Wisteria and a Lovely Easter Weekend

The Wisteria is just starting to bloom...I love this time of year in the garden.

The blooms are still only about half bloomed but they look amazing already. Purple being one of my favorite colors I love Wisteria.

The below photo is taken out of our living room window. So pretty!

I have been so busy being the Easter Bunny this week. The Easter Bunny who sews.

Instead of a Easter basket I made this tote bag for Janae with all her fur babies on it.

I put candy in it too. She loved it.

I made Easter dresses for Chantel's guinea pigs and she posted this photo on Instagram.

They look so cute!

Chantel Babysat Jaxon on Saturday and as always it was so fun to have a 2 year old around the house!

His Mama has lost her hair now and my brother in law shaved his head too. Thank you to all praying for Kirsten.

Please continue your prayers. She has a hard battle going on right now but I have faith she is going to come through it.

The kids were happy with their Easter baskets...

Jerry and I were pretty happy Janae brought us Easter baskets too :)

We had our second annual dog Easter egg hunt. We put lunch meat into eggs and the dogs find them and eat the lunch meat.

A tradition that is fun for all of us!

I told the kids it looks like a pet faire or something at our house! As we were eating dinner outside I looked around to see all the dogs and the guinea pigs and Janae's bunnies hanging out in the backyard too.

Oh...and I can't forget to show the pretty deviled eggs Chantel made for dinner!

It was a lovely Easter weekend at our home...and I hope it was at yours as well!

Thanks for visiting!

It sounds like you had a wonderful Easter, Sandy! I love the gifts you made. Those little dresses are adorable and the tote turned out great. I love wisteria, too. Always wished I had a pergola it could have draped over. I have my flower plan ready for this year and I will be incorporating lots of purple in.

First and foremost prayers for Kristen! Glad to see that you had a nice Easter. I love all the wisteria that grows wild all around NC and was amazed by it when we moved down here at this time last is truly beautiful. You are lucky to have your own for cuttings. I used it in the decor for the party that I posted last week with a garden theme.
Happy belated Easter wishes to you!

Hi there I have just come across your blog and love it. Can I ask you a question about using Annie Sloan paint on fabric. I am a convert to chalk paint and I want to do a similar project to your desk and chair project but have not been brave enough to paint on fabric. Is it easy to do and how do you seal it?
Thank you Maxine
