Easter Time

 I always love the spring time and now is my favourite time for decorating the house..........we have gathered together lots of spring and easter decorations....some i have had for years, some i've bought and some i've made....and of course lots of flowers too...........
 ...............this new little bunny is a very tiny version of my sugar bunny pattern........
 .............very tiny indeed as you can see...here she is sitting next to a normal sized spool of sewing cotton.........(the sugar bunny pattern is in my book *pretty patchwork gifts*).....
 ...............i've also made some more little button houses in pretty fabrics.........
 .............and some more little fabric birds are flying in too.........a green one and  pink one....
 ...............i couldn't resist buying this sweet egg box containing perfect pastel eggs.............
 ...............arranging the white easter tree...............it's not finished yet, it is a slow process getting it just right, even with help from all the family ;)......
 ............this weekend was sunny and gorgeous here in the uk and we were outside most of the time making the most of it.......my little grandchildren were here for a sleepover (though they live nearby!) and we had some lovely times together.............sunshine, ice creams, lots of games and fun.....
 ..............the easter egg wreath is up, making its reappearance once again....i love it and wish i could keep it up all year round really :) .....
 .................beautiful rainbow tulips......a special gifts from my dearies.............
 ...............and ready for the easter breakfast table........some little birdie decorated egg cosies.....
 ...............this morning i did some gardening............i sowed some flower seeds and re potted some plants.............and then i picked some flowers from the cutting garden..............
................thank you for visiting me here in my bit of blogland dear readers, and thank you to those who leave me such lovely comments...........wishing you a happy week ahead enjoying the spring (or autumn if you are reading from the other side of the world).........happy easter.....back soon xxxxxxxx

Helen,
Love the sweet little bunny and all your lovely Easter pretties. As I have said many times, you inspire me in many ways and I thank you. Need to get my little tree out and get it decorated. Spent some time this morning cleaning up one of my garden beds before it begins to rain. How do so many weeds grow during the winter?
Will be working on finishing another quilt this afternoon.
Have a wonderful week and thank you for sharing once again.

The Sugar Bunny I made from your pattern has been taking pride of place in my room, helping us celebrate Spring! I am glad that you and yours have been having happy times together, Helen, and hope that your happy days continue. xx

I adore your diminutive bunny, Helen! She would love my table.. lol. I need a wreath like yours.. my old spring wreath has seen better days. I hope your Easter is just wonderful.. enjoys those precious grandchildren on the egg hunting day. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Bee Lady said...

I love the bunnies and the Easter decorations. I have an Easter tree that I put up too, but it consists of cutting branches out of bushes, putting them in a pail, and then decorating it. We've had a lot of storms lately, including right at this moment, so it's been hard to get outside. Your spring flowers are so pretty. I'm so ready for Spring.

Happy and sweet as always, Helen! I love your little bunny, birds and of course the paste eggs! I'm really Easter person but would be nice to put some decoration. Our Easter will be filled with puppies because Paris and London come for two weeks. I wish you Happy Easter! x Teje

Such a wonderful post, Helen, as always...I hope you have a great Easter and that you enjoy the time with your loved ones.

Sam I Am...... said...

Yes, such lovely colors of Spring and it is reflected in your makings and your decorating. I love your little tiny bunny girl! The fabrics you choose are always just perfect for your projects. I have to get out the little bird I won in one of your giveaways and hang it on my Easter tree and maybe make some more! They are so precious! I also won some Cath Kidson ribbon from you and I used it in the little mini quilts I've been working on for Easter....it was just perfect. You have such high quality products in the UK...the ribbon was so nice to work with. Have a wonderful Easter holiday with your family and I hope the weather is nice.

I love the bunny and the polka dotted eggs. So springy and refreshing. Looking at these felt like a breath of fresh air.

I'm feeling a bit under the weather (spring sniffles) but a visit to your blog and seeing all the charming creativity is the best medicine! Thank you.

Wood Fairy said...

Lovely little bunny and must be very fiddly to make one so small. I miss my bunny terribly ! She was given to a special three year old though and is much loved. All your colourful decorations are beautiful.

Everything looks so lovely and bursting with colour and life, Helen. I love your little bunnies. it wouldn't be Easter without them. and the flowers look beautiful. You won me over a couple of years ago with your pretty Bellis daisy plans and I have been building up my collection. The bright reds, pinky creams and whites look a real picture. Thank you for the inspiration :-)
Have a very happy Easter.
