This Easter feels a bit like that moment in “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” where they all wake up and realize the holiday isn’t going to celebrated quite like it usually is. But they celebrate all the same. And so we will get dressed in our Sunday best, livestream our church service, celebrate the joyous day and enjoy a little Easter brunch spread after we’ve hunted Easter eggs in the front yard, just like we did when we were kids and I can’t wait.
I’d be remiss on Good Friday not to have our Food roundup be focused on all things Easter now wouldn’t I? If you’re on our email list then you got a little round up earlier this week – like my Tips for setting a beautiful Easter Table. I came to realize that over the years we’ve really put together a lot of yummy and traditional Easter recipes, like Deviled Eggs, Carrot Cake, Coconut Cake and (just added) a recipe for Parker House Rolls that I did in conjunction with our friends at Dixie Crystals.
Did you catch our partnership with Dixie Crystals? I’m sharing recipes over on their site all year long and you can take a peek here to see some of my favorites so far along with a roundup on their site.
There are SO many folks online that I love following and one as of late has been the husband + wife duo at Studio McGee. I love their simple aesthetic that is rich with neutral tones + textures and the fact that they love to mix in a little vintage on every project too. Have you heard of them?
Since none of us are wandering the aisle of Target these days, you may have missed the launch of the brand new Studio McGee line. I just loved some of the pieces so I thought I would share a few of my favorites with you.
Today we are taking some time together to dye some Easter eggs. I know there are lots of fun new ways to dye eggs, like those cool tie dye ones, shaving cream ones or natural dyed eggs. I pinned a few Easter craft ideas, like salt dough eggs and decoupaged eggs (my Grandma loved making these for her Easter tree).
But alas, we are going old school (of course) and just doing things the simple way we always have. Love to see how your eggs turn out and some of your favorite Easter traditions so give us a tag on Instagram #HEIRLOOMED
Now here’s a little story behind a vintage treasure from my own collection, an old Egg Mold Baking Pan that I found at my favorite antique shop in Thomasville, GA (which is currently going out of business due to the owner retiring – all the tears). You can read the full story and even get a copy of our Easter Issue of HEIRLOOMED Magazine where I originally featured the story of this piece. Such a treasure to me!
And in honor of Easter baskets everywhere, thought I’d share a few of our vintage baskets that are over on the site right now. Beyond stashing eggs, they’re cute for storing rolled towels in a bathroom or as pantry storage too.
Since this week was technically Spring Break for us, we had a great break from homeschooling and though we didn’t make it anywhere tropical, we had great time together outside nonetheless.
In honor of Spring Breaks everywhere, thought I’d share a roundup of some of my favorite bathing suits + coverups of the season that are timeless enough in shape + silhouette that they’ll never go out of style (added to my roundup of Capsule Wardrobe Staples. Lots of sales, too.
We’ve been blown away by the response to our Weekly Giveaways (thank you, thank you!) and excited to share this week’s giveaway is a matching adult + child set of our Simple Blessings Aprons. The adult apron says “Amen” as a nice compliment to the child apron which has the “God is great” prayer on it. Love this combo for sweet baking memories in the kitchen and both are sale this week only at 50% off.
Congrats to last week’s winner, Jan B. !
