Easter Basket

Where did the Bunny used to leave your basket?

Was it at the doorstep? The dining room table? The foot of your bed?

What if somebunny left you a basket like this?

Full of laces and a bit of pretty china.

Eggs in your favorite color and nothing you have to refuse or feel guilty about.

You could even use the peat pots!

I like a basket I can use year round, and for every special occasion.

Can flowers really make you happier than bundles of victorian lace? (Maybe.) But lace lasts longer.

Of all the eggs I've dyed these are still my favorite hues.

Does this pattern mimic lace? Or chicken wire?

How many egg shapes can you find?

When I was finished snapping my basket I realized some cutting was required. But then I thought "nature is profuse."
 Especially in spring. So let it be.

Wishing you the bounties of the Season!
Ciao! for now!


I'm linking to the following lovely blogs!

  1. what a pretty basket..mine did not look like that! Mine was left on the big console tv!

  2. Your basket looks like one that I have, love how you have it displayed. I may just buy brown eggs this year and mix them with white ones for Easter. Have a great day. HUGS MARY

  3. A perfect Easter display.You are so clever,it is a joy to see your photos.

  4. Oooh, I would love to get a basket like that for Easter! Gorgeous lace and wonderful organic feel to it.

  5. This is just awesome!! What a clever idea. The color and textile palatte is perfect.

  6. Jacqueline, I've never, ever, seen a more beautiful Easter Basket. Should you lust after an Easter basket? Probably not, but it would be easy to do with this one...I'm loving your blog! pat

  7. Love the basket and all that's in it... but I really love that window shot! :)

  8. Oh that's so gorgeous, I would adore the Easter bunny if he brought me such a pretty gift!!! Also, just a thought, I have some lace similar to the beautiful 'Victorian' one in your basket and it dates from the early 1700's could yours be from the same period I wonder?

  9. Woooee! Yes, that is my kind of Easter basket.
    My very earliest memory is of an Easter basket...not mine but my brother's who I shared a room with. I was in a crib and couldn't get to the pretty basket.

  10. Oh, I would love it if the Easter bunny brought me a basket like this. Those are real treasures in that basket.

  11. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the basket in such serene colours. I would pick the lace, it definitely lasts longer. No chocolate for me. I want the Easter Bunny to leave me one of these baskets :-)

  12. Jacqueline-thx for visiting so i could discover your beautiful blog! your photography and objects are such gorgeous eye candy, and i can feel my blood pressure dropping...let's keep in touch.


  13. If somebunny left me that sweet basket, I think I would be a happy camper! It's so lovely, you have inspired me to go and make one for our home.
    Cheers, Andrea

  14. Oh how beautiful. I love the vintage look. Your basket of goodies is wonderful.

  15. Jacqueline, I'd be thrilled if a bunny left me a basket filled with these goodies. Like you, I find the eggs in natural splendor are sheer delight just as is. Beautiful photos as always! ~ Sarah

  16. such a pretty basket ~ the lace doiley is exceptional. Thank you for these lovely images.(-:

  17. So pretty! And I think the pattern on the platter definitely mimics lace. You've inspired a dining room display for me. I won't be copying exactly, but if you don't mind, I think I'll use the peat pot idea for some eggs.

  18. delightful post about all the things that make spring a beautiful time of year, love that photo of the light casting shadows through the lace

  19. Now this is a Big Grrrrl Easter Basket I'd LOVE to find on Easter Morning... wonder if I could drop hints to the G-Kids and The Man by leaving photos of something like this laying around in the most conspicuous of places? *winks*
