Easter Thoughts

The temps much cooler and not a hint of sunshine.. my thoughts still traveled toward planning Easter..as I was making plans to have my sweet little granddaughter, Olivia... When I am in the thought process it is best to make notes... I do not decorate extremely for Easter as I do not have too man decorations.. I will just tuck a couple objects in with everyday ... The picture above is found on http://www.hgtv.com I loved the use of brown transferware and the chocolate bunny and the brown egg... So lovely and yummy... Many of you will be making a Easter Egg Tree... History.com explains the Easter egg is symbolic of rebirth, which is an appropriate symbol for the rising of Christ... Decorating eggs , is a custom that dates back to the 13th century... A Easter Egg Hunt is always on the agenda in our home...
The picture of the cute blow out eggs decorated with napkins can be found on http://www.marthastewart.com Complete directions can be found on this site on paper napkin-decoupage-eggs...
Wishing you a very nice day as I am off to finish some chores as we are having guests in this evening.....

I don't decorate too much either when it's Easter, but I'll definitely put some nice flowers in a vase and I still like to make something nice, the idea is partly there. We had some lovely weather over here, it's really spring now! Thanks for your lovely post Marietta!

Such pretty photos Marietta! I love the eggs in the baskets. Easter will be here before we know it and I HOPE along with it some warmer weather.

I also am hoping for some warmer weather. I only have on granddaughter left who thinks she is isn't to old to hunt eggs so don't know if we will hunt eggsd this year or not. But I think the girls would like to make the eggs with napkins. Thanks for the idea.
