Tommorow our sunshine girl Little Bun turns ELEVEN. To say she's gone to bed very excited is an understatement. How perfect is it that school broke up today and so no school on her birthday. Her birthday has come full circle as she was born at home on Maundy Thursday. 

Alongside birthday plans, there's been Easter to sort out and a farm party with a picnic for 10 kids.

We've enjoyed adding Easter cheer here and there.

The Bun's decorated a few twigs to turn into an Easter Tree and then went all out mental by covering the cupboard with every fluffy chick they could find. I've been editing it down today and they don't seem to have noticed - yet.

I've also added a few new things. Pretty pink straws and delicious stripey cups to add even more cheer to the birthday table.

Anything to bring the sunshine in at the moment wouldn't you say? Right now it's got to the silly cold bit. On Monday I lit the coal fire first thing and Alfie sat on the hearth singeing himself. He didn't argue when I dragged his bed in for him. He has one heck of a good life that boy.

See you over the weekend sometime I'm sure. I'm busy sorting out my etsy shop with tunics and plan to have them all ready before the weeks out. Before that we'll be busy partying hard 11 year old style.

    We have just about managed to easter up the dinningroom, some fallen twigs from our local park foraged yesterday in small flurries of snow. A bit of white paint and glitter and press go on the girls with the decs! lol. I have a few more little eggs for them to decorate.

    I love how your house looks, it always looks so happy vibrant and welcoming with the easter decorations it looks even more jolly.

    I don't blame your dog for not wanting to move from the fire. Its too cold brrr.

    Happy Easter to you all.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
