One of you out there needs to buy this painting quickly before I do. In my mind this furry guy is singing Code Monkey — one of my very favoritest most awesomist songs — but I’d imagine that for you he could sing something else. By susarto.

Commercially speaking, Easter doesn’t really get the attention Christmas does. No matter how hard the Bunny tries, he will always play second-fiddle to the Big Man. This is okay with me. I can only handle one big holiday a year, which is why Easter, the most low-key, is also perhaps my favorite. (Daisy photo from Country Dreaming.)
Growing up, I looked forward to getting the Easter basket. What kid doesn’t love a basket full of chocolate eggs, marshmallow candies, and a over-sized chocolate bunny? I couldn’t tell you what the basket looked like, but it had that green plastic grass in it that hid lots of chocolate treats. The Easter egg hunt was also a lot of fun. My brother and I would run around the house finding plastic eggs filled with jellybeans. My brother, four years younger, needed help from my parents

The second part of Easter after the egg hunt and basket unveiling, was less exciting at least for a kid. It involved getting dressed in a new dress, going to church, and then having a big family dinner. Frilly white dresses with lace and Easter bonnets were popular among me and my fellow 10-year-olds.

25 years later, Easter is a bit different. There are no baskets or Easter egg hunts. However, we still go to church in the morning, I still manage to eat chocolate, and we do have a big family dinner. Also, I always find an excuse to buy myself something new—not necessarily white and frilly, but something for Spring.

Last week we talked about back to school which must mean that we’re edging toward fall. I like to buy as many multi-purpose and multi-season items as I can, so I have spent this week thinking about how to extend our summer purchases into the autumn days ahead. This week I focused on a particular color scheme – orange, rust, amber and red – that will still look fresh in the coming months when the leaves start to change.
My first find this week is a gorgeous photo from The Garden Shed. Gerbera Daisies always lend a cheerful touch to your wall and the vibrant color will help perk up any dark corner.
