A perfect mix for a perfect weekend.
In our family we celebrate with the seasons. Our spring celebration is the Equinox (Eostar). For several years now we've chosen to celebrate Spring Equinox on Easter weekend. We were snowed out a few too many times, and an egg hunt in the grass is much nicer than an egg hunt in the snow. Knee-deep snow.
This year we crept away to the Cabin and shared the holiday with my sister.
It was wild scene weather wise. (Pete referred to it as "manic-depressive" which was spot on).
The kids enjoyed some summer-style dips in the river, and a day later we'd find ourselves shivering out on a hike in down vests, fleece jackets, and long johns.
Fickle (freaky) spring.
But between relaxing in the sun on the deck or cuddling by the fire to keep warm we created some lovely new Spring Celebration traditions, including these wool felt treat pouches and paper maché eggs, above (to replace plastic Easter eggs).
I love the idea of losing something biodegradable in the yard rather than a plastic made-in-China egg. I'll share a tutorial for each next year! So quick and easy.
Happy spring to one and all!
