A Joyous Weekend..

Our Easter weekend was filled with joy in many ways…the joy of spending time with family and friends on so many levels…

The weekend began with a trip to the coast of North Carolina…to complete my “Pass It On” project…

To deliver my projects to a fellow blogger to “pass it on”…



The canvas that KariAnne made for me for the “Pass It On” project…

To learn more about the project..see Thistlewood Farm

It was wonderful to see Barb of Grits and Glamour again…

I had the privilege of going to her home and delivering my projects….


Here it is in the driveway of our friend’s home in the same town of Barb..waiting to be delivered…


It was a beautiful day in their neighborhood….


Our friends, the host and hostess…Merry and Steve…we were guests in their home (in Barb’s town)….


Barb…In her beautiful breakfast room..love her in her cap!!
Not only is her breakfast room beautiful, but her entire home is stunning…a true southern gem!


The two of us..I don’t think we were ready for the pic..LOL!


We later went to lunch at this fabulous bakery and brought these home..mini cupcakes in mini baskets..
Even the grass was edible!


I redid the centerpiece area for the Easter dinner..low profile flowers..so we can see each other across the table!


My Granddaughter’s setting..a cute wind-up chick from Pier One…


So the Easter Egg/Scavenger Hunt begins…


She must read the clues to find the eggs…We have a mix of a scavenger hunt and then a regular “hunt”…


The clues…my hubby loves to write riddles for the clues….


Found one!


Hey..there’s one in the topiary…


It was a gorgeous Easter day…


They are even hidden in the garage..






Time for the other Easter goodies…



Yay..I got my Angry birds shirt…


And some goofin’ with mom…


A gift for me from son and family…they know I love birds…a great item from a fabulous place in Chapel Hill..
…A Southern Season..

Hope you all enjoyed your Easter or Passover with your loved ones…

    It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, Shirley! Getting to meet a blogging friend and spending some great time with your family.

  8. Shirley..I love the Easter Egg Hunt with the clues, that was really clever. Looked like Graylyn was having fun figuring it out, and boy, she’s so tall now! I love her little pink dress. She’s such a pretty little girl. Your pink geraniums on the porch are gorgeous! I loved this blog. Pam


  10. I’m so glad you got to enjoy your family for Easter. I love the idea of a combined Easter/Scavenger Hunt. I’ll have to remember that for next year.


  11. I’d say you had a great weekend. Aren’t you glad to still have young ones in the family? I can’t imagine an Easter without an egg hunt!

    I may have to “borrow” Tommy’s scavanger hunt idea for the grandkids next year. As always, I loved your Easter tablescape! I did one similar to yours but of course it doesn’t hold a candle to yours. Hope to see you soon!

  13. I’m so glad you had such a wonderful day! The Easter egg scavenger hunt is a great idea. And of course, I love the tablescape! I have GOT to go to A Southern Season!!!!
