Easter Goodness

(My favourite vintage Easter postcard that has the sweetest message, "With love to all and kisses to your four little angels".)
Hope everyone had a relaxing if pretty nippy weekend. Easter passed in a whir of school church services, family meals, friends visiting, plenty of chocolate, good fun and tons of snowflakes. As much as I love snow it does feels very wrong when Easter (even if its very early) makes me feel that winter is finally over.

We've had a lovely, long family weekend together and tomorrow Woody and I have our first child-free day together for two years! What the heck are we going to say to each other all day? The plan is to not do very much at all apart from a spot of shopping (a 40s outfit for Woody for the dance on Saturday), go for a cosy pint and read all of the paper - hurrah! The boys are off to their grandparents so they'll be having fun too.

Look what I found in my "bare" garden last week - beautiful primroses. I found them underneath a huge, nasty grass plant that cuts your fingers, so I'm pretty chuffed to swap it for these pretties.
I got a lovely Easter treat in the post from Tess at Driftwood and Daisies just before the weekend. I'm so sorry that my pictures of it are really duff. Its a treat for someone else so I can't show you what it is but she kindly sent me a very pretty necklace that I can't wait to wear. Do go and have a visit to her smashing blog and lovely Etsy site and buy handmade!

Enjoy the rest of the break and I'll be back with some pictures of the full dance attire soon!

Hey hun, love the Easter display in the jug, it's just gorgeous.
Sounds like you had a lovely weekend.
And thanks for the driftwood & daisies tip I popped over and picked up some beautiful coasters. She had some lovely items on there. I've added her to my favs now.
Hope you enjoyed your day together.
