Spring... where ARE you??? ....


I can never remember a winter seeming to last as long as this one has... and I am craving Spring more than ever!!! ... a look in my garden journal from last Spring tells me that at this time last year, I had already worked in my gardens and they were ready to be planted... my gardens still have snow all over them... not pretty snow either, but dirty, ugly end of winter snow... the weatherman predicted "sunshine, blue skies and warm days"... hmmm... I'm starting to trust the Groundhog in his predictions more than our local weatherman!... so, I decided to bring more Spring to me... inside!...
This darling bunny is anxious to "Welcome Spring" as well... she is from my friends shop Madeleine L'Amour... isn't she precious!...
This sweet pink bunny carrying eggs is also from their shop...
"Sunshine Bunny" is from my friend Amy's shop at the Shabby Rose Bunny... I ordered it new this year and it makes me smile!...
This adorable little bunny and chicks basket was purchased last year from Amy's shop as well... it just sings out "Springtime" to me!...

This pretty Bunny Queen was a giveaway win last year from my friend Jenn at Sweet Eye Candy Creations... love, love love her sweet tiara!...
The little egg in the front of the photo below and the cute little basket with chick is also from Madeleine L'Amour... the "chocolate" bunny was a gift with my order from Amy at the Shabby Rose Bunny...
All of these darling little bunnies and chicks can't wait for Springtime either... while I am waiting... I think I will go buy me a real chocolate bunny and eat it's ears right off!... is that how you eat your chocolate bunnies too?... xoxo...

Hi Julie Marie,
I have always said that the good Lord worked out the seasons just right because just as you are tired to death of one along comes the next one. However, last year and this year...sick, sick, sick of winter!!! lol

These are just darling!! I didn't know Amy was back to selling her cute little bunnies. I love them.



I'm staying clear of chocolate, but if I could have one, I'd probably eat the ears first, too!

XO,
Jane

Rita said...

Yes! I love to eat the bunny ears first! Maybe your bunnies will bring on the Spring weather. I'm so thankful that the Lord gives us different seasons, though. How boring it would be if there was only Winter or only Spring!

I am keeping my fingers crossed as tight as I can that you get your Spring very soon. When it finally arrives for you it is going to be extra special and more welcomed than ever.

Your Bunnies are precious. They certainly do remind me of Spring. The colors are perfect!

Hi Julie, Now I am so inspired and I so need it getting back in my studio and just swamped with creations.
I love all your sweet Spring bunnies and Amy's creations are darling. She is so talented.
Love the awesome bunnies from Madeleine L'Amour too. That white one is way too cute.

I wish I could send you some warmer temps. Spring is coming here and my flowers are beginning to bloom. Now I can't wait to get in the garden.
Have a wonderful evening.
Love to you, Celestina Marie
p.s. thank you for the sweet comments about my new kitchen. You are always an encouragment to me!

Hi Julie, thanks so much for the kind words about our shop Madeleine L'Amour. I'm also anxious for spring to arrive, but I will be sending warm thoughts your way in the meantime. el

Rebecca said...

Oh sweet friend...what a precious post! I love all the signs of spring and your pretties have inspired me to pull the rest of mine out.

I want you to know that you bless me. For all my yappings there are moments when I'm quiet and contemplative and work to take in all that goes on around me. You never fail to stop by and encourage me just when I'm in need of it most.

You may not always "hear" my words...but I am always here friend. Always.

Love you girly~
