As usual the first stop for Easter decor was Goodwill. I picked up some fabulously tacky gold ceramic 1980's eggs, a primitively carved wooden bunny, and on old jug. The moonshine jug, as I refer to it, was an awesome score at 2.99.
How funny that weeks after my mantle scape we made a last minute decision to visit a farm for Easter festivities. No fancy bunny in a proper Easter bonnet here! This bunny came out of his tin roof cabin to greet us. He even had an outhouse, the door roughly carved with a crescent moon. I think he may have been the previous owner of the old moonshine bottle. I noticed the empty one in the background. ;)
Ahh, but those tacky gold eggs did inspire our art lesson. (I teach a free art class for a small group of homeschoolers.) We studied a bit of Russian history and Faberge' and his wonderful eggs. Then, the kids recreated their own with gold paint and scrap embellishments. The picture above is of just a few of the ones that were made.
Hope you all had a great week!
