Loving all these bright Spring colours






 

I know I've said it before,
but I really love these wonderful bright Spring colours!
They are so happy and make my heart sing♥

It's crazy, I know... 
We are in the middle of Autumn here in the southern hemisphere
and I still decorate as if it was Spring time☺.

Our beautiful warm days have cool mornings.
It's quite refreshing with 17°C/63°F
and then during the day we are lucky to enjoy
28-29°C/82-84°F.

Queensland weather
Beautiful one day - Perfect the next☺

Big hugs

Easter 2014



 

 

  
 


 
 

  



 Easter is officially over for this time,
but I'll keep my décor up for a little longer... ☺
It's so bright and beautiful with all this yellow!

***
Today we have a wonderful sunny day here in my corner of the world.
My big boy is at school and my little princess busy at home.

Hubby and I have been doing plumbing.
Teamwork!
Afterwards, we had sandwiches for lunch
- freshly baked sweetened rye bread with vintage cheddar cheese.

Yum☺

What are you all up to?

Back to school



First day of term 2!
Mummy Hen has to let her little chicken go... ☺
Feels weird to only have one little one left at home.

Back to normal routines
- no more sleep-ins to 7am lol

Luckily it's a short three day week 
due to ANZAC Day Public Holiday on Friday the 25th.

Have a great week everyone☺

Finally Easter in the heart of the home...

Wow, 
finally some Easter décor in our sit-down kitchen. 

The kitchen table was covered in toys, cars and our hockey game 
and I felt that it didn't feel like Easter at all.
- It was more like a messy kid's room than a place to enjoy good food.

So.
Today, on Easter Monday - the last day of Easter, 
I had a major clean-up and decorated the whole area.

Tadaaaa...


Yellow and cream feathers and 
a row of vintage paper chickens from my childhood 
casually placed on the shelf.




   
Soft pastels in the window - nesting eggs from IKEA.




On the kitchen table a yellow table cloth and
vintage candle rings from Sweden with lovely Spring colours 
- yellow, white and light green.


 

 Too bright to take photos in the kitchen, 
but you get the idea ☺


My first Easter egg... still intact! 



  
Some antique Easter décor from my late paternal grandfather (1890-1980)
and my late maternal grandmother (1921-2011)


I so enjoy seeing these old ones being used.


Antique Easter witch and chickens.


More eggs and a bunch of chickens.


Love the bright colours of the eggs.


Some of the chicks are really old and tired now...
but I still love them 
- and they are going to stay in the family for many more years to come!


Eggs and witches - so crucial in the Swedish Easter décor!


My maternal grandmother's colourful eggs...
I normally hang them up, 
but this year they are beautiful in a vintage depression glass dish.

I think I'll wait a day or two a couple of weeks, 
until I take everything down...
When do you pack away your décor?

Easter hugs from this side of the planet♥
