Easter Snippets

I like the word "snippet".  It means a small piece or thing.  I love things!  Today I thought I would share a few Easter snippets with you.  This Easter tree sits in a milk glass hobnail vase not far from where I am writing to you.  Hanging from its limbs are my boys' first Easter eggs which have their names and the year of their first Easter. Sweet memories! The frame holds a picture of my mom and her older sister, my Aunt Ginny, sitting side by side in their spring attire.  Mom's arm is a blur, so she must have been trying to escape while her sister is holding on tight!
My mantel is simply adorned with a cross, spring flowers, and candles.  I display crosses throughout our home all year.  They are a constant reminder of the sacrifice that was made for you and for me.
On the piano is a favorite of any little ones who gather around our home.  It is a happy, bunny village.  Everyone is ready for the big day at Easter Town!
My husband loves trains, so this is for him...
I am a big fan of Aunt Ruthie at Sugar Pie Farmhouse.  One year she had an Easter display consisting of a pair of very ladylike gloves, the kind all women used to wear to church.  Alongside the gloves perched a  pretty Easter hat.  I loved the display and kept the idea in my head.  I picked up this pair while antique shopping in Mobile, AL.  To add to this grouping, I have a Bible awarded to my mother on July 15, 1951 at a church function.  The Bible is open to the story of the crucifixion and a youth revival order of service from Chattahoochee, FL is placed to the side.  My mother played the piano at this and many revivals at her church.  I love the symbolism of each item.  
This little piece has been my favorite for many years.  I can't remember where I purchased it or how much it cost.  I only know that I love it. This bunny and his little chick friend are nestled among my milk glass. 
 This sign hangs on a door welcoming all to Still Woods Farmhouse. I picked this up at a boutique for $5.00!
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."  I am so thankful for God's eternal love. 
We are off to the River Road country of Louisiana to visit a beautiful sugar baron's plantation and eat at a local restaurant on River Road.  I will share some of today's adventures with you later!  Until then, have a Terrific Tuesday!
Blessings from Still Woods Farmhouse
