Is it as sunny where you are as it is over here? I’m not complaining though. Only couple of more extra degrees and I can finally switch to using spring jacket. And how about your Easter plans? I have nothing, NOTHING to do. That’s what you get for being single and live hundreds of kilometres awat from your nearest and dearest. Well, my sister lives here and she said she will be dropping by on Sunday but it probably means she just wants something computer related from me.
To make matters worse, I had a fit or seizure or something few weeks ago and decided to do Herkuton Huhtikuu, which means Treatless April and back then I didn’t realize Easter would be in April. So I can’t even get Kinder-eggs to cheer me up. Why? Why don’t I ever think these things through? Anyhoo, here are some of my latest pins…
Illustration by Margaret Berg
Isn’t this wonderful? I don’t usually go for this type of floral illustrations, I’m all about granny florals but there’s something very charming in this. The illustrator Margaret Berg is originally from South Africa and lives now in the US. Her style is very commercial and by the looks of her portfolio, she has done some TV and movie work ie. retouching images, poster work too.

My treatless April hasn’t been easy. Even with 17 days of no candy, cookies, ice cream, chips or anything like that, my cravings haven’t lessened. Just the other day I tweeted that as soon as May 1st is here, I’ll be stuffing my face with chocolate and any other sweet thing I can get my hands on. Basically, not a day goes by when I don’t pin yet another pie or cake recipe. And someday, I will make them ALL! Oh, and the delicious thing in this picture is Strawberry Mascarpone Yogurt Pie. I’m weeping as I’m typing it.
Quilt by Carrie Strine
Originally I pinned another picture of this quilt but as I went to get the original from the site, I spotted this horizontal one over there. If you remember, I have a quilt in progress too. It just that I haven’t gotten any further than cutting the pieces. Well, not even that, since I moved to a new apartment and got a new, bigger bed, I have to cut more pieces to get a big enough quilt to work as bedcover. At this rate I’ll be done 2020 and probably not even then. Anyhoo, this quilt is called ‘Latice‘ and it has the sunny, retro vibe I’m looking for. I may have to add some pink to my quilt too.

Didn’t I post drinks last week too? I just realized that not being able to eat chocolate is not as bad as not being able to get some wine. You see, in my eternal wisdom, I decided that alcohol is also banned this month. How stupid am I? The. Worst. Easter. Ever. This delicious recipe is called Pineapple Crush and I think it’s going to be my ‘go to’ drink this summer.
Now, you may understand that I might be little bit on the edge with no sweets and alcohol to keep my mood on a pleasurable level. The following T-shirt captures this situation, oh heck, my entire personality quite beautifully:

Edited to add…My sister just called me and told that she will be bringing her computer because some mumblemumblemumble. I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT!
