Forgive us our dye-stained fingers. With Easter coming early this year, we've been in a DIY frenzy this week, and we've got the robin's egg blue residue on our keyboards to prove it.
We're so excited that we've practically been walking around the office wearing bunny ears: Erin made Forsythia Bundle Napkin Rings, Alexa created Easter Radish Centerpieces, Sarah dipped Moody Hibiscus-Dyed Eggs, Justine filled hollowed out eggs with Hanging Easter Posies, and I ate all the jelly beans I could find lying around. We all did our part, in other words.
Still plenty of time to make the Posies, by the way. Just saying.

Where We're Going: To the Saipua House Plant Sale, Saturday and Sunday, from 10 am to 6 pm at 147 Van Dyke St., Brooklyn, New York. We'll take the chandelier too, please.
What We're Eating: Lavender-Earl Gray Flourless Chocolate Cake, tested in the kitchen this week by our own Amy Widdowson. Amy pronounced this cake delicious after taking it to her in-laws' house for Passover. "But sprinkle something on top before you serve it, otherwise it is not the prettiest dessert you've ever seen," she says. Will do.
What We're Coveting: Julie's Magic Brush (shown above), borrowed for a photo shoot of bookshelves and a flat screen TVs. Hmm, where else have we seen Julie's Magic Brush this week?
For more of the brush's Where's-Waldo-adventures, come back for Monday's Domestic Dispatches column, in which we will solve the design dilemma of the flat screen TV once and for all.
What We're Tweeting: #GardenChores to Win Copper Hand Tools from Williams-Sonoma Agrarian. Want. The. Hand. Fork.
What We're Doing in the Garden: Planting Trellis Olive Trees along the back fence (interspersed with climbing roses—more on that later).
