Hello! Welcome to my "new" blog! I figured, since I have changed the name of my blog, I needed to change my blog's URL too! Bunny Rose Cottage is a part of my past. A very good part. I had so many wonderful memories in that home and in that part of my life. But my life has changed, a lot. And it is time to change my blog address too, not just the name :) Thank you so much for finding me here. I hope you will continue to follow my journey, here on this blog. I love all of my followers and I don't wamt tp lose any of you :) I merged all of the posts from my other blog to this one, so it is basically the same blog but with a different web address :) Love to you all and again, thank you!!

inspiration through the winter part 2
Wow, can you believe it is February??
Twenty four more days until March :) In my last post, I had started a little series about being inspired during the winter. I cant be outside, doing the things I want to do right now. But I can plan for spring and create pretty things inside my home to celebrate my favorite season.
Last winter, I purchased a book by Jeanne d' Arc Living called Fairytale Easter. It is my absolute favorite book. Full of inspiration and eye candy. But it is also full of information!
My very very favorite holiday is Easter. As the passage in the book says, it is the most important celebration in the Christian church. Easter means so many things to me. It is a time to rejoice. I like to celebrate as grand as most people do for Christmas. Easter is not near as commercialized. I feel more free to celebrate the way I want to as opposed to the way I feel I have to. I don't get that feeling at Christmastime, sadly. I feel "forced" with Christmas and the true meaning gets lost. Trying to be as good as everyone else with decor and things (mostly because of blogs!!).
I adore bunnies and have nearly 200 of them around my house! Including three live ones :) Bunnies are stress relievers, so calming. You see little baby bunnies out and about in the spring which is a time of rebirth and new beginnings. Another reason I love spring and Easter so much.
Hard to believe but in Fairytale Easter it says bunnies used to be a sign of evil! How could those precious little fur balls ever be considered evil?? Thankfully that is no longer the case!! But even if it was, I would never believe it!
Aren't the bunny eggs above cute? Love them :)
This photo is actually from my JDA perpetual calendar, Days To Remember. But it is so beautiful. They have the prettiest eggs!! I am so inspired by them. And you cant find eggs like that in stores. I do own a set of JDA Easter eggs. They are to die for!!! I will show them closer to Easter. I showed them last February on my blog also.
Another gorgeous egg! Sigh..love the use of vintage lace and papers on this one. It matches the napkins I used on my puffy hearts. Luckily, I still have some of them :)
Last year I redid 24 paper mache eggs. They were the size of regular chicken eggs. This year, I wanted to do some of the large egg boxes shown in the book. So far, I have bought two of them that are already white. I'd like to get a few more.
We are gearing up for more snow starting tonight. The perfect time to create spring things :)
Thank you for visiting me today!!
