oh smocking!
you're right up there in my nostalgic favourite signs-o-springtime with crocuses popping up, pastel coloured painted eggs & Eastery bonnets!

it's an art i'd love to learn one day, but i don't think i have the patience quite yet.
so happy to see the revival of this fabulous art form in the past few years around here.
just gorgeous!

what's your favourite Easter time artform?
