Easter decorations in Italy

We just got back from a trip to Italy and stores were at the beginning stages of setting up their Easter displays.   The first stop on our trip was Florence to visit a few artists and we noticed that Gilli, the centuries-old cafe in Piazza della Repubblica, had exquisitely decorated  windows.

Here are some photos of several more store windows in Florence.  The reflections are distracting, but hope you can make out the fish-topped chocoate eggs and the chickens hatching from chocoate eggs in the photo below.  Any child would be thrilled to have the Easter Bunny deliver one of these!

"Fried" chocolate eggs - yum!

This fabulous egg with the lamb on top was in Siena.  Little lambs tumble down the side of the egg also.  Sure makes you want to be a kid again.
