Happy Easter!

This year, we celebrated Easter with friends, and started the day with a colourful Easter brunch. The weather was lovely, so we finished our champagne outside, watching DS and his friend having fun on the egg hunt

A few days ago, I was greeted by a wonderful surprise... an Easter bunny must have hopped by and deposited it in my mailbox..

as it was decorated with happy Easter images

Inside was a lovely greeting by a most generous and sweet scarf fairy, and this beautiful italian silk scarf. The combination of it's soft blues and light neutrals feels so fresh and spring like, and it is just perfect for so many pieces of the capsule wardrobe. Mille merci, my dear scarf fairy, I will cherish this treasure for always.

Wishing everyone a most wonderful remaining Easter holiday!

  15. My dearest MaiTai,
    A very Happy Easter to you and your loved ones! Your Easter table is one of the sweetest and the most beautiful I have seen - so many happy and colorful details just fill the heart with so much joy. Your treasured gift from your dear scarf fairy is so lovely - the colors and the design are gorgeous on you, and perfect with the bone ring <3 Sending you a million happy hugs with all my love xx

  16. The table is simply stunning and your scarf fairy has surely attended all your scarfie lessons and has been a veeery dedicated and attentive pupil, therefore she has chosen the scarf which suits you perfectly. I feel your scarf fairy lives in Germany and I hope to meet her travelling to Germany on monthly basis, lol (hoping she is a really generous fairy).

  17. Your easter feast looks so pretty and colourful and laden with chocolate and sweet things, as it should be!

  18. Many thanks for the lovely comments my dear ladies, hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter. I have had a busy time with the holiday and house guests, and have fallen badly behind with catching up..will come in back in more detail in a couple of days xx

    Dear Jana, we don’t have brunch very often, but I just love Easter breakfast with eggs, brioches, smoked salmon and champagne!

    Dmiko, you are so right, I could not have chosen the scarf better for myself :)

    Merci, dear ritournelleblog, so nice to hear you like the table. Hope you had a wonderful Easter too.

    Greetings from the South of France to beautiful Crete, dear marinaki, and please say hello to your mother from me too :)

    Hope you had a most happy and wonderful Easter, my dear Scarf Enthusiast, and thank you for your sweet good wishes. A pink fairytale cake would have been the colourful icing on our easter table, but I am saving it for when we are having coffee chez D! <3

    Dear Lilian, the scarf fairy has certainly great intuition! And so have you, my dear, guessing where the scarf has come from ;-) Wishing you much fun on your monthly travels, blowing some fairy dust your way..

    Glad you like it, dear ms T! Belated sweet and colourful greetings to you x
