WELCOME TO ~~FOR HEART AND HOME~~

Welcome to my blog ~For Heart and Home~. Thank you to my dear friend Linda from New York who took the pictures I sent her and made this beautiful banner for me. I visualized what I wanted it to look like and she made it happen. That is my sister and I as youngsters and yes, that is the home I grew up in during the 40's and 50's. Right about now, you are all probably saying, my goodness she is old. I am vintage, just like fine old lace. Thank you also to my good friend Debbi, from Oregon who answered questions non stop while I was trying to navigate the workings of the blog world. What is so wonderful is that friendships can reach across the miles and even tho we have never seen each other in person - through the wonders of the computer, we have developed that bond. Also, a big thank you to my good friend Mona also from New York, who often helps me after I have totally screwed something up on the computer. I feel very Blessed to have you all as my friends. Thank you and I hope everyone enjoys my blog. I know I will.

DECORATIONS FOR EASTER - XL HANDPAINTED EGG



I don't know about you, but in my house I like to have decorations for every season that I can use over again and again. I like something that can be lightly dusted, not break and last a lifetime. Now, I am not saying that I don't enjoy a fresh Lily or tulips, but I do seem to stick to a trend as to how I decorate. I like certain decorations put in certain places and hardly ever deviate each year. Obsessive compulsive you say - no - probably just a creature of habit. I decided to do these large Easter eggs last year and want to share them with you. They are gorgeous on a coffee table or a mantel. They come with their own little pink stand - each year they will be a focal point of your decorations - adding a live Lily beside it or a bouquet of tulips will finish off any area of your home just perfectly for Easter. They are made from wood and stand 11" high and 7 1/2" across. I cut these myself on my scroll saw - so they are all handmade. Hope you like them. Come and visit my shop and have a look. http://sandisstuff.etsy.com
