Joyeuses Pâques

A few years ago, I made a wreath from vine clippings (see here for a how-to) and it comes out every Easter to be suspended from the kitchen ceiling, and decorated with easter eggs, and a few extra twigs and ornaments.

Each egg comes with a memory or story, many were purchased when abroad,

while others were given to me by dear friends

All of them are made by hand, which is why they are so precious to me.

Wishing everyone a very happy Easter!

    The weather here in Geneva has not improved since we left! so depressing really.
