~I missed you & and A Thank you~

 Oh, how I have missed  you! I really have, it seems like I have been gone for ever....We had a lovely trip to Las Vegas. The only bad thing was  I brought home a terrible allergy with a really bad sore throat and dry cough...I still have it and it just won't go away. I think I'm allergic to smoke...
I need to catch up with so many of you and I will. I have been thinking of you and wondering how you have been.
Can you believe Easter is next weekend! my goodness where has the time gone..
A few weeks ago I won a very lovely gift from "Rebecca" you all know Rebecca from A Gathering of Thoughts
I was so thrilled and so excited. Rebecca is a dear heart and she is so very talented and creative. When Gary and I arrived home from running errands yesterday  I saw a  package on the doorstep of our little cottage..I couldn't wait to get out of car and take it inside to open it and  see what was inside. The package was from Rebecca and when I opened it I was so delighted!
Just look at this sweet pink bunny pillow...how adorable can one pillow be!


 Along with the pillow was a bunny card to match that I can send to someone since its blank inside, but I can't part with it. The card sparkles with happiness! and playful bunny's.
 Also a gift tag and the little envelope you see has a tea bag in it, how darn cute is that!. I love everything Rebecca thank you so very much...I heart you!

 So in the spirit of Bunny's I thought I would share a few decorations I have around the house..nothing much this year since we are not hosting Easter... Our daughters Desire' and Bernadette are hosting Easter and big Easter egg hunt for all the kids...
 You might recognize this little bunny ...she only comes out at Easter time to keep an eye on all the little ones hunting for pretty colored eggs she has hidden....
 I know these dark chocolate bunny candles are kinda of weird....but I really liked them!!LOL
I don't think I'll be lighting them.I don't want them to melt. LOL

 
 Just a little Some Bunny Loves you pillow.
An Easter garland strung across the fireplace...

 "Every Bunny Welcome" is hung along side the wall as you enter our home.

Happy Spring you all! We had the most beautiful weekend weather we have had in along time. I hope your weekend was full of warmth and sunshine and everything that makes you happy![signature.gif]

Sorry that you're under the weather. I hadn't thought of all that smoke you'd have to be around...ugh.

Your new pillow and bunnies are so cute. What a sweet win from Rebecca. And your own Easter decorations are great, even the chocolate bunnies' candlesticks. Of course, they have to be chocolate!

Hi sweet Elizabeth,
I do hope you're feeling better. I know this crazy weather we've been having probably isn't helping. This weekend was absolutely beautiful...We even went to The Wild Animal on Sunday and it was a gorgeous day. But since Monday there has not been one little ray of sun...What happened? Is it the same over where you are? Anyways, congratulations on your giveaway gift. It's absolutely beautiful. Gotta love Ms. Rebecca and her gorgeous creations. Enjoy my dear friend. Wishing you and all your family a very blessed Easter.


Hugs and Kisses,
♥Ana

Miss Jean said...

What a lucky girl you are! The bunnie gifts are wonderful. I came home from Denver with allergies as well. My sister and I flew there and I took the train home by myself. Bad trip!!!!!!!! The bad snow storm in March? Yep, I was on a train and a 9 hour bus trip from Reno! But it was worth it to meet my son at the airport as he arrived from Afghanistan!!! Woo Hoo!!!

I know how you feel - some days I wish I were Maggie as well! LOL!

bj said...

So sorry you aren't feeling well..my daughter always has the same trouble after being in smoke filled casinos in Vegas. It doesn't bother me...I just say "bring me another roll of quarters." :))
Feel better soon.

Hi sweetie! It was so good to hear from you! It has been awhile since we visited, it would be so nice to get together again. I hope you feel better, all your Easter pics are adorable. Did you and Gary have a nice Easter? Talk to you soon, and get well, Marcia

blessedmom's simple home said...

Easter looks so pretty at your house, I hope you had a wonderful one!
It's a good thing those candles have wicks, or someone might take a bite out of them. They look just like chocolate bunnies :-)

Thank you so much for your continued prayers for my nephew Jordan. They mean so much :-)
Blessings,
Marcia

Dawn said...

What a great pillow to add to your easter decor. Something about those chocolate bunny head candles makes me uneasy, LOL! My kids feel the same way about my paper mache cow head/shelf "Bessie". But quirky has it's place too.

Hope you're feeling better. Isn't it a shock to leave CA and walk into a public building that allows smoking? It wreaks havoc with my asthma.

Beverly said...

Hope you are feeling better by now. Just wanted to say how much I missed your posts and glad you are back now. Enjoyed your Easter bunnies. Love, love the spring hanging basket. Hope you had a great Easter.
