Show and Tell - More Spring!

I am so glad it is Friday! One more treatment for the week and two glorious days to try to get perked up! I have been visiting blogs, but not too much posting. Today for Show and Tell at Kelli's I thought I would show a little more spring popping up at my home.
You all know Kathy at Mimi's Garden. She is an amazing artist and I begged her to please do a picture with a nest for me. I got an amazing package the other day and this was in it! A beautiful robins nest. I miss the robins from Michigan. We do not see them here in AZ. I just love this gorgeous painting.
Then my husband knew I was feeling a little down. I don't do blah very good. He surprised me with this beehive rope candle. Now when he buys something he always says it is his part of stimulating the economy!!

It has a beautiful copper holder and extinguishes itself! So pretty!

This is truly my favorite Easter decoration. I have had it for years. My friend Ro at A Hint of Home made this for me when my kids were little. It is our little egg house with me, my husband, our son and daughter. It always reminds me of the Weebuls the kids played with. (By the way, the picture behind that you sorta can see was also from Kathy YEARS ago! - I hang on to things a longgg time!

This little duck is also a fav of mine. I just love that "antiqued" look. You know, I just am not finding the same "cute" holiday stuff this year compared to past years. I don't know if the stores aren't stocking as much...Do any of you notice that also???
Well, I am going to enjoy my weekend. We are having absolutely beautiful weather and I want to enjoy it before it gets too hot!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend also!!

Everything looks so springy! Isn't it fun to get rid of all the heavy and dark things of winter and begin to think of all the light and bright things of spring. Love it. Hugs, Marty

Visiting you from Kelli's Show and Tell!

Wow - your friend is VERY talented, what a sweet painting. I love robins too.

I think MY favorite at your place is the candle holder that extinguishes itself. Very cool!

Hi Ceekay;
what a cute candle, and a thoughtful husband.
You mentioned that you missed the robins from Michigan, I am originally from Michigan. I was born in the city (Detrioit) but lived most of my life in a country area (Ray, formally known as Romeo...there is still a Romeo but the area I lived in got changed to Ray, MI)
Have a good weekend,
Brenda

Andrea posted something about you today.

Picket said...

Hey girl...love that gorgeous painting..I saw my first Robin of the year a few weeks ago..we get to see them as they pass thru. Your treasures are so pretty and I am like you..this new stuff for Easter just doesn't call me...I love things to look old and vintage.
Yes I have the tray that came with my little bunny tea set..just didn't use it...I keep mine out all year cause you can turn it around to just the flower side! Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great weekend!

Hello CeeKay

thanks so much for the nice comment you left on my blog.

all your decorations are so sweet, and I esp. like the bird and nest painting.

hope you have a good weekend.

niartist said...

Oh Spring! I wish it'd hurry up and get here! :) Hope you're feeling better, and what a great gift - that rope beeswax candle. I don't know that I've ever seen one of those! :) Have a great weekend!

The Berry's Patch said...

Hi Ceekay,

I love the little things that Ro paints. Those little painted eggs are darling! I agree that there are not a lot of cute Easter decorations out right now. Of course, I really don't need anymore but they are sure fun to buy. :-)

Leann said...

Only 2 more to go ~ that's fantastic. Hope that this weekend leaves you feeling refreshed.

I love the candle - that is truly a treasure. You DH is the treasure behind the treasure!

char72 said...

I did notice there isn't as much cute stuff for Easter in the stores. Maybe with the economy they figure people won't be buying much. Love all your special things featured here, especially the antiquey ducky and the beautiful bird picture.
Happy Pink Saturday.

Your Easter stuff is too cute! I think Target had the best Easter stuff this year, but most of it's gone now. Boo hoo!

tardevil said...

P.S. What a sweet hubby you have. I've never seen a beehive candle, but that is COOL!!!

Lady Katherine said...

I am catching up, I love the new couch. The eggs are darling! The ducky too. The bee hive is so wonderful! What a great surprise! I love the robins nest. Lucky you! So great. I hope you are feeling great, and enjoying spring! Tell your Hubby he can call mine. I love to have a beehive! lol
