your eggs are beautiful!! what happens to the inside bits that get blown out, do you get to eat them? They are very good for our doggy furs. the soup at yor aunt's house looks so refreshing and yummy. Mom loves green food :)

We are pretty sad about LacyLulu too. :(

Hi Asta,

Your Aunties Easter home & dinner looked lovely.

I haven't blown & pained eggs for years - thinks such a sweeet idea to make them for your Easter guests. Hope you have a happy w/e celebration, inspite of the sad, sad news about Lacy-Lulu.
But Easter is the time of new beginnings so who knows!

Love, pats & pets

Bella said...

Those eggs are just sooo beautiful & the celebration dinner look soooo yummy
Have a very yappy Easter

ps very sad about Lacy Lulu may she find peace with all our DWB friends looking out for us from over the rainbow bridge

Pippa said...

Mistress wants that green soup NOW. So does master. They love green soups (and yummy peas - we all love peas). We had forgotten it was spring today until we read your post - so thanks for reminding us.

Have a lovely Easter Asta

You got your bunny ears, Asta - and you look adorable in them! Aunt Karen's home looks so festive with all the bunnies and flowers! Your mom's painted eggs are just beautiful!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Your Aunty Karen made a lovely looking dinner and your mummys eggs are decorated beautifully. We hope you have a nice Easter Asta. We know your still very upset about Lacylulu, we all are.

Hi, Asta -

Mama showed me your Easter eggs and I think they are way too pretty to eat. Your family is so talented.

I (Hershey) just got back from New Hampshire - or as Papa says "Stick Hampshire." He is not being sarcastic because he definitely is a country boy at heart. Mama's the city slicker!

Mama started an entry on my adventures with the snow but the computer would not cooperate with her so she is getting frustrated. She is going to try again.

Hope you have a Happy Easter with your family! It will be quiet for me. Papa has to work and Mama will be doing homework. That will be no fun for a young schnauzer like me.

I guess I will do what I like best - drive Mama crazy so she will pay attention to me.

Love -


P.S. I miss Lacylulu too, but Bosco told me she has already met her at the bridge and is showing her around. Lacylulu was very popular and she is very popular at the "bridge."

Auntie Kawen's dinner and home looked just pawsome. The eggs Mommi made are bootiful. Nanny, Auntie Michele and Auntie Joey used to do eggs with bee's wax and onion skins a longs time ago they were called Pasanke in Polish, Nanny cannot spell, Nanny used to blow out the egg insides and turned wed in the facey.
Use look gorgeous in your Bunny ears.
Have a Happy Easter and kisses to Mommi & Daddi

Hugs, bellyrubs, smoochies

Maggie said...

Happy Easter Asta!
May you have lotsa lotsa blessing this year okaaaaaay

Stanley said...

You, Sweetpea, are the cutest Easter Bunny EVER!

Sounds like it's just one big party there... first at Auntie Karen's house, then at your house this weekend! I'm sure everyone who comes will smile because they get to be with you, your mommi & daddi!

Those eggs are fiercely bootiful! I just want to touch them, they're so shiney & bright!

Have a happy happy Easter, girlie!

Goober love & smooches,

Mack said...

Isn't Easter wonderful? Your family really knows how to celebrate it too. Auntie Karen's place looks so festive & pretty.
I am sooo sad that you were crying yesterday. It is sad that Miss LacyLulu has left us. But I know she is in a better place, running free and acting as if she were just a little pup- furever!

Faya said...

Asta le printemps chez nous il est en retard....il neige depuis 12 heures (15 cm de neige !!!!!)... Mes pauvres fleurs sont sous la neige. Miam miam ça a l'air très bon votre repas... Joyeuses Pâques à tous et gros bisous, Faya

Asta, your eggses look bootiful! We are all sad about losing Lacylulu, but we know that she is now young again and having a pawsome time at the bridge! Happy Easter to you and your family, Asta!

Weeny&Daisy said...

Hey Asta, we're very sorry to hear about your friend :(

The eggys that you and your mummy painted look very pretty

Love Weeny and Daisy xx xx

Sophie Brador said...

Asta, You're going to Rome?!!!! I'm so jealous, I can't even tell you how good that food looks.


ChaChi Lu said...

What a lovely table! Happy Easter!

Jans Funny Farm said...

We never heard of blowing out eggs but the ones you painted are gorgeous. Everything looks so lovely and the food delicious. Buddy, Merci and Samaritan would like the lettuce soup. We felines vote for the lamb and veggies.

We are so sad about Smudge. Another one has gone.

There are some beautiful photos of Lilly Lu on her site today. Perhaps there will be some good news later?

Petra said...

How fun to be with your Aunt Karen and celebrate with her! I think she looks a lot like your mom.

Do you get to have one of those beautiful red eggs, too, Asta?

When I think of Easter and springtime, I think of new life. It is sad to lose someone you love, but Lilly Lu must be enjoying her new life in a place nearby -- and always close to your heart.

Happy Easter, Asta!

Dewey Dewster said...

Why Asta,

Your hand-painted eggs look marvelous...just marvelous....how do you hold them to drain and paint them? Just wondering as when we tried that, they cracked and leaked all over us. We were yellow all over and Gram said we looked like Easter peeps......how insulting......we are terriers....Easter Terriers.

Gus said...

Oh my, where to start. You look absolutely darling in your easter ears. Do not wear them on the street in Rome, you will be mobbed!

Muzzer loves the eggs. She remembers doing that when she was a little girl. She likes them all, but her flavorite is the pink one with one stripe. Don't ask, she said something about "elegant."

And dinner at Aunt K.'s looks wonderful...but we are drooling in anticiption of your menu for easter.


Amber said...

Hi, Asta!

erin said...

Asta, I'm watching an old movie called "The Awful Truth" with my grandma on TV right now and it made me think of you since it features a talented WFT and it takes place in NY. Have you ever seen this movie?

Those decorations look great! We don't do easter but you've inspired my girl to put out some bunnies in honor of spring coming soon. I know it's supposedly here already but it sure doesn't feel like it with all this snow!

Hope you have a happy Easter!

Lizzy said...

Wow, there sure are a lot of bunnies in your house today, Asta! Happy Easter!
