A Personal Note from Janine
What a crazy week it has been.
I must admit that I’m glued to the news and everything going on over in Ukraine. This part of the world is familiar to me since we traveled and adopted our children from Kazakhstan.
My husband and I plan to donate to a charity that provides aid to the Ukraine crisis.
It feels like there are so many issues that we have all endured lately, and we all could use a break and have some peace.
I hope all is well with all of you.
We are hanging in there over here at the Waite pad. Now that Covid is receding, we are getting out into society more. My husband has a terrible immune system, so we have been a bit more cautious than most people.
I must say that it’s nice to shop again and view stores and things through fresh eyes. I feel like a kid in a candy store.
Well, let’s get this Saturday Chitchat started.
Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy this fun Easter decor post!

My Latest Obsession – Pretty Paper Bunting
I found this paper garland on Etsy, and I ordered it right away for my mantel. I love the delicate floral images that each piece displays.

I’m not too familiar with Edith Holden’s book, but now I’m certainly going to research more on the subject.
