Can I Live Without These?!

I was chatting with hubs this afternoon and was wondering out loud at one point: can I live without some of this stuff? The answer is obviously "yes", but then again would I want to pass it up and never see it again? Nuuuuuuu, so I may be buying some of this stuff soon. Not a lot just a thing or two.

Pink eggs? Yep!

Bunnies and chicks togetherrrrRRRrrrrr!!! My favorites......uh hmmmm, and which my ebay group will understand a little bit better in the next month or so. *Wink*

Anybody paint candles like this???? Let me know and you've got a sale, chickee....I seriously want some polka dot candles.

Squeeeeeeeeeeeal, is this not gorgeous for those packets of Equal????

Okay, let's get real about these plates. I don't know about most of you but if I put my food on a plate like this my tablecloth would be a disaster even more so than usual. It usually ends up on the cloth without any holes in the plate or even better yet, my chest! So how in the world do you put food on there without it dripping through. I'll pass on these plates. Not practical for a slob........ME.

I'm getting ideas for a cute gift here, little cherubs. *Wink*


I don't know about where you live but if this was sitting on most porches it wouldn't be there for long. It's so cute but I'd be afraid the kids in the neighborhood would wanna steal it......and I live in a GOOD neighborhood!

Gorgeous planters.

These are what I'm giving serious consideration to buying. How could I NOT buy pink beads for a jar–even for just eye candy?!

These have given me another idea for gifts. I don't know if I'll ever get to it though. Too much else going on in this chick's life, ya know........*Sigh*............


  1. Ohhh these are all so preetttyyyy and so perfect for Spring!!! I love those polka candles too!!!
    Glad to see that you are doing better after your kidney stone.
    I have been trying to eat better also but I was BAD this morning!!!

  2. Ohhhhhh, but those plates SO match Gollum's cakestand!!!!!!

  3. Morning, Connieness! I'll take two of each of those, please! I love it all and especially those last olden looking dishes!
    I'm glad too you're feeling better and looking at Mr. Precious' legs lol
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. LUV all the great spring things! I have an idea for the polka dots on the candles...use the eraser end of a pencil, dip it in a little craft paint and dot just may work

  5. i really like the little ornaments in the last pic...they look like cookies!

  6. Beautiful sharing of lovely Easter goodies. Thank you so much.

  7. Cute stuff!!! I think I like decorating for Easter more then Christmas - such pretty, girly colors - and bunnies :)

  8. Hi Connie,

    Happy New year, a little late!
    Your pictures make me think of Spring. Very cheery.

    Hope all is well.


  9. Hi Connie,
    I think you can make your own polka dot candles. Just take the end of a pencil, the eraser end, dip in paint and dot on candle. I have done this on cards and small items and think it would work on candles:) Just practice and let me know if it works for you. No mail today....I'm on the watch!!!

  10. Hi again, I see some one already told you about the erasers...guess I should read the comments before I write mine...Oh well...Have Fun.

  11. Silly Connie...those "lace" plates are for dieters!!! You only put a few spoonsful in the leakage!! LOL!!!

  12. Oh yes Connie I can see why you would want it all... There wasn't one thing I didn't love... especially the little Equal holder... LOVED them...


  13. Live without them, sure, but would you want to? Sometimes I think cleaning house would be easier had I lived in a dugout somewhere along the plains. Fluff is fine, otherwise you might as well pack up for the prarie.

    Many apologies for yesterday. Lines were crossed and things weren't clear that YOU wanted to give the announcement.


  14. Hi Connie :)

    I'm so sorry I missed your giveaway! I was over at the new house all weekend and missed it.

    You found so many cute things for spring! I love those pink eggs :)


  15. Love these....may have to try the polka dot candles. Everything is just eye candy!

  16. Hi Connie, wow I learned something new about you today! I did not know you liked Easter things! I love them too and we must have gotten the same mail order catalogs. I have alot of the same things bookmarked. I keep asking myself do I really need this? No but I really want it especially the Bethany Lowee bowl. So many pretty things this season. I love your post on couches and your birdhouse is so pretty!
    Love you, Shirl

  17. funny I was thinking about spring...I wonder why????

  18. Hi Connie, what an inspiration your post is. I love the polka dot candles and also the beads in the hurricane with candles. The plates are gorgeous and delicate. WOW have to be careful dining on those. LOL!!

    Thank you for stopping by last night. My blog had a glitch and was distored. I had to delete it and start over so I was not able to publish your comment. So sorry about that, but I finally got it fixed this morning.

    Have a great week. Sounds like you are feeling good. So glad!
    hugs, Celestina Marie
