Decorating for Easter has never been on my list of things to do.  Sure, there would be an egg hunt and a basket for the children when they were little.  Maybe a family dinner, and always church on Sunday. 

Easter Flower Cross

The flower filled Cross out in front of the church, the adorable children in their Easter finery, the service and music that CHRIST IS RISEN!
I have put together a few Easter images for those of you wanting a little inspiration for your Easter
I hope everyone has a wonderful EASTER!

A First!

Reading through other blogs, I have noticed that the authors mention the friendships they make and the people they connect with are among the greatest benefits of blogging. 

Even though I have not had many comments or views on my blog as of yet, I can already feel the sense of community and see how these friendships nurture and encourage.

My last post was about link parties and I actually dared to step outside my little world and post a link on another blog.  Imagine my surprise when I read the newest post from that blog and saw my entry among the items she featured!!!

Learning Something New

Well, today I discovered the most amazing thing about blogging!  You can add links to other blogs.  Not just random links to random blogs, but PARTIES!! 

I had heard of link parties, but had not ventured further than browsing through them.

Anita from Cedar Hill Ranch hosts The Scoop...Anita's description...The weekly link party, that features the scoop on the best posts from around the web. 
Stop by every Tuesday, link up and browse through the posts. 
You'll always find great inspiration for projects and discover some new blog friends too.

Debra at Common Ground has The Marketplace.  Here is the description of what that is in her own words...

This is the place where you can link up all your Etsy and Online Shop items, then have fun checking out what's new. You don't have to have a blog to participate. You can link up to three of your individual items or a link to your online store.

The Marketplace at Common Ground

Linda at Costal Charm shares Nifty Thrifty Tuesday, stop by and check it out at Nifty Thrifty Tuesday

Is that awesome or what?!! 
Off to do some more browsing to see what else I can learn...Have a good day!

It's Been a While

Yes, it has been a while.  Long story made died.  So after getting a new one, learning Windows 8 and trying to retrieve photos, I'm ready to give this blogging thing a try again.

Here are some random pictures from the Feb. show at Lakewood 400.  Since it is this upcoming weekend, I thought I had better get these posted...

Geppetto's Closet is the place for vintage blocks, toys and books.

Tim has an assortment of odds and ends

Art, Lynn and Christie have a huge space overflowing with goods
