The two Easter basket on either side of the yellow wagon were given to Shawn and Miranda while they were shooting Easter commercials for a grocery store here in Phoenix 18 years ago. I remember that day clearly because I was in labor with Tyler during that whole filming! Shawn (7) and Miranda (4) were so excited because they got to keep the Easter outfits they filmed in AND the Easter baskets they carried during the egg hunt portion of the filming. I remember savoring every moment, knowing my life was about to change with the arrival of our 3rd born!
A while back I posted about my collection of give-aways that I got from all the years I entered 4-H exhibits at our Jackson County Fair. Recently I went to a yard sale and found the PINK rain bonnet basket for 10 cents!! I was so thrilled! I mean, what were the chances I'd ever find another one after all these years!
This is "my" Easter basket from when I was a little girl. My parents would hide all the Easter baskets and when we found one, we'd cross off the name of whoever had it the year before and write "our" name on the basket. How weird is that! And the eggs in the basket were made just for me by my sister Ginny over 25 years ago! Those fabric eggs are my very favorite Easter decoration! I mean, look at those fabrics!
Remember the Lego Santa's that I collected when the kids were little. Well, around that time they also came out with Lego Easter Bunny's. Are they not the cutest!
OK, soooo, who wants to know about my new aqua/blue cake stand that I am completely in love with!! Well, I found it at Ross... most unexpectedly, I might add. I mean, there it was... and it was everything I ever wanted in a cake stand... the aqua/blue color, the pink peonies and HELLO! the price tag...$8.99! YES, she came home with me!
Hey everyone, have a blessed Easter weekend! HE IS RISEN!
