Welcome Spring! And An Updated Easter Egg Tree

Spring is in the air!  While we don't have a true winter in these parts, it's still very evident when winter changes over to spring.  The cherry blossoms are in full bloom, the hills are awash in neon yellow ragweed (ah-choo!), the song birds have returned and a family of bunnies has taken over our backyard.  We usually have one or two rabbits in residence all year round, but now there are five of these guys hopping, chasing and frolicking in our backyard.  I love it!  They are messy and they kill parts of our landscape, but the city girl in me eats this kind of stuff up.  

yeah he's pretty chill.  he knows that this bunny-lover won't be chasing him away.

Our home is pretty neutral, so I wanted to add some pretty Spring colors. Instead of a traditional Easter Egg tree, I decided to go vertical.  Out of the reach of little hands is always a good thing!  The tulle eggs are light and just the right size to hang on a makeshift branch mobile. The found branches are bound together with wire and the eggs are hanging from translucent thread.  The whole thing is suspended from a Command hook that I've had up since Happy Vee's bubble birthday party last year.

Are you decorating for Spring this year?
