Okay, all of my photos are relinked and my blog should be in working order. Meanwhile, I'm switching to Picasa for now. Not that you asked.
I have a friend who is particularly thoughtful and generous, and she often sends me packages in the mail with festive little presents inside, depending on the time of year. A couple of years ago she sent one for Easter/spring, and some of the contents had yet to be used. A Disney Princess egg dyeing kit, for instance.
So, last week I had the sudden inspiration to invite a few friends over to dye eggs and decorate cookies. My last-minuteness meant that only one friend could actually come, but I was fine with that and still tried to Easter up my place. Then a second friend ended up having a free block of time and she came over too! Here are a few photos...
Tulips were on sale, so I used having company as an excuse to get some. I love this vase, but it ended up leaking and I had to switch them to another.
I like this vase, too, so it's okay.
Tired of tulip photos yet?
All set up to dye!
This butterfly garland was another part of the aforementioned Easter package, so I was happy to have a good reason to use it. So cute!
Do you love my bowl? It was on Easter clearance at Target a few years ago. I use it year-round.
K is such a great photo subject for me--she's willing to let me take photos and post them!! And she's lovely. :)
K and I dyed these. We're pretty amazing.
I also made cookies for us to decorate and give away to some friends. They're delicious (and "tender," as my friend P said :D), but I think I'm going to be sick from eating too many. I might post the recipe sometime.
More of our mad decorating skillz.
Here they are all bagged up to hand out.
Happy Palm Sunday!
