Happy Easter everyone!
Anyway I hope these have made you smile and that your day has been and is full of Easter blessings .... as well as the odd chocolate egg or two!
|This is my Easter tree made out of a candlestick (with the candle spikes sawn off because they invited the mother of all wax spillages every time candles were perched on them and lit), Humpty Dumpty eggs (painstakingly reassembled last year out of broken bantam egg-shells with glue and tissue paper shell-grafts and painted in thick acrylic paint to hide the joins), flowery fairy lights (that I've had for ages and never found a use for) and some pom-pom chicks in ridiculous colours to sit on the places where the candles are designed to go. Why the crazy colours, I hear you ask? I'm asking myself that today too! Well, I was running short of yellow yarn and it seemed a good idea at the time late yesterday when I was putting it together and the candle saucers were empty and needed peopling. Not so sure with hindsight that the multi-colour flock was one of my better ideas but they have a certain pastel appeal that is enhanced somewhat through the perspective of a glass of wine! There is a psychedelic pale purple one at the back that fortunately is out of sight. He looks as though he has been seriously overindulging in something or other and is in need of a restorative as well as a drastic haircut! Fortunately though, as I say, he is out of sight behind a strategic flowery fairy light!|
Well, I thought he was! But clearly his friend has other ideas!
