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