Easter

Matty and I walked around the city yesterday to see everyone dressed up for Easter!
We saw flowers,



Butterflies,
Feathers,



Cake,
Rabbits,




and a Transformer! Although I'm not quite sure what he has to do with Easter ;)

I love your life, and I dream of coming to the city one day. The city that you show me, is the city I dream of. Cool costumes on Easter........I love your blog Katie, and would love to feature you on mine soon!

Nikki Comer said...

I love Easter because it is the demonstration of God that life is

essentially spiritual and timeless.
Hope you had a Egg-ceptional, Eggs-traordinary Easter !!!

Larysse Tavares said...

Amazing pictures! I loved them, I didn't know people like to wear costume during Easter. And I'm pretty sure the transformer has something to do with eggs transforming into chocolate :)

colormekatie said...

Haha!

colormekatie said...

@Nikaela- I was thinking about making a fun hat but I thought it would be a bit hard to balance while taking pictures.


Random fact- The hat in the third picture weighs 20 pounds!

jokemijn said...

Martin-Oliver said...

Maria-Thérèse afiori.com said...

How wonderful!!! Is this a common tradition?

Here in Sweden we dress up as Easter witches on the Thursday before Easter :D The witches get sweets and money. My sister and I handed out cake instead and she was a bunny but we went "Easter witching" nonetheless complete with giant painted on freckles and rosy cheeks. (see blog for proof)

Indie Mom and the Reluctant Banker said...

I love the one with the guy in the pink shirt and the bunny ears. He looks so serious, yet cute.

Mikaela said...

Oh, I love the first flower! I wish I could say I had seen something similiar in sweden now over the holidays, but no bunnies or flowers for me. :(

Mrs.Mayhem said...

I absolutely LOVE your style!

Katie @ The Pease Pod said...

This is going to sound weird, and kinda creepy haha. You are on my google reader, and I love your posts! So the other night, you were in a dream of mine. I dreamed you became this huge rock star, and sang that song from the 80's "I don't give a damn about my reputation" and danced around on stage. haha. I saw you and thought to myself (in my dream), "Hey, I read her blog before she was famous!" It's so weird to live in a day and age where you dream about someone you don't even know because you saw their blog. The end. :)

colormekatie said...

That is hilarious!!! I think I'm gonna sing that song for the rest of the day ;)

~ said...

The Cake one and the Transformer were the beeeest <33

Teresa said...

Great images, well done. Wishing you happiness, Katherine

Stephanie said...

Too funny, at first I thought that first shot was a rabbit ear bouquet that you made. Now I see it's ... well, I'm still not sure, but it looks like it's outside. Gives me great inspiration for things to try next year, though!

Erin said...

So cool!!

Aury said...
