A short Intermezzo for an Easter Dress

I have a few thoughts about Easter, including one of the very best free things given us. And also a few thoughts about one usually very level-headed and easy-going nine-year-old boy, who threw an irrational tantrum at the disproportionate number of Easter eggs he was able to find. I'm still wrapping my head around that one.

But for now, a bit of an Easter dress and my little girl's backyard Easter adventures. Again, the kids neglected to put out carrots for Easter Bunny and, again, Easter Bunny took it upon to help himself to our refrigerator, leaving dirty paw prints everywhere. And--true story--as carrots and wilted mâche were not enough for this mythical creature, we suspect E.B. broke into the garage and tore open a bag of lawn seed, scattering seeds and E.B. droppings all over the shelves. "It's Easter Bunny poo! Mommy! Easter Bunny poo! The Easter Bunny really did come!" Easter. Bunny. Poo. I'm still laughing. 

Anna's sundress, well, the buttonholes on the straps were kind of, uh, misplaced at, um, 8:00 a.m. Easter morning, so--ta da!--tie the straps into a halter!

We'll forgive E.B. for the lawn seed mess, as he did bring us this old play stove. I'm happy to know that E.B. is not above a little thrift store shopping and even more happy, that my little girl is just as happy (or more?) with something a bit dented and rusty as with something shiny and new. And how 'bout those cuppy cakes? We had fun.

FYI: fabrics from Hilco, available from FabricBliss.

Did, by any chance, some of the E.B. poo land ON the cup cakes? (hahaaa). Love your girl's expression and I would actually, really like to try one of them.

Ohhh.... I just LOVE old play ovens! What a wonderful easteregg for the bunny to drop.. (must have caused him some effort though...>;->) Somehow I managed to get hold of real old play oven when I was pregnant. It always cooks up happy childhood memories (although I never used to have one myself back than) As you can see, I never lost faith in having one myself one day.....;)
Happy Easter
Eva (...longingly staring at your easter pictures. Not even a whiff of snow over there by any chance??????)

I told Chris that the Easter Bunny broke into your garage and ate seed and pooped because you didn't leave carrots out. Chris said he tought Anna would take care of that stuff, since she takes such good care of the tooth fairy.-- Thanks for the fun.
