Decorating for Easter

Posted by Francesca

Well, we don’t know about your house, but ours is turning into an Easter extravaganza!  We’ve been told that Martha has invited a lot of parents and their children for Easter lunch and a good old-fashioned Easter egg hunt.  That’s going to be fun!

Francesca, you're so silly.  These are not our toys!  The house is being decorated for Easter.  This table is covered in bunnies.  Because rabbits have multiple births, they're considered a symbol of fertility and rebirth.

Right, and eggs have long been considered the seed of life.  Christians regard the egg as a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Oh, Franny!  It's a felt carrot filled with...sniff sniff...chocolates!  Don't you remember that crafter Kristin St. Clair just made them on Martha's Show?

Let's see what else we have in the bins to decorate with.  Say, Sharkey, we have a lot more fuzzy bunnies and chicks!  Should we put some on the dining table?

There, right next to the chocolate bunnies.  Those little guys sure are cute, don't you think?

Oh yes, we definitely need more chicks!  Let me have that one and then Sharkey can put it on the table with the others!

  • Good Morning F & S

    Your house looks so festive with all the Easter decorations. If Jude is walking look out - she is going to just love that table with all the stuffed bunnies and chicks. Does Martha let you join in the egg hunt?

    Our house is all decorated and the eggs are all stuffed for the hunt. Mom hides so many eggs that sometimes she forgets where she hid them and one of us dogs will show up a day or so later with one in our mouth. I can't wait till Easter all the kids will be here it will be lots of fun. I must tell you I received the most BEAUTIFUL Easter card in the mail yesterday from my boyfriend Basil. I have it displayed in the center of the table for everyone to see. His mom is very talented, I'll cherish this card forever :)

    Have a Happy Easter everyone!!!

  • Very Pretty Ladies!
    We've got our baskets & bunnies out, too. There is still a little candy left over from last week. We already had our family party. Mimi has her annual physical today. She's been eating hard boiled eggs all week, wonder how what cholesterol count is going to look like..could be a YIKES!
    We have a touch of frost this morning & for some unknown reason, I'm frisky today!
    Have a blessed holy weekend everybody.
    Your Pal,
    Rebel

  • Hello Ladies,
    At Christmas you say, "the stockings were hung by the chimney with care." But what do you say at Easter, "the carrots are waiting the bunny's arrival.? Help me on this one, can't come up with a good saying. I guess, "here comes Peter Cottontail," is a good one. It looks like you girls will have fun with little Jude. What is her brother, Truman like? Mom and I have been enjoying these "cc" days. It started as one, and we liked it sooooo much, we are on our 3rd day today. You see, Dad is putting a new manifold and muffler on the car, so we are here at home and Mom and I love it. Yesterday we even had spa time in the shower with aromatherapy to help me with my sinuses and breathing. It is allergy season for sure. Also, thank you Cora Belle for the Brad Pitt comment. I sure was a hot shot yesterday. You have been doing an excellent job of racoon patrol also. None have dared come near my yard for days now. What a releaf!!!! I was glad to hear from Kirby that he is enjoying his vacation. I had to laugh at the photos sent in to Mama Martha's show yesterday. Did you all see the Frenchies---Barbie, Midge, Ken and somebody else? Four Frenchies with bunny ears---now that was a sight. Everyone have a great Easter and eat lots of treats for old Basil Boy.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Morning F & S & GK & Glue Squad, Where is everyone this morning???? What a great job decorating, bet you can hardly wait for the festivites to begin. Lots to do today in preparation for Easter and just don't know where to begin; oh my! Nice cool crisp morning here in the NE; but hoping it will be a little warmer for the weekend.

  • HI!

  • Hi Girl Friends,&G.K.+ Glue Squad, You girls sure did have fun decorating the living room in Martha's beautiful home with wonderful Laura! I loved seeing all those lovely decorations you displayed and I'm sure sweet little Jude will love to see all of them! Sure hope you have a wonderful Easter Sunday! Maddox, I certainly am a wonderer! I always wonder about anything that is moved to other places inside and outside and have to check them all out! I wonder about noises and smells outside and yesterday I smelled that someone had been in the back yard and I went crazy running around with my hair standing up! Nice to hear from you Nicky and Kris-I love kitties! Zoe, how nice you got an Easter card from your boy friend handsome Basil! Rebel, sure hope Mimi has a good physical today and hope you stay warm! Will check back later to see how all the rest of you are doing today! Sure hope all of you have a wonderful, happy, healthy, safe weekend and Happy Easter to all! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • I have not had time to decorate...with all the running around to doctors and taking care of next door kitty, I actually forgot to get ready for Easter.
    Speaking of cholesterol yesterday I went and had a Life Line artery testing done with hubby...my hubby who eats all the bad food was fine and I'm almost a veterinarian tested as High Risk for a heart attack, this blew me away since there aren't any heart problems in the family...so much for all the Easter candy that I have :-( hmmm, maybe that's the problem!

