Happy Easter

By 04/09/2009January 26th, 201735 Comments

My dear friend and mentor Elizabeth Stevenson passed away this week and in addition to that devastating news, I am in Victoria over this weekend as my uncle is in critical condition in the hospital after suffering a severe heart attack yesterday morning. We are waiting (hoping and praying) for him to wake up tomorrow morning. One of my lovely readers Colleen Buker from CB Design (coincidentally in Victoria as well) sent me these beautiful photos of her spring pots and I thought they were perfect to include in a post for Easter since now I haven’t had one prepared.

Have a wonderful Easter Weekend!
