Pink Saturday and Happy Easter!

Happy Pink Saturday everyone and a Happy Easter to you all!

Our sweet hostess Beverly has asked us to do our post in pinks n yellows today, so here goes!
I will take you on a little tour of my Easter vignettes.

This little flower pot tied up with pink ribbon and containing pink flowers and a nest of eggs, I made a week ago. Little birdie is watching over it!
A bunny centerpiece....He is surrounded by flowers and eggs. The bunny itself is painted with an iridescent glaze.The mantel....Flowers, candles, eggs, birdies, and birdhouses. Crystal candle sticks surrounded by birdies, eggs, and posies....
You've all seen my tiered dish filled with hydrangea petals but I have added some tiny Easter eggs to it.
You have all seen my bunny dish filled with pink foil wrapped Hershey kisses. But did you know this is part of an Easter vignette in the dining room?
A little egg shaped box filled with Easter eggs and Easter chicks on the top cover.
The bunny pitcher is also part of the Easter vignette here.
Another peek at the whole vignette.
And this is my favourite bunny in the whole house; my toile lop-eared bunny which I found at Winners one year. He was six dollars and he has a place of honour sitting in his pink chair year round!
This bunny is awaiting dinner, all decked out in his yellow or rather golden finest, with a gold bell tied around his neck.I LOVE Lindt chocolate!
Time for dinner....my dinner! Yummy in my tummy!Now, please forgive me; I couldn't resist showing you this sweet little pink-eyed and pink-eared bunny rabbit! Isn't he just precious?Easter is a wonderful time of year! It is celebrated at a time when nature is waking up from a long winter's slumber. It is a pretty time of year, filled with lovely colours, bunnies, and flowers. Chocolate also plays a large part in it.

However, the real reason we celebrate Easter has nothing to do with eggs, baskets, or bunnies.

Easter is celebrated because of what our Saviour did for us. Jesus came and lived His life so that He could die for us. He who commited no sin, became sin, and went to the cross to shed His blood for us, that we might be free from sin. He became the sacrificial Lamb at Calvary.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. " ~ John 3:16
Thank you for stopping by today. Please make your way over to see Beverly http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ and her party of pinkies.

Happy Easter friends and Happy Pink Saturday! God bless you and your family!

Happy Resurrection Sunday sister Sandi! Your Easter theme are all cute! But I love when you said, that Easter has nothing to do with those. The real meaning is what Jesus did to save humanity. God bless you!
