Glimpses of Easter at our house

I know I'm very late posting
but here are a few images from Easter
at our home this year!

I always invite friends to share
our Easter celebration dinner with us.
I wish our family could be here too
hopefully one day in the future
we can enjoy Easter Sunday again as a family.

I used my vintage linen tablecloth I bought in Chablis
on our visit to France in 2003
the year our first granddaughter
Zoé was born. 

The green plates are French but I bought them here.
The birdcage I bought in France last year
from a little shop in
Noyers sur Serein, the pretty village in the previous post!

I found these sweet little tins just before Easter last year,
at the time I had already posted my Easter parcel
to France so I put them aside for this year!

I filled them with a little straw in the base
and added chocolate rabbits and eggs to the brim!

We received a lovely parcel from France
with beautiful Easter cards made by the girls
and a bag of chocolate rabbits for Dada and I!

We are now enjoying beautiful
warm and mild Autumn days.
I've just had a lovely walk with my cousin
and her dog 'Bertie' in Cornwall Park.
The park was full of families and their dogs
enjoying a warm afternoon in the sunshine. 

I'm joining these parties

Diane for Beautiful Sunday
and Mary for Mosaic Monday
Mary for Masterpiece Monday 
and for the first time
Nita for Mod Mix Monday
Deborah for What we Accomplished Wednesday

My friend Kerrie of Sea Cottage
is having a Giveaway you won't want to miss!
It includes one of her beautiful rose paintings.
It' on my side bar here is the link.

Wishing you all a very happy week
and the last April days for 2014!

Take care and 
be kind to one another

  Merci à bientôt

    Ein ganz exquisites Essen :-)
    Es ist immer schön mit der Familie zusammen.

  20. Your home looked lovely for Easter and the egg containers you sent to your little ones in France are so pretty. I'm sure you treasure the cards that they sent. I've kept all of my children's and grandchildren's home made cards. They're very special. Enjoy your week and warm Autumn days. x

  21. Dearest Shane,
    What a lovely Easter setting and like the true meaning of the Easter spirit, you also did have ALL of your family present with such lovely little gifts...

  22. Everything looks lovely. So sweet of your family to send you treats all the way from France. Have a wonderful week. Tammy

  23. Your Easter packages, coming and going, brought such love and smiles, I'm sure. I enjoyed seeing your beautiful Easter table with all its decorations. Beautiful table cloth. My niece once spent some time in France with a host family and they told her that dragonflies represented France so she brought my sister a beautiful tablecloth adorned with dragonflies. It's perfect for a summer garden tea.

  24. Beautiful Easter items. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  41. Hi Shane! Thank you for linking up in my Beautiful Sunday series. I really appreciate it.

    Easter for us is rather a quiet event. We attend the Easter Sunday mass and spend the day with the entire family.

    I love all the photos I see. I love the floral and heart shaped wreath. It's a classic!

    Hope you are having a great week!
