This year we sprouted our wheat grass in some old loaf tins.  She has been tending to this grass since March 17th.

Our wheatgrass loaves made a fun photo prop for the vintage Easter giveaway I won over at Musings of Kim K, thank you Kim! There was so much excitement to open such a grand parcel full of goodies. {There was also something special and unexpected for our doll house, but I will share that in a later doll house update post}.

And speaking of special deliveries, my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew welcomed a new addition: baby girl named Elsa May.   She was discharged from hospital and we look forward to meeting our newborn niece this weekend. 

Inspired by this post, my sister wanted a felt bunting for the newborn bassinet.  I made the felt polka dot bunting (she did not know whether she was expecting a girl or a boy) using this tutorial over at the Purl Bee. The color scheme is loosely based on Dwell’s Dot Fun nursery bedding line.  It was very fortunate because the bunting arrived in the mail on her birth date.  The felt peeps bunting is one of my sister’s Easter decorations (tutorial over at Made).  I understand that the nurses got a kick out of the buntings and it was nice touch because Elsa had to stay a little longer in hospital than first expected.

It is so wonderful to have a new baby in the family again!

Wishing you a joyous Easter and Passover season,

  1. Beautiful, beautiful photos of your new niece!! The bunting is such a darling and effective touch!!

    Fun package - I see a darling hanky in there. The potholder dress is absolutely sweetness itself.

    Good for you - we are trying to grow grass in our baskets but I started too late...sigh. Love the gingham dress so perfect for these photos.

  3. Else looks lovely in her Auntie's bunting creation. The Easter post is, as always, done with style. Hope has really blossomed into a real lady, gone are the tights that she liked to wear, even if it's just for this Easter holiday!!

  5. So many things to say! First, the gingham dresses on your girls are darling. Great job on the grass...I have yet to succeed in growing my own wheat grass. Last time all I had was mold. Welcome to the world, Elsa. Your family is so blessed and lucky. ♥♥♥

  6. Oh my.. Kj..She is adorable. Look at those cheeks!! And the dots are just the perfect thing for a plain bassinet! I love it!
    So, Congrats on becoming a proud aunt of Elsa, I am sure the girls are overwhelmed with their little cousin!!

    The grass looks fantastic! I've tried two times to plant a pot for myself which turned unsuccessful (both times) I am not giving up :P

    Wishing you a fabulous Easter!!
