 I would like to wish all my bloggy friends a very happy and safe Easter.  I was happy putting out my little Easter decorations . Last year I was in the 12" Mini Swap and Simone sent me this lovely cheery Easter mini that I have displayed with a cute little rabbit and chook.

A couple of years ago I made a bunny teatowel which was a free pattern and some fabric eggs. The eggs are amongst some other egg decos. The bunny and eggs were originally symbolic to the pagans as a sign of birth and renewal. .

As sometimes happens, my birthday was yesterday, the day before Good Friday. This year I joined the birthday fat 1/4 swap and I am soooo pleased I did! I was so excited opening all the parcels that had arrived for me .  I have never had so many pressies on my birthday before , apart from my 21st which was a few decades ago .  Check out all these yummy scrummy fat 1/4s.
I was really blessed to receive heaps of extras with the fat 1/4s. Buttons, threads, choccie, tea bags and more.

Beautiful Peg sent me an extra special pressie. Even hubby loved this gorgeous table topper.
Each year Barb and I exchange birthday gifts as hers is the day before mine.  For years I have admired the beautiful crochet she does and I was overjoyed to discover these lovely doilys.
 A lovely surprise gift arrived from Shez. which I love. 
I would like to thank each and every one of my bloggers for your kindness, generosity, sincerity and friendship. Through you I have linked up with swaps and my blogging list is forever expanding. I can see by the wonderful gifts I have received that you all put the time and effort into truly knowing who I am. I also feel I need to thank and  acknowledge an incredible lady known as " swap mama", Cheryll .
Thankyou for wading through all these photos. 
Angel Blessings.
