Vintage Easter Vignette

It is Easter weekend and I have been creating, decorating and leafing through

cookbooks for a perfect lemon dessert, I think I have found one and if it turns 

out as good as it looks, I will be sharing it next week.

But for now, it is a simple Vintage Easter Vignette.

A few beloved treasures from daughters and my Mother make this vignette

very special to me.

This little brass birdcage is 33 years old, my Mother gave it to me when she 

came to visit me in Hawaii. 

The Grandchildren love it, there is a tiny bird inside sitting on a swing

their little fingers adeptly and nimbly push the swing.

I love watching their angelic faces as they giggle with pure delight.

These two wooden bunny nutcrackers keep checking their time pieces to see

if Easter has arrived yet. 

They are very anxious to deliver Easter baskets...

And of course this Easter Bunny is named Early-years ago we had a storybook

about a bunny who waited for the most treasured egg of Easter, and it was


Since this was a favorite story of my youngest daughter she gave me this

wooden vintage bunny holding the perfect treasured egg of Easter.

I am still trying to find that book...

Happy Easter!

With love~


Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.


  1. How beautiful! I love that sweet wooden bunny! Have a blessed weekend my friend! Hugs, Diane

  2. Jemma,
    Bunny nutcrackers, hahaha, how cute. The girls go to the Nutcracker every year, so I really liked these bunnies. The brass bird cage is such a treasure that your mother gave you many years ago. I love vintage books too. I just saw a scratch and sniff bunny book that I used to read to the kids when they were little. I had to buy it for Jess, as she teaches elementary school now. Your little Easter space looks wonderful, Jemma.

    What a lovely vignette!! I actually have Bunny Nutcrackers too but did not get much out for Easter this year because of lack of time so they are still packed away up in the attic.

    Happy Easter!!
