Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.
As Beverly requested I am posting some pics of my Easter decor.
Above is a picture of my Easter tree.

Below my old green chair in my foyer all done up for Easter.

A few little Easter decorations, please don't mind my old staircase still under construction.

A few closeups of Easter tree.

Some faux Easter cookies that my daughter Jen made for me a few years ago.

This little April pillow below I cross stitched this week. This is about the only thing I created this season for Easter, I had so many things planned but will tuck them away until next year. I guess I will get to creating some non-holiday things now.
I finally got over this really bad cold and I'm feeling much better now. Thank you all for your well wishes!
Yesterday was the first of 10 days off for me for Easter Break. I have so many things planned to do. Our weather has been in the 80's this week so I'm really enjoying some time outside also. Yesterday it was so pretty that I ate my lunch on the front porch. Just really loving this weather!

A few little Easter decorations in a peach country look. I painted this little bunny over 25 years ago.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visist with you.
I wish you a Blessed Easter! Shirl

Happy Pink Saturday Shirl...
Sweetie I so adore your Easter tree. How beautiful it is and it certainly does say Easter, Spring and Beauty. Oh yes what a beauty it is to welcome your guests. I could spend hours looking at all the beautiful things on it.

That little pillow you created is beautiful, so pink and pretty. Just you sweetie. Love it.

I adored the little pink bunny that you had painted. Now that is just stinkin darn cute. So cute. He could stay out year round too. I love projects that turn out like that.

Have a beautiful Easter sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

Hi Shril,
Glad to hear you're feeling better. Great Easter tree! What a cute idea. Of course, my eyes went directly to your embroidered linens, the beautiful quilt and that adorable April pillow. I love hand stitchted items like that.

Hi Shirl,
I am trying to catch up a little. I love your Easter tree, and the pink bunny on your chair, so cute. I hope your Son is doing well, he is in my prayers, and so are you. My Son will be deployed in July, sigh.

Leann said...

Everything looks wonderful. I love the wallpaper. Do you remember what kind it is? I'd love to find some like it for our bedroom.
