Pink Saturday Easter Weekend

A Happy Pink Saturday Easter Weekend~

Hello sweet pinkie friends and welcome to another week of my pink offerings for Pink Saturday. This week is special because we're celebrating EASTER.


My Easter basket came early this week as I was treated to a wonderful surprise a few days ago!
A few weeks ago, I had won Celestina Marie's Giveaway. You are all familiar with this talented lady, right? If not, then please take a moment and visit her blog ~
She has lots of eye candy and she is one of the sweetest ladies you will ever meet.

The box arrived filled with styrofoam pebbles and pink petals. Underneath it all was the most wonderful surprise! Wanna see?

When I opened the box, there was a lovely scent coming from inside it!
This is what she sent me~
A very pretty box wrapped in a delicate pink frenchy paper. It was so pretty that I hesitated to open it! I love anything with a French theme; Eiffel Towers, fleur de lis, Paris, etc.

It was accompanied by the pink tissue wrapped gift and pink cello bag there beside it. And they were tied with lovely tulle. Celestina has such a romantic touch, even in her gift wrapping!

The top of the pretty package held a sweet pink rose and it was tied up with tulle also. There was a little sachet filled with lavender. That is where the lovely fragrance was coming from. It too was adorned with a pink rose.

Attached to the pink gift was a pink cello bag with this sweet bunny tag all trimmed up in pink. The glittery tag is trimmed with pink ribbon, roses, and a pink crystal droplet. Pretty?

I unwrapped the pink gift and to my wonderment, this is what I found! *sigh*

Enchanting! The sweetest little pink basket trimmed with lace, a pink bow, and Celestina's gorgeous hand-painted pink rose.  When I opened the basket, the other side of the lid was painted with her precious little rose bud and her signature. I am so loving this!

Nestled in tulle, inside the basket, was a darling pink Easter egg all sparkly and wrapped in lace. It was presented in a sweet sachet bag as well. This dear lady doesn't skimp on anything.

I remember when I took tole painting years ago, my instructor always stressed finishing your project beautifully inside and out. Celestina has certainly done just that.

It truly is beautiful! Celestina's signature roses were painted on both sides of it.  Can you see the sparkles?

All of these lovely things were extra surprises she had gifted me with. And they're all pink! Aren't they scrumptious?

The actual Giveaway was this darling ceramic bunny~ Isn't it adorable?

 Celeste's pink roses are painted on both sides of the bunny. 

She's all smiles because she knows she looks good and she has hopped into my house just in time for Easter. Even the top of her head is decorated with pink and green crystals as well as lace and pearls. She's a very lovely bunny!

Fabulous giveaway! Thank you Celestina! I'm so happy you picked my name! I shall treasure these always!
I hope you will take a moment and visit Celestina Marie Designs ~

Thank you everyone for visiting today and thank you Beverly ~  for hosting Pink Saturday so faithfully. I know it takes time and patience to host a meme every week. Wishing you all a Happy Pink Saturday and A Very Happy Easter!

Please join me next week for another Tea Time Tuesday.

Good Friday Blessings

Remembering His sacrifice...

But He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging we are healed. ~ Isaiah 53:5
