kind of easter related

Or maybe it's all just April related. 

Here's what I wish I wore on Easter:
Victorian Style Lace Top & Purple Camisole

Anna Sui Floral Top
Corduroy Skirt with Handmade Boombox Patch
Boho Dress
Purple Studded Shoes

Unfortunately I've been fighting a horrible cough 
& cold for over a week, so on Easter Day,

this girl, (meaning me), was looking rough.

Here's what I wore in April last year.
April 2011
I made my headband.
My cousin made my necklace, & earrings.

April 2011 

My friend made my bracelet.

Me with my guy in Easter 2010,
 at friend's house.
My mom made the jacket I'm wearing.
This April my twin nieces,
playing in their grandparents backyard.
Notice my favorite flowers, daffodils. 

This April, my nephew with the Easter Bunny.
Can you tell he's at the grocery store?

My nephew & my brother,
on an Easter Egg Hunt, this year. 

Notice the football Easter basket.

My art journal pages
It says: I don't have a secret happy place.
For I love my whole house. 
Those look like Aunt Teddi's favorite chips, Cheetos.
I wonder what's in that yellow Easter egg.

I think my nephew might be dancing. 

Georgia Bottoms by Mark Childress

...She would never forget how sunlight streamed through the wavery glass of her bedroom window. Sparkles of dust danced like tiny diamonds in a column of light. It was a moment of uncanny beauty, little jewels floating and sparkling, here in the middle of the room on this day...


  1. That cord skirt is pretty awesome. Feel better soon! Try a gallon of chamomile tea with honey!

  2. i love purple! it's such a fab color. and how great are those pants you're wearing?!!! sorry to hear you were sick on Easter. hope you're feeling all better now!

    BTW, the girls didn't catch the lizard. but they had fun chasing it!!!

  3. Let's just be best friends already. I love daffodils too - they are such a vibrant flower. If I could keep buckets of them throughout my house, I would, but then again I feel bad picking wild flowers. They are most beautiful when sitting in the forest. I just wish I could always look into the beauty of a daffodil. It's a shame they only come around here once a year.

    The pictures of your nephew and your sweet man looking at you made a better day for me. So much love in these photographs....

    May the flowers bloom for you and your beautiful life!

    sending you happy spells

  4. such a beautiful Easter post, Teddi :)
    first of all I love that Anna Sui blouse and also your lovely art journal. I noticed that thought of yours right away actually ;)
    oh, and I guess you have "a thing" with purple shades. the colour really suits with your hair in my opinion.

  6. Feel better sweet Teddi, you have such love for your family. It is so nice to see how you admire them. Love the art journal...very creative and sweet. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  7. oh no.. so bad you've got a cold.. I've got one too.. seems I went overboard during my springbreak 'cause I dehydrated, came back with a cold and cough and ughhh... not even a cool beach babe tan? come on! I'm still so pale.. anyway... hope you get well soon and wear one of those purple items later on this spring.. xoxo

  8. Never seen a Easter Bunny at the grocery store before. I saw Santa once, but not the Easter Bunny. I did see the one at the mall, and I never really saw any kids go to him. Everytime we passed by, he'd just be sitting in his chair with fans on high. That suit must be murder.

  9. oh no
    hope you'll feel better :)
    that Anna sui blouse is gorgeous!
