This will be William's first Easter Egg Hunt. So "Thank You" to Bunny Mummy http://bunnymummy-jacquie.blogspot.co.uk/ and her lovely blog for the inspiration for the Crochet Rabbit. He makes me smile and will be the perfect prize at the end of the hunt around the garden!
Amazing that I can follow a pattern when I really need to. Well almost anyway. After all odd ears must be all the rage!
A pretty little bucket,some chocolate of course and we are ready. I can't wait. The weather has been so dire of late when William has been visiting that he has not been able to potter around the garden. So that will be lovely. You know how it goes. Pick up the gravel and throw it on the lawn. Pull up the flowers etc etc. Perfect!
So the house is ready. Flowers,candles,birds,the Easter tree and some real family treasures. The little tin was my children's when they were tiny. A gift from my Mum for Easter. It's that circle of life again!
Loving this little Britvic glass that was in Dear Iris' cupboard.
And this jelly mould. I have such happy memories of making jelly as a child. Jelly was great, blancmange not so good and junket indescribably horrible! If you have ever tried it I think you might agree.
The Easter tree is in a little higher position than usual and this year I found these pretty little glass eggs in a lovely little Vintage shop in town.Just one but I like to add to my collection slowly and try to remember why I bought each one.
This was the picture she posted on Facebook this morning. A great place for an Easter Egg hunt!
Whilst I was crocheting the rabbit for William I thought about her. Whenever I think of her I think of the sea and her love of scuba diving. I have been busy joining hexagons to make balls lately and I thought the shape perfect for a turtle. One of her favourites.Perfect and how lucky we are to have a constant stream of inspiration on the internet. So, Google,google,google and here we have it.http://www.naturallycaron.com/projects/turtle_toy/turtle_toy_1.html. Now, I have to make the legs and tail and William is due --- so that might take me a while but I will pop a photo of him on Facebook tomorrow and she will know every stitch was hooked with lots of love.
Happy Easter everyone. Thank you for all your lovely posts showing all your lovely Easter traditions and beautiful spots.
