My Rustic Box Dressed for Easter

You knew this one was coming! I have filled my favorite shabby box with Easter goodies just in time for the approaching arrival of the Easter bunny!

page You may remember that I have been decorating it for each season since I found it at Joss and Main…a fun and versatile centerpiece!

085 At the heart of it all…this wonderful coco fiber bunny! Isn’t he adorable? I found him at Tuesday Morning for only $6.00! Gotta love those big soulful eyes! Behind him…my cabbage (we’re going to call it lettuce for Easter, though) Bordallo plate and a cute German Easter egg depicting more bunnies.

010 And since I have a thing for little animals wearing clothes, I added more of those German Easter eggs…cute, huh? I also found them at Tuesday Morning at $2.00 each. Love the one with the little bird!

022 A bunch of cute carrots form Pier One fill the lead crystal urn. I tried to use more neutral colors and lots of textures this time. 

025 I had to add another egg and my sweet little bunny and chick salt and pepper…a gift from my sister several years ago.

052 And just in case you are wondering what our handsome co-host is doing, it seems he is too busy grooming to pose this morning. It’s almost time for the neighbor’s cat to peek in the back door for her regular visit!

So there you have it…my favorite little shabby box all dressed for Easter! What do you think?

  3. Deb I think you have given new meaning to the,"wooden box!" It might become a decorators necessity to have in their design arsenal! Love all the different looks and I am glad you show them all in the post, so fun to see the transformations. Love your little bunny-boy! Kathysue

  4. I so enjoy seeing how your little box changes with the seasons. Every time you come up with something new and fabulous. I think I am going to have to keep an eye out for something similar to add a little fun to my kitchen table. Thanks for sharing, I always love seeing what you come up with! Have a wonderful weekend.

  14. I love your Easter box, but what I really love is that you showed it done for so many different holidays. I think that was the most fun. I really liked seeing how you change it up for different seasons. Great ideas, and good point, that you can reuse things and don't have to start from scratch each time.

  15. First, I must say hello to Baby Kitty. You know I am besotted with him.
    The shabby box is a real treasure. It looks good in every shot, but thinking spring right now, I have to love it for Easter!

  16. You amaze me with all the great decorating ideas you come up with for your box, Debbie! I feel like I say the same thing each time ~ I'm going to start copying and pasting my comments on these posts! : ) I love, love, love this look. I'm sure the fact that I'm partial to bunnies is part of that, but I think you've inspired me to get my Easter stuff and play around with my tote. While I do love mine red, I'm thinking I may have to give it a coat of Heirloom White so I can better use it throughout the year.

  18. Hi Debbie, I love your shabby Easter Box. This is one box that has served you well. I love the seasonal mosaic. Mr. Bunny, he looks right at home with the green cabbage plate, hope he doesn't take a bite! Those are the cutest carrots, and I love them in the urn. I love It! Happy Spring and Easter Debbie.

  26. Every time you decorate that box I think its the Best and then dang if you dont do one I like ever more..

    I have bunnies somewhere out in the storage bins in the building. I have some scrap wood too:) maybe I could build myself a box, paint it and get the kid next door to beat it up a little for me and Viola- I's have one similar to yours.

    I love visiting here. It always makes me smile.

  63. I love boxes. This is your vignette box! This will probably get all of us looking for a perfect wooden box to do something wonderful. Your vignette is wonderful and beautiful. Wow so many ideas. But you always have beautiful ideas. It's kind of like a cloche...how many ideas can you get decorating a cloche! Hahaha...
    Great post.
    Blessings,
    Debbie
