what a beautiful transition. But Claudine, you always make a happy difference.

Congratulations! I hope you love it. I think it is adorable!



and it's beautiful...
and even more beautiful when you bring a bit of it indoors

As a child growing up in England, the crocus and primrose were the first harbingers of spring

country living
bring a few bulbs in to grow inside, like crocus, hyacinth or daffodil
tuck a nest here and there, and some speckled eggs

good housekeeping
and fresh flowers

I really don't decorate for Easter - but I do love to add Spring touches and fresh flowers.  My lilacs, wisteria and pink jasmine are all in bloom in my garden.  Three fragrant favorites - I think I'm in heaven. 

 I also love creative ideas for Easter table settings.  Here are a few new ideas I've discovered that I would like to try this year - I thought perhaps you would enjoy them, too
