Easter – The Secret Easter Bunny Brought Me Gifts

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a great Easter Sunday and are enjoying Easter Monday so far. This Easter I participated in a gift exchange that follows the same rules as Secret Santa except that it’s the Secret Easter Bunny who is trying to put a smile on your face. The gift exchange was organized by fellow blogger Sarah from Büchermops and was open to Austrian book bloggers.

Secret Easter Bunny Package

A few weeks ago I received a beautiful and big package, wrapped in mint-colored wrapping paper. This is when the long wait until Easter Sunday began. Fortunately, I am very disciplined when it comes to not touching stuff I’m meant to leave alone. Last night, I finally opened my package and here is what I found inside:

Secret Easter Bunny

The Secret Easter Bunny obviously wants me to spend more time at my sewing machine, because they gave me lots of fabric. There is red fleece, which I can never have enough of, as it is perfect for all sorts of small projects, very cute white cotton with animals on it (my boyfriend loves all the cats on it 😀 ), salmon-colored stretchy knit fabric with glitter, and white jersey with fairies (or princesses?). The last two fabrics are perfect, as I can finally try my hand at stretch fabric. We’ll see how that goes. 😉 I also got two kinds of grosgrain ribbon. One is pink with daisies and the other one, my absolute favorite, is blue with a space theme.

Secret Easter BunnyOf course Easter would be boring without some calories, right? So I got fruit confections and the Easter Bunny tells me that these are made by a local manufacturer – so cool! Some of you might have noticed the small green bag. It has tea flowers in it that bloom when you put them in hot water. I’ve always wanted a tea flower and the Easter Bunny didn’t even know that. Now that is a surprise! I’m looking forward to a special moment to make some blooming tea and I can’t wait to see what the flowers look like.

As this was a book blogger Secret Easter Bunny, I also got a book that has been on my wish list for a while now. It’s Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler. I’m really looking forward to diving into it and I think I might do so tonight.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Thank you so much Secret Easter Bunny! You did great selecting everything and I’m very happy about this wonderful package. I’m still not sure who you are, because you didn’t leave me any clues, or at least I didn’t see any, but I’ll take a lucky guess: Is it you msmedlock?

Summer Book Exchange

I just found this over at Jessie’s Book Place and I think it’s great, so I joined in and thought I’d let you know about it too.

There’s this Summer Book Exchange going on and it’s hosted by Ruby’s Reads. (It’s something for people who love gifting and getting gifts. And those who miss Christmas, haha)
