Happy easter 2014!

Happy easter everyone! :D Are you doing anything fun this weekend?

This is one of the busiest weekends of the year here, not because people care much about celebrating easter, but since you get a few days off work and school EVERYONE goes on holiday. The stores are packed with shoppers, the mountain resorts are packed with vacationers, and the roads are packed with traffic.

Normally we’d go somewhere too, but I have a cold and don’t feel well, so we’re just staying home. Which feels really good actually. 4 days of just relaxing and sleeping in, how lovely doesn’t that sound?!

Easter 2014 - decoration

As is tradition, I’ve put up some decorated branches outside the front door. This year I got not only birch, but also some willow branches with catkins on them. I love catkins, they’re so cute and fluffy, like little botanic kittens. :heart:

In addition to the coloured feathers and wooden eggs, I also got a bunch of little witches to decorate with. Gotta love how easter gives me an excuse to go crazy with colours and cute decorations! Less is not more if you ask me – more is more and less is a bore. ;)

Stay safe and don’t overdose on chocolate!

    God påske! :D I’m moving out into my own apartment this weekend, so all I’m doing is assembling IKEA furniture, moving stuff, assembling more IKEA furniture, moving more stuff, writing down things I still need from IKEA, repeat ;) It’s good timing to move when I have some days off, but I’m pretty sure I’ll go back to work even more exhausted than when I left, haha!

    I love your branches, the witches are so cute! And the tiny eggses! More cute! :D

      Glad påsk! :D I hope IKEA has treated you nicely! I know from experience that their furniture can sometimes come with a bit of an attitude and unwillingness to cooperate.. ;)

    I’m staying home as well, relaxing the four days off work.

    Happy Easter :)

    Your Easter tree is one of the happiest things I’ve ever seen. ♥

    I was actually afraid everything would be closed here for Easter, so we got food to stay in the whole time, haha. I barely left the house! Relaxing for a few days sounds great though :)

    I love how you decorated the branches! The eggs and little witches are so cute!

    Oh, your Easter decorations are very cute! :) One of the wonderful thing about witches and branches is that they go with every holiday – depending on how they’re accessorized. I’m glad to hear that you had a good Easter, and I’m feeling kind of guilty for not posting about my own Easter – despite the fact it was uneventful, boring, and utterly dull…basically, a typical Sunday. :P As for overdosing on chocolate…lately, it seems impossible. :(

    I hope that you are feeling better soon! The decorations look so lovely! :love:

    Happy Belated Easter (and Belated Birthday too!).

    I hope you feel better soon :( I’ve also been ill over Easter and just recovering now – throat infection – I really love your decorations! We don’t decorate much outside of Christmas and Halloween, but I did persuade the other half to dot little chicks over the house this year.
