easter weekend

I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend! All too quickly those four days have passed, between entertaining friends, giving the apartment a good spring clean, working on the balcony garden and just doing all those small chores and to do’s that fall by the wayside in busy days and pile up, staring at you accusingly from the to do lists and corners of your home. Maybe I should just not make lists. But then, I fear I would never get anything done.

Anyway, I have finally gotten the better of my spring tiredness. We had an Easter brunch with friends on our balcony, the strong spring sun burning my nose so badly that my face glowed all weekend. I made tasty spring lamb cakes from my mom’s vintage baking tins. Being a very bad blogger (but a better hostess for it), I completely forgot to take photos.

We dyed some eggs, trying to make patterns with rubber bands and found out it’s one of those things that looks a lot easier than it is. I vowed right after that next year I would put some thought and research into it and do a better job.

This time last year I was on a dutch island, going on long beach walks and watching the snow fall. A far cry from this year’s warmth and flowers.

    I’m glad you had a wonderful and productive Easter weekend. Your eggs look beautiful by the way. I don’t know what you were shooting for but that was a cool idea with the rubber bands and the colors on your eggs are great. We used these gel sticks that made a complete mess in my kitchen (that was my first and last time using gel sticks) and dipped eggs in regular dye. Last year we used water colors and paint brushes with Anna and that was also lots of fun!

      I haven’t used gel sticks before, but that sounds like fun too. I was shooting at a much more patterned look but it wasn’t as easy as I imagined it🙂

      Thank you🙂 It was actually a color bought in an organic food store by a friend. You had to boil the eggs in a colored water bath.
