"You can never go home again, but the truth is you can never leave home, so it's all right." ~ Maya Angelou

Welcome HOME my lovely friends!

It is finally beginning to look like Spring here. It's rather cool here today but the snow is slowly going away. How about where you are? My heart is longing to see my beloved Gold Finches again. It won't be long now.

This week, I shared a Tea using my Rose Chintz china and some pretty tulips.

You can see my bunny under glass in the background and a wee bird's nest with eggs in it.

I also had a cake from the bakery which I added a wee chickie and some Easter eggs to.

I have been working on a topiary for some time  now using my supply of dried roses and I'm just about finished.

These roses I have saved and dried over time.

The perfect dried rose with a tint of pink.

I love the ambiance at nighttime!

I have a few more roses to tuck in as well as some Baby's Breath but you get the idea. I know the Victorian lovers out there will like this.
Please excuse the cords. I usually have these hidden but moved the topiary out so you could get a good look at it.

Before I feature a few posts from last week, I have a report on my progress for you....

I am happy to tell you that I can walk without my walker now and I am healing well. My P-therapist is confident that I won't require surgery on my back and so is my doctor. I am thrilled with how well I am coming along! Thank you so much to those of you who have been praying for me.

Now, onto some posts which caught my eye last week...

Janet @ Rosemary-Thyme shared her Easter tablescape. I just love her pretty china and chargers with those darling bunnies at each place setting. The bunnies are too cute! I love the fresh green and pink colour theme.

And who wouldn't want to feast on these lovely rolls which Kitty @ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen made. I could probably eat several. Yum!

Another lovely table I wouldn't mind dining at is
Jocelyne's @ Just A Little Southern Hospitality. She used her beautiful china and pink depression glass as well as adorable bunny s&p shakers to set her table for Easter. Note the cute cloche holding eggs in the center.

Of course Easter could not be celebrated at all without the real 'reason for the season.'
Linda @ Coastal Charm shared her DIY cross which her husband built and set up in their front yard. The cross says it all. Isn't it wonderful!

Bernideen @  Bernideen's Tea Time Blog     received the most views on her post last week. Congratulations, Bernideen! If you are into thrifting and treasure hunting, then you will want to tag along with her. She finds the most beautiful things!
