I have taken a break from most anything to do with computer work.
Life can get hectic and something had to give.
But spring has arrived, and with that renewal,
including renewed energy.
Spring blossoms are popping up all over the place.
Some trees are already in full bloom.
Hopefully no heavy frost will put an end to all this beauty!
Birds are chirping and are busy, busy, building their nests.
I brought the summer hats out of hiding,
and am wearing them too, while playing
in the garden.
I just love this time of year.
There is so much promise of wonderful discoveries
and fun to come.
Walking around the house, I realized
how many of my collections fit in with
spring and Easter to come.
We purchased this little hanging cabinet from Tirol
on our last trip to Austria.
I believe it had a religious purpose.
It is a most charming piece, made with so much care.
On the right is mom bunny, also from Germany.
I keep gathering families of bunnies.....
well, you know what they say about that....
no wonder there are so many in our home.
Sheep are another of my favorite collections.
You can NEVER have too many!
Case in point!
This one looks like trouble.
These hand-dyed eggs have the most beautiful colors.
All are done with natural dyes.
A chicken with attitude.
He has quite a wonderful ride through the daffodils.
A long time ago we met dear friends of ours at a show
in Bethlehem, P.A.
My friend pointed out these fabulous hand-done eggs.
I still am amazed, every time I hold them and look
at all the details.
And I thought, I did little things...
this boggles the mind.
The back of the egg.
Here are two "love birds".
Hubby and I.
Wonder what he is whispering into her ear?
More eggs in a wonderful leather covered hat box.
Another treasured egg.
Wish I had more!!!!
The back of this one.
I played in Picasa. Like the soft look.
Found this little fellow at a flea market in Berlin.
He hopped all the way to the USA.
Even the bathroom got some spring flowers.
And last but not least,
my rabbits, hubby and I
wish you all a marvelous spring,
and a divine Easter or any other holiday
you might be celebrating.
