Show & Tell Friday--My Easter Tree


Good Friday everyone! I thought I'd share my seasonal tree all dressed in it's Easter finery today. This tree isn't as heavy with ornies as my other themes are, but it'll get there. I have plenty of space to fill in!


As always all of my ornies are handmade by myself and a lot of online friends that I've swapped with throughout the years and I love pulling an ornie out of the box and seeing who it was made by and the wonderful reminder that they all are of such wonderful friends. Here's a few closeups of parts of the tree.....


Ruthie Rabbit there--if you scroll down a few posts I have a free pattern posted for her. I love the rabbit in the top hat, made by my friend Neeners--Janine Jensen to everyone else.


I love the chicky in the basket and the paper mache bunny--but they're not signed and sadly I have forgotten who made them--that's why it's so important to sign your work--however I too forget.


Darling little wooden angel bunny and velvet and wool egg (egg-made by me)


This cutie is painted by Phyllis Shows. I have many of Phyllis' pieces--they are always my favorites!



Carrot nose a wool applique bunny by me and a really cool paper mache bunny by Debbie Rice.


The painted chicky on the egg is another of Phyllis' wonderful creations.



The vintage sytle bunny with the paper basket of eggs is another one I made a few years ago.


This darling little dancing bunny is Torrie Sakalsky.


And last, but not least is this beautiful little wool embroidered bunny by Darlene Mariano.

I hope you enjoyed my tree today and to see the other Show & Tell Fridays just pop by Kellis House our wonderful hostess and you'll be on your way to a real treat!

Wow! Were do you keep all of these bunnies? They are cute. I like the paper mache bunny head. That is so cute. I have been toying with the all year tree but they would put in the hospital. Very neat!

I love your tree. Neat ideas!
My neighbors threw a tree (with a metal base) similar to yours out after Christmas. I wish they'd just asked me if I wanted it...would've saved me a trip to the curb!!! HA!
Maybe I'll make it into a seasonal tree like yours! Thanks for sharing! Have a great day!

Dancing Bunny is my favorite! I keep 2 pine tress up all year long since it goes with my decor. I should decorate the lighted one and do something seasonal when it gets closer to Memorial day/4th of July. Thank for sharing!
