Preparing for Easter









A little Rebecca walked into my home this morning and threw her hands up in the air and looked around our kitchen. She said... " Suzanne your house looks so beautiful..You've coloured it all in!". She is only 2 years old and how beautifully put. We have spent our week creating the mood for our Easter celebration. I received a very generous Maileg parcel in the post the other day and have enjoyed having these treasures to work with. The 'Elsa Beskow' felt eggs were brought from Etsy. These are from the seller 'darialvovsky'. Beautifully made and really worth purchasing. Olivia is reading 'Goody O'Grumpity' by Carol Ryrie Brink for her school work at the moment and today she has spent the morning making the spice cake.

Wishing you all a creative Easter preparation.

Love to you
Suzanne

Do you mind sharing which esty store you purchased the eggs from? I would love a set for next year.

Oh my goodness that is such a delightful way to put things! Worthy of framing:-)

I miss those days of decorating for Easter--I still hope to one day be closer to the grands and make it HAPPY again. I loved seeing your beautiful home and thought...how blessed I am to have this wonderful friend, so gifted and generous of heart. This last year would have been unbearable without knowing you.
Happy Easter, love you, XOXO

Oh my- I am in love with the Easter tree and all the beautiful decorations. Love the fabric eggs- they are my favorites! ( bet you made those!?)

Your children are so lucky to have a Mommy who brings the spirit of the holidays into the home. I am wishing you a lovely Easter celebration.

I remember reading a blog post of a women that made a bird's nest that you could eat. Apparently it tasted really good too.
