Easter Vignette & Mercury Eggs

March 04, 2016
Yesterday I put together a little mini Easter Vignette on my Kitchen table, then posted it on 


Many of you fell in love with the Mercury Eggs, so I thought I would share them here on my 

blog today.

I picked up these glorious Mercury Eggs while shopping at Pier 1 this year, if you are 

interested in getting some.


In between gardening and rummaging through my Spring craft boxes I found this rustic 


It spoke to me and said I need a makeover, and I knew I had just what it needed to become 

an Easter basket.

As you can see it was all very simple.

I tucked in a little grass, added some pink faux rosebuds, shimmery ribbon around the 

handle and added some decoupaged Easter eggs that are also from Pier 1.

I did a very simple Spring in my dining, last year, it was just before we moved and many 

things were packed away.

Another simple project that will add some Easter joy to your home is this Easter Terrarium, which I enjoyed putting together and shared a couple of years ago.

So many cheerful projects for this time of the year.

Do you have a project that you are working on?

Wishing you all a safe and happy Friday and wonderful weekend!

  9. Jemma,
    Shimmery mercury glass eggs would make finding Easter eggs easier. Yours add just the right sparkle to your Easter dining room table. I, too, have been creating little snippets of Easter and Spring here and there around the house.


  10. How cute. I can't believe Easter is almost here. I added some Easter decor on Monday but I need to get busy taking pictures. Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. I love Mercury glass. You know Jemma I used to think it was more of a wintery accent and put my Mercury glass away in Spring but lately I am enjoying it 365. I love your Pier 1 eggs and I think you did a gorgeous arrangement with the basket. Your home looks pretty and very Spring like.

  12. It all looks so pretty and Springy, Jemma, especially on that striped table runner.

  13. I have to get going on Easter preparations -- it is coming SO fast this year! And we'll be away for part of the week before. Maybe that's the perfect weekend thing today and tomorrow! Your basket is so darned cute! Makes me smile!

  14. Pier One is a very, very dangerous place ;).

    No spring decorating for me, but I can always stop by here for a visit and get my 'decorating fix'.

  20. Your basket is soooooo cute! I have t get over to Pier 1, they have the best spring/Easter items. I have to allow myself at least one new bunny to my collection, too. I'm making another Easter basket for Elsie this year. I'm going to find a basket that my daughter in law can then repurpose. I think I better get started! :)
