monday....
i do hope you all had a lovely weekend!

we had a busy one catching up with friends, exchanging Easter cookies, chocolates and gifts for the little ones -i do love Easter, its one of my favourite celebrations.

Thursday will be spent baking Easter treats ...we always make traditional Greek Cheese pies, plaited breads and baked Easter baskets - my mum is always so organised buying her ingrediants way in advance so my sister and I are happy to help out.

Its always an early start and my dad has freshly made coffee ready to go ...by mid morning the house is warm and smelling amazing!

we always cut up a warm pie from the first batch and share it ...someone has to taste test right?

hot cheesy pie straight out of the oven, - delicious!

i found these images on pinterest - Im loving pale powedery tones in these home - elegant, beautiful and very calm...

  3. Lovely colours in this post. Easter for us tends to be family together and Easter egg hunts for the children. I love your cooking traditions though.

  4. Aw - India! When I first saw her home years ago in a magazine I wanted to move in and look like her. She also had a wonderful and huuuuge craftroom for the kids in pale Green I think and everything in it in child size. She is such an icon!
