Loving all these bright Spring colours


I know I've said it before,
but I really love these wonderful bright Spring colours!
They are so happy and make my heart sing♥

It's crazy, I know... 
We are in the middle of Autumn here in the southern hemisphere
and I still decorate as if it was Spring time☺.

Our beautiful warm days have cool mornings.
It's quite refreshing with 17°C/63°F
and then during the day we are lucky to enjoy

Queensland weather
Beautiful one day - Perfect the next☺

Big hugs

Easter 2014






 Easter is officially over for this time,
but I'll keep my décor up for a little longer... ☺
It's so bright and beautiful with all this yellow!

Today we have a wonderful sunny day here in my corner of the world.
My big boy is at school and my little princess busy at home.

Hubby and I have been doing plumbing.
Afterwards, we had sandwiches for lunch
- freshly baked sweetened rye bread with vintage cheddar cheese.


What are you all up to?

Back to school

First day of term 2!
Mummy Hen has to let her little chicken go... ☺
Feels weird to only have one little one left at home.

Back to normal routines
- no more sleep-ins to 7am lol

Luckily it's a short three day week 
due to ANZAC Day Public Holiday on Friday the 25th.

Have a great week everyone☺

Finally Easter in the heart of the home...

finally some Easter décor in our sit-down kitchen. 

The kitchen table was covered in toys, cars and our hockey game 
and I felt that it didn't feel like Easter at all.
- It was more like a messy kid's room than a place to enjoy good food.

Today, on Easter Monday - the last day of Easter, 
I had a major clean-up and decorated the whole area.


Yellow and cream feathers and 
a row of vintage paper chickens from my childhood 
casually placed on the shelf.

Soft pastels in the window - nesting eggs from IKEA.

On the kitchen table a yellow table cloth and
vintage candle rings from Sweden with lovely Spring colours 
- yellow, white and light green.


 Too bright to take photos in the kitchen, 
but you get the idea ☺

My first Easter egg... still intact! 

Some antique Easter décor from my late paternal grandfather (1890-1980)
and my late maternal grandmother (1921-2011)

I so enjoy seeing these old ones being used.

Antique Easter witch and chickens.

More eggs and a bunch of chickens.

Love the bright colours of the eggs.

Some of the chicks are really old and tired now...
but I still love them 
- and they are going to stay in the family for many more years to come!

Eggs and witches - so crucial in the Swedish Easter décor!

My maternal grandmother's colourful eggs...
I normally hang them up, 
but this year they are beautiful in a vintage depression glass dish.

I think I'll wait a day or two a couple of weeks, 
until I take everything down...
When do you pack away your décor?

Easter hugs from this side of the planet♥
