This and That!

Hi all!
Hope you had a fun weekend.
Mine was busy as usual.
I went to the garage sales on Saturday with my daughter, and got this tall cage, for $5. I set it outside with my new/old bunny and some flowers.
I also spent Saturday and Sunday, planting flowers and getting my yard ready for Spring, and Easter. I am hosting Easter brunch in my backyard.
I have been working on some custom crowns. I got the order on Friday, and they are pretty much done and ready. I love how this little pink one turned out for a new baby present. It's smaller than some, just the right size for a new little princess.
I haven't been around to visit the blogs in the last few days, but now you can see why. I will try to visit tonight or tomorrow. I'm sure you are all getting ready for the upcoming holiday too!
Have a great week! We are expecting some rain tomorrow night, so I am holding off on doing my windows until Wed or Thurs. April showers will water my new flowers!
Have a good week.
Chat again soon!
PS, I forgot to mention, that cute little Easter basket with Queen Robin. That basket is mine. It's my first and only Easter basket. I have had it since I was little. It's still in good shape, fit for a Queen.

You have been busy! The littloe crown is adorable! How perfect for a baby shower where they know it is to be girl!
Your Spring decor looks so sweet and I had a basket just like that when I was little too! My Mom has it...maybe I should ask for it back!

Have a great week...

Hi Rosemary! I've missed you! I SEE THAT WIRE CROWN! ONE DAY I WILL POSSESS ONE! :)

You have been a busy bee, but do visit when you can. So you have been planting already? Oh and here we are in Minnesota, literally freezing. We had a little snow this weekend but they promise a "heat wave" this week...45 degrees!

Take care and get some rest for your party! All looks as gorgeous as ever. Hugs, Anita

Beautiful job on the crown. You've been a busy bee. Wow!!! impatiens, we won't be able to plant those outside for another month and a half. I have to say, in the picture I first thought they were pansies til I clicked to enlarge. Everything looks great. Love the birdhouse for $5!!! Super find!!!Have a great week and Happy Easter

Hello again Rosemary! Thanks for visiting! Aren't those entries a wonderful effort of hard work? It takes a lot of time and thinking! I have a question about the QUEEN ROBIN! Do you sell them? I have a crown just like hers, but no robin! Let me know. Anita

Thanks, Rosemary! I will look for one. Merci.
