If a Blogger's link is defective, I can help by playing detective by using clues from their comment left for me. However, if no comment has been left, without any clues, I am helpless. Please check your link to be certain it's working, and if it's convenient, leave me a comment. That way we'll all be happier.

Blogging has changed me. Before I began Blogging, I never even thought to decorate my home for holidays other than Christmas.
Now, just take a look! This first picture is my entrance table, seen just as you step inside the front door. Of course, there's plenty of Blue. I'll show you everything up close in the next few pictures.
Here's my apothecary jar with a bunny seated upon some Blue stones. His eyes are Blue and he's holding some colored eggs, one of which is Blue. Before Blogging, I didn't even know what an apothecary jar was! Now, I use it year round.
Next, another bunny, purchased from a thrift store for $3. Before Blogging, I never knew about the bargains in thrift stores. This bunny sits next to my crystal candy dish, filled with Russell Stover candy, individually wrapped with Blue foil. (One of my traditions, I began after grandchildren is to allow guests help themselves.)
Here's a close-up of a basket filled with a faux chocolate bunny and faux eggs. I bought the bunny at $ store in 2010, and the eggs were 50% off from Pier One after Easter that same year. You'll notice the Blue ribbon tied on the handle of the basket, the tiny Blue ribbon around the bunny's neck, and the Blue netting inside the basket.
The sweet chick is carrying a Blue egg, tied on with a pretty Blue bow. I bought him from Hobby Lobby last year. Bloggers taught me all about Hobby Lobby, and fortunately, one was recently built within driving distance.
This Blue egg was another purchase from the $ store. I have it sitting on a side table in the living room.
On the coffee table, I have a basket, filled with a $ store lamb nestled among pastel colored ceramic eggs, purchased last year from Hobby Lobby. Two of the eggs are Blue. The basket is one I've had awhile, and the Blue marble egg on the black stand outside the basket is a treasured piece I've had forever.
Now I own five!
Although there is no Blue in this next picture, you can see that Blogging continues to change me. Many of you have sweet little nests, and just last Monday, I saw one at Shelia's Note Songs. Inspired, I zipped out to Hobby Lobby and bought the last one they had! It came complete with three white eggs. With my coupon, it was only $2.39. I love that store! My Cloche is engraved and it came from Second Tuesday, after Shelia posted about it in 2009. Thanks, Shelia!
Have a Blessed Easter!
Happy Blue Monday!

A blessed Resurrection Day to you!
You are indeed! Lovely :-)
You are doing better than I am. I still do not decorate even after seeing all the great things bloggers do. It is no fun for just one. I love all the little special touches you have done. It is a cold, blue Monday here.
Sally I love your Easter blues! Happy Monday! Hugs Anne
Sally I love all your Easter decorations! I have to see if a Hobby Lobby is located near me.
I am excited this year as I'll be celebrating with all my grandchildren!
HI Sally! Oh, look at all of your darling Easter blues! Love them. That is one handsome bunny and I'm so pleased I could inspire you a bit with the nest. It looks wonderful!

I LOVE Hobby Lobby! Love your sweet Easter decorations, especially I think the blue egg with flowers.
I don't go to thrift stores much because I end up bringing too much home. But there are some neat treasures there.

Beautiful decorations! Hope you have a wonderful Easter with your family.
Good morning Sally, You made me laugh at how blogging has changed our lives. It is so true. Your sentiments with each photo definitely are mine as well. Who knew? Your vignettes are charming and very 'blog worthy.' Smile. In other words, "you done good" I have trouble using bad grammar but it fits! HA!
Happy Blue Monday.
Sally, blogging really inspires one to do things we never dreamed of. It has helped inspire me to try different styles and new recipes. Your entrance hall vignette looks very festive for Easter, love the pretty basket too. Of course Peter Rabbit is always charming in his blue jacket! Thanks for all your help, sorry about the linking problem. Happy Blue Monday and Blessings to you and yours.

The first step is that, wow gold you can learn the best way to reach the wow gold cap. What is the first thing that you have guessed? The Auction house? Yes, this is a good way to make the wow gold, but it is not the fastest way to reach the WoW gold gap. For this take a ton of time, even you are in the highest speed, it will need you a lot of time. May be you can get bunch of gold for you, but the wow gold is too expensive and you this against Blizzard’s Terms of Service. power leveling wow If the wow gold is too good for you, it will help you get enough gold and silver to purchase much needed upgrades for your character. As we all know, the more gold we have the better the equipment and weapons you can buy, and the faster the speed of leveling up. And a good Wow gold guild will tell you is about that: how you can make loads of gold from just doing the normal quests and exactly the way to do them so you make more gold; how to use the auction house to reap in huge profits on the items you sell; best wow gold how to make big money from the elements in the game.
Sally, this is SO cute. Love your decorations. I'm glad you did this because it is so cheerful and fun to see.
Sending you love and all good wishes for a very Happy Easter.
