Do you believe in the Easter Bunny?

This is my easter in photos. I am wearing a fisherman's smock that my mother had made for me from vintage fabric we found at an antique fair.  We always have an easter egg hunt in the garden - you are never to old to enjoy the hunt for chocolate -, and I won this year!  The dachshunds are ours, Cedric and Cinderella, the french bull dog is Sala and belongs to my faux god-parents.  I hope you all had a lovely easter too!

    just lovely peony! it’s odd seeing such a flowery, spring-time easter when ours are always rainy and wet and cold.. it was fun to rug up in front of a fire though and drink easter egg hot chocolate.

    @ModHello – What a wonderful tradition, you must have amazing grandparents. Thank you so much for the post, I just saw it. I am so flattered and touched. x

    @Hannah-Rose – Yours sounds yummy though! Glad you liked the pictures.

    @Natalie – I know, bright and warm is what spring is all about. The weather really did us a favour this year.

    @Jenny – Too many chocolate eggs means that my mother always makes us a yummy cake, tart or soufflé with the left over chocolate, so I think of them very kindly! Glad you liked the pictures.

    @Francesca C – The dogs are our lives, they are sooo cute. We totally spoil them!

    @Emmy – Thanks! Always a bit nervous about my camera skills.

    @Galatea – I know I couldn’t resist the photo, crossed like a person! hahahaa
