Easter tree and other happenings!

Hello lovely ladies!

This post is a bit late for 2 reasons

1 I'm not happy with the photos, this little 'tree' looks much prettier in real life!

2 We had expected and unexpected guests over Easter, which was lovely, but I was so busy cooking up a storm I never got the chance to take anymore photos, but never mind.

We had a lovely Easter filled with family visits to us.I didn't actually eat any chocolate over Easter. I didn't have an egg as I needed a fabric pen so the Hubster bought me a pen for my Easter gift and I'm so glad he did as I've been making these
I needed the pen for their little faces!

I couldn't buy a pen because of 'The Challenge' so I had a pen instead of an egg. See how I suffer for my work! Giggle, not really, my sister bought me an egg, bless her and I'm chuffing it as I write this post!
I have popped one of the Teddy Garlands in my Etsy shop

We also started working on the garden and mowed the grass for the first time! Just love that smell don't you? So fresh and you can smell Spring in the air, just love it!

Tomorrow I shall be on my little stall in Witney selling my goodies, I think it's meant to be a nice day, fingers crossed!

I have some new stock of vintage linens, a pretty tablecloth and some tray cloths for my stall.

I have really enjoyed looking at your blogs over Easter, although I could only hop on the computer when I had the odd spare minute, usually, early in the morning or late at night!
There have been some gorgeous Easter trees and Easter tables in blogland.
I don't mind not being able to buy home magazines when I have so many gorgeous blogs to read!
I'll tell you more about those tomorrow!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Oh I will look out for that post, as I have been wondering what you have to do, I know it's about not buying things from new, but that's all..x

I love those bright chickens & your tree is lovely. What a sweet garland.
My son was in chocolate heaven yesterday - Waitrose were selling off Easter eggs for 10p !
I was very clever over Easter and forgot to buy a joint of lamb to roast - so we had a pub supper out !
