Easter is coming

Easter is fastly approaching and of course i've already started to put up some new decoration fitting the moment.
On the door i put a nice coloured garlad made with coloured egg shells i did last Easter - actually soon after Easter last year - and stored until now and added some coloured feather.
The my dear sister in law M gave me two polystyrene bells for some patchwork and showed me how to do it and now they're patiently waiting in a wicker basket for some more decorations to join them.
How much i love to take care of our house, of my family. I'm so lucky i can show my love for my family simply fullfilling my call for beautiful things, handworks and womahood ...

Patchworked bells

A simple purple ribbon to hang the garland to the door

The Little Home
Edgar A. Guest

The little house is not too small
To shelter friends who come to call.
Though low the roof and small its space
It holds the Lord's abounding grace,
And every simple room may be
Endowed with happy memory.

The little house, severly plain,
A wealth of beauty may contain.
Within it those who dwell may find
High faith which makes for peace of mind,
And that sweet understanding which
Can make the poorest cottage rich.

The little house can hold all things
From which the soul's contentment springs.
'Tis not too small for love to grow,
For all the joys that mortals know,
For mirth and song and that delight
Which make the humblest dwelling bright.

Have a lovely rest of the week !
