Happy Easter!

Up VERY early this morning, I started off Easter with a hot cup of tea {from my 'Bordallo Pinheiro' china and a Strawberry Cross Bun...yum yum! Thank goodness the gym is closed today so I don't have to deal with the guilt of eating BAD and not working out!!!















Happy Easter to y'all! Of course, this morning I attended Easter service at Church:) LOVE my Church!

The Ladies Church Garden Club and the Altar Guild did a wonderful job! Take a look at the Altar...

The needlepoint kneeler cushions at the Altar Rail are stunning!

Of course, on Easter Sunday, MOST people are dressed in their 'Sunday Best Easter Outfit'. From my front-row seat, {got there just in time to get the last seat--UP FRONT, Lord have mercy!} I saw everyone. One gentleman looked very dapper in his seersucker jacket. There were several beautiful hats and many bright colored linen suits. Then...there was the white sandals with stockings. The blue jeans with tennis shoes and topsiders? I love topsiders also, but on Easter Sunday? After the service, one of the ladies on the Altar Guild was working at the Altar and it was then that I realized she and I were the only Lilly-clad girls present!!!

After Church, I went straight home {no shopping!} for a traditional Easter Sunday Dinner of Honeybaked Ham, green bean casserole, cream corn, mashed potatoes, salad, and Sister Schubert rolls. Since the gym is closed today {YAY for that}, I'm gonna have a relaxing day and watch Miss Coco dig into her little Easter basket.

"HERE'S WHAT WORE" Decided to go blue this Easter with the Worth shift Lace, 'Aquamarine in the Slim', by Lilly.





Love the pattern, with the ladies {also dressed in Lilly} in a fountain...



The bodice has the most beautiful lace detailing...




I broke out my white Revas and carried a little white Bermuda bag to celebrate the first day of 'White Shoe Season'. My white cardi throw is from Land's End. I wore my rollring wedding band by Cartier, my pearl necklace, and my Ralph Lauren pearl earrings & bracelet. My ponytail was adorned with an aqua ribbon and my fragrance of choice for the day was 'Wink' by Lilly.





"HERE'S WHAT MISS COCO WORE" Her little Easter dress is pink and green and has a bunny-motif print! Her topknot is adorned with a pink ribbon bow.





Little Miss Coco's Easter basket...she has a new baby {named Rabbit} and some bone-zes and cookies!





Miss Coco digging in...





I hope y'all have a wonderful Easter Sunday! Thank you for visiting with me today.

I don't think those people came to church today to impress you. I'm sad you had to post this on your blog publicly. You are are southern lady with class I thought. This is why a lot of people want go to church because of people like you. If I was you, I would delete that part from your blog post FAST! =(

Hi Miss Janice! I'm so glad you had a nice Easter Sunday. Your church looks so wonderful! Love how the ceiling looks with all the rafters! Just lovely!
We're pretty casual here on our little island and no man wears a suit. It's just too hot! :)
Little Miss Coco is darling in her little Easter dress.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

My goodness Miss Janice, isn't it wonderful that USA citizens can express their opinions without being imprisoned? I too like to see all the finery at church on Easter Sunday and appreciate people coming in anyway they can. Dressed-up or not!! I think your post was GREAT! Don't let negativity spoil your own opinion.

Miss Janice,

You and Coco looked marvelous this morning!

We live in a small rural area and attend the church that is in the middle of the valley, literally.

I have been unable to attend church for several months because of my health. And I do disaprove of the way some of the people dress - myself included, but sometimes it's the only way I can make it at all. Our members give me, and each other, hugs and kisses given with great love to every member, no matter how we are dressed.

We are there to show respect to our Lord, not to show off our taste in clothes.

I read your blog every time I am able to be up and have enjoyed every moment, but this one.

I wish you the very best!

Ruth Ann
