Oh Osterbaum

In the great tradition of decorating festive trees to celebrate an occasion, we have dusted off the "painted tree" in readiness for the Easter weekend.

Most of the decorations were purchased last year and some of them were made many years ago at my weekly craft sessions.  Aahhhh, the decoupage eggs, dipped over 15 times in Estapol, giving a high-gloss resin finish.

Even though Sally and Tom Cakes are of an age where believing is seeing, the Egg Hunt on Sunday morning is still a must.  We then spend the remainder of the year, finding undiscovered eggs - skill does not necessarily come with age.

Before you leave, have a look at how the Germans decorate their Osterbaumen.  Complete with cut out chooks and rabbits.

Do you have any Easter traditions?
