I could hardly wait to keep our date...

...This lovely Easter morning!
 (haha, I don't think this picture would keep any date!)
"In your easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it,
You'll be the grandest lady in the easter parade.
I'll be all in clover and when they look you over,
I'll be the proudest fellow in the easter parade.
On the avenue, fifth avenue, the photographers will snap us,
And you'll find that you're in the rotogravure.
Oh, I could write a sonnet about your easter bonnet,
And of the girl I'm taking to the easter parade."
Easter Greetings all! Eaten all your eggs yet?
Just a little silliness to mark the springtime festivities- all done in-between eating chocolate, of course!
In the first snap I’m trying to channel ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘The Muppets Christmas Carol’ (think Belle!). Both gave me great bonnet envy as a nipper, actually, they still do! Well, who doesn’t want to be just like Jennifer Ehle in P&P, eh! One day I WILL have a proper bonnet and when I do (???),I'll prance around the house and garden whilst humming along to the pianoforte in my head. Once I have hummed the entire score from the 1995, BBC series (which I adore!) I will then skip in to town to buy ribbons and meet the officers of the militia! Sounds peachy, yes!
Anyroads, here's more silly photo's of me and my 'make do' Easter bonnet!

Easter Bonnet and Evil Bunny!
Easter Bunny and Evil Tupney....?

 Don't think these two look like me at all- s'pose it's because I've got me trap shut!
Tupney always enjoyed the chocolate bunny she received at Easter and therefore thought very little of the new wartime 'just for show' bunnies….
(so attractive!!!)

I shall leave you with this lovely little ditty...
Happy Easter All!

  1. Well I think the bonnet looks lovely. But I am, perhaps, a bit (Pride &) Prejudiced, since who WOULDN'T want to star opposite Colin Firth in P&P? ;) Plus... I live WAY too close to Colonial Williamsburg to NOT like bonnets ;)
    Happy Easter Tupney!

  6. Happy Easter, Tups! You look lovely in your bonnet.

    (Belle was an excellent character. Her song still makes me cry!)

  7. I think you look rather adorable, very Scarlett too! I have to say I've always had a bit of a thing for straw bonnets myself.
