I'm not one for overdoing it when it comes to decorating Darlington House for Easter. But I do like to observe the most important High Holy Day of the Christian church with at least a little bit of this and that about the house.
This year we've decorated a little vintage tree with Easter-themed wooden ornaments. Subtle, and discreet. We bought the tree ten or so years ago from an antiques dealer in a nearby town who has since closed his shop. The tree dates from the 1960s, and we had to pry it out of the dealer, who didn't want to sell it. We wore him down over several months until he —finally—let us buy it from him. I'm so happy that he did!
Happy Easter, Dear Reader.
