Posse member sSn loves everything about Easter. Eggs, nests, bunnies and spring flowers bring her great joy, and she showcases them in her beautiful home. Talk about Easter collections. She still has items that she collected as a child and recently received from her mother many vintage items that gave rise to her lifelong pursuit of all things Easter. We hope you enjoy her creativity and catch some Easter spirit.
