project 366: 088-094

I'm not promising these are the last Easter related photos on the blog (because I definitely still have all my Easter decorations up..) but I do promise that they will decrease. It was still Easter last week though, so obviously it shows in my Project 366 photos!

088: Painted eggs. I'm sure I talk about these every Easter, but the blue one's a Fazer's Mignon egg; a chocolate egg in real eggshell. They're not my favourites, but I do still love them. And I do love painting eggs. (These ones didn't even turn out as awful as other eggs in recent years, haha!)

089: Sewing projects starting to become a reality.


090: Still eating Easter eggs, and a portrait of a working Laura. Such an ugly photo, but at the same time I thought it was funny. Even though I share a photo from every day, it would be so easy to curate that to look like my life is something that it's not. I don't feel as if I do that anyway, but this one I feel is a very honest photo. Just me in my bathrobe making dinner at 10pm with Sudocrem on my face. A lot of Sudocrem since I ended up squeezing the tube too much and didn't want to let it go to waste. And making dinner at 10pm because, even though I only work three days a week at the moment and get home before five, somehow I end up just loitering around the house doing nothing for ages until it's almost time for bed and I've still not had anything to eat. So that's my life in a nutshell, I suppose!

091: The sunset was looking pretty but my laziness got the better of me and I didn't go and take proper pictures of it. In all fairness, I had had an exhausting day. I don't want to turn this into a rant, but I had a horrid morning of missing my bus, walking 5km to a busier bus stop in slight drizzle, still being an hour late for work (not great when it's your second week..), feeling (and possibly looking) like an absolute mess for the rest of the day and getting home with a migraine and wanting to stop existing for the moment. (That did turn into a small rant.)

092: There still isn't too many signs of life outside, but I've got wee branches in a vase that are looking pretty spring-like.

093: This was going to be my Easter dress, but I only started it on Saturday, so it's still in the making. Really excited to be using this vintage pattern I bought a few years back!

094: Baking day:-) Made a bacon tart and rocky road, and they're both so good.

How did your week go, or do you have any fun plans for this one?

Oh my gosh, your baking day looks amazing!
Also, the eggs you painted are just gorgeous, and the dress you’re making! I think you’re more talented than you let on.
Ahhh, I hate mornings like the one you had to suffer through, and the weather just amplifies bad days like that so much :/ But - hope work is going ok!


Indy said...

Chocolate in a real egg?! How interesting!

Also, that is an awesome pic of you.

Suzy said...

OMG this makes me so happy!
So many memories and nostalgic feelings... I used to paint on rocks when I was in elementary school... I love dit so much! I truly need to find time to get back to doing something so wonderful and creative. You truly are talented. Love all your photos!

Happy Wednesday!
xoxo Suzy ( ˘ ³˘)♥

So typical - the Easter sweets just last forever!


Jessica Acton said...

Your Easter photos are beautiful. I'm so excited to see the result of all your sewing activities! The fabric you've chosen for the dress is just so gorgeous. I like the little peeks of non-curated life. My evenings after work are like that too. I'm bad at doing things like making dinner and doing the dishes at a reasonable time, and then when it gets late I'm too tired to do them. I always wish I could be one of those people who is super energetic after work!

I think I have a Moomin magnet from the same collection Laura - mines black and white and rectangular and looks about the same size :) twins! xxx

Amy - thank you, hon! xx

Kati - i really don't mind it at all, hen, haha! xx

Jessica Acton - thank you, doll! i still haven't finished anything since i'm so lazy once i get home, haha! i wish i was energetic after work too, most days i just go straight to bed.. i'm glad to hear i'm not the only one, though:-) it's just too difficult to have such a regular, adult life, haha! xx
