Bloggie Giveaway and Easter !!!!

Easter is fast approaching. Yep, it is early this year. March 23rd. So while Valentine's day hasn't even come, I am madly scrambling on easter projects. I admit, I am in my element with Easter colors. My house looks like a basket of colored pastel eggs year round. Well. I finally figured out what to do with the candle holders. Voila' Easter cloches !! lol. I have another plan for the rose glass sconces, stay tuned. Aren't these sweet ? And I also made a few boxes. I love the eggs, and of course the sweet bunny. I have gotten a bit secular with the whole Easter theme, but really, to me, Easter means everlasting hope for us all, through Christ Jesus.




Last post was my 50th !!! Yay !! I would never have thought I have that much to say. lol. I use the word " Sweet" a lot. Probably at least 50 times, and I apologize for that. lol. But that is probably my favorite word, SO.. if you are reading the Next 50 posts, you will have to hear it at least 50 more times. lol. That and lots of pictures. My give away is this sweet ballerina "Dancing Queen" box. ( I have another just like it on etsy ) Just leave a post, and I will have a drawing next Sunday the third to announce a winner. Mr Hairy Knuckles will be doing the drawing again. :) He enjoyed his brief moment of fame.
