i know this is a little cheeky, but i saw this fab house yesterday. one that has had many hours of blood sweat tears and a whole lot of love poured into it. i thought i would give you a sneak peak of just 2 of the fab rooms that i saw. take this as a big shout out to the amazing and very talented interior designers, tilers, painters, cementers and all. you made the house go from hohum to homey and fun and beautiful.

I know, I know...this post is kind of like seeing Easter eggs in the store right after Christmas, but I just got a little bit excited this morning while planning for kids church and thought I would share some of the things that clever people do on their Easter mornings. We will be doing some of these things here.
I always find it a struggle to get the right balance at Easter. I want the Cross to be the centre...but egg hunts are so much fun!
We are doing this one. Clues may be changed a bit, but how cool is the end clue with the focus on Jesus. Love it. (see photo at top)
These are just way too cute.
So much fun!
