I have put my comments back

because without your 



blogging is a lonely




 You make my day
 a perfect day.


I'll be back after Easter.

Dearest Anita!
We may have had to start a "Castles, Crowns and Cottages Not Able To Comment Anonymous" group. ;)

It's like going to your favorite gallery or ballet and not being able to say how you much you love the exhibit or performance!

If you need to turn comments off now and then, go for it! I'll just click "Google +" love.

Happy Easter to you and all of your loves!

Bonnie said...

I felt as if I was just becoming acquainted with you and you lovely talent. I do hope all is well with you. May you have a beautiful Easter. Bonnie

Hello, Anita!
HAPPY EASTER to you and Ruben!

Purple Flowers said...

YAY! If responding to each and every reply takes too much of your daily time. Then don't. I don't mean to sound harsh, but many Bloggers, including myself don't reply back. If there's something that I want to further discuss, then I e-mail. Just a thought.
Wishing you a glorious weekend.

Deborah said...

Awww my happy to be able to come here and that your comments are open again...;)
Happy easter sweet these cute little bunnies!

All my heart,
Deborah xoxoxoox

Karen Harvey Cox said...

Tish Jett said...

Thank you for your return, your visit. It seems you lost hope in me. But, you may recall, I made a promise some time ago. . . explaining then that I couldn't explain more. But I do keep my promises.

I am sorry you gave up on me. It was sad to see my disappearance here, but I suppose c'est la vie. N'est-ce pas?

I hope all is well and full of joy in your world. You do have the most extraordinary blog. You are talented, gifted.

Pam @ over50feeling40 said...

YES!! So happy to be able to comment on your amazing work Anita!! Hope your Easter was awesome!

Tish Jett said...

Dear Anita,

I'm assuming my old e-mail address for you won't work. Please e-mail me -- we need to talk. (


Renae at simple sequins said...

Hahahaha, Anita, that bunny at the end sort of scared me. I jumped.

Nice to see your comments clicking away here, again. Have a great evening and see you tomorrow, [on my newest post, that is].

Anonymous said...

As long as you are happy and at peace, my dear, this makes me happy too. I do agree that it makes a world of difference to have the communication lines open at both ends.
So much life here always.
Remember the magic word...among many...BALANCE. :)
I love you, Anita fairest. :)

Red Rose Alley said...

Heeheehee that little bunny surprised me! He's so cute. I'm glad that you have your comments back on, and I'm sure you feel more connected with your dear blog friends.

Did you have a nice Easter, dear? There were clouds in the sky, but still we had a beautiful day.

Much love to you on this first day of April.

Hi Anita!

I've been gone for a while:) It's nice to be back! I JUST posted something but.. it's not showing an update on the blog roll. is a pain and this is the second time this has happened.. oh well!

Your tulips and little bunny is darling. We've been blessed to have the most beautiful(clear and sunny) Easter weekend here in Seattle. Usually it's cold and rainy.

It's nice to be here Anita.. always enjoy your poetry and photographs.


hi-d said...

Yay! Yay! Yay! I am so glad you did this...we all miss being able to comment on your beautiful posts.

Thanks so much for your visit. We had a wonderful Easter. It was an absolutely gorgeous day - sunny and in the 70's!!!!

It sounds like you and Ruben had a lovely day as well.

Love to you!!!

Coquetíssima said...

Dear, Anita:

Thank you for your sweet comment!! I'm too busy studying and working on a mini stock bears to the shop online. The shop is slow, because the study takes me a long time. But when the store is ready, I'll call you and you will see the new bears :)

I love this post, this rabbit and these tulips, are lovely like your blog!

Kisses, Anita! Have a nice day!

I'm a new reader. Love the blog. And yes, don't let the haters get you down. As a former mommy blogger, I'e done the comments on and off thing. But one nice, heartfelt comment can make up for a lot of trolls.

PURA VIDA said...

the best news I've heard!!! yayayayayay!!!!

vicki archer said...

So happy to be commenting again, Anita...
I love reading not only your post (of course) but also all your readers interactions... that adds another wonderful dimension... :) xv

Renae at simple sequins said...

Ohhh, That bunny is so real, actual size or something. I still think he will pounce on me. Along with kitties and doggies I have owned bunnies [years ago] so I shouldn't be startled, but that face, OMyGosh! IT GETS ME.

Thank you dear Anita for your compliment of my little fam and their cutenesses!!!!!

Ivy Clad said...

YES! Do you know, on your last post I instinctively looked for the "comment" button forgetting for a minute that it was not there. I know how diligent you are to reply back when someone comments, but even if you did not always have the time to do so, I would love to comment anyway just to express thoughts or appreciation for what you've written.

This really warms my heart! Xo, Keri

hi-d said...

Hello Anita,

I hope you get some warmer weather soon. We are due for some rain in the next couple days, so it's nice to get out and enjoy it while we can.

I am due Aug., I'm 4 1/2 months pregnant...Already half way there. I need to go add that little tid bit to my post. :)

I'm super excited tomorrow...whatever the gender of the baby will be. I hope to do a post tomorrow night when I find out or on Thursday.

Hope you are having a good week!

Sonja said...

I've done the same thing Anita. It's hard sometimes as it is very time consuming yet something we WANT to do, to visit all of our blogging friends, but there are times when we just can't do it all. But the fellowship wins out, and the comments continue. :)

I am so happy to see you back and letting the comments flow. You bless so many!

Catherine Robinson said...

I'm very pleased ;-)
You make my day a perfect day too...I hope you had a wonderful Easter, Anita.

Anonymous said...

I wondered if you would feel that way! It's hard not to leave a comment when you read a post that moves you, you want to let the writer know. Hope your Easter was awesome!! xo

koralee said... we can all get back to normal..I was sad when you took them off. It is always fun to pop over for a fast hello before I start my day. I got your email today...thank you my friend...have a very very blessed day. xoxo

Thank you so much for viewing my patio inspiration post. I'm so glad you like it because, I agree with you, OUR TASTES are so much the same.
It will be a lot of work to shape the "before" into the "after", but completely worth it. I agree with you about the wide stones for the patio floor. They are my favorite. Thanks again for contributing!

Barbara said...

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. Your blog is so beautiful you have inspired me to try harder.

Good morning Anita..I've returned to add my comment now that you're back! I hope you and Ruben have had a wonderful Easter (I'd love to be sitting amongst those pretty bluebells right now!)
Happy Thursday!

Bilancia Designs said...

This was a wise decision for you.
I believe you need the support of your friends...and who doesn't love to read, hear, feel...the warmth of a kind word now and then?
It appears you were sadly missed. What a lovely feeling! :)
Love to you, my friend. xo

Renae at simple sequins said...

My Anita friend! You are so funny about those sparkle jeans. You know I am a bit paranoid when I wear them tho. I am afraid my dog will scratch off the sparkles or I will as I cross my legs, etc. They stick up you know? They must be stuck on with major major super glue. I only wear them on my posts and for special occasions; out to eat or to a party or just to shop in. They are really fun to wear when you go shopping. But I am still in shock that they were only $1 ! ! ! !

Oh and btw, the bunny is getting a bit not so shocking, finally. hahahahaha.

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

Oh my...I've missed too many posts. And now this. What made you decide to un and re-enable your coments?! Hope everything is ok. And that you had a lovely Easter. Love the first picture of the girl in a field of blue.
Must keep reading to catch up!
