Happy Spring & Easter Blessings...
Happy Spring to each of you. Even though Mother Nature isn't done with Winter we are at least enjoying the wonderful rebirth of trees and plants and blossoming bulbs. The Sun shines even though the thermometer is telling us it is very cold and the chill bites into our souls. We know life is being renewed by Spring. My little vignette in honor of things I love. Yes, you see my Woodland Nest created by Miss Vicki of Two Bags Full. My wonderful husband, Mr. C, surprised me with it several years ago and it is one of my favorite things.
I love listening to the birds outdoors singing. I love to watch them flittering about from tree to tree.
These are simply joyful reminders of my love of Mother Nature's beautiful birds.
Now as we celebrate Easter I am enjoying my small treasures I collect from year to year. I keep my décor simple and in one spot so as not to overwhelm Mr. C with holiday overload. Each year as I gather my treasures I am reminded of each piece and how it came to be in my collection.
Here in the forefront of the picture, laying on the cloth, are some very special eggs. (Click on the photo to enlarge it). I reminded Mr. C that I purchased them from a wood carver on Kizhi Island in Russia during our trip a few years ago.
He actually said they are beautiful and asked why I didn't buy more. Men!
As we celebrate Easter with all the trappings of chocolate, eggs and bunnies, I am reminded of the true meaning of Easter and how it came to be. May you enjoy a day of Peace and Blessings and time with loved ones. We will be celebrating with dear friends and combining Easter with a Fiftieth Birthday party.
Embracing LOVE and PEACE and praying for our World and the safety of all.
