Paques Joyeuses!

Our Easter will be very simple this year... But even if I don't have a lavish table, pretty Easter favors or crafted decorations to show you, I couldn't pass this meaningful day by. Meaningful for our faith, if you believe, meaningful for our spirits, as connected to the idea of rebirth.

Naturally we'll have a bit of chocolate and eggs...



... flowers...
My Mom's clematis The President gifted us with many flowers this year, so I arranged a tiny posy with scented herbs for our simple table.





OOOOOPS! This always happens when I shoot something yummy ;)

... and traditional italian Easter bread. I use to make it each and every year for my dear ones to enjoy for breakfast. It is slightly sweet and soft... mmm... delicious!


Have a glorious Easter everyone!

  14. Hi Monica, I hope you and yours had a joyous celebration. The weather looks lovely in your corner of the world. Not so much here. :/ Sadly, no Easter chocolate was to be found this year. My favorites are the malted robin's eggs. That bread looks delish! Love homemade breads. Best wishes for the rest of the week. Tammy

  17. Dear Monica,
    Oh no, what happened to Mr. bunny's head! LOL.
    We had a quite Easter Sunday too. Just Gary and I. Sat. we had a family BQ at our daughters home (they live together). Its always a joy to see my two beautiful grandkids and all the nieces and nephews, they had over 40 family members over. We had a great time. I adore the babies and all the little ones. Even had three dogs visiting. Our family is very large but a lot of fun.
    Have a sweet day and big hugs my friend.
