Easter is coming and now I'm ready for it.
Yesterday I decided to work outside on the deck. I cleaned the furniture, filled the planters with fresh potting soil and swept the deck. I was still feeling pretty peppy, so I came in and started "getting Easter out" I'll show you more pictures from day to day...so the posts aren't so full of pictures.the first is our Easter egg tree. This little tree sits in our breakfast nook and is up year round. I decorate it with lots of things. It's mostly a woodland tree with berries, cones and things I find in the yard. But today...it's filled with my Easter egg collection.
This is a little bunny village that I painted probably 40 yrs ago. It's made of balsa wood. I got the kit at Lee Ward's in Elgin, Illinois. Lee Wards was a huge store with all kinds of crafting supplies...Since then Michael's and Hobby Lobby have opened up on a far smaller scale. I used to love Lee Ward's and spent a lot of time there.
So, there's a sample of things to come. I love spring and everything it brings. Daffodils, tulips, warmer weather, sunshine, rainy days, and of course...Easter. The pastel colors are so welcome now...pretty soon the bright colors of summer will be upon us. I want to enjoy the subtle touches of spring.
