I've changed my blog banner in line with the season to show my pysansky eggs, I bought them new from Poland on e-bay, they are wooden and handpainted. I don't know if I'll be able to bring myself to put them away after Easter though. On trips to Austria and the Czech Republic I've seen shops that sell nothing but painted eggs, mainly real eggs where the white and the yolk have been blown out. They look fantastic in the shops but there is so much choice that I've always gone out without buying any because I just couldn't decide which ones to buy.
Another new purchase which I've ummed and aahed about for a while before buying is this doll's bed from IKEA. I'm feeling quite attracted to the idea of doll quilts like Finn has been showing on her blog lately but I wanted somewhere to display them. Hence the bed, which DS put together for me last weekend. My husband's only comment, predictably, was 'Yes, but where will you put it?' I have to grudgingly admit that it is quite big for a doll's bed so I'm not entirely sure where I will put it. At the moment it's on top of the freezer - such a classy place to display doll quilts! I sewed up a few plaid squares just to get started which has spurred me on to finish cutting the fabrics for my plaid YBR from shirting.