    Well Mimi with all the eggs you ate I hope you can hold your gas ha ha ;-) poor Vet. ;-)

    I do hope everyone has a Blessed Easter, for me it is an important event. And those that celebrate "The Festival of the Unleavened Bread"(Matzo) for Passover may your hearts be filled with Joy.

    delia & Kitty =^, ,^=

    Thank You Lynn & Basil for the Beautiful e-card, so thoughtful of you...it's awesome!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Boy did it rain last night. We are parked right next to a small river which comes right out of those mountains. When it rains hard, the river comes up and almost overflows. Daddy said that if it came over the bank he would hook up and pull out. We are still here so the river didn't get that high last night. We are looking at a clear sky today and cooler temps.
    Catch you later, Kirby

  • You two look like you are having the best time helping Laura decorate for Easter.

    So nice to receive such a sweet e-card from Basil and his Mom Lynn. :smile: I hope that everyone has a wonderful, beautiful, relaxing weekend. Happy Easter and Passover everyone! :smile:

  • Since my nickname is "bunny" I especially like today's entry!

    Will you be helpers in hunting for eggs?

    Will the Easter Bunny hide some near the donks? :)

    Adorable decorations! I especially like the pink bun buns.

    Health and happiness to everyone in the Stewart family!

    gail (aka) bunny (aka) donk lover! :)

  • Hi Girls,
    What beautiful things on display at your house for Easter. The families that visit you will have a fantastic time. So, where was GK to help with the Easter displays?
    I am so late today. Rebel, how did Mimi make out at the doctor? I hope things are all good. Karen had surgery on her mouth today. She had over 20 stitches in her mouth. No Easter meal for her unless it is soup.
    I was glad that Chloe's mom informed us of her progress. Good for you Chloe, keep it up
    Zoe, I know Basil is your boyfriend bur just so you know, if I had your address I would gave sent you an Easter card also. I would have sent all the Glue Squad members, fur and human kind, Easter Cards. Valentine Cards, Christmas Cards, etc.
    I am so glad Kirby is able to give us updates on his trip. Basil, keep on enjoying your CC days. You deserve them.
    Well everyone, I want to check on Karen so I will check back later. I hope everyone has a great weekend
    Happy Easter to all of you
    Love.
    Maddox

  • Just wanted to say we LOVE these photos - so cute of F&S! Happy Easter everyone! Many Blessings.... hope Baby Jude especially enjoyes her Easter and Chocolate Bunnies!
    Nicky and Kris

  • Happy Easter, Girls!

    I hope the Easter Bunny is good to you two and G.K. I'm excited to see what he brings me--I'm hoping for a new squeaky toy from Petsmart. I know, I know...Santa JUST brought me some new toys Christmas, but, as you two can attest, a girl can NEVER have too many toys.

    Thanks for the Easter history. It's so important that people remember what Easter is all about: The incredible gift of God's love, Jesus Christ!

    Much love to you and yours,
    Poco

  • Hi Francesca, Sharkey, Mr. G.K. and all my glue squad friends,
    Wow the Easter decorations are beautiful! We have some pretty eggs in the house too and might have a dog easter egg hunt later around the yard with a biscuit prize! Cora Belle you would love it, barking and finding all the eggs. Zoe did you get any Easter clothes or bandanas to dress up in? Missy Chow I am sure you look gorgeous with the new grooming. Basil our brave knight we hope you continue to enjoy more comfort and cuddle time. It is nice to see Dudley likes kitties. I live with a white cat named Herman and a persian James Dean. Well off to sleep and rest until the dog easter hunt! Happy and Blessed Easter to all my glue squad buddies, especially Nicky, Kris, Maddox, Rebel, Chloe and Kitty. Love you Basil,XXX Abby the pug frenchie

  • ..Maddox, take good care of our buddy Karen..wish I were there to help fix her some soup...love, Cora-Belle
