Easter and Spring at the Emporium!




Here comes Peter Cottontail...

hopping down the Bunny Trail

just for you!







Spring and Easter is upon us and
 I am so excited to share some of the wonderful items
 offered up at this time at the Finch Rest Emporium!


So I'm keeping chatter to a minimum-
 just sharing some pics- in hopes you will stop by the store
 and do a little bit of your spring shopping with me.





























It's not easy letting anything go,
 I really love these items
-and believe you will as well!






















It's fun to add a little new thing now and then,
for your own collections or for gift giving!















































You can always find the store on the round button
 to the right of my blog -
 just click "Shop" and it takes you right there!
















Come by soon and snatch up what you love
 before someone else beats you to it!  : -)






















 Baskets! Wonderful baskets!
There are so many awesome baskets in the shop!
















If you haven't yet entered my 4-part giveaway
just visit the most recent last post -
has been extended to Sat. April 5th!













Thank you for your patronage
and for your loyal visits to my nest!

Each of you is a treasure to me.

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Happy Spring - 4 Giveaways!



Well now, my word- doesn't time just fly by?

Here the first day of spring has passed
(was last Friday)
 and I completely ignored it.


And it appears as though I am ignoring all of you, too.

(Things really have been more than a little hectic around here.)


So to apologize for my absence, warmly welcome spring -
 and to let you know how much I *adore* you
I am having a little giveaway for 4 lucky readers!









1.) A tiny plushie garden bunny with his shovel
sitting in a cute little metal watering can.










2.)  A vintage pink Daffodil linen tea towel!










3.) A set of two matching picture frames.

These are cute, but both are shabby/chippy.










4.) And lastly a pretty set of floral tea or coffee mugs
that are microwave and dishwasher safe.

Neither chippy or shabby.









Unfortunately due to the high $$$ cost of shipping
I have to keep TWO of these giveaways within the continental US-
the frames and the mugs.

So if you are from outside the US and wish to win
either the garden bunny or the tea towel, do let me know
via the comment section!

Sorry I have to do it this way,
 it's the only way I know I can afford
to have these giveaways.









To enter, all I ask is that you leave a comment below...
letting me know you wish to
enter this giveaway and which giveaway you'd prefer!

Of course I would hope and wish you become a
follower of this blog, but it isn't mandatory to win.

Giveaway ends Sunday March 30th. 

Extended to Sat. April 5th!

Also don't forget that if you don't have a 
blog please write my email and let me know
your email address so I can contact you
if you should win!



As always, thank you so much for your visit -
 it really means a great deal to me.
