Easter Tree

Now unlike my Christmas decorations which take up several large boxes in the loft, my Easter decorations are a much smaller small in fact that they seem to have got completely lost in the mass of stuff stored in the roof.

However, a couple of weeks ago my mum gave me these lovely duck egg blue speckled egg decorations which I love.  Yesterday I set about making my Easter Tree but the eggs alone left the tree looking rather sparse so I raided my fabric stash and found some perfect yellow gingham and light blue cotton with tiny hearts on it.  A few roughly cut strips and natty knots and my Easter Tree was complete.

Happy Easter x

Bandanas and Fat Cows

Last weekend we had a lovely morning at the Ruby's Fat Cow Fund sale.  I enjoyed the lovely cakes and hot chocolate, Miss E picked up a bargain wetsuit ready for surfing later in the year, Miss M came home with some gorgeous purple sparkly pumps and both had their faces painted.

Beautiful Butterflies

It's officially now Springtime, I have vases of fabulous tulips in the house, Easter is just around the corner, Miss M's homework was to write a Springtime Riddle...yet we have frost and snow! So I've been cutting out butterfly shapes which will become gorgeous, fluttery butterfly hair clips ready for pinning up summery sun bleached hair. I think these are calling out to be made in lemon yellow and soft mauve too so I'll share these when they've joined these happy white and pistachio ones.

I've just looked it up and apparently from my very limited research, basically a quick google search, the collective noun for butterflies is swarm, rabble, lek or kaleidoscope. I have to say I'm not too keen on swarm or lek but I love a kaleidoscope of just conjures up wonderful images of colours mingling and merging together. As for a rabble, this just makes me smile as I associate this word with an unruly, disorganised, shirts hanging out mob of mischief making youths...I can't think of a less rabble like certainly makes you think of butterflies in a complete different light doesn't it?
