Spring Greetings! I hope ALL of you my sweet friends had a WONDERFUL & BLESSED Easter Holiday. We had a terrific weekend and it was NON STOP busy!
Grant's pre-school had an Easter egg hunt and had some very sweet and fuzzy guest.
Each child had the opportunity to hold a baby chick. I think Grant made a friend. ;)
Of course I had to take a BEST FRIENDS picture!
It's OFFICIAL!!!! Im a SOCCER MOM! EEK! Is that good or bad? You always here mixed things about the term "Soccer Mom". There's a sterotype behind the name. Well, all I know is my little man wants to play soccer and hubby and I took him to his second practice. At three years old, they honestly dont do much except little drill practices. Parents are highly encouraged to be involved. So, here are some fun pics of Grant and I on the field.
We had to carry our childern on our backs and kick the ball. :)
Kicking the ball with Daddy.
At the end of the practice. The coach makes all the children throw their soccer ball up in the air and scream "POPCORN!!!!" It's just the CUTEST!!!!
Saturday my parents came to visit and stay the night, and I invited some friends over for a very last minute impromptu dinner party. We had GORGEOUS weather that day, so I decided it would be the PERFECT weather to dine outside in our garden room. I set the table all within an hour. If I had more time Im sure I could have gone all out, but Im pretty happy with the results. Unfortunately, I dont have many potted flowers and plants in the room because of the cold nights and frost, but with a last minute purchase of pink hydrangea it turned out pretty. With a little candle light, good food & wine, family and friends, and XM radio old jazz playing in the background it was a PERFECT night!
I have a small bistro table I used for more seating. It's soooo sweet and intimate. My parents sat at this little table.
Easter Sunday we went to my in-laws house for the day. My mother in law had a HUGE spread of yummy food. The kids of course easter egg hunt and had a BLAST! Here's one of my bunnies eating a strawberry.
Getting ready to hunt eggs.
Checking out the loot with the girls from next door.
Now onto some fun easter yummies!!!!!!!
I went to the Flea market Saturday and picked up some wonderful goodies. Im not going to show all, because some are for swap gifts, but I found this ADORABLE gem and only paid $2 for this bunny candy dispenser. I cleaned it all up and it currently sits in Grants room. :)
I had a wonderful and lovely surprise from my friend Suzanne Duda with whom I met at Silver Bella and is practically neighbors because she lives about two hours north of me. She emailed me and told me that she had a little gift for Miss Vivian. She found it one day while antiquing and knew it would be PERFECT for Vivi to have. I knew whatever Suzanne bought had to be FABULOUS! She has such beautiful taste! Well lookie lookie....Miss Vivi has her first apron now. It's a vintage child apron in a gorgeous shade of blue.
I tried putting it on her but it looked more like a big skirt. LOL! However, as she get's older she will grow into it and look darling wearing it while helping Mommy cook. Thank you soooo much Miss Suzanne! Vivi is blowing you kisses!!!!
Hello! My name is Miss Fabulous! YES! These precious little clothes pin doll is just the SWEETEST! Jennifer of Lollipop workshop has started creating these darling little gals, and they are flying off the shelves. I took one look at Miss Fabulous and her froo froo poodles and knew she had to come home with me. :)
I participated in Bella's Enchanted Easter Basket swap and I was EXTREMLY lucky to have been partnered up with my adorable and fabulous friend Miss Cheryl Rosey Posey. I received my basket of goodies the other day and was BLOWN away by all the yummy sweetness! It felt like Christmas all over. Cheryl knows me and my style SO well, and she did a fantastic job on my basket. Gotta share the treats with ya!
LOVE my chenille easter basket!
I ADORE the sweet little embroidered lamby and bunny!!!!
Pink chenille for my work and adorable itty bitty baby.
I am TICLKED PINK with my Easter Basket. Miss Cheryl you did such an awesome job creating and personalizing this custom basket just for ME! I LOVE EVERY BIT!!!! :)
Here's a lookie at the basket I made for her.
I made this adorable little Easter sign for Cheryl to display.
Wanna be friends?
What is Easter without a bunny???? I know Cheryl loves soft soothing colors with a touch of heirloom and sweet sentiment. So I created a special bunny girl just for her. She is the LARGEST bunny I have ever worked with, and she is so lifelike! She carries her basket of flowers and along with her vintage hankie. I've adorned the basket with lace trim and vintage pearl earbob. Her straw hat is adorned with pink paper roses.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE how she turned out, it was almost hard to part with her. hee! hee! I hope Miss Cheryl will love her Easter Basket as much as I enjoyed making it for her.
Now that Easter is behing us hopefully things will be a little less hectic this week, and I can get busy filling some orders and catching up on swaps.
