The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

A Pair of Hares!

Down on the lower level On Crooked Creek, just to the left of the bottom of the stairs, is my Art Studio.

Regardless of the out ~ of ~ doors weather on the Prairie. . .
Spring is the continual season in Studio One!

The year 'round home for my bunny collection On Crooked Creek. . .including this pair of hares, resides in Studio One.

The unfinished portion of a basement is never a pretty sight; however, I have managed to camouflage the disparity of cement walls and floor by designing Studio One with a Garden Theme.

Perched high above my workstation, "Mr. Hare" is the perfect picture of boyhood in his  denim shirt complete with white sailor collar, turned back cuffs and gingham checked overalls. His outfit is accented with his matching gingham check bow tie!

"Mrs. Hare" dons a pastel floral garland with satin streamers as she ushers in the ritual of festivities liken to the May Pole dance. Her shirt waist dress is accented with dainty rose buds and pink trim around her full floral print skirt. Gingham pantaloons disguise her less than lady~like posture.

The pair appear to be smiling as they sit together in their Pottery Barn galvanized wire patio chairs. Could it be they alone know where the eggs have been hidden as we await the arrival of Easter morn???

A miniature pastel floral wreath in hues of butter yellow, creamy ivory, luscious lavender and sage green soften the area beneath the couple and are similar to the palette of hues in the outdoor garden On Crooked Creek.

With Holy Week upon us, it is our wish ~ On Crooked Creek ~ that you participate in this remembrance of the significance of the Season. May you be sorrowful and joyful ~ as you experience in your heart and life ~ the impact of The Cross.

Have a blessed Easter!

Until next time. . .
