Love, love, love Easter

After Christmas, Easter has to be my favourite time of year.
I love the pastel colours, the chocolate, the Spring lambs, the baby bunnies in the field......
But i have to say that i am always disappointed with what the suppliers for my shop have to offer - catalogue after catalogue gets thrown in to my recycling bin!
So this year the shop will be decorated with pots of Spring flowers and all the handmade items i can make and anything that i can gather from others!

I have started with some Easter cards......

Cute!!
I have lots of other things on the production line and will reveal all over the next few days.

I have also used some fabric that i have been unable to cut up due to the fact that i love it so much!!
It has been transformed in to heart garlands filled with lavender - they are in a box waiting to go off to Country Living Fair with Samantha x

along with a new flock of my lavender birds xxx


As i continue to pack boxes ready for our move to Scotland, i am amazed at how much Vintage China that i have gathered over the years. There are so many items that have been hidden at the back of cupboards for too long - i am in the process of deciding if they should be sold or make the journey to Scotland.

Any waifs and strays will soon be on my website looking for a new home.......may be worth a peek x

See you soon

I love Easter too! Infact I almost think I like it more than Christmas. I think the pretty colours, flowers and chocolate have a lot to do with it but I also like the fact that it's not commercial like Christmas.
I really like your easter cards. They're very sweet. Hope your things sell well at the Spring Fair.
