Happy Easter

The weather this year seems to have forgotten that it is Spring! It reminds me of growing up in Buffalo and standing outside for our Easter pictures all dressed in our new outfits and pretty shoes and hats and being ankle deep in snow !  We aren't as warm as we normally have been in years past here in NC, but I'm sure not going to complain, because before you know it, it is going to be so hot and humid that I will be wishing for days like these.  Wishing you all a very Happy Easter!

What a weekend!

Wow what I weekend I had!  We traveled to Charlotte to attend my daughters wedding! She was so beautiful, and the wedding and reception was just lovely! My son officiated the ceremony, and they did a really sweet thing during the ceremony. My son explained that a marriage must be build on a solid foundation like a rock, (everyone had received a stone prior to the ceremony) we were all to make a wish with the stone and go up and place the stones in a circle around them, helping them to remember what their marriage was founded on. It was so sweet.  The food was wonderful, and all and all we had a wonderful time. I do have to say that my daughters dress looks like it was made just for her. She was a beautiful bride! We are so lucky that she found such an amazing young man to marry. We welcome to the family with open arms my new son in law Jimmy!












Now the fun is over and it's time for me to get back to work, I have dolls that are waiting for me, and a few new painted items in the works.  Have a wonderful week everyone!

Can it be possible?

Wow I can't believe how quickly this year has going by! It is already March, and Easter is right around the corner! This month is going to be very busy for me, I have a trip that I am very excited to take coming up. My beautiful daughter is getting married this month! I have dreamed of this day, since the day she was born :)   It is so hard to believe that the time is actually here, when she makes this step. I couldn't be happier for her, and her fiancee. He is a wonderful man, and he loves her so much. I know that they will have many years of happiness ahead of them!

On a creative note, I want to share the newest bunnies that I have made. I am so happy with the way they turned out!  They are available on ETSY
