Wow, we’ve had an exciting Easter Weekend over here!
Eggs galore, with a few gloriously watery sunbeams…
Shani had blown these amazing eggs and painted
them (Blog post to follow)

We had a lovely time… friends, family, chocolate….
As for Decorating….At our home it has not been
too over the top, just some sweet little decorations
in our fireplace.

We spent a *lovely* day today wandering through
Malvern’s Flea Market.
It was my very first time at one of these things.
My BBF Vikki of Lemoncurd Photography
had encouraged me to go for it!
I was a little intimidated, but after a little while
I picked up some AMAZING
treasures….
These beads were too enticing to resist.

The other thing that stole my heart was this adorable quilt.
It reminded me of one of my favourite bloggers,
Mrs Rachel Denbow of Smile and Wave.
Read about her thrifted quilts here and here.
Find her gorgeously handmade wedding quilt here.

The colours, combinations of patterns and the lovely seller
made this quilt come home with me.
I’m a great admirer of a prettily put together quilt.

This darling quilt had me at hello.
