Sharing Springtime Delights

A big brown envelope embellished with special stamps

 and watercolor treats, arrived in my mailbox a few weeks ago.  

An early Easter gift, post marked ~ Canada!

Inside were two treasures 

that made my heart skip a beat.

The handmade card with this precious bunny

and sweetest gardening quote and

a darling piece of needlework stitched years ago.

(Needlework so special it will get a post of its own.)

Someone in Canada knows my heart.

I suspect she may have heard my squeal of delight

all the way up in Quebec.

Thank you Monique @ La Table deNana,

Spring Delights!

This cute guy came to Texas last summer,

secured at the annual MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale

by thoughtful friends who knew he was on my shopping list.

Patti and Debbie

Personal shoppers extraordinaire!

Handsome guy had been in my sights since Easter 2016.

I mean, not only is he a rabbit,

he's a Courtly Check rabbit, 

a Courtly Check rabbit holding a Nantucket Basket.

Need I explain more?

Yes, to Courtly Check Spring Delights!

Wouldn't you know, this year MacKenzie - Childs

added yet more to their Easter offerings.

So many temptations!

I couldn't resist this sweetie with the crown.

Delightfully Spring, wouldn't you say?

You know the saying, "How one thing leads to another."

Or the domino effect!

I found this Easter chick decor at TJ Max, 

but it wasn't too interesting with pastel eggs.

Lucky for me, I have a talented friend who 

agreed to "Kenzie" it up for me.

Patti @ Pandora's Box

worked her magic to create

this one of a kind piece for my personal clutch.

sent me this little chick in a basket last year.

Another friend gifted me this adorable peeper.

He's quite happy perched in my Courtly Check mug.

Are you beginning to see a pattern?

It's been delightful playing around 

with different vignettes for the dining room buffet.

Spring Delights ~ Delightfully Spring

Debbie @ Mountain Breaths

created this adorable vignette with the same pieces.
