Hippity Hoppity Easter's On It's Way!

Pin It


 Happy Easter Weekend! WHAT?!?!?   Easter?!?!? What happened to the month of March?!  Honestly...this Sunday is Easter...and Monday is APRIL!?  What the heck!?


 Not that I'm really lamenting putting the cold, gray, snowy days of March behind me. I'm rather enjoying the whole "out like a lamb" part of the month. The early March "in like a lion" thing...notsomuch.


March is always a crazy month for me. It's end of quarter at work, there's usually a spring break (or, in my case this year, TWO) thrown in with the unpredictable weather, a little snow, some rain, maybe some sunshine, the first day of spring and, usually, Easter.



 I've been head down at my day job for the last ten days. I've been working a bunch of hours and trying to spend at least a day or two with each of my sons on their respective spring breaks (which, for some reason,  did not coincide this year) so I'll admit that, for all of my careful planning, Easter snuck up on me this year.


I'm running around today, finishing last minute transactions at work, shopping for the final items for Easter dinner, boiling eggs for the dyeing that will take place tomorrow after my oldest arrives home from school, cooking and baking and cleaning

                                   ....and finishing the decorating and tablescaping in the dining room...which brings me to the source of the darling basket that you see in these photos...my friend Becky from Timewashed, fine hand made and vintage goods.  She's got such a wonderful eye for detail and she makes the most beautiful things. Bits of lace, scraps of ribbon...sigh.


 How could I possibly resist?!  You're right. I couldn't....and you don't have to either! Visit her Etsy Shop! She's got lavender sachets, and gift tags and pin cushions...and beautiful baskets...like the one that now makes me smile from its spot on my dining room side board.


Becky didn't compensate me for this post, in fact, she didn't even know that I was writing it until this morning! I just wanted to share a little bit of Easter Joy as I'm getting ready for the holiday, celebrating the real reason for the season and enjoying spring...and time with my family! Thanks, Becky...I'm blessed to have you as a friend!


I'll (hopefully) be back tomorrow to show you my table! Happy Good Friday, friends!
