“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

Easter ...'lilies of the fields'



Last week...my Easter Egg Cup Collection with little "Tell" to it...This week, the same...hardly any tell to my show. LOLOLOL In my diningroom area:




- - -<><><>- - -


One; like spokes on a bike
I look hither and yon,
but, none the same, none alike.

One; like whipped butter 'r frosting on cake
I look hither and yon,
but, all's real, not silk, none fake.

Hues, shapes, height and depth they bring
I look hither and yon,
but, comes the wildflowers of Spring!!

  16. Good Morning Annie Sweetie...
    I so adore this post. I love your poem. Honey you have a special gift to write that goes along with your beautiful gift to draw. How wonderful that is. You were truly gifted from the Lord himself, and I am so thrilled that you chose to take this talents and run with them.

    Love your beautiful candlesticks, you little basket is precious, and love the chocolate bunny. He looks good enough to eat, but is he faux? I have several of those, and believe me the grandkids have all checked them out. Now aren't those bunny plates just stinkin darn cute? I love them. They would look beautiful on any table.

    Are you having company for Easter? They kids will all stop by, but I have stopped cooking dinner for all. It is to expensive, and to exhausting for me. Our family has grown in leaps and bounds, and I always end up doing all the work. I can't do it anymore. Not and work the hours that I do.

    Happy Easter sweet friend. The year is really passing us by again. 2 weeks from today and I leave for Maryland to go and visit Blushing Rose (Marydon). We are going to have so much fun, and I can't wait to see all the history in that state. I will have lots to share when I get back.

    Love ya sweetie...Hugs, Sherry

  17. I love wildflowers - except for when they make me sneeze! Happy Easter, Anni!

  18. So darn cute.... Have a Very Happy Easter dear Anni!
