Hymn of Promise

In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree; in cocoons, a hidden promise; butterflies will soon be free! In the cold and snow of winter there's a spring that waits to be, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

There's a song in every silence, seeking word and melody; there's a dawn in every darkness, bringing hope to you and me. From the past will come the future; what it holds, a mystery, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity; in our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity. In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see. ~~ words & music by Natalie Sleeth, 1986 United Methodist Hymnal

Easter Table

I'm joining Susan @http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for Tablescape Thursday. She is the queen of tablescapes! In fact, there will be so many pretty tablescapes to look at be sure and go over there and check them all out!!
My Easter decorations and table today are mostly from one place...Hobby Lobby!
Don't you just love that place!

Okay, this isn't an official tablescape, but it is part of the Easter decorations that go with my tablescape! Isn't that bunny adorable! It looks like he's made with purple hydrangeas! I got him at the grocery store! They have such great floral departments now!
Here's my Easter table! I'm going to add some Easter cookies later to the teirs!
The butterfly and bird plates are from Hobby Lobby. The white plate/chargers are Southern Living Gallery. The blue butterfly stemware is from Big Lots last year and I need more! Did you notice the flower shape placemats? I got those at Kohl's with only one thing in mind!

Aren't these napkin rings adorable! Hobby Lobby!! Each one is doing something different!
The napkins I've used before! My dad got them and the tablecloth to match at a garage sale! I haven't used the tablecloth yet!
If you haven't had the chance please be sure and check out my new Etsy Shoppe! I'll be adding more jewelry and some purses I decorated and maybe even a few tassels! Thank You!

My New Etsy Shoppe and Favorite Saturdays with Laurie

Well I finally did it! Some of you know I make jewelry. My friends have been telling me for months to put my jewelry on Etsy and I finally did. Just look over to your right! I was up till 2 am this morning!! I feel sort of vulnerable! My own personal creations out there for someone to either love or hate! I plan on adding more pieces but I thought I would start slow. I also have some purses I've decorated that I call "Wedding Purses" I want to add, especially with the season coming up! I made one for a friend's daughter-n-law when my friend's son was getting married. Bride's need a little purse too! She absolutely loved it and when her sister got married she used it too! I may even have some tassels!!! I know, blogland is full of tassels!! LOL! But I do enjoy making them and mine are a little different. I am also trying to get back into blogging again!! I've got an Easter tablescape I need to share! Love You All!!! Lauralu :)
I am also joining Laurie @ http://bargainhuntingwithlaurie.blogspot.com/ for her "My Favorite Things Saturday"! She has such a wonderful blog, almost as wonderful as herself! I love to create and I love jewelry, especially fashion and vintage jewelry so I'm shamelessly promoting my new Etsy Shoppe here! Okay, maybe I feel a little shamed but making my jewelry is one of my favorite things to do !
