HAPPY EASTER ONE AND ALL

Happy Easter Everybody!


Did you know the Qld Art Gallery owns a huge Tintoretto?

Cristo Risorgenti [The Risen Christ] c. 1555




It is spectacularly displayed:
as you ascend the escalator, it appears right before you.
Today is its Day!





These Diablotins printaniers amusants (festive spring crackers)
arrived from Canada just in time for Easter, courtesy of our dear daughter who lives Over There!
They are so pretty and as one would expect, each cracker contains blagues amusantes, cadeaux et chapeaux ..







Princess Beatrice has begun royal duties, out with her granny The Queen
in York on Maundy Thursday.  Stylish and elegant, isn't she a pretty girl?




I hope you are having as much Easter fun as we are in the Cardinal Nest!

Bonsoir!

  1. Well Easter is almost over and hasn't the weather been spectacular. So much nicer than a rainy long weekend.
    The bon bons are sweet Patricia, there's so many unusual yet lovely items one can purchase overseas. May I ask where you bought the colourful breakfast plates?
    I hope you are feeling stronger every day.

    1. Beautiful weather - the crisp Autumn we love after a hot wet summer. The young ones declared the bon bons much better than the Christmas ones, given the superior quality of the gifts :) The breakfast plates were from Bed, Bath and Table, purveyor of lots of fun stuff..
      and Thank you, I am getting a little stronger, but would love to be rid of the drain .. soon, please Dr???
