A Gift,Gardening,and swapping, OH MY!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter or whatever special day you celebrate in the spring. Look what Jenny and Aaron sent me! I just love it! I love polka dots and who doesn't love bunnies??? It will be going up on the wall soon!
We need a little happy on our walls and she is it!
I just rediscovered this pretty little doll. I love her, I believe she has a fabric body but her face is painted so it looks like leather. She has hand-stitched leather shoes....she is just a sweet little southern belle. Can't believe I had forgotten her! I am looking forward to moving things around a bit and making way for her!

Here is my little veggie garden that I started from seed. I started earlier this year so we can enjoy the fresh veggies longer. The peas are doing beautifully and we have some zucchini, green onions and radishes coming up too!
I know this isn't too exciting for most but it astounds me because I am not known for my gardening skills! This weekend we bought some plants- tomatoes, more squash, basil, peppers and cukes.... yummy!
Well, right now my life is a little dull for blogging. Been taking care of the family and getting all the tests done for my mom so she can have her hip surgery on June 10th. The docs finally have given her some pain meds to help and she is much more comfortable! Yippee!
I am in 2 swaps so I will be back to share about those and whatever I can find that will be fun for all you cute blogging friends! hugs! karen....

Love the bunny and dots. The doll is sweet and yummy on those peas. All very nice and special.

Your garden is coming along nicely! I think you did very well especially growing things from seed (which is not as easy as it sounds).

Good for you! I love to garden and can't wait to get planting! We need a bit warmer weather here yet. I could have planted some cool season things but I'm never ready early enough for that.
