Springing Around

We've been springing around town
(my new best friend greets
me on my walks)

I've been doing so much spring cleaning,
moving furniture, pulling weeds
around this house...
Okay, the weed/outdoor part
is my husband's area ;)

And my back is not happy and needs
to rest ~ ouch!
What will that kitty think,
not seeing me for two days now?

My daughter and I have been traveling,
antiquing, searching for new items
for the store that we'll be listing in
the next week or so...

Isn't this a beautiful piece?
Love, love, love it!
Wish I could say we brought it home.

Speaking of Spring~

Our Lilac tree is in bloom...
Oh how good it smells
in the evening with the blossoms
just lilting above the roof and yard.
Can you smell them?

I didn't want to miss

the opportunity
to wish you
special spring time wishes


A very happy and blessed

Hi there ~ I'll bet little Orangey will be looking for you the next few days....

I clicked the pic of the Mary and Jesus statue to make it larger - Oh, my goodness, it is incredibly gorgeous!!! Really, really exquisite - I'm nearly swooning here....

Have a glorious Resurrection Day...

Happy springtime Tracie.
So sorry to hear that you have hurt your back and I hope that you are feeling better.
Such a lovely post and I love the kitty, lilac and roses.
The statue is beautiful.
Happy Easter


La Table De Nana said...

What a pretty stroll..Happy Easter to you too!

Claudia said...

Happy Easter to you, Tracie. I can just smell those lilacs!


Cozy Little House said...

That cat reminds me of my Clyde. Different colors, but same bushy tale and full coat of fur. I'm so happy you're doing so well with your shop, Tracie! I do stretching/yoga on a yoga mat on the floor twice per day like clockwork for my back. Stretching keeps the little injuries at bay!

June said...

Tracie I love who you choose to hang out with. Kitty is just too cute. That bouquet of lilacs is so pretty. I can't smell them in reality but I can in my imagination. It looks like Spring has come to your house.
I hope your back feels better soon.

Sandi said...

Just beautiful Tracie! I am so ready for tree blossoms, but ours won't arrive until May and June. We did have beautiful weather the last couple days though. 80 degrees! We hit a record. HAPPY EASTER!

BellaRosa said...

Tracie I hope your back feels better, I have a feeling your new friend is missing you on your walks...looks like he is looking for you in that second picture ;) A lilac tree?? my stars how I wish we could have one here in So Cal :) I hope you and your loved ones have a Beautiful Easter. Besos, Rose

Good morning sweet Tracy! Thank you for coming by and wish me a Happy Easter! Oh, that bunny at the end of my post; Ruben bought her for me in Maine many years ago. I just love her. Her name is Peace Lily!!!! I made her her paper hat and she is pretty in shades of white. You know, I must see if you have another little Marie bottle....I just love mine as it sits in my bathroom. She is just lovely!

Many blessings to you this weekend and always my sweet! Anita

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oohh...I just came back from your shop.....I just saw another must have! The petite Marie bottle with the CROWN ON TOP for $65!!!! I know it says, SOLD, but is there a chance that you will be getting more?


Marie Antionette said...

Happy Easter to you and your wonerful family Tracie,
I think about you also.I have not been to much of a friend of late to anyone.I can't seem to visit or post much of late.This is going on my hubby's 4th week of retirement...LOL And to say there have been many ajustments is an understatement. I can't seem to get anything done...LOL. Our anniversary was April 2,although we mostly celebrate it on Easter,cause we were married on an Easter. We have been married now for 38 yrs.
I'm so happy Spring is here too.Your lilacs are beautful.We can't grow them down here,its just to hot.But all my flowers are blooming and the peacocks all got their gorgeous tails.We did alot of weeding around the Gazebo, so I know how your back feels.You take care Sweetheart and know that I love you.I've been working on 2 new CD's.One with the newest country and another with oldies.I'll be sending them out soon.
Love you and Happy Blessed Easter,
XXOO Marie Antionette

Loved the statue, but I understand about not bringing it home-it wouldn't of been in my budget.

Right back at you, Tracie! When I flew back, it was still winter. Today the very first tiny birch leaves have begun to bud out! Finally! I know it's beautiful in your neck of the woods!

I love the kitty friend you meet on your walks. Is she a neighbor's cat?

Also, I'm sorry for your loss of your step-father. My thoughts are with you.
