Happy Easter 2013!

Easter Bunny

Easter means Easter baskets, and Easter baskets mean new places to nap, if you’re a cat. —Making Easter one of Charlotte’s very favorite holidays all year.

Of course, Easter is also about what’s inside those baskets (besides Miss Kitty). Just for fun, here are two I put together earlier this week “from Charlotte” to send to my aunt and little sister.

Easter Baskets

And below is the breakfast table doodle Dad got on Monday—the day he planned to mail these baskets out for me.

If you’re like our girl Charlotte, Easter also means Fashion, and finding just the right bonnet, as seen in yesterday’s breakfast table doodle.

Charlotte's Bluetooth Bonnet

Which bonnet would she choose? Charlotte decided to sleep on it—literally.

In the end she went with a more traditional all-floral look…captured, more or less, in Dad’s “special edition” breakfast table doodle from this morning (below).

Easter Bunny Was Here

Speaking of morning doodles. my good friend Gayle got one today as well, in honor of her birthday—and as thanks for the very cool one she drew for me, when I had a birthday a few weeks back. (Hope it’s been a splendid one, m’dear, kicking off a fabulous year ahead!)

Happy Birthday, Gayle!

Meanwhile, I realize that Passover, Easter (and spring itself) have deep meaning for many—well beyond bonnets, chocolate, and extra naps. I hope that however you spent this week or this day, it was peaceful and happy…a time of joy and renewal…and included some sweet moments with the people you love (whether 2-legged or 4).

Here’s to a great week ahead and a beautiful spring for us all!

    Jeanie, this is one of your best doodles ever. The picture of Charlotte’s Easter bonnet blew my mind like some of those great illustrated children’s books did when I was a toddler. Remember Hans Fischer? That kind of impact.

      Aw, Sis — You are too kind but thanks so much! And yes, of course I remember Hans Fischer, and his classic about the little black cat, Pitschi. I couldn’t be more complimented — that’s always been one of my faves.

      Btw I have a copy you can revisit next time *we* visit — or for immediate gratification, you can see a preview at least, including some of the wonderful drawings, here on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Pitschi-Hans-Fischer/dp/0735822786

  2. Love the Easter doodles. :)
