Easter Greetings & a Mini Tour!

Happy Wednesday everyone... it's a beautiful sunny day here in the Mid-west...just warm enough to get all that snow melting before temps drop to single digits and everything freezes up again. Yikes! Hurry up Spring!

Here's a card that is definitely Spring... this adorable bunny is an image from Daisy Dee that I colored with Prisma pencils and added some glaze pen to the polka dots and for accent on the sentiment. His cotton tail is puffed up with Liquid Applique and a touch of glitter.


These cute little props that I've been adding to my photos all come from the miniature general store that I created over 30 years ago with the help of my sons. My sons were just little tykes and they were so enthused about creating all kinds of furnishings.. even things like eggs, pickles, potatoes and cinnamon rolls out of Fimo clay.

Even the country mouse wants some of those cinnamon rolls..
One day my oldest (seven years old at the time) surprised me with this doll house for the store. He made it out of scraps of balsa wood, paint, fabric and bits of wallpaper. 

Two years ago, for Mother's day, that same son found this stashed away in the box in the basement, revived it with new wallpaper and electrical wiring.. and bought some new additions, including this dress for the sewing section. What a wonderful Mother's Day that was.. I hadn't had this out for at least 20 years when the electrical wiring stopped working. And don't even ask how much that dress was...!! Money is no object when it comes to my oldest son.



In it's new spot in the house, I see it every day.. the lights stay on all the time and it's a great nightlight. It conjures up such great memories of my innocent little freckled-faced boys. Today, I appreciate this creativity even more.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a terrific day full of fond memories.
'Til next time, be safe in all you do.

What a great tour. LOVE it, and the little bunny card is a welcoming spring image. Maybe if we keep creating all these spring things, it will actually happen. Whatcha' think?

Your card is too cute, gf! I was wondering about all the cuteness you've been using to stage lately. What a wonderful story and a great way to relive it all! :O)

Hugs,
