Easter Feelings

Easter is early this year,
 but somehow delicately coordinates with the renewal of Nature,  
 with the changing light,
  the blooming joy of the white apples and pink cherries, 
 the heavenly smell of the Lilly of the Valley...
 The excitement fills the air...
While anticipating the arrival of Easter and preparing our hearts for it, we are trying to center on the story of the real meaning of the celebration.

" And this is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life."
John 2:25

With a few of my photos I would love to wish all of you a bright and peaceful Easter filled with love, laughter and goodness!


This is how my creative son decorated the Easter eggs this year :)
To see our naturally dyed eggs from last year Click on label " Easter" or here

 For first time in my life, 
I feel the sweet urge to make my own Easter bread.
I called my mom and granny for the recipe and I better hurry to prepare the dough since everybody warns me that the secret to a really good Easter bread is to allow the dough to rise properly.
I know, I know, kneading this dough is quite tricky..
Wish me luck.

Dear Friends,
Thank you for the lovely response to my Spring Afternoon Tea
I appreciate your kindness!

I am joining Seasonal Sundays


  1. Your pictures are absolutely marvelous.

    Your sentiments, even better.

    Happy Easter to you and your family.

  3. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter. Good luck with the Easter bread. I think you should do a post on that alone, including recipe! Your son obviously has your creative genes - I love the decorated eggs.xx

  4. Good morning sweet Sylvia!!!!

    Those beautifully dyed eggs remind me of some of the kind that CHICKENS REALLY DO LAY, with the pretty pastel colors and speckles...this is what I love....the SIMPLICITY of nature's art, the ORGANIC feel to your photography and the natural SUNLIGHT that embraces your subject. This is what I love. I am also learning about how to feature an art piece in a way very similar to what you do here: YOU HIGHLIGHT JUST the subject of interest with very little to no excess. THAT IS WHAT MAKES YOUR WORK SO SPLENDID.

    ENJOY this glorious weather, this reflective celebration of LIFE and LOVE ETERNAL, and your quote that you left me IS OUTSTANDING and parallels a thought I had this week, about how BLESSED WE ARE TO HAVE BEEN BREATHED INTO EXISTENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HAPPY LIFE!!!!!!!! Anita

  5. What a lovely post, Sylvia! All your images are so delightful and the sentiments as well. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Easter.

  7. Your photos look beautiful, Sylvia. Happy Easter to you :)

  8. Sylvia, your photos are amazing, took my breath away! Good luck with your bread, don't over knead and let it rise, go for walk or pedicure and come back to it, it will be ready. Happy Easter xo

  11. Your photographs are so beautiful...magazine quality! If you don't mind my askiung, how do you make these large photo collages? I need to break free from Picasa as that is the only editing program I use.

    Have a very Happy and Blessed Easter!

  12. Beautiful Blessings for a Joyous Easter to you, dear friend and sister!
    Your son's creativity is fantastic...gorgeous eggs. I really love the photo where he holds the flowers...his hands showing that artistic work that has been done.

    Sending you much love,
    - Irina
