At the Easter Denmark Arts Markets 2014, Kylie Collyer from Nature’s Nest and P&F Chair Miranda Miller made a beautiful and inspirational display, bringing together elements of the Easter festivity and Autumn’s bounty.
Alongside felt and wood-made Autumn trees, leaves, toad stalls and pumpkins, little felt rabbits could be found about the display. Kylie made a host of beautiful toys and keepsakes for sale, especially for the school’s themed stall.
I bought a DIY felt bunny kit for my 9 year old.
My 4 year old was delighted to find a gnome in a leafy bed alongside her chocolate bunny (from Swiss Annie’s) on Easter morning.
Both my girls enjoyed filling their felt bunny baskets with the spoils of the morning’s hunt; mini eggs and gum-nuts alike.
The concept of Antipodean Easter is explored in a popular book in the Golden Hill Library, ‘Easter in Autumn’ by Collete Leenman.

It was a wonderful market day effort, well attended as Easter often is. The day was made extra special with Denise’s wonderful puppet play and the talented Jade’s face painting skills. What a beautiful spot on the river for a family rest point.
Many thanks and blessings on the parent and staff helpers who have brought ideas, energy and commitment to this stall over the seasons and the years.
