Welcome Springtime! Greetings friends, I hope you are excited about our new season as much as I am? I know you are!! And, here in my toile studio, I have a little bunny just waiting to hop over to someone special for my new Spring Giveaway.

She is made from ceramic and wears a halo of pink tulle, pearls and gemstone flower on her sweet little head. Glitter pearly flowers circle her neck and my hand painted cottage pink roses grace her sides with a sweet rose bud by her bunny paw. Her eyes are closed in a sweet little disposition as she dreams of her new home with one of you. She asks that you enter this giveaway with a comment on this post only and perhaps become a new follower too. That's all you have to do, nothing more.

Also, I have to take a moment to send my many thanks to you for the get well wishes. Your emails, cards, gifts and flowers really are appreciated. You thoughtfulness and kindness will always be remembered. I am scheduled for more tests this week and the next while I gather my energy and get back to creating in the studio.
In the meantime, Happy Spring and best wishes for a blessed and wonderful new season.

Blue Skies Be Yours,
Celestina Marie

This is such a sweet bunny you have decorated with your beautiful roses, and I would love a chance to win her :) I've placed your Giveaway pic on my sidebar and linked it right back to here to help spread the word. I do hope you will feel better and more like yourself very soon ~ take care of yourself!!

Unknown said...

Celestina, Happy Spring to you. I love your little bunny! She would be right at home in my new studio. I sure hope you are feeling better and that your tests come out okay. Will send prayers up for you.

Mariette said...

Dearest Celestina Marie,

Your painted yellow roses are now in the home of our friend. She loves them and I did forward her your information so she knows which great artist did this.
Hope your tests do come out good and also that you get your strength back. Take it easy though, you cannot force yourself as health is such a precious thing. I had to learn that the hard way myself too since last year January. But with our strong faith, prayers from friends and a positive attitude we'll get there!
What a lovely bunny; a perfect spring bode.

Lots of love and hugs,

I hope you are continuing to feel better. Your sweet little bunny is precious. Keep me posted on your tests...I certainly know what it is like to have to keep having medical tests....but soon it will be over...and you will be back to creating all your beautiful things!!

~CC Catherine said...

Hi precious friend. I am so sad that I haven't been by to learn you've not been well and are undergoing tests. I'm in kinda the same boat. Have had two biopsies in past few weeks, one was basal cell carcinoma skin cancer and have since had the one removed. Awaiting the next results on the other one. I'll try to read some back posts to see what's going on with you. I'll definitely be lifting you up in prayer sweet friend! This bunny is precious and if I'd be fortunate enough to win her...she'd go into my Visitor's suite where there are many pinks! :) You are so talented! Praying that all will be fine with these tests that you're having. Hugs and much love friend!

Unknown said...

She can take up residence in my home at anytime. She is lovely. Hope you have a blessed week.

Caroline said...

Hope you are feeling better by now and that your tests come back great with flying colors!!! You're much too nice to be sick!

The little bunny is very cute, and I would love to give him a good home. He is a visual reminder that spring will really come soon, even though we had about 2 inches of snow today with more on the way here in Wisconsin! Thanks for the chance to win him!

Unknown said...

Hello Celeste,

I wanted to stop by and see how you were. I hope that the tests prove you only need minor tweaking. Waiting is the worst part, isn't it? I am just so glad that it wasn't your heart. I will be praying for you to receive good news.

We have seen a few bunnies on our geocaching walks lately, but none as pretty as this handsome little fella. He is so cute!

La said...


I'm a new follower. I'm sorry to hear you have been ill. Hopefully, spring brings you better health.

This little cotton-tail is adorable.

Unknown said...


I know how difficult it is to just trust in the Lord when tests and waiting seems so uncertain.

I lost my footing last year, when they discovered something after having a Cat scan, and my doctor said I need you to see a neurosurgeon and you might need surgery.

I vividly remember looking out the window and saying to myself "if I get through this I will never never forget how this minute feels." Well, I didn't need surgery after all. And you know what Celeste, every time I look out that little window I remind myself what that feeling felt like. Ever since that adversity I relax about everything. Everything seems to pale compared to that day.

I will pray for the Lord to keep you surrounded by His love during your tests. I will believe for your healing.
