Happy May Your Easter Be

 Hi Friends! Happy Easter ~ Spring to you!

Our weather is warming nicely but still no flowers to share just yet. Instead I thought I would share some vintage postcards with you today. If you thought my blog post title sounds a bit like backward speak you may be correct! Actually I took it from the card below, the sweet sheep grazing in the pasture above the greeting, "Happy May Your Easter Be". 



I included some bunnies and Easter Gnomes just for fun! Hope you enjoy them and they bring a smile to your sweet faces!



My husband and I have been well and both of us have now received our first Covid vaccines. Ron gets his second vaccine soon and I will get mine at the end of the month. I've just heard that the Pfizer vaccine is good for about 6 months. Guess we will be spending more time at medical clinics than we would like. We are still wearing our masks etc. though as variants are still spreading and all the states around us have ditched their mask requirements. 

This Easter I am very thankful that we have made it through this. I remember last year at this time I was very worried about all of it. I hope you are all well and are able to enjoy this beautiful time of year. Happy Spring and if you celebrate, Happy Easter as well.

Hugs, from Diane and Guy🐤🐥💕

Winter into Spring

 Winter with a hint of Spring....



The image above is me stepping outside just when you think Spring is here and then suddenly it starts to rain.  Then the wind howls and before you know it there are three inches of snow to shovel.  At least I know that Spring really will be here soon so I can tolerate a few more bouts of cold weather!


Soon our crab apple trees will be blooming and the grass will be green and I'm so looking forward to it! In the mean time I've been trying to reorganize my office and clear out some clutter. On my breaks I sit at my computer and play. My new header image was made by using the chick postcard and an image of a blooming tree. I used my computer to combine the images and "paint" the images  together to form one image. It took me about an hour to finish and I do find it quite satisfying! 

Here's another image below I worked on. It originally showed the deer with a rope and log snared around his foot and dogs and hunters chasing him.

 

I was very  pleased to remove them and free the beautiful deer. Now it just looks as though he's prancing through the fields without a care in the world. I can't show you the original as it was too disturbing for me to even keep.  Of course all the images I use are public domain and are from reputable websites. I love  finding these antique images and bringing them back to life.

In other news, my husband finally got his first Covid vaccine. I'm still on the waiting list and hope to hear soon. We have the UK variant in a county close by so would very much like to get my vaccine. Laying low and staying away from everyone. 

How's everyone doing out there?  

Take care, stay safe! ~ Diane
