~ New Goodies to Share ~

Happy Friday Friends!...well it's April 15th and just yesterday I got our income taxes finished and mailed...come to find out that this year the deadline is Monday the 18th and I had a whole 'nother weekend!'s just as well...I am always glad to get that humungous chore outta the way!

After all that number crunching and paper sorting, I have treated myself, fairly well I might add, to some new goodies that I'd like to share. As you know, I love collecting handmades and I have added some wonderful treasures to my collections!...lookie here, I purchased not one but two new Schneeman bunnies made by Norma!...aren't they precious?...I've got one on each end table that are on either side of the sofa.
Also, I was fortunate enough to purchase this adorable bunny made by Lori of Homespun Prims by Lori along with this beautiful fabric covered box that came with the adorable little pinkeep...isn't this just as cute as can be?
And lookie at the cupboard hanger I purchased from Ronda of Simple Thyme Prims!

And this cute bear made by Jenn of Rabbit Hollow Prims...I love the lavender flower she crocheted!
Then there's these adorable bunnies that I purchased from Maureen of Buckbrush Farm...the standing one dressed in the brown coat and the wee chalkware one that I've placed in a pewter dish with an olde wooden egg...I just love 'em!
If all of that wasn't enough...the other day I went out and about to a few places that I don't get to very often...and I purchased this sweet little pot of faux daffodils at Pottery Barn...I love Pottery many of their things blend with so many decorating styles!
Last but not least, there's this absolutely gorgeous pot of faux flame tulips...a good customer of mine had requested that I find her some potted tulips so I ordered these for her...I had to order a minimum of three so after shipping her's off and keeping one for myself, there's one left and I've placed it for sale in my shoppe!
There's only one though cuz I'm keeping mine! LOL!...oh and that cute little candleholder is new in my shoppe as's the Teacup Candle Holder with a Blackened Grubby Nubbie which is also new, they are fabulous candles!...the prim herb rabbits you see there in the cheese box were handmade by my dear friend Karen of Olde Cottage Primitives and given to me as a gift!

I've been mighty darn good to myself haven't I?...I almost feel guilty!...notice I said "almost"...LOL!

Have a most joyous weekend all!

Dear Janet,
I love all of your darling bunnies. Your home looks like you are ready for spring. When we left CA on March 24th,before our accident I was in a rush getting sewing done for my grandchildren. My house was still decorated with all of my St. Patrick Day decorations. I thought I would be back home by April 6th in plenty of time to decorated for Easter and spring. Well, here it is April 20th and I'm still stuck in a hospital in Utah. Now I wish I had taken down my St. Pat. stuff and put out my spring decorations before we left home.

I am from CA. I did not know about Prim decor until I met Linda from Behind my red door. Now I feel like I missed out. I so enjoy seeing all of the beautiful Prim homes like yours.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving me words of encouragement. I was really down recently.I couldn't keep back the tears because I felt like I couldn't face the pain and the long road to recovery any longer..

I asked God to help me find new strength to face my recovery with smiles. I believe that God answered that prayer though my sweet blog friend Linda from Behind my red door... and you.
When I woke up the yesterday morning and I found that Linda had sent so many of her blog friends to cheer me up, I was amazed. My heart is really touched as I read the comments. How can I be sad when so many good people like you, who don't even know me, are praying for me and wishing me well.
I read and re-read the comments. They are an answer to my prayers. Thank you. You have helped me find my smile again.

I hope that you will drop by my blog again. I am happy to get to know you. Thank you for taking the time to brighten my day. Hugs, Lura
