Scribble Picnic - Egg Hunt. . . . . . .



. . . . . . and a hunt it was, in the attic!

Returning from Patagonia - literally "the end of the world" - with the remains of the 
head/chest bug from hell, the last thing I on my mind had to be Easter eggs!
However, yesterday, stashing away our duffels and backpacks, I spied the two
 boxes marked EASTER and pulled them out. 
Paper-wrapped white china rabbits were tucked in with faux eggs awaiting their time 
in the sun yet again, so hacking and blowing took a back seat as I 'decorated' a wee
bit around the cottage. I took this photo, added a few watercolor smudges to 
make it legal, and here it is, my entry for today's SCRIBBLE PICNIC.


I missed you guys whilst journeying south, all the way south to within
 just 621 miles of Antarctica!  Circumventing Cape Horn, the spot where the
 Atlantic and Pacific oceans meetoften in a confrontation, there is no land
 to the east, none to the west—so winds sweep all the way around the world
 from the west.
I've just started posting my stories and photos from the expedition trip (take
 a look if interested) as there was only sporadic/costly Internet on the ship so
any and all blogging was put on hold.

More later. . . . . . . . .good to be back, and I am feeling much better at last.

  6. Ah, Mary, so wonderful to have you back on the picnics. I do hope that nasty bug/headache is all gone by the time you read this. I will definitely go and read all your blog post on your recent adventures but will need to dedicate some time to sit down and do that properly. Not now as I am way too tired. :-)

    I always love your little knickknacks and the things you show is from your beautiful little cottage. These eggs being no different. Thank you so much Mary. So happy having you here again.

    I hope you have a wonderful Easter with your family.
