It's Easter, peeps!
Absolutely one of my favorite holidays. From a religious perspective, Easter is a spring festival that celebrates one of the central tenets of the Christian faith: the resurrection of Christ. It's the oldest Christian holiday and the most important day of the church year.
From a personal perspective, the imagery of baby bunnies, chicks, pretty tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils, beautiful baskets filled with the soft colors of Easter candy, is absolute perfection.
All year long, I stockpile Easter themed goodies.
The white bunny lanterns are from Martha Stewart's holiday line at Grandin Road.
I like having my chicks all lined up in a row.
As do my friends...
Kim, Musings from Kim K., was kind enough to send me a few darling items for Easter. Including, a vintage bluebird sewing card, hand-felted egg, and a whimsically crafted wee favor basket.
The little pink bird atop the felted egg is such a sweet detail. Thank you, Kim!
I was the lucky winner of Ms. Helen Philipps' recent give-away. A sweet Greengate tin, flower pins, floral buttons, and a clever pin cushion in pretty spring-like colors made its way here safely from England. Thank you, Helen!
Last Easter, Julie Collings was kind enough to send me a box of fun Easter crafting items. I saved it for this year, and what fun to open the box. Everything you need to craft some darling favors. Thank you, Julie!
Are you getting your craft on for Easter?
