Happy Easter to You!

I love springtime, and Easter is such a wonderful time of the year!
This year we have all our children and grandchildren coming home for Easter...all 21 of us!
I am always in the craft room dreaming up something to give to my daughters. This year I made them some vintage postcard signs embellished with glass glitter. The average sign measures 11"x8" and a few smaller.
I printed out vintage postcard graphics and layered them 3 times for strength and this is what I came up with!
I am going to make some sweet everyday signs for my Etsy store when company leaves...but I don't want them to leave! xox

A little peek into our little quest powder room! Yes, a chandelier with candles!

I am so grateful for Jesus Christ and for His Atoning Sacrifice!

Wishing you a wonderful Easter!
