Here at Old Town Home, we'd like to take a moment to wish you all a very Happy Easter! We're having a bit of a low key day, enjoying some time together and even an Easter tradition or two.

Admittedly I'm a bit late to the party this year. Most of our annual decorations didn't make it out of the attic, including our egg wreath for the front door, blown glass eggs for the living room, and our green bunny plates. My only decorating effort was to set out my three new ceramic bunnies on a shelf in our kitchen. I picked these up last year in Sonoma on my birthday trip, and was happy to be able to finally display them.

In addition to the bunnies, I did try to get my act together at the last moment though with a little craft project, and tackled an egg coloring endeavor yesterday afternoon.

Using an eco-friendly kit that Alex's mom sent to us, I got to work with some trepidation. Having not planned for the event, I only had brown eggs on hand, and wasn't sure how they would turn out. 

Despite not following the directions, the final result was quite lovely in my opinion. My guess is the brown base gave a more muted, aged look to the eggs. And I'm okay with that, in fact, I actually like this tone better than their brighter and intended counterparts.

I even made a special egg for Alex.

What are you up to today? Participating in any Easter egg hunts or enjoying a nice family dinner? We don't know about you, but we're officially ready for spring!
