Chicks, Eggs and Easter Bunnies

27 Mar

It quite surprised me to see all the Easter decorations in the shops. Isn’t Easter a month away? 


Yet when I perused the accessories section at Awear, pinks and yellows hit me over the head. Now, I love them little chicks as much as the next farmer but aren’t they a bit presumptuous? 


Anyway, without any further ado, here they are.



I always love these tiny decorative items you can just drop anywhere for a splash of colour. Those chicks especially can just about cling to anything with their strong, little bendable legs.


Fluffy Easter bags for kiddie paradise. I think they’re adorable but what would you use them for?

Because you need to have pictures and posters with chicks all over your house. Evidently.

Chocolate Easter eggs at Thornton’s. Yummy. And available in all sizes.

And available in different colours too. 

Yes. We got the message! 

>Vintage Housewife Notebooks

13 Mar

>I went to the shopping center today to capture all the Easter merchandise on display. Instead, I decided (since the holiday is over a month away) to photograph the quirky housewife notebooks I encountered at Awear.

The shop is famous for its lovely collection of bits and bobs. Not only do they have an impressive amount of school supplies, they are also original and fun. Makes me want to be a schoolgirl again. I always loved that part of the school year (actually, that’s all I really liked about school).

Anyway, women are notoriously bad at resisting pretty things.

I’ll show you what I mean. Doesn’t it spontaneously turn you into a Stepford Wife? It makes me want to bake cookies and lots of them.
