Pretty Aqua and Pink for Easter

Everything is new in the spring. Springs themselves are always so new, too. No spring is ever just like any other spring. It always has something of its own to be its own peculiar sweetness. - LM Montgomery

Hello dear bloggy friends!
Easter is early this year so our weather hasn't quite reached that stage of balmy breezes yet but it's coming! We've had a lot of snow lately but then it is still March so one can expect this here on PEI.

Springtime is like the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn. ~ Lewis Grizzard

I have set my tea table with some daffodils. Have you ever noticed their lovely fragrance? Even with a stuffed up nose, I can smell it.

My china today is a collection of some of my favourite colours, aqua and pink. Easter is such a lovely holiday and its soft colours whisper to us of more loveliness to come.

The aqua teacup and teapot are made by Gracie China.

The pink teacup is
Aynsley made in England. 

Bunnies and chicks are joining us too. The chicks around the vase of daffodils actually hop. My Auntie P and Uncle Doug sent them to me one year just for fun. The napkins are a gift from a blogger friend. Aren't they pretty with their scalloped edges?

Tea is like a hug and a handshake; something about it warms friendships and inspires confidences. ~ Victoria magazine

The bunny sitting in the teacup was also a gift from a blogger friend.

I have made some little chocolate tarts decorated with coloured eggs. My grandchildren are going to love these! The lovely Limoges plate was given to me by my Aunt Judy.

I am still fighting this terrible cold I've had for two weeks so I am taking lemon in my tea today. 

Easter is of course much more than chocolate and cute little bunnies. It is a special holiday celebrated in memory of the Lord's great sacrifice for us. 

When our children were growing up we always gave them their treats on Saturday because we thought it was important to keep Easter Sunday special. 

Besides having a wonderful Easter dinner together, some families exchange gifts this time of year. There are so many things to enjoy about Easter

So, let us enjoy this wonderful holiday but let's also remember what the Saviour did for us. He gave us the greatest gift of all; Himself, so that if we believe in Him and follow Him, we will have eternal life. Hallelujah!

Thank you for your visit and I wish you all a beautiful and meaningful Easter. God bless you, my friends!

My life, my love, I give to Thee,
Thou Lamb of God who died for me;
Oh, may I ever faithful be,
My Savior and my God! ~ Hudson

  5. Dear Sandi:
    We get to sleep in real beds tonight! Yes, not on the mattress and box springs on the floor. So much work but we are quitting for the day. I love your chickies, bunnies and Daffodils! Such a lovely post that makes us all happy with springtime thoughts and pretties!

    Happy Easter.

  9. Easter Blessings to you and yours! Love your Easter colors!!

  10. Happy Easter, Sandi. Your table is so pretty. The pink teacup is lovely, as are the aqua one and teapot. We're getting together as a family on Sunday for dinner. I'm hoping to get my table set this evening.
    May the joy of the Resurrection fill your heart and home!

  11. Oh, I do hope you feel better soon Sandi.

    may God bless you and your family this Easter.
    Sending some warm hugs.


  15. Happy Easter, Sandi, to you and your family. Easter to me is about the worst that can happen, happening.....and then, a miracle that changes everything. Hugs.

  16. Hello Dear Sandy,
    Happy Easter and Happy Spring! I am sorry you still have snow, but know that the warm weather is heading your way soon : ) I hope you feel better soon too. The flu has really been making it's rounds. Your daffodils speak well of spring and all your pretty tea cups and Easter fare is colorful and cheery. Have a lovely day!

  17. Hi Sandi, such a lovely post! Your daffodils and china are beautiful together. Thank God for the empty tomb!
    I sent your package on Tuesday, I was told it would take two weeks for you to receive it. I didn't know it took so long. :)
    Have a great week,

  18. What a lovely post! I love the words to that poem at the seems like I remember that being part of a song that we used to sing at church. It is such a dear blessing to know that our dear Lord came out of that tomb and is now seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us! Oh, I do love Him and want to somehow live a life that would make Him glad He suffered all He did to redeem my soul. It is always such a dear blessing to visit with you here, sweet friend. God bless you in a special way!

  19. Hi Sandi,
    I am so sorry to hear that you have had a cold. I hope that warmer weather in springtime brings you better health. I do love pretty aqua and pink together - my favourite! But all of the pastel colours of Easter are beautiful! Your daffodils and chicks are so springish. I hope that your Easter was perfect in every way! Get Well Soon! Karen

  20. sorry to hear you are under the weather. I hope you enjoyed Easter as much as possible, considering. You are a lady after my own heart...I do love your blues! So pretty. Feel better!

  21. Your tea is especially pretty, Sandi, and your Easter message is beautiful.
    I think I'll take a chocolate tart with a cuppa tea before I leave.
    I hope you're getting over your cold and stuffiness, my friend. xo

  22. Hi Sandi: I love your post today. It is so up lifting. I will pray that you begin to feel better. Have a great week. Blessings, Martha

  23. Dear Sandi:
    This post made me sad that you are still ill and I hope that is passing. You had mentioned that you all may be moving in the future or I think you said "downsizing". I hope you get a lot of help for that and you read what I said about marking every box and where it goes - that is the key to making it easier. Your Easter message here is right on - loved it! Daffodils, chicks and that pretty teacup - lovely!

  24. What a beautiful post Sandi. I love how you put the word Easter in pastel letters. The little tarts are just darling, and yes Easter is a truly special day celebrating our risen savior. How glorious to reflect on Him. Blessings to you and yours!

  25. Sandi, Daffodils are such nice flowers. Your table looks lovely with soft colors of aqua and pink. Those tarts look like chocolate which no doubt will be a favorite of the children. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D.

  26. Beautiful combos Sandi! Hope you had a lovely Easter!
