Happy Easter, Happy Spring!

It's been raining steadily all day here in Pennsylvania, but as I write this, the sun is finally peeking through the clouds, making every thing outside shimmer and sparkle - one of those "ahhhhhhh!" moments, where you have to stop whatever you're doing and just smile at the beauty of it all.

The most recent nod to springtime is this whimsical trio of tiny trinket boxes, listed just now on Etsy. They're selling individually, but I almost hate to break them up - I can just picture them on a dresser, desk or table all together.... *UPDATE* - SOLD

Tomorrow will be a quiet day for us, and very non-traditional in terms of Easter dinner. Between John's low salt diet and my aversion to eating meat, the Easter feast will be a pasta dish, accompanied by a fresh baked french bread and a glass of red wine. Not sure what to do about dessert. Those cupcakes (see previous post) are GONE - or gone from HERE anyway, hehe (dropped them off at a friend's house, lest like everything else, they show up on my hips!) So.....maybe some fat free tapioca pudding for dessert tomorrow. ;)

Okay, back to work for me now, but I'll leave you with this artsy little clip from my latest favorite CD, Neko Case's "Fox Confessor Brings the Flood"....Been listening to this one a lot as I paint, and need to pick up her latest, "Middle Cyclone" soon!

Wishing everyone who celebrates a Happy and Blessed Easter tomorrow!!
