Happy Easter !

Happy Easter Everyone, I thought I would share a few pictures of my Eastery bits and bobs in my kitchen.

There seems to be a bit of a duck and chicken theme going on !

For the first time in ages I did some baking a couple of days ago and made some scrummy cup cakes. The carrot cupcakes with orange were delicious and very easy to make. My friend at work had brought some in for us to try and copied me the recipe from her magazine.

Now, these little lavender chicks arrived in the post yesterday in their own little basket sitting on their nest on top of a pile of pastel coloured mini eggs. Carol is a lovely lady who had a stall at our Easter Vintage And Home Made Fair a few weeks ago. She makes these cute chickens filled with lavender from cheerful Cath Kidston fabrics. These were a lovely Easter surprise present that cheered me up at the end of a difficult day.

Recently I bought a 1930s scrapbook full of wonderful scraps. These are just a few of the Spring/Easter themed ones but I will show you some more in future posts. I haven't decided what to do with it yet because the actual album is falling apart.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend.

The scrap book is very interesting, but my vote goes to the wonderful tin with the picture of the duck about to steal the little boy's biscuit. It made me smile.
Of course, the cakes look yummy, too! xx

Cakes! Yummy!
The '30's scrapbook is wonderful, I particularly like the pic of the little girl with the watering can, I'm sure my mum had one similar hanging in our hallway when I was growing up. She also had a Mabel Lucy Attwell print, I wish I knew what had happened to them!
Have a Happy Easter!
