Some Pretties for Easter

I ran out yesterday to do my weekly grocery shopping and to pick up a few last minute things for the kids' classroom Easter parties. While out, I stopped in at Michaels craft store and the Dollar Store.

Boy, am I ever glad I did! I went in for scrapbook papers and would you just look at what I found?? I saw this pretty box at Michaels several weeks ago but I didn't want to pay what they were asking for it. It just so happens though, that it was marked down - YIPPEE!! So I decided to go ahead and get it. And then, as I turned the corner, I saw this beautiful clock and little wall hook and scrolly white frame! Oh my gosh, everything was marked down 40% and I had a Michael's gift card!! So, needless to say, I came home yesterday with wonderful treasures that will go perfectly in my new kitchen!!

Then, I wandered into the Dollar Store for some gift bags as well as a few goodies to fill them with for my kids' classroom Easter parties. While in there I found these adorable little marshmallow bunnies and chicks. I got a couple of bags for my candy/dessert buffet that I'm going to do for Easter. You see, hubby and I gave up all sweets/candy/desserts etc... for the Lenten Season. That means nothing sweet for me until Easter Sunday. I have been craving something sweet for so long!! I thought it would be fun to go all out on Easter Sunday with sweet little candies, cupcakes, and other pretty desserts on a buffet for everyone to enjoy.

Have a blessed day everyone!!

Hey Sister Hare! Glad to hear from you. I just got a visual of you and Hubby, standing over the dessert buffet, doing the Cookie Monster "mohn-mwohn-mohn"...crumbs flying everywhere! LOL!

Our Easter was super.

Be blessed.
