Happy Easter

I thought I would share a few pictures of Easter themed bits and pieces on my kitchen dresser. This is before they are all taken down and packed away as hopefully we are going to tackle decorating the kitchen this Easter break.

I think we will probably end up painting the dresser shelves to freshen them up.

I love my old Rowntrees Easter egg box and have it on display all year round.

Last Sunday was the first Buckingham Vintage fair and it went really well. The venue was lovely and there was lots of positive feedback from customers and sellers alike.

I treated myself to these lovely yellow Jasmine ware milk jug and sugar bowl, perfect for Easter. They are a lovely bright yellow but the photo makes them look much paler. The yellow Jasmine ware is my favourite colour for utility ware closely followed by the pink. These were from Sprig and Cecil, Nic always have a really gorgeous stall.

Staying with the yellow theme I bought this lovely yellow meat safe also from Sprig and Cecil.

I spent a couple of hours eyeing it from across the room before finally cracking and making the purchase even though I wasn't sure where it would go. I have to say it's one of the things that has spurred me on in wanting to get the kitchen sorted out. I suspect Mr C may think the cupboard needs painting but I rather like it's cheerful yellow gloss paint.

I unearthed my old 1930s scrapbooks this morning and thought I would share a few snaps of some Easter themed vintage scraps.

I had forgotten how lovely these scrap books are , I have shared some of the images in the past but thought you might like to see some of them again.

Just thought a gratuitous chocolate image wouldn't hurt !

I hope you have a happy and peaceful Easter weekend.
