~Happy Easter~

Happy Easter

dear friends!

Easter Sunday has been
a beautiful early Autumn day of 26 degrees C here.

As most of you know both our children
are living overseas....
it's at special times like Easter and Christmas
that we miss them the most.

We've just had a long conversation on the phone
with our daughter and granddaughters in France, 
before they attend
the Easter service at the Cathedral.

We're hoping by this time next year they will
be with us for Easter in New Zealand!
I can hardly wait!

I hope you all enjoy your day with


I'm joining Karen for her last

for this year
Thank you Karen

I'm also joining Judith for Mosaic Monday
Bernideen for her BTTCG party
Thank you both for hosting!

Take care and
be kind to one another

à bientôt



  1. Wunderschöne Fotos wieder, und danke für die lieben Ostergrüße.
    Auch ich wünsche dir und deiner lieben Familie schöne Ostertage.

    Hier ist es leider nicht so warm und ziemlich grau am Himmel.
    Wir hatten gestern Abend mit vielen Nachbarn ein riesiges Osterfeuer gemacht, mit Musik, Würstchen, Salat und Getränken.
    Osterfeuer ist eine alte Tradition von früher, um den Winter zu verjagen und die "Geister" auszutreiben :-)
    Dann verbrennt man alte, abgeschnittene Äste, Sträucher und Blätter.
    Der ganze Abendhimmel ist dann voll mit Rauch. Es riecht heute noch danach.

    Ganz liebe Grüße in die Ferne
    von Sophie

  2. Dear Shane,

    Happy Easter dear friend and so lovely that you were able to speak with your dear family in France.
    You will be looking forward very much to next year.l
    We were happy to have Sunday lunch today with our children.
    Sending love, hugs and blessings

  3. Beautiful bunnies dear Shane. Like you, we spent time speaking to the overseas children and grandchildren, as we watched them open the Easter parcel we sent. You will love next Easter indeed if they come over to visit. Wonderful news! Hugs, and Easter greetings. xx

  4. Beautiful collection of your photos. they are so lovely,Shane.
    How wonderful to hear that you were able to have conversation with your granddaughters in France!

    I have two sons, who live away from our house. We meet in New year holidays and spring holidays. I will meet my granddaughter in May coming soon.

    Yes, you and I are almost same age, my friend!(*^_^*)!

    Have a happy day!

  5. I know the pang in your heart when your loved ones are far away. Our oldest son lives far from us and you have to depend on Skype to see our grandson grow. A blessed Easter to you and yours.

  6. Dear Shane,
    wishing you a Happy Easter and a lovely time.

    Love and hugs to you!

  9. Such lovely Easter inspired things-the words and image for John 10;10 is beautiful! Sorry you are missing your family but just think, it really won't be that long til I'll be reading next Easter's post about your family's visit with you:) Enjoy your wonderful autumn day.

  10. Oh, Shane, what a wonderful post! Your photos are always a feast for the eyes.
    I totally fell in love with your green French plates. :)

  15. A very blessed Easter to you and yours! It is a good year when everyone can be together but it gets harder with adult children scattered about!

  16. Love love your blog, your photos made my heart sing, Got to say your are a women after my own heart.Roses, Laces and Brocante for sure. Glad you were able to speak with your family, praying for their save return.

  17. Hello Shane, I hope you had a wonderful blessed Easter! I love your adorable bunnies and decorations. The tablescape is pretty. Is your family moving from France to New Zealand? I know you will be very happy to have them home with you!
    Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  18. Hi Shane,

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! I can imagine how difficult it must be on days like this to have your children living abroad. Hope you had a wonderful time nevertheless.

    Your decorations look lovely.

    Wishing you a Happy week!

  19. There are some lovely images here, Shane! I hope your Easter Sunday was a lovely one. I know only too well the longing for our children when they are far away. We had the pleasure of one little family with us for yesterday's festivities, but we miss the other little family on the prairie.

  20. Happy Easter...fabulous scenes!

  24. Shane, I love your delicate Easter greeting. Thanks for sharing your photos. Sylvia D.
