I Can't Make Up My Mind-Easter Two WAys

I wanted to do a little Easter vignette for the kitchen, but I really don't have a lot of Easter decor and I just wanted to use what I had,    Birds, eggs, a Bunny and a Lamb, that will work.  A straw placemat for the base and keep the topiary.

 I pass this little guy off as a calf sometimes, but he is really a precious lamb.  Perfect for Easter and he looks fabulous in my cloche.

 My little mamma bunny is definitely all dressed up in her finest with touches of lace, so she is ready to party.

 These little birdies found  alot of pretty eggs, so they filled their little birdbath with them.

Simple little vignette, this will do.

Then I got to looking around and I found this precious Bunny couple that I had forgotten about.  

Mr. and Mrs. Bunny are totally dressed in their very finest.  She has roses on her hat, pretty tulips in her arms and a basket full of eggs.  He has on his Sunday vest, a nice kerchief around his neck plus a lot of eggs too.  He even has a carrot in his pocket for a snack.

They work perfectly in my vignette.

Same little lacy bunny,

 and the same little birdbath with eggs.

 Just a little more of an Easter vignette.

So, what do you think, do you change things before they even hardly get photographed?

  1. Good morning, Marty! Yes...I change things CONSTANTLY!!! I have even gone so far as to photograph everything, start the editing process, decide I would like it a different way and have to re-photograph just about everything!!! That's crazy, but hey...we're talkin' about me! :-) I like your Mr. & Mrs. Bunny in the mix. They give the vignette a totally Easter vibe. Mr. Bunny looks like he's all about business, and Mrs. Bunny is certainly a Southern belle! :-) Have a safe and Happy St. Patrick's Day weekend!

  2. Hi Marty, I love this vignette. The eggs are really pretty in that pedestal bowl and the bunnies are so charming.


  3. I think your vignette is absolutely adorable! I always enjoy your cloches and that little birdbath is so precious with the colored eggs. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Sometimes I even change things as I am photographing them! Our home is ever changing. I love your vignette Marty....esp the lamb! Hugs, Penny

  5. OH YEs, yes Marty! I love both vignettes though, keep 'em coming!

  6. I do that too ^Penny^ - You take a photo and go... NOPE! Switcho changeo ;) I am sure whatever you decide it will be perfect Marty. As long as it makes you smile, it's all good!

  7. Your vignette is just great! Love your style!

  8. I love the Mr. & Mrs. Bunny's, with the birds on the bird bath protecting their eggs.

  9. I am so with Penny & Shannon...I change things as I am photographing them, or just walk by. Your vignettes always look amazing. Such attention to detail!

    Looks beautiful!

  10. I do the same thing! I'll have my photos taken, then have to start over because I add something, or take it away. That's the fun part, I think. Your vignette is lovely. Beautiful combination of pretties.

  11. I love the bird bath pedestal. It's different. Both versions are pretty!

  12. Very nice! I love it!


  13. Well I love both of the vignettes. The lamb is so precious but, I think Mr. And Mrs. Bunny say Easter time to me a bit more. Thank you for sharing at TTF. Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  14. It's a "just right" vignette for me, Marty! I love your bunny couple!
