Nature's Easter Eggs

Easter has come around one more time again
I decided to use just a few things 
from nature to create a couple
of Easter vignettes to share
as a reminder of this
special event!

I saved this nest so I could pop it under this cloche

along with some feathers and dried "Love in a Mist"
seed pods for this vignette.
The blue eggs came from my dear friend Terri!

As we are approaching Winter where I live I
thought these browns and greys of
our Winter tones downunder

would be appropriate for this display

in our home this time of year.
The egg on the left was turned from a native Banksia pod,
the centre from timber and the one on the
right is a seed pod from a Spruce tree.

 and I picked up the dried Protea flower from our garden
which is a perfect addition to my Easter eggs
sitting on this vintage metal scoop.

The vintage wooden and rubber stamps were
a purchase from Liz's Etsy Shop
(La Croix Rosion)
a while back.

Liz has such a gorgeous shop filled with many vintage French
religious items, linen, jewellery, metal ware, laces
 and braids etc. that you
are going to find it hard to resist!

Over the Easter break I may probably continue to
work on a new piece that I've just started
with some of these new and
 vintage doilies and laces

and it will certainly be taking some
hours to complete along with some other chores
around the property here like collecting

kindling and firewood in readiness
for some natural warm 
home comfort over the coming months!

Have a wonderful Easter break - stay safe
and happy and well!


Thanks to all my wonderful followers for
your beautiful comments
and to my 
new followers also!

Much love, Suzy


  1. Oh Suzy I just love your stunning autumnal Easter display! For us Northeners is it so hard to imagine on a deep level, what it must be like to celebrate Easter (the birth of new life) when around you in nature things are slowly decaying, but what you have created here is just so lovely! Birth (the eggs) and death, with the promise of new life, in those gorgeous seedpods and other elements. Really, really beautiful!!

    Have a wonderful Easter and stay warm!!!

    By the way, just letting you know that the link to Terri is not working, I tried it twice and it just takes me to my own Blogger dashboard...

  2. I love that nest under the cloche, stunning indeed.
    Your pods are very interesting.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a wonderful week and a happy Easter holiday.

  3. Hello Dear Suzy,
    Your Easter post is so lovely! I adore your cloche, the nest, pods, feathers, eggs...all look so natural and serene. You did such a fine job creating this! Your other natural display too, is really wonderful. I love all the textures you put together, and all the lovely earthy colors.
    Oooh, I think I see your quilt! It is going to be stunning!
    Happy Easter to you too sweetie.

  4. As we are into Spring in NE US our colors are turning to the pastels but I must say that the rich, warm colors of your wonderful photos are wonderful too. I am in love with your gorgeous cloche an those pods are stunning! A very happy Easter to you and yours.

  5. Once again, as you allow me to take a stroll around your home, I gaze in wonder at the exquisite displays before me.
    The beautiful blue of the eggs tucked in the nest and then the turned seed pod and wooden egg nestled beside the dried flower head - all with their unique textures.
    Suzy, sending you Easter Wishes.

  12. Gorgeous images, your vignette in the cloche is beautiful, one of my favourites is love in a mist, they are even lovlier dried. Your seed pods are gorgeous too and your old scoop and vintage numbers little treasures. I hope you and yours have a wonderful Easter weekend x

  13. Hello my dearest Suzy, Your nature Easter Vignettes are so beautiful. I adore those amazing seed pods. I don't think I've seen a Banksia pod before.
    Happy Easter to you and Jeff, sweetie!
    Big hugs and love,

  14. Dearest Suzy- your Easter vignettes are just beautiful. I especially love the large pods that you use as eggs!!

    It seems topsy turvy to be stacking firewood at Easter time as we are just starting to throw open our windows and doors. Yesterday I mowed grass-- woo Hoo!!

  15. How different to have Easter in Autumn instead of our Spring. Your tribute to Nature and Easter is simply lovely. Those doilies and linens are bliss. Ahh yes the joys of gathering Winter firewood for warmth...know it well. Happy Easter Dear.

  16. Happy Easter, dear Suzy! As always, your vignettes are so beautiful. It doesn't matter what time of the year, you always find the perfect little treasures to celebrate the season. I love the textures of the eggs, especially the banksia one. I have a tiny little vase turned from a banksia pod, which I treasure.
    Ooooh, and all those doilies and laces, are they being turned into a quilt? Nice warm winter project? xxx

  17. I love your beautiful Easter vignettes, dear Suzy. So lovely!

    I wish you a blessed Easter and a few relaxing days.

    I love your Easter decor, especially the nest under the cloche... the first thing that struck me was the colour combination of all the elements - so gorgeous, and truly inspiring!
    I also loved your wood-pile... we are just coming to the end of ours after a long winter and cold Spring - hopefully it will hold out until the warm weather arrives.
    Hugs to you,
