Easter weekend







It's Easter weekend, and as far as weekends are concerned this has been a really great one. Warm and sunny, bare legs, plenty of ice coffee, lots of fun, good food and yesterday we even went to see a circus. 

We don't have a ton of Easter traditions, but a few things are important to me. First I love having Easter egg hunts, although this year I made a total fool of myself since I was completely inept in finding my candy filled egg, despite being given numerous clues. So when everyone else was munching on sweets I was still running around the apartment trying to find my egg. Secondly I always use a yellow and turquoise vintage table cloth when we eat  our dinner, which is the only time we have a table cloth, except possibly for Christmas. And thirdly we usually have some traditional Easter twigs decorated with feathers. The kids always makes the best decorations, it was great when they were in kindergarten and always came home with some fun seasonal craft. Not so much anymore, but I love the little yellow faces that my daughter did for the twigs.

  2. Those handpainted eggs are beautiful! Sure beats those tacky plastic eggs that are ubiquitous at American Easter celebrations (which I happen to use, too). But no more, for me. I am inspired to do something a little more pretty, a little more meaningful.
