CHOCOLATE BUNNIES AND EASTER EGGS....

April 11 Posting... PLEASE DO ALL YOU CAN TO HELP THE FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER.....
WE WANT IT
G.O.N.E. !!!!!
*

OUR thanks to Beverly over at HOW SWEET THE SOUND
for hosting this luscious PINK SATURDAY..
and our thanks to EVERYONE that plays along with us on this PINK day...
and
THANKS for coming by to see me..

Please send your sweet prayers up to Heaven....
and remember to thank HIM for dying for our sins....

WELL...I pretty much am
in LUV
with CHOCOLATE EASTER EGGS....
*
The happiest EASTER ever to all of you!
*

This beautiful little ceramic Easter Egg Box came from the
DOLLAR TREE...only one dollar...I bought this yellow and a green one...
The little cute Egg plate I picked up at our HOSPICE THRIFT STORE
for only a few dollars...
Those eggs are waiting to be boiled and colored for grands
Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday....
We only have 1 little one left but the others still love
the THRILL OF THE HUNT for that special
PRIZE EGG that will have a little spending money in it !
*
*

My little Chocolate bunnie is about the only one
I have to decorate with at Easter time...
*

OOO, oops...I almost forgot my little white
BUNNIE LAMP...
He needs a black and white checked shade like
MONA'S daughter has on HER cute bunnie lamp...!!
*
I LOVE the color of these little PEEPS...
Hey...wait a minute...
I love PEEPS !
pure heavenly sugar!!
*
And, oh, yes.....my little "out all year 'round"
bunnie....
He didn't have an Easter ribbon to wear and I say...
"LEOPARD is class...ANYTIME !! "
*



Every time I even LOOK at a chocolate bunny, I think of
this silly thing !
hahahaaaaa

i love it
*

My, my....look at all the
GRANDKID EASTER CANDIES...
There's Crispy Chocolate Bunnies...White Chocolate Bunnies...
all kinds of Chocolate Easter Egg candies...
Some other blogger said that
"Grandma's could get their grands on a sugar high
and then send them home!!" Haha...
KEEP IN MIND THAT we have A LOT (10) of grandkids....
hence so much chocolate deliciousness !!!!! :O)
*
The Russell Stover Coconut Creme Candy Eggs...
oh honey....
*
And, would you believe that this little CHOCOLATE birdnest
with jelly bean eggs is the ONLY nest and eggs I have in
my entire Sweet Nothings Cottage ??

*(gasp)
*NOTE...I, just today, bought the CA'UTEST
nest and eggs from Target...
Salt and Pepper shakers and just precious..
will have to show those a little later...
*

AND THESE...???
MINE....ALL MINE !!
*
*
AND....OF COURSE...
WE KNOW THAT
EASTER
IS NOT ABOUT
CHOCOLATE BUNNIES AND EASTER EGGS....
*
*

I hope and pray that you and your loved ones will have the most blessed Easter ...

XO bj

Canna I be one of your grandkids? Huh? :) Would you just look at those goodies?? My grandchildren are all grown too...and the little ones are back East..the only little one is not walking yet..so..no Easter Egg hunt this year...things are changing. I will be a very old lady by the time the next generation of little ones gather for egg hunts.
I had to smile about that lamp shade..I agree..it would look GREAT! Hugs to you, bj. Have a wonderful and peaceful Easter...

Hello BJ...

I sure did enjoy all of your Easter pretties!!! Sheeshhh Girl, it's nearly 11pm here at my place and now I'm really craving some of that pure "heavenly sugar" after seeing all of your photos! Hehe!!!

We all have lots and lots of fun at Easter with our cute little bunnies and sweet goodies...but I am thanking the Lord (with you) for what Easter is really about!!! I'm thankful that Jesus died for my sins and that he rose from the dead...He's alive...so that I might live also!!!

Sending you and your family my very best wishes and blessings for a wonderful Easter!!!

What a sweet post! Happy Easter to you friend. We are off to make a quick drive to Dallas and back.

Beth in NC said...

You are the perfect Grandma! I know your babies love you!

