Easter Greetings

I'm sharing a few of my favorite Easter Postcards from my postcard collection.  These were called penny postcards and are from about 1900-1920.  Angels are some of my favorite cards to collect.
Happy Easter everyone.

Two of my Grandsons are enjoying their new trampoline.  Lots of fun on a sunny day when the snow is in melt mode.  It's a good way to work off lots of energy.

When it's springtime in Alaska

Before I get too excited about Spring, here's a picture showing the snow we had on Monday, April 11.

Knitted Easter Chicken

Do you like knitting, chickens and Cadbury eggs?  Check out this link by Anjie Davison for an easy to knit chick that holds a Cadbury egg, or real egg.  I'm going to be knitting a basketful!
Here's a picture I took of the chicks I knitted.  To me they look more like little spring birds that are starting to appear at my bird feeders.  Only about 3 more weeks until the hummingbirds return to Alaska.  I can't wait.

Alaskan Teddy Bear artist

Please take a look at this artist Teddy Bear!  He is made in Alaska and has been embellished with sea shells found on Seldovia beaches.  The artist also writes a story to go along with the Teddy Bear.  She is a very talented seamstress and author, I should know because she's my daughter.  Here's her etsy site.
Rose will be adding more bears as she can. 

Knitted lamb and sheep

I've been busy this week, knitting a rabbit and lamb.  The patterns are by: Fuzzy Mittens (Barbara Prime)  The lamb pattern she offers for free, the rabbit and other adorable animals with sweaters you can purchase from her web site.  The animals are easy to knit even for beginners and are so cute!  These two will go in my granddaughters Easter Basket.
