Easter Tree and Excitement!

Well, yesterday was a WONDERFUL day (some crafty excitement happened!).  Of course the weather was amazing - we pottered about a bit getting some things sorted at home, popped into town for some bits and bobs, and then spent the afternoon in the park in the sunshine.  I cannot get over how hot it is for April - it felt like we were in Spain or something!

I also spent time admiring my Easter tree whenever I was in the flat!  It is a happy little tree!

I just love that pink polka dot jug vase too - I managed to get the last one in Sainsburys on Thursday evening.  I had to have it - it's so pretty!

I seemed to be rather useless at arranging the branches, and after trying various options I bought some artificial blossom sprays from Wilkinsons, after seeing cupcakejojo's Easter Tree using them.  I think they work really well!

My tree is decorated with eight handmade felt eggs, which I have been making over the last month or two.  I also added pretty bright feathers to it.  These feathers were given to me by my lovely Swedish friend (hi!) as it is a Swedish tradition to have Easter trees with feathers on - I think it's a great tradition!  I love the bright colours!

Well... now on to the 'Excitement' part of my post title... I have won a giveaway!!!!!  I entered a giveaway at Sew Special Bears and I have won the 'crafty stuff' prize!!!  I should receive a selection of crafty bits and pieces!  This is the first giveaway I have won, and I am so excited!!  When I read her post showing 'Dinki Dots' as a winner I couldn't believe my eyes!  I started leaping and dancing around the living room like a demented baboon, making crazy happy noises!!  My boyfriend watched with great amusement!

I will be sure to show you what I get when I receive it!  Aaaahhh, I'm so excited!!
