with just the right height....
one with just enough little branches....
it becomes our outdoor Easter tree!

Well, I strayed from the main topic, didn't I?

The Easter Tree is all decorated!

Let me show you.....

It doesn't usually take me very long to 
get this seasonal lovely ready.

What takes the longest is 
the sentimental journey I take
as each 
ornament comes out of it's container or wrapper.

Some were gifts from friends who told me 
I'm the only person they knew who 
had an Easter tree.

Like this one.....
from Sheila....

or this one from Mary Jane.....

My Mom was always amused that I decorated 
a branch each year and called it 
an Easter tree!

Here are some items she gave me.....
there are a dozen of these little paper mache eggs.

These little wooden cuties are part of a
boxed set that has many, many pieces.

They have such wonderful, little details.

This fuzzy, clip on bunny is rather old.....
she was on my Easter basket one year when I was
about 10 years old.

When I look closely.....
I think she has aged better than I have!

She gets packed up with these eggs 
Mom, Sissy and I decorated 
when I was very young.

Some ornaments I have bought over the years.....

......and one ornament I purchased under the threat of 

"You are NOT leaving this store until you 
buy that ornament!"

Thank you, Jan!

I love it every year when I unpack it......'s so pretty!

Well, Glitterinas, there you have  
our family Easter Tree
2016 Edition.

I love that you take time to let me share 
pictures and thoughts with you!

I would love for you to share 
special Easter decorations you use in your home!

Hugs and glitter,
