Pink Saturday

I have some sweet Easter/Spring things to share with you today....nothing in pink!!!

Oh wait, there is some pink in the candies!!!  Are these toooooo cute??  I couldn't resist them, there is a bee and a lady bug too....and look at those chocolate carrots!!!!

These little lambies are very vintage from West Germany, the smaller white one has tiny green glass eyes, such a treasure!!!  The egg was made by an old dear friend from Russia who sat at my kitchen table with a ball point pen and decorated a blown out egg!!!!   No pattern, just off the top of her head!!!  The iron rabbit is a place card holder....could only afford the one!!!

Birdcage is a recent buy from HL with a coupon of course, tucked in a birds nest in dark brown with aqua eggs on shredded pages from an old dictionary.

 I love this little velvet chick,  am always on the lookout for the velvet figures....
One of my mom's linen towels graces her antique walnut end table......thanks for stopping by.....

Easter bread

Spent the day baking yesterday and the house smells soooooo good!! 

This is the dough before rising, used 8 eggs for this batch......

The dough is then shaped and covered for the second rising, here it is brushed with egg and ready to go in the oven......

Here they are cooling before wrapping....will set a table later for Easter breakfast!!!

Pi Nu girls!!!

Just recently, after tooooo many years, I hooked up with my sorority sisters from college, many living in this area.......went to dinner last night and had so much fun and a lot of laughs.  Here we are, I am the third from the left...

We are planning a weekend get away in September.....if you are a Pi Nu Epsilon girl from Alfred Tech, back in 1966, please contact me.......

We had snow yesterday and daffodils were crying.......but inside Spring has sprung and Easter decor abounds!!!

This little dresser is in my dining room, and I have brought out my little suitcase for an Easter older brother was in the Navy when I was very little and he brought this darling suitcase to me from Italy where he was stationed.  It always held doll clothes, and someday I will show those to you, but today it holds a nest, sweet plate and little book from ME.......

The white rabbit is a gift from a dear friend.......later, will show you what I made for her.....

These are alabaster, marble and agate eggs I have collected since......oh, so long ago!!!

These little cuties are on my counter.....just to keep me company!!!

This is an antique apple bowl holding many kitchen implements and treasures....and some carrots for you know who!!!

These little chickies are circling a bowl of dried split peas on top of a pine cupboard also in the kitchen.....

This antique corner cupboard graces my front foyer and is probably my very favorite piece of furniture......from an old farmhouse in Penn., it was built right into the corner of the dining room.....

Wishing you a Blessed Easter and hope that Spring will soon be everywhere!!!   hugs....Cleo
