~SWEET EASTER PILLOWS and Other Cottage Finds~


Did you know that Easter Sunday can fall on 35 possible dates between March 22nd and April 25th?  It last fell on March 22nd in the year 1818, and will not do so again until 2285. It landed on March 23 in 2008 (way too early for me!), but will not do so again until 2160. Easter last fell on the latest possible date on April 25th in 1943.  But, this year it will fall just one day before that, April 24th, 2011.

When Easter Sunday comes too early in the year the ground in Oklahoma is still mostly brown from our frosty winter weather.  Green grass is a must for this Cali native and so I'm extra excited that it falls late in April this year.  Who can have an Easter Egg Hunt when the earth feels like dry, cracked hay under your feet?

I started early with my Easter Website Offerings this year and I've loved having more time to design and plan new things!  The Pillows you see above will be available later today with more planned for early next week!  The Altered Art Easter Cards, Hang Tags and sweet Tea Bags are already available with new styles coming up in time for Easter gift giving!

I hope you'll find time to enter my Giveaway that is currently running for some of my Easter Pretties.  You can find more information HERE or you can find a link at the top of this page on the left!
Enter Today!

I hope you are having a great day!  I'm over the moon excited about our French Door being installed in our breakfast room this weekend.  We are praying it doesn't rain so everything will run smooth!  Thanks for all your sweet comments yesterday!  Choosing to remove the window seat was tough...but we are loving the extra space!

Love to you...

I've always wanted one, along with the French doors!!LOL

Hi Sweetie! I did not know that about Easter but found it very interesting, since Easter is my very favorite Holiday. I dont like it when it is in Match either! I want sun, greenery and a little warmth with my Easter. And I am so glad that my baby will be here just in time for it this year AND, April 24th is also my mom's birthday!
I am dying over those gorgeous pillows, I want them all!! Sooo adorable, you are so talented. My bunnies that you painted stay out year round, I love them sooo much!!
Big hugs,

Being a late March baby, my birthday was always in the general neighborhood of Easter and consequentially, from the time I was a little girl, I was given stuffed bunnies because of it. So, I have always had a love affair with all things bunny - and these pillows are just so wonderfully sweet. I'm particularly fond of the crosstitch one! Your altered tags, etc are precious too! It's always a sweet treat to visit your site!

And yes, green grass is an Easter must!!

Hugs & Blessings,

I love "watching" your kitchen redo.
April is my birthday month and I love it when Easter is in April. Makes my birthday extra special.
Of course your creations are just awesome!

As usual, you always have lovely things on your posts. Those bunnies are so precious. I can't wait to see your new French doors in your dining room. Thanks for telling us about Easter. I had never heard that before. I hope your Easter is a really good one.
