**Happy Pink Saturday*&*Happy Easter**

The store was so busy today with carts piled with food and Easter grass in all colors and cartons of eggs to be eaten and dyed.

I always loved Easter when I was a child and passed on to mine all the fun things to do that I grew up with. They had so much messy fun dying the eggs and like all parents, we were up way before any of the little ones to play Easter Bunny and hide them.

This year we are staying home, just the two of us. Calls will be made to our children and grandchildren, but hopefully, the sun will be out and it will be warm enough to work in the gardens and have potato salad and ham.

I found I was not very prepared for Pink Saturday as this week just flew by too fast. We just finished an Easter Swap on Etsy Cottage Style where many beautiful and sweet things were swapped. I thought I would share what my partner, Molly, from Fluer de Bee sent to me.

An Easter Egg all glittered in German Glass glitter with the surprise of five little yellow chicks inside.

A darling glittered bunny

Wishing you all a Happy Easter!

ahaha! I just posted the pic you took of the Egg too! I can't find the memory card I took all the photos of it are on, so I borrowed yours! Ahh so happy you loved it. Eeek those chicks are so fun!

Loads of kisses! I will have to take photos of the stuff you sent me for next Pink Sat!

I liked reading about your childhood memories, and how much you loved easter and all that goes wigh it. I too still love this time of year, loved easter as a child and still love it best of all now as an adult. I love the pastel colors of the season, the bunnies and the chicks, ducklings, and all the sweet precious things associated with the holiday. And the egg dying, just finished up 3 dozen eggs with my daughter yesterday, so now we have lots and lots of brightly colored eggs to fill the baskets with, and even as old as my kids are, they still like to hunt for chocolate eggs on Easter morning. I am glad that i passed down my love of the holiday to them, it keeps it all young in my own heart too!! Happy Easter, Debby
