Easter Fun

Thought I'd get a jump start on spring!  I believe the weather in Virginia this year has been spring-like at times.  We recently experienced an 80-degree day in the middle of February!  I'm not complaining, though.  I will glady take those days any time I can get them.

I discovered these cute moss-covered bunnies and carrots at a floral design shop.  Thought they would be cute on the mantle, or on the table.  So let's get a jump start on spring and think bunnies, eggs, and carrots!
These fun carrots could be cute lying a napkin, on top of your dinner plate, or as shown here, hanging from the chandelier!
Towering candle holders hold moss balls, and a plain table runner allows all focus to be on the decor.
This bunny is carrying mini eggs...
A vintage bunny oval vase is the perfect container for fresh flowers.
A lazy bunny!

Mini moss balls, mini bunnies, and crystal votives finish off the design.
The table is set with green and yellow plates, floral napkins, and

crystal stems...
 The party is just about ready to begin!!
Easter is Sunday, April 16th!  We have plenty of time to get ready!!

Hugs and Kisses

 What the world needs now is love, sweet love.  Now, more than ever before, we need love.  The hate, anger, bitterness and division is breaking our country apart, not to mention friendships and sometimes, even families.  And why?  How wonderful that we are all so passionate about our country that we have an opinion as to how things should be done. What's not so wonderful is how it is interpreted by others.  Posting political links and opinions on social media, I believe, only incites anger, leading to more posting, and more anger.  Everyone is entitled to what they believe.  That's how our country was founded--freedom of speech.  Let's do our best to respect others, but not incite anger.  I am so thankful for our freedoms, opportunities, and this wonderful, beautiful country.  If we all live by this rule--"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you", would the anger, violence, and division be a thing of the past?  I don't know, but I do know it certainly wouldn't be a bad thing.  So this Valentine's Day, let's celebrate love.  Let's hug and kiss. Let's eat chocolate, drink wine, and dance.  That's what I intend to do!!
Enjoy a little love today!
Red wine, red roses, and red hearts!

Sending hugs and kisses to you today!
