Easter Cross

I love crosses and I wanted a special cross for Easter.  H made me a large cross with some branches from our Bradford pears trees......I added some spring flowers and a few small  crosses from my collection.

We hung it on the wall right next to the front door so it will be the first thing you see as you come in.  Bunnies and nests are fun to decorate with at Easter, but for me, the cross is what it is all about...
I hung my favorite chalk board next to the cross...

these are some of the crosses that I attached to the big cross...


I have always wanted a large cross and I am very happy with the one that H made for me!

Have a blessed Easter....

  2. Hi, I found your post at The Scoop. Your cross is so beautiful. I love how you have it on your porch with the flowers and little bird houses. Great idea to put your chalk board with the Easter message on the porch to greet your guests...............

  6. Penny, that is GORGEOUS. I almost keeled over when I saw it. I had jut ssaid to my hubs YESTERDAY, "Honey, sometime I'd like you to make me a wooden cross so I could decorate it with silk flowers for Easter."

    Today I stopped by your blog, because I love all your decorating projects and I saw your cross. GORGEOUS. I LOVE it. I especially love the pink roses. SOOOOOO beautiful. Great job and thanks so much for sharing. Susan
