We are not at Cranberry Cottage this weekend. We decided to stay home and get some more of the painting done. Jos is now working on the trim around the French doors and windows in the living room. We want to have this room finished.
Jos took a break to have a cup of coffee after lunch and we had an Easter pastry we purchased at the bakery this morning. There is a bakery right beside the grocery store and we decided to treat ourselves something since it is a holiday weekend. Don't you just love the tiny bunny on top of the pink pastry?
I ordered a wonderful vintage book from Mad Hatter's Bookshop in New Zealand. It is called "Nests and Eggs ~ Shown to the Children". I carefully read all the descriptions of the available editions on Abebooks and Mad Hatter seemed to have a really good copy. I was not disappointed. It is a lovely book and in really great shape.
The illustration plates in this book are so wonderful. It is such a fun book to look through and has chapters on each bird species and their eggs.
Books like this are fun to use for decorating. This one really brings springtime home to us and is perfect sitting on my coffee table with my antique eyeglasses next to my tray of primroses.
How are you spending your Saturday before Easter?
