Waiting for the Easter bunny.....


If you are ever in France around Easter time, you must come and visit Riquewihr in the Alsace region, where all the windows are decorated especially for Easter or as is is called here in France - les fêtes de Pâques.


Now that is what I call an Easter egg.......

I saw some fabulous Easter eggs in our local boulangerie yesterday morning but unfortunately did not have my camera with me but I am planning on popping back tomorrow (it is closed today) and taking some photos so that I can share them with you.

J'espère que vous avez une semaine très belle,

  1. You're right, I'm always amazed by the ornate chocolate decorations turned out by small village bakers in France.

  2. That is indeed an impressive egg, and that sweet window looks so cute. What a lovely tradition. Can't wait to see the special Easter Egg photos. My imagination has them something along the lines of those in the movie 'Chocolat' xx

  7. Å, så nydelig! Spennende å få høre hvordan Franskmenn dekorerer og feirer påske. Her i Norge er det skitur, appelsin og sjokoladen "kvikklunsj" Som er obligatorisk ... Og påskekrim da selfølgelig:) Klem Renate

  10. Can Easter really be this weekend?!? None of the craft projects I've been storing since last Easter have even been given a second look... hmm maybe I'll keep storing those and just look at these pictures instead :)
