expressions of easter

when i think of Easter decor - of course there are bunnies - i picked this cutie up last year.  i do like to have a bowl of chocolates handy.

for me though i've always loved eggs - these are hanging from the top of my highboy dresser and i've had them both quite a long time.

Eggs have traditionally symbolized new life, fertility and rebirth and are inextricably linked to Easter.

 

 

 

 

 

 these made of paper mache are charming.

my absolute favorites are these delightful metal eggs based on Faberge designs. 

The House of Fabergé founded in 1842 in St. Petersburg, Imperial Russia. The firm is famous for designing sumptuous jewel-encrusted Fabergé eggs for the Tsars of Russia; along with other elaborately jeweled creations.

these blue speckled wooden eggs were Rita's - i love the juxtaposition of them in this modern bowl.
