eater branch and celebration ring

After all the fun of the snow, Easter feels perfect timing to finally rejoice in all the long-awaited wonders of spring this year!  We have lots of ideas for easter gifts, decorations and natural crafts as well as special offers to help celebrate (without a chocolate egg in sight)! Happy easter from all at myriad!

“The cock is crowing,
The stream is flowing,
The small birds twitter,
The lake doth glitter,
The green field sleeps in the sun;
The oldest and youngest
Are at work with the strongest;
The cattle are grazing,
Their heads never raising;
There are forty feeding like one!
Like an army defeated
The snow hath retreated,
And now doth fare ill
On the top of the bare hill;
The ploughboy is whooping – anon – anon:
There’s joy in the mountains;
There’s life in the fountains;
Small clouds are sailing,
Blue sky prevailing;
The snow is over and gone!”
easter branch decorations

easter branch bud babies

These super sweet little 100% wool felt spring bud babies are just perfect for decorating a budding easter branch for the easter table, also shown is the daffodil bud baby kit made up and the lovely and tactile wool felted egg decorations.  We’ve also hand painted blown eggs using natural watercolour egg paint and hung them up (using cotton tied to half a match then poked inside through the top hole of the blown egg).

easter celebration ring

easter celebration ring

An amazing table centre piece for easter!  The grimm’s garland celebration ring

has been decorated with the spring and easter wooden decorations, showing the running hare, rabbit, tulip flower, butterfly, henbird, and chick.  Also the holtztiger easter hare has brought a present over to share!  The ostheimer easter animal selection are all looking at what the hen is pecking, and in the centre is the warm glow from a pure beeswax egg candle, and in the background is sarah’s silk cotton rainbow play cloth.  This would also all look wonderful on an easter season table and you could even add spring fairies too! Happy easter to all!
