A very Good Friday indeed. We arrived back home safely late Wednesday night. I will be sharing wonderful photos of our trip to Key West and Cozumel early next week.
After classes, I spent yesterday afternoon preparing for Good Friday dinner and Easter brunch. I love creating tablescapes and was so happy to see cheery daffodils at Trader Joe’s. They were less than $2.00 a bunch and have just the right amount of springtime color for a lovely table.
This morning we will be heading to see the “Bunny Man”, aka The Easter Bunny, for pictures. I normally do not leave this annual visit so late, but I think this early Easter has sprung up on everyone.
I love these felt eggs that I found on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/) by Pinksweetie.
Also on Etsy was this fun necklace by PreciousMeshes.
My favorite eggs by far though are the “Resurrection Eggs” we made several years ago. They are a perfect way to teach children the story of Easter. Much like an Advent calendar, you begin 12 days before Easter and open one egg each day. Each egg contains a bible verse and a small token that represents the verse. There are wonderful sites such as http://www.christian-homemaking.com/resurrectioneggs.htm and http://www.rainbowcastle.org/resurrectioneggs.html that provide instruction on how to make the eggs. You can also purchase the eggs pre–filled at most Christian bookstores or sites such as http://store.dayspring-store.com/reeg.html .
