The Joy Of Easter
In Austria, it marks the beginning of springtime as well.
Even now that I live in the southern hemisphere and we are approaching the end of summer I still associate it, curiously enough, with springtime.
As they say: Old habits die hard :)
I love to bring this spirit of joy and celebration to our home and would like to share these pictures with you.
It was not easy to find a special dye for Easter eggs, so in the end, after looking in many shops and supermarkets, I had to boil the eggs and simply paint them afterwards with food dye and not dye them during boiling as usual.
This is why the coloring is a bit irregular but it adds a little bit of personality to it, don't you think? :)
Most of my adornments miraculously survived the transport from Italy to Peru, so I was able to arrange a little easter tree.
Sadly, some of the most precious adornments, which were hand-painted by my grandmother, didn't make it.
Here is one of the "survivors"
And here is one of the less fortunate ones
Anyhow, on Sunday we will enjoy a nice Easter Brunch "Al Fresco" with still warm weather and (hopefully) sunshine.
We will be enjoying these cupcakes we found at a local pastry shop, which are all handmade and really cute.
Only this little Bunny needs a bit of a cheer up :)
So, my dear friends, I wish you all a happy easter and a wonderful celebration with your loved ones!
See you next Tuesday!
