A Little Bit of Easter!

I bought a rock…

well… a Stone… A pretty Dark Brown Stone…

polished and engraved with a pretty bird..

Placed it on this greenish blue small plate to put in my bathroom…

It says “Spring” to me!

Easter baskets for Grandkids are made…

This year these were made with remembrances of them when they were little…

and although Grown-Up… 11… almost 14… and 21…

I think they will enjoy going through them…

They know I’m kind of silly!

I loved this stand-up Bunny…

reminding me of older Easter Cards…

It winds up on the back… and music plays “In My Easter Bonnet”!…

Peter Rabbit Memories

I know the Real Reason for Easter…  k5468319

The day my Savior died and arose…

Giving me the chance for my Salvation… which I experienced in my 20’s…

Thank you Jesus!…

but, kids see Easter in another way…

Easter bunnies k3298132, candy x14335027, egg hunts…

and they should!…

They are only children for such a small length of time!…

Well, maybe I will always have a little bit of the child in me…

I unpack my Easter decorations… and they bring a smile to my face…

I imagine we all have some…

hand-me-down from a parent…

something bought when first married…

something that just caught your eye!…

This Bunny Couple… was a find (brand new) at my thrift store…

Mr. Rabbit is busy painting eggs and…

Mrs. Bunny is watering her flowers in her cart…

there is such detail that went into making this cute couple!

About 12″ tall…

Daily Prompt: Bedtime Stories

What was your favorite book as a child? Did it influence the person you are now?

I don’t know if I ever had the book…maybe aGolden Book as they call them…

header

My Mother would tell me stories all of the time… She amazed me with her memory… and she never seemed to tire of telling me stories… at bedtime… at nap time… when I didn’t feel well… just for fun!…

I listened with great attention to every word

One of my favorites was Peter Rabbit

9780307030719

… I later found that the author was Beatrix Potter… and that she was also a wonderful artist

beatrix_potter_photo_article_detail               Beatrix_Potter1943_article_detail

Beatrix Potter when she was young … learning to write and illustrate… and when she was older…

Castle_Cottage_article_detail

Castle Cottage… where she lived with her husband…

Benjamin_Bunny_character_portraitMrs_Tittlemouse_character_portraitSamuel_Whiskers_character_portrait

Other characters illustrated by Beatrix Potter…

My Mom in telling her stories was very demonstrative… Meaning… that I could just picture the characters and places vividly with her voice and descriptions… She seemed to illustrate with her voice…

Peter_Rabbit_character_portraitPeter Rabbit…

Peter Rabbit was a little naughty… getting into Mr. McGregor’s garden… munching on his fresh carrots and lettuce… Wearing his little blue coat that his hard-working Mother had made him…

I liked that his Mother disciplined him, but also showed her love for him…

Maybe his Mother reminded me of mine… and yes… in its small way… influenced me…

Rabbit Tobacco…or Chamomile Tea…

Winter sets in with it’s cold days… and my taste buds reach out to Hot Teak3719087

It can be plain… but, I must have a little sugar k4064426 … which I prefer… or sweetener… if I’m trying to cut calories… and sometimes a spoonful of honey k11423077is just right…

It warms my body… has such a relaxing feeling… and sitting at my computer or watching TV… or reading… it is just right!…

I’m trying some flavored teas at the moment by BIGELOW… No, I’m not a tea connoisseur

I’m sure there are many brands better… but, I’d say these are pretty good

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve tried the “Orange and Spice”… YUMMY!…k4907400

I’ve tried the “Pomegranate Pizzazz”… quite goodk5876806

There’s also “I Love Lemon”… which might be my next experiencek7009564

There’s “Mint Medley”… a blend of Spearmint & Peppermintrefreshing!…k7710129

Last night I drank “Cozy Chamomile”… right before bed…

k9248127  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I had heard it’s a calming tea… for “quiet moments”…

I slept like a baby!…

Of course drinking Chamomile Tea brought up memories of my Mom telling me the story of Peter Rabbit…by Beatrix Potter

200px-Peter_Rabbit_first_edition_1902a

Just loved that story being read by my Mom… actually… she told it from memory… I wasn’t drinking the tea… but, her voice was just as soothingk0299168

The mischievous and disobedient young Peter Rabbit is chased by Mr. McGregor whose garden Peter had made his way into…

After finally getting home… his mother doses him with camomile tea and puts him to bed… I’m sure to relax him!…
