Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Hoppin Down the Bunny Trail

This year I just haven't had the time or energy to decorate for Easter
but I did manage to stick a few things here and there.

Like last years mega-hit, Bunny on a Stick.
Oh, and a duck with an umbrella.  Seems kind of
appropriate for this wetter than normal April.

We NEED to have our Easter tree displayed, of course.

 The little chickie is something I bought this year.  Like I need one more decoration for any holiday! 
But she was too cute to pass up.

My adorable crocheting friend Janis made me these cute little egg warmers. She has mad crochet skills go check out this post on her blog.

 Last summer I found an orange wool sweater that someone had felted by mistake at a yard sale.  So of course when I saw that sweater I thought  Easter Carrots!  Wouldn't you have thought the same thing?
 I cut off the sleeves and made a couple.  Now I have an orange vest that might fit a four year old.

 My chunky chick that I've had for a loooong time.

I guess I can't stop making giant carrots because I made another one.  Does anybody think that's weird?

Anyway, hope your Easter is filled with family, friends, food, and fun!  And at least a few minutes to reflect on the Savior and His atoning sacrifice for each of  us. 
Happy Easter!

I think the big carrot is perfect for the Easter bunny. He will come to your house first for sure.

I'm too busy getting organized to do anything. I kind of got wrangled into having a thing tomorrow but it's Little Ceasars and a tub of ice cream

Love the big carrot.
Women's conf. next week. Wahoo

I love your carrots! I haven't done much decorating for Easter either. I am thankful though :-)

The lake is not far from Big Bear, up in the same mountain range. It's a few miles from Lake Arrowhead, and then Big Bear is probably 10 or 15 miles further. We love to go up there.

So glad you got to ride "Soaring". I want to ride it everytime we go there :-)
Have a glorious Easter!

The giant carrot is awesome. I need three for my door so I don't hang that pathetic blue fried egg flower I made. It's like proclaiming to the world that I can't sew well. Like in the old days when they'd execute rebels and post their heads on sticks as a message to every one else to watch out. Yes, watch out for my sewing--don't let me volunteer to make anything important. ;)
