Eggs and Bubbles and M&M Seeds

  We have Easter breakfast at our house...This works well as the
daughters and sons-by-love
always have several stops to make on holidays

 Lucy knew that something was up and waited and watched
for the family to arrive.

  Earlier in the week the grandchildren were here
 to plant spring colored M&M's.

  On Easter morning those M&M seeds
sprouted into marshmallows, lollipops and peeps.

 After breakfast the egg hunt began...


 The Bunny brought bubble blowers and after the gathering of the eggs,
the yard was filled with smiles and bubbles.

 We had a lovely Easter morning with the family.
(funny isn't it, that I only have grandbaby photos)

A Good Find...

For 39 years I have had a lamp like this one on my dresser, 
a bridal shower gift from my soon to be Mother-in-law.

The past two weeks I've had my signs in a local spring consignment show.
One day last week, I strolled through the shop after making a delivery
and saw two of the same lamps
in one of the vendor's display.
I snatched them up as we had two mismatched lamps
on the night stands on either side of our bed.
Just what I really wasn't looking for but happy to find.

 I did a Google search for information on Quoizel, Abigail Adams lamps
and discovered that they are still being made. 
I found them listed for $300-400. 
The vintage lamps are going for $200.00.
Each lamp was priced at $22.00.
Definitely a great find!

No Blood Moon for Me...

Who was able to see the Blood Moon this morning?
Even though the sky was cloudy when I went to bed last night,
I had hoped that there might be a break in those clouds
and I would get a glimpse. I changed the settings on the camera
and set the alarm for a bit before 3am.
I was so disappointed...
it was a no go here in Maryland.

Coloring Eggs...

Coloring eggs for Easter is a serious job...
just look at the faces on the grandkids and great nephew.

But after the dye job..
we had smiles, giggles and laughing..

Spring has sprung in my little corner.
