Spiritual Sundays: Happy Resurrection Day

East and West

Have a Blessed Easter
 
Matthew 24:26, 27
"So if they say to you, 'Behold, He is in the wilderness,' do not go out, or, 'Behold, He is in the inner rooms,' do not believe them.
"For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be
 


Matthew 24:44
So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Easter Pink Saturday

Happy Easter Everyone!
The perfect  season for Pink
and I'm joining Beverly and all the others at Pink Saturday 
 
This depression glass divided luncheon plate is from a set that belonged to my mother.
 
 
This Chrystal bowl which I bought at an auction seemed like a good match.

 
Next came this lovely collection of ceramic eggs made
and given to my mother by a close friend 
  
 
Some may remember when many were taking a test to see what their personal color palette was; Summer, Winter, Spring or Fall.
My results were Spring
Maybe the test was right because these pastels colors make me happy.
  
 
My simple kitchen table is cheerfully waiting for the arrival of Easter.

Fences atMuldoon

Joining Good Fences Friday
A wild aster the RG didn't weed out.   To him, nothing is a weed
and from experience he knew it would be lovely.

Spring Struggles to Appear

Joining OUTDOOR Wednesday  

I heard a rumor that it was Spring
But no evidence to be found.
I checked the calendar
and sure enough the first day of Spring had come and gone.
Well at least I had some reminders around the house
lest I should forget what Spring was all about
 

There was a lovely Lily
 
And the late afternoon light reflecting on these pieces
was encouraging with a promise of warm temps
And I was sure I had heard ducks and geese
but it couldn't have been these.
 So I ventured outside and this wreath was lovely 
but the ground was white.

And the . . . this week the temps rose above 40
and hope returned when I spied this brave soul

and these daffodils ready to burst forth

even a few tiny hyacinths were getting brave
on the south side of our home
 
I guess the calendar was right after all.

Sadie Visits Blue Monday

Blue Monday Instructions Joining Sally for Blue Monday.
 
For Blue Monday I chose to share some "Blue" from my 'little room'. The term 'little room' comes from special family members who used it for the all purpose rooms in their homes.
I have a passion for Family Research and one of my branches is of Dutch origin. Thus the combination of blue and windmills in this corner of atMuldoon.
The little lady on the left was a gift from my Grandmother on my 12th Birthday.
The postcard, salt & pepper shakers and gal in the back are thrifting finds. Oh and also the silver spoon which I see needs a little polishing.

More thrift finds. The paddles turn freely on the little windmill in the center

Not sure if this happy couple are Dutch. They may be Eastern European but they are welcome in our family melting pot.

This picture with the windmill brings me serenity
as  I envision a quiet misty morning at the harbor.
My mom was a quilter while I prefer to do the piecing
and was always happy to finish the project for me.
And meet Sadie who is floating in front of the toile valance that also depicts windmills.
Sadie doesn't always reside here. She is a decoy which several years ago began appearing in strange and unusual places around our lawn and home.
The RG (retired gardener) and I were playing this little game long before the 'elf on the shelf'
appeared on the scene :).
 
 
Thanks for stopping by. If anyone is also interested in family research, I recently started a new blog where I share my experiences and reflections on my family research journey. https://familyresearchandme.blogspot.com
