Easter... a peaceful celebration






We had a wonderful Easter weekend. It was peaceful and quiet. The children had made some lovely paper Easter egg balls which I turned into a mobile and hung up in the kitchen. The kitchen is where it all happens...The heart of the home. We hung up some vintage Easter banners and up went our Easter tree. I decided on making each child a lovely Easter basket of goodies that awaited them at the breakfast table when they woke up. Our dear old chickens provided us with eggs for our new vintage egg cups. I planted some wheat grass for our table display. The kitchen table ended up being used for all three meals of the day. I have said this many times before . Celebrations are what connect us, they enrich us and in our family , make us feel very alive. I do carefully explain each celebration to my children. I know they take everything in to one day share with their children.

Our Autumn has been very wet. It rains daily but our weather is still warm. I can see those wood burning fire places just waiting to be lit...As far as I am concerned, they have to wait a little longer..

I love that chicken's hair do! I often wonder how it must be to celebrate a holiday that is so strongly associated with spring and new life in the autumn of your year - I assume you are so used to it that for you it is associated with autumn and it doesn't seem strange. Did I ever thank you for the valentine and the lovely brooch? I have a fear I didn't. Well, I wore the brooch for a solid week - and then my 2yo wore it, and now we have to share it - she loves it as much as I do. Thanks so much.
