A set of tiny Easter ornaments


from the Cancer Society Discovery Shop...........

A sweet little childs teaset......



from a local thrift store....

and not a crack or chip anywhere!











A cutie little bunny~chick from last year..........

with Jelly Beans.......

no idea

A very special little bunny I made for my Mom perhaps 10 years ago.....











Two sweetest little bunnies

A pretty Ballerina Bunny I bought from eBay last year........

Easter Tablecloth


which I have had for over 20 years now!









And, a cute, cute, cute Chicky with a wagon


which sits atop the dining table.....

which is one of my recent


treasures, also from


Amy..........


Ah, I could go on forever.......

delightful blogs

Easter Parade...

A give-away as well,

Today I share with you this vignette of Love.......... it is out my front window..... If you look closely you can see the beautiful blue sky behind the sweet white Spring blossoms on my tree.....which is behind the gorgeous faux stained glass which my dear Love created for me..... screened by a set of glorious lace curtains which evoke memories of my precious Grandma's house....... and all are illuminated with the Light of God's Love......
Today, I challenge you to look beyond..... to take the time to look at something simple which you may see every day, but perhaps just rush by in the hurry of day to day life....... and just look into it, look beyond it, look at it in layers.... through the eyes of Love....... I would love to hear and/or see what you find............
Lord, I pray that I never be so busy as to miss the signs of love......

Realize that true happiness lies within you.
Waste no time and effort
searching for peace
and contentment
and joy
in the world outside.
Remember that there is no happiness
in having
or in getting,
but only in giving.
Reach out.
Share.
Smile.
Hug.
Happiness is a perfume
you cannot pour on others
without getting a few drops on yourself.

*A Little Bunny~Love*


Well...... what a beautiful day here!! Simply gorgeous outside........ and, here on my blog..... so many sweet, lovely ladies stopping by! I just LOVE it!
For those who asked.......... yes, that is lil 'ol me on the banner photo~ I was just 4 yrs old....... I'll have to find more pics to share~ somewhere there is one with my Easter Bonnet! Easter was perhaps my favorite holiday as a child....... Gramma usually made my sister and I matching dresses. I remember one year she made us matching blue gingham dresses, and made my brother a shirt from it as well, and we were in a fashion show..... except that I got scared, and would not go up on stage~ poor Gramma. But, I know she loved me anyway....
Happy Day to everyone! See you soon!
