"PLANT A SEED OF FRIENDSHIP; REAP A BOUQUET OF HAPPINESS"! (Louis Kaufman Quotes)

Blogville has some wonderful Wednesday events, hosted by some wonderful bloggers, and today I'm participating in two of those events.

Wordless Wednesday is sponsored by Miss Dixie at French Lique, and her topic today is: FRIEND:





Be sure to go visit French Lique,
Texas and get linked up with all
of the other posts about friends.
Thank you for sponsoring this
fun event, and for always coming
up with a great topic Dixie.

Outdoor Wednesday is sponsored by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer, and this is my first time to participate in this event. I just had to participate in this, because today, the temperature in NE Arkansas rose to 84 degrees! When I came home from work, I NEEDED to get outside and enjoy the spring-like weather. Tomorrow, our highs will be in the low 40's! I guess today we were having faux spring. I snapped some pictures of some of the flowers that have begun showing up in our yard -- just in time for the arrival of a faux winter tomorrow!


"Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party'!" ~Robin Williams




"If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom." ~Audra Foveo



"Earth laughs in flowers." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson




Thank you, Susan, for hosting
this event. Go over to A

If you visited my last post of my Easter decorations, you know I need more Easter decor! (Okay, go get a cloth to clean up that coffee you just spewed all over your computer.) SOMEBODY thought I needed some more decor! My friend, Susie (who shared her beautiful home with us on my Valentine's posting), sent me MORE Easter decor!
Look at this darling banner she made for me!



AND:


She sent me a beautiful Easter egg with two little girls on it (sort of like Susie and me when we were children). It's one of those eggs with the pretty sparklies on it, so it's difficult to get a good picture of it.



AND


She sent me this precious bunny, who hides an Easter egg under her felt body.


Susie is just one of those people who is always doing nice things for others (she's also an enabler-I think she wants me to have as much holiday decor as she has, so she won't feel guilty about all of her decor)! I am just so fortunate to have her friendship AND her wonderful gifts!

"A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked." -- Bernard Meltzer.


Susie is definitely a true friend!

Speaking of friends, I have again received the Sisterhood Award. Each time this award is mentioned, I marvel at the wonders of the internet, which brought us together in this wonderful sisterhood. If you had told me a year ago that there were wonderful friends awaiting me in Blogville, I would have laughed at you! (I wouldn't have just laughed, I would have asked you where the heck is Blogville!) Well, I've been wrong before, and I'm sure this is not the last time I'll be wrong. There ARE wonderful friends in Blogville, and I'm glad I know where it is now. I am also glad that I know Lilly B at Lilly Loves... , who passed this award on to me. Thank you so much for this honor Lilly. If you don't know Lilly, you need to go visit her blog. In addition to having a lovely blog, Lilly is getting ready to have a lovely give away in honor of her 100th post!

Thanks so much for coming by to see me. laurie
