Easter Pretties

Let's talk, or should I say, look at easter beauties today. I love easter because there are so many beautiful things to look at during this holiday. Okay okay, I'm not talking about the candy, chicks! I'm talking about the bunnies, roses, eggs, jelly beans........okay, so I am talking about candy–"eye candy"!! I love eye candy almost as much as I love the real stuff. I love the smiles it brings to the little munchkins and the pretty new dresses some people wear. I love the feeling of happiness it brings to us in our hearts. But mostly I love it because of the resurrection of our Savior and the hope that springs up with it.

Aren't these vases of beautiful flowers awesome? Faux. Yep, faux!! I was going to buy them but I have no place for any more flowers in this house. Yikes.........

I was also going to buy this geranium wreath but it wouldn't fit on the door with the storm door we have on there for security. It is just too bushy to be in there.

And I don't need another rug according to the Love Bunny. I have boxes up in the garage attic full of beautiful throw rugs and a persian carpet rolled up somewhere along with several 6x9' carpets rolled up. One more might just push hubs over the edge. ;-) But isn't this gorgeous?!

A magical easter bunny fairy.

Sigh...................... nope, no room for it either.

Cute but again no room in this house.

I hate deviled eggs but I'd be willing to fill it with truffles or some such things if I bought it. *Wink*

Egg shaped plates! How cute is that?!

Okay, now someone on etsy or ebay will come up with something like this I'm sure. Little felt easter bunny place mats.

I gave serious consideration to this wreath for the front door but hubs said he didn't think it would fit between the door and security/storm door either.

I'll show you more in a day or two plus I'll show you what I've decided on for the front door.

Ooooh, and for those who have emailed me about the bout with passing kidney stones, thank you all from the bottom of this ol' heart. I truly appreciate your kind comments, emails and thoughts. I'm back to feeling like my usual self and chompin' at th' bit to get some things done. My next project is to do a verrrrry special treat for my valentine swap put on by Miss Dolly. It will appear here first and I promise you that you will be delighted to see it.

I also am going to have a giveaway for my 500th post, chicks!!! Squeeeeeeeal, just you wait till you see what I'm giving away. You won't be able to contain the glee when you do. Keep watching for it within the week. I am a bit behind but that's to be expected with what these past 2 weeks have been like.


  1. Good morning Connie! What beautiful spring things, I love the colors of spring and I much prefer dreaming about it to looking out the window at the ice and snow:>) Have a great day!

  2. What pretty Easter goodies!!! I'm running out of space too, but I guess that means I need to weed out some old to make room for some new!!!

    So glad you are feeling better! Can't wait to see what's up your little sleeve!!!!

  3. I am so glad you are feeling better! Love those spring things!

  4. See what happens I'm gone for awhile and you pass a kidney stone!
    I'm glad to here that your feeling much better. OH~~ the rug I'm a rug girl myself that one is just to sweet. I may go check it out.
    Take care of yourself, I hope to be back in blog world again.
    yes indeed that was such a big deal for me to learn how to do the layout thing . Now I know I still have a bit of a brain, I was worried there for awhile.

  5. Be still my heart. The vases and wreaths are gorgeous. The Easter displays give me hope...that warm weather will be on it's way. -30 this morning, but from here the temp is suppose to go up!

  6. My Sweet Pea,

    I have been away for a few days and it seems like forever.

    I just love Easter and Spring too. I am having a ball making pretty spring goodies. I just love the pics of all the springy stuff. Those rugs, wreaths, bunnies, and those egg plates with bunnies on them 2DIE4.

    Just love it all! I'm glad you are feeling better. I can't wait to see what you're getting ready to give for your contest.

  13. Hi connie
    You are coming up to 500 posts!! yikes. Congratulations are coming up in order then.

    I LOVE your comment about Easter. Easter because I'm into bunnies is a wonderful month. That is the time one could scoop up wonderful bunny things. I could hardly stand looking at these they are soooo pretty. Very tempting eye candy.

    Thank you for a lovely post

  14. First thank you because now I am so looking forward to Easter. It is my favorite family meal to do.
    And a big thank you for sharing that you have a bunch of rugs stashed away. I always thought I was the only one. I can't bear to part with them and have repurposed a few to a new room from time to time.
