A fast (same or next day) post-Easter return to colleges and schools has been a part of the pattern of my life for well over two decades now, with my children spaced as they are.

This year the college kids have already been home for weeks, and will be staying home much longer. I initially delayed planning and decorating for Easter, distracted, but now I am determined to make this Easter special at home, partly because it won't be as rushed as in previous years - "come home late Friday, leave Sunday."
(One of my children always had college classes on Good Friday.)

The patterns of other's lives has changed as well, I'm sure. So many different lives, so many radically different changes.

About the Easter photos in this post:
I made the mosaic cross last year, using some chipped flow blue tea saucers and other blue china.
I got 6 vintage chick egg-cups recently for about $2 each. They are quirky and not "beautiful", but ownership has made them grow on me and I love using them for soft-boiled eggs from the insta-pot.
The two polymer clay eggs were estate sale finds. I marvel at the expertise of the artist who made, since I have tried some FIMO clay projects myself. The "canes" she created are inspiring. Though they are beginning to crack, I am happy to own them, I enjoy looking at them every Easter, and now this post documents them if they eventually fall apart. The artist, "ACH" signed the eggs in clay, so if anyone knows who "ACH" is, let me know... (unlikely, I know, but someone this skilled may have been a teacher...)
*** SURPRISE NOTE ***! I think I found out who ACH is - The creator of the Easter Eggs is possibly Angela Hickey of Polymer Clay Creations
who has this Etsy site.

Click on the images to see them enlarged. (Yes, you can see these images even larger!) The best way to see the images in their largest format is to (on a windows system) right click on the image and select "open in new tab" from the option box that opens. This bypasses software that limits the size of the image opened. On the newly opened image, click on the image again to see it zoomed maximum.
