Easter Prizes

I hope you all enjoyed your Easter break. This gorgeous chicken arrived on my doorstep yesterday. I was the very lucky winner of Country Style Living's Easter competition.
I am really pleased with it and can't believe I won. I never win anything!

I also recieved other goodies, mini eggs (my favourite), some sweet pea seeds and some Easter ribbon. Thank you Maria. You can check out her website here. There are some lovely vintagey bits and pieces on the site like these pretty cushions.

I spent Easter with my family and having those two extra days off work was heaven. We spent the weekend hunting for Easter eggs, making Easter decorations, catching up on gardening, planting sweet peas and antirrinums, shopping in the spring sales and of course eating too much chocolate!

My nephew had a lot of fun on the Easter egg hunt.

We spent all day on Sunday at my mother's and had a very nice lunch, complete with chocolate Easter cake.
The sun is shining today and it looks like we are set for a nice weekend so enjoy everyone.
