Thank you too for bearing with me last week and my non post. I am feeling much less squibbly this week and far more myself again. Life is returning to whatever it is that passes for normal in these parts once again and for that I am very grateful. Your kindness and support certainly helped.
Thank you as well for your thoughts on my post yesterday. I do appreciate all that you had to say. I am still mulling things over and will take my time in making a decision about what I want to do. The overall consensus from you seems to be that you like a mix of things, which is good, because this blog is definitely a mix of things isn't it! Once I have thought further about where I am going I will let you know and in the meantime will continue to mix things up.
Yesterday I did finally manage to load a video to the internet, but don't get excited and go looking for it because I deleted it. It was just a test, but I now know that I can do it which if I want to do videos is a good thing isn't it.
One other thing before we start! Next Friday will of course be Good Friday as I am sure you are aware. So for me that isn't a day to be online and blogging. I will therefore not be posting next Friday and there will not be a link up. However, Five On Friday will of course return the week after so we can all start April together Fiveing as usual.
Hope you understand.
On with the post!
The mantel is once again decorated! All dressed up for Easter with things that I already had. The daffodils were in use last year and have been waiting to make their appearance once again. The tulips will need to be replaced before Easter, but I am sure that I can get some more.
Everywhere seems to be covered in eggs and chicks. Including the dining table. This lot look very at home don't they. I put the tray onto a cake stand and then I can move it easily without spilling them all everywhere! One of my old mandalas adds a colourful touch as well.
The sideboard is home to my Easter Tree this year. The branches are silk forsythia that I have used for several years now. They look quite effective I think and are always in bloom no matter what time Easter actually us.
I think that I have enough eggs hanging on the branches now. What do you think!!!
There are little groupings of things elsewhere too. The chicks have spread themselves all around the room and made all sorts of nooks home! You can never have too many chicks can you?
It is also bunnies a go go time! I made all of these a few years ago and bring them out each Easter. They are old favourites now.
I know, I know, it is Five On Friday and here I am with a sixth thing! Well my excuse is that I was lacking a fifth item last week so I have carried one over!!! I thought you would like to see these daffs with their frilly edged trumpets. I assumed when I bought them that they would be the normal type of yellow daffodils, so these were a lovely surprise.
So that is it for this week! All things Easter have landed in our home and we are ready for the start of spring and all good things that are to come. I hope that you are too!
In case I don't see you in the meantime and as I will not be here next Friday, I do hope that you have a wonderful Easter, that it brings great things to you and yours and that there are new beginnings, new life and that the sun will be shining upon you!
Hope you have a good weekend and that all is well with you!!
