Oh Spring! Wherefore Art Thou?

Good morning and can you believe all the places getting snow? WE got it too.  I am glad you came Through My Back Door this morning. Please help yourself to the coffee and come sit by the fire. Can you believe it is snowing? I couldn't. It is really coming down and laying. Looks good sitting in here but it is cold and I am looking for spring. Lots of you all are too, but I guess we take what we get.lol
This was taken earlier and it is still snowing. I am waiting for this.
I know most of you all are too, because I have read your blogs, saw it on FB, or heard you in person. It will be here. I am trying to learn to just enjoy the "Now."
Since Easter is next week I thought I would share a bit of my Easter "gifts." We are all aware of the best gift ever, God gave his son, Jesus to die on the cross, that we may have the GIFT of Eternal Life. It brings tears to my eyes when I think of the brutality He suffered for me.
 Today I will share a few gifts from some friends.
Cross stitch from my friend Carla Herron. She gave this to me the first time we met. Deb made the bunny and the egg is from Russia, a gift from my friend Carol.
I always hate to put it away after Easter.
Another Deb bunny. Eggs from my friend Linda Young.
Sharon (the Speckled Hen) made and gave me this lamb. I love him.
Pewter looking bunnies in the Corner cupboard.
Love this little metal bunny on the mantle.
My friend Carol Brown gave me this bunny years ago, but he is still a favorite. I try to keep him out all year. I love his face.
Carol Brown also gave me the wax bunny on the right. Another egg from Carol and an antique pewter egg cup from Dottie. I bought the little  chalkware bunny for a nickle at a yard sale, years ago.
These two are my favorite "bunnies".lol
Thought I would share where my onion bottle and glasses ended up. I am not a drinker, but this is Colonial. lol

Well, it was so nice having you come Through My Back Door where life is good.

  4. Hi Betty! Your yard looks like Spring compared to here. Sigh...we got 3 more inches last night...luckily the storm mostly fizzled before it got here. Al is out shoveling now...AGAIN! I would tell you how my crocus are, but they are buried in that white stuff.I have two Ukrainian Easter eggs, but I use them on my Christmas tree. I bought them years ago from a very famous egg decorator that is local. Mollie and Andrew are so sweet...and I think I know who thinks they are each somebunny special! ;) ---Jan

  5. Love all your Easter pics with the bunnies. We have about 3-4 inches of snow here. Soon, when God wants it to be...it will be spring. Until then I try to be patient.

  6. Well no snow here, just lots of wind and very cold. I am ready to get out in my flower beds, my iris's have buds on them already. Well since I can't be outside will enjoy adding spring touches inside. Love your collection of bunnies, especially the two on the bench, they are so cute. Enjoy your day Betty. Vicky

  7. Love all your spring decor Betty. Sure wish we were pulling into your drive to sit and chat the snowy day away. But instead will get out the door for a day of shopping when we get Darbee Rae from school. We are surprising