I can't believe I haven't posted pictures of my bunnies, nests, eggs, etc ...! Maybe it will be a "spring" post vs. an Easter one (ha).

My daughter and I made haystack "nests" last night and put little candy eggs in them. Maybe I'll get some pics of them too.

Happy Easter my friend! I am thankful that JESUS LIVES. Hallelujah!

Claudia said...

Happy Pink Saturday, BJ. Such wonderful goodies and bunnies at your house this Easter!

jeanne said...

Good morning BJ, your Easter offerings today are yummy and pretty and cute and fun and I want your M & M's. NOW. I think they would be great with my coffee. NO? I disagree. I do agree that your post as always, is delightful. I love the bunny lamp. One birds nest with eggs? Not normal for your cottage look. You better start thrifting soon. LOL.

Blessings and a Happy Easter Greeting to you and your special family.

Love and hugs...Jeanne

dana said...

Good Pink Sat. Morning to YOU, BJ!!!

First--happy belated BD to Mr. Sweet (he does look like a sweetie!) and happy 49th anniversary to you two!! I can hardly wait until we celebrate your 50 next year!!!

YOU are a fun grandma, too! You get some great goodies for your little grands!

I loved looking at your decorations! I especially LOVE that lamp--and I think I have one very much like it in my work room (sewing, craft, JUNK!) in the basement. I bought it at my friend's shop---you know I am a bunny lover, too! I also have that Target S/P set--thanks to my sweet friend who gave it to me!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a joyous Easter! Dana

LADY JANE'S EMPORIUM said...

Dear BJ..Easter Blessings...to you and your family! Birthday wishes to your Dear and Happy Anniversary...whew...so much celebrating at your place that I hope no-one notices I nibbled on a peep....
Your family is so lucky to have you...and so are we....and as always...a prayer for the cure! XO

Barbara said...

Wow..Birthdays, Anniversary and Easter...what a joyous time for all of you. Hope you didn't notice I took a piece of candy.

Thanks for the pink reminder that we need to pray for those with cancer.

Happy Easter and May God Bless you and your family.

Good Morning BJ, It sounds like you've got it all together for Easter. Your grands aren't spoiled, are they? I love your bunny lamp - shade and all! I'm having an egg hunt around here for the college kids (Golden Eggs filled with green) and it will be worth their while! Hope you have a Happy Easter and a Happy Pink Saturday! ~ Robyn

Smilingsal said...

I'm not sure how the bunnies and eggs overtook Easter. I think it started with the idea on new birth. I wish for you a Blessed Easter as you celebrate our risen Lord.

g said...

What sweet and silly goodies. I love them all, You're going to have a wonderful holiday spoiling everyone!!!

Turquoise Peeps!! Wowee - now I'm jealous.

Have a great Easter, a wonderful Pink Saturday, and a fantastic weekend, BJ.

Jean, I do hope Dollar Tree hasn't sold out of those darling little Easter eggs! I've just gotta have some to go with my little bunnies that belonged to Mother and Daddy! Loved them! Oooooh how you do spoil those grands, but ain't it fun! Of course that last picture is the most precious part of Easter. We are soooo blessed! Have a wonderful and blessed Easter!
Love,
Martha

nikkicrumpet said...

Dang woman...I want you making me an Easter basket...you sure know how to pick out the good stuff! And since you've been sweetly nagging us about breast cancer for the last little while. I FINALLY broke down and went and got my first mammogram. I must say it was not anywhere near as bad as I thought...and I felt stupid for putting it off for so long. But all is well with my tatas and I wanted to just thank you for pushing me into getting it done!

Meggie said...

Wishing you a happy and blessed Easter, BJ!

Carol said...

Easter Blessings to you, BJ. I see we have lots in common!

HiHo said...

had a good chuckle with the two chocolate bunnies....
happy pink, heidi

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

I am searching my mind for where I put those M&M's that I hid away at Christmas time, because you just made me CRAVE some chocolate. Do you have a left over basket for me? 10 grandchildren on a sugar high could put grandmother in the bed (unless she was eating a whole big bag of M & M's!) Hope you had a wonderful Easter. laurie
