braiding palm leaves

This week is Holy Week, which began with Palm Sunday. We were given palms at our church along with the rest of the congregation. Our newsletter states:

“Blessed palms have always been respected as holy objects or sacramental. Some families place one or more on the wall behind a crucifix or holy picture until the next Palm Sunday, or they might braid them into crosses for wall decorations.”

This was the first year that we received palms. When we got home, Geoffrey set to braiding them just as he had done when he was younger. We plan on displaying them with our other important possessions once they’re dry.

Remy was baptized at this time last year, which is so fitting given that this is the time when we, as Christians, renew our baptism.

I also found it fitting that Geoffrey braided the palm leaves on our church pew that serves as our dining room seating.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Easter! I’ll see you next week.

what i bought.

i have recently discovered my new favourite ebay store! tambukiki!!

my most common search terms in ebay include “bodysuit,” “ballet,” and “wildfox.” when i typed in “ballet” and limited to dresses in my size, i repeatedly saw results for one store in particular. being the curious cat that i am, i clicked on the link to take me to tambukiki. i was instantly taken aback by their beautiful garments, how they were unique without being too garish, and their reasonable prices. i felt as if i had discovered a gold mine! not only that, the sellers were quick to ship the items, and even quicker to leave wonderful feedback. i guarantee that i will be shopping from them again and again.
