Tuesday Snippets ;-)


I'm very busy over the next fortnight...lots of extra GCSE English lessons, to keep me out of mischief.
However, next week, one of my pupils has had the misfortune (LOL) of obtaining tickets to see Man Utd play at Porto...so I'll get a break from Simon Armitage and Carol Ann Duffy, for a couple of days at least!!
***
Meanwhile ... here is Easter in our house...

Tablecloth from Fuerteventura....crackers from Sainsburys!! ;-)


Little Easter 'favour' boxes from our last craft morning....


(Note the tea bag folding on the top of one of them!! )



Easter basket 'effort'...from last year's Easter craft morning .


Gorgeous little Easter basket from my fave craft cabin at Fermoys Garden Centre...



Simple but effective...



Fab Easter biscuit tin, from my mum, last year.



I love this tin as it reminds me of the 'Bunnykins' china.



Tomorrow's vintage...maybe?


Lovely tree ...from me..




Gaudy coloured eggs from Sainsburys...complete the Easter scene...!



Almost...
That done, in between my lessons, yesterday, I made a few cards with a few left over pieces of 'SNIPPETS' fabric....


...and all those little fiddley bits and pieces that I don't have the patience to use very often...



Finally, I just have to mention this...well done to the best footy team in Devon, Torquay United, who last night ripped top of the table, Burton Albion, to shreds... and what a match it was !!
The best I've watched in ages!
I mean, who needs to go to Porto when you can see 'quality' footy like this at home!! ;-)
Go Gulls! You can still do it! Show 'em what South Devon is made of !! ;-)



Have a good Tuesday everyone! ;-)

Happy Tuesday to you, Sal! Lovely pictures - I have to get home from Edinburgh on Saturday morning and do all our Easter decorating in one day! I've planned what I want to do but I still think that flying overnight may leave me a bit woozy, so we'll see what happens...

Where do you find the time to do all that !!!!!!!! Looks scrumptious - well done to Torquay and a big up for our local team Luton who won the Johnson Paint Trophy at Wembley on Sunday. I am not a footie fan but watched the last part of the game and it was nail-biting stuff. Keep smiling Sal and sod the wrinkles :-)

Your Eastery displays are gorgeous! I love that tablecloth, and you've reminded me that I actually some bunnykins china (somewhere!). The cards look great.
