Happy Easter & A Giveaway


He is Risen Indeed!

A favorite Cross Eyed Cricket piece from many years ago - yet I never tire of it.


A New Finish
design by Country Rustic Primitives designed by Jenny Hoffman
and some of the pansies that survived last week's snow.

And on to the giveaway...


Each year the Easter children's message is about the resurrection butterfly.
How Jesus was like caterpillar when he lived his life like us on earth. When he died and was buried, he was wrapped in burial cloths like a cocoon. But then Jesus rose from the dead like a beautiful butterfly.

This little giveaway celebrates the resurrection butterfly with this little pinkeep with vintage embroidery, a bit of vintage flowered ribbon, some old mother of pearl buttons and an antique skeleton key.
Everyone is welcome to enter. Simply leave a comment on this post or email me at pgagliardi9@hotmail.com with "Resurrection" in the subject line and tell what your favorite part of Easter is. 
I will pick a winner on Friday, April 25th.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
~Matthew 28:5-7

Wishing you a Happy Easter!
Blessings, Patti

Easter is a joyful time of year for myself, and my family. When we can all be together to celebrate new life, and new beginnings.

Such a lovely piece - almost looks as if it were done as stamped work a LONG time ago!!!! My favorite part of Easter was coloring eggs on the Saturday before Easter - it was a tradition in my home growing up and today I still love the look of different designs!!!

My favorite part of Easter is to know that Christ is Risen and after a long winter our surroundings come alive once more! Such a renewal for my soul!

Easter usually is a very bright, sunny, green and beautiful day. I enjoy sitting outside most of the day - after a long winter cooped up it is most welcomed. I am always reminded this day of death and rebirth by listening to and looking at my natural surroundings. It is soul fulfilling.
