Hello everyone!  I hope you haven't forgotten 40andbeyond!  It’s been 50 days since my last post.  Whoa!  I didn’t realize it was that long.  You might be wondering what happened…well…I don’t know for sure.  There’s a long list of things to share and blog, but one day, I just became catatonic in front of my computer.  I stopped blogging and reading blogs, altogether!  Well, I guess it doesn’t matter anymore because now I’m back!  I’m resurrected!  And for the coming back post..look what I Easter Tree!  I got this idea from one of my favorite bloggers, ocharm.  As always, her posts are very interesting and so real and heartwarming!  Go visit her blog and marvel at her  writing prowess. I am a fan!

I’ve kept these hand painted Easter eggs since our Singapore days  (Philippine made and they were pricey that’s why I only have 3!).  I would put them in baskets together with the eggs that my kids painted.   But after checking the attic, I found  some dried branches and a couple of faux pussy willow stems.  I placed the whole bunch in a tall clear vase, hang the eggs and there…my Easter tree sitting pretty in my living room! 

Holy Week is coming very soon.  So an Easter tree would be perfect for your home.  Go and gather the whole family, paint some eggs if you don’t have any yet and you can make your own tree just like mine, or simply throw them in a basket. Now that I'm back, I can't wait to share with you my next post!  Later! :-)

I would love to hear your thoughts!
