Today, I simply wanted to share with you this special card I made and sent to Tina for Easter:
She collects these sweet Dutch postcards (and I hope she didn't already have this one!)
This one just so happens to have been mailed as an Easter greeting from Arthur and Esther to Mrs. Harlow in Greenville, Michigan one hundred years ago.
So, my Easter wishes for you, our faithful readers, is simply this:
"I wish there would come to you JOY as there ought to should".

Easter time at Nelson's Columbia Candy Kitchen in Columbia State Historic Park brings with it all sorts of wonderful treats!
I seriously wanted one of those chocolate covered divinity eggs with my name on it.
But I didn't get one.

I have to say, I simply kind of fell in love with these cute kitties after having seen a couple of them in a local thrift store. Much to my chagrin, they were not for sale. The dreaded "For Display Only" thing - you know. I snapped a photo (not a very good one) of them. They are not in the best condition, but had they been for sale at the right price, I'd have bought them anyway.
Here they are, below:
Calico Critters Puss In Boots, to keep your boots upright when stored . Cutest. Idea. Ever. I only WISH that I could re-create them!
I was on a quest to find one that I could make my own, and I'm happy to report that I am now the owner of this adorable red calico one seen below:
They were also made in green - I found some photos online:
What a cute and useful Calico Critter he is!
Made in the 1980's:
The original price from Lord & Taylor was $12.00.
I mean, come on....how could I resist this face?

Hi there people persons. It is Chessie and Ishi, Tina's cats. We took a really fine walk the other day, it was warm and clear and the flowers smelled so good!
Ishi was first out the door and down the stairs.
Ishi checked for lizards and waited on the rock wall for Chessie to get his act in gear.
Okay, now we're talking.
These rocks smell really interesting. Something has been living out here.
When we take a walk we really take the time to stop and smell... not always the flowers, though.
I think that is a deer over there under the scrub oaks.
Mom, make him go first!
Ishi are you still smelling that rock????
The fox and deer will have to fend for themselves for a while.
