the last days of easter...



So many have been complaining about easter comming around just too darn late this year. I couldnt disagree more... being a pagan easter for me, is all about new life, spring! So what better way to spend a few days off work in the sunshine? Enjoying the smells, the greens of spring?

Originally easter had nothing to do with the church, but the spring festivals were so incubated in people's way, they just had to work around it... I mean... ask yourselves why the easter bunny came to be? I sure know what bunnies do in spring, it's all in your biology book... in case you have forgotten... and it it's all about bringing about that new life :D
So bunnies are my favorite easter decor, and I am forever looking for more... This bunny-eggcup is a relic from my childhood... I think... it's german?

now this one is absolutely german, the newest addition to my easter decor. A gift from Libby, she brought it over for easter lunch. All the way from Germany. I love it :D

there is eggs and chicks about too! This little chick was found at a fleamarked!

a little yellow is nice. I actually love yellow, esp in flowers.


And my little Pixie girl is growing into a gorgeous Welsh Cob Pony. She sure is enjoying spring as well.... She's nearly 11months now. And I can't belive how wee she was when she was born. She's still the runt of the pack though :D
I hope you all had a sunny easter, and a brilliant time!

Så fint du har påskepynta. Likte veldig godt de enkle stillebenene du har satt opp. Veldig dekorativt det i glassklokka. Nydelig med de turkise fargene.

(har forresten et påske/vårinnlegg i dag jeg også)

Så ENIG med deg at påsken ALLTID burde vært så sent. Hærlig å ha god tid nå når våren virkelig springer ut for fult!!Vi får sende en søknad til noen som bestemme slikt, hvem det er lurer jeg litt på, paven, presidenten i USA???

Det har vært digg med sen påske, og varmen som fulgte med..=)
Opprinnelsen av påsken er delt opp i flere ting, og smørt sammen til en diger smørje.. Bunnys og chickens og egg har jo ingenting med den kristne påsken å gjøre, og omvendt. Det blir litt som med jula, -det blir klæsja sammen så alle blir involvert på hver sin måte.. =)
Bryr meg igrunn mindre og mindre.... hehe..
