Spring Flowers & I Won a Giveaway!

I filled this little rooster pitcher with spring daffodils and a few pieces from our yoshino cherry tree. I added forsythia to the arrangement but forgot to take another picture! Look at those cute bunny salt and pepper shakers! 
 Everything  has turned so pretty and green in the last few days here.  I love Spring!

One of my tulips has decided to bloom ... purple.  Amber's favorite color and the main color Jennifer is using in her wedding.  This wedding has kept me busy!

My pansies are so pretty this year.  I love the bright yellow with the purple centers.

Here is a picture of one of our yoshino cherry trees.  It is a large tree and is beautiful this year.  After it rained the other day the ground looked as if it had snowed with all the falling blooms.

And finally I won a giveaway in a Bunny Hop that Barb of http://corgitoquiltby.blogspot.com/ was participating in.  This is the cutest bunny pattern with the Easter eggs.  See the adorable fabric that was included!  The little bunnies and the other fabrics look like little Easter eggs ... so cute!  Please go by and visit Barb and her blog.

Well that's all I have for the moment.  We are painting my dining room and hopefully it will be finished in a few days.  We have been so busy the past couple of weeks ... I am going to try to visit other blogs to see what is going on in the blogging world.

God Bless and thanks for visiting,

Isn't spring just so renewing? It is God's hand working his amazing paint brush!

Donna, I think of you each and every day. I pray that you are doing well. Amber is smiling down on you and the purple tulips!

I love the heart that you made for Jack. It is just beautiful - just like your own heart.

What a cute thing you won!

Via some other mutual blogs that we read and also through making a heart for Jack, I found your beautiful blog and read it all the way back to the beginning. My heart goes out to you Donna, upon losing your precious daughter, Amber last summer. My best friend lost her son 5 years ago and I know the journey we have traveled with that loss (and he was not even my son). My heart will never be the same! I look forward to being a follower and getting to know you better. I too love to quilt, I collect angels and I LOVE anything Mary Engelbreit. I am so excited for you that you have an upcoming wedding. My oldest daughter got married 2 years after Daniel's death. There were some sad times, but we knew he was with us in spirit. Amber will be there with you all as well. I want to go to Kim's blog and see which heart you made for Jack. Wasn't that a fun project to participate in? I enjoyed doing it so much. I also love to cook/bake and I want to try some of your recipes. Thanks for sharing your heart about your precious daughter with all of us in the blog world. Love & blessings from NC!
