Simple Joys and Easter Joy

These are some simple joys of my Easter weekend.

Knowing my husband was thinking of me is a major joy in my life. He brought me this cheerful little pot of yellow tulips and a sweet Easter card.

We visited a new consignment shop/boutique in the small town near where we live and saw many treasures there. Its located right across the street from my favorite thrift store. This new store has charm and a very sweet owner and will be a new shopping haunt for sure. She offered to let me display one of my pocketbooks in her store and take no commission if it sold. This would be a great way to advertise my wares.

We bought this old tin with sunflowers on it. I will put it in my little sewing room which already has a sunflower theme. It will be great to hold thread, ribbon or bobbins.

We also found this for my sewing room to hang bags on. It is metal and has hand painted chickens.

Sewing brings me much joy. I love to make handmade items to give away and this is a clothespin bag made for a friend.

The most profound joy of a Christian is knowing that Jesus died on the cross for us and rose from the dead on Easter morning. Nothing can surpass that joy!

Happy Easter to everyone!

Hi Debbie,
How cute. Now when I see sunflowers I will think of you. I wonder who the clothes pin bag is for? :)
Sounds like a wonderful day.
Happy Easter,

Hi! I really love to read your blog and I just wanted to tell you the grocery bags look great and I can't wait to try to make a few. I don't get to sew very often, since I have four children, but every once in a while, I will just take the time to do it. Have a nice day!
