Spring Things…

The calendar says it is Spring…and it was a beautiful weekend. Today, not so much…rain.  And the farm down the road did their Spring fertilizing, and believe me, more than the weather stunk!

I dragged all the Leprechauns down to the basement (kicking and wailing like Banshees)  and brought up some of the Spring things.. Don’t have much for my  table top yet, but I am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life…and remember her cloche party on Apr. 2nd…

table 3492The egg vase holding the tulips is from Villeroy and Boch.  I have the large version too…

The Salt and Pepper shakers are Blue Robin’s eggs…I don’t have the Birds so many of you have, so maybe when these hatch I will have some..:)

The pitcher I got at Mikassa a few years ago..

table 3491 table 704 This is the larger egg, and the plates were a birthday gift from my friend Pam..:) And the bunny and carrot bowl from my friend Vita..Aren’t friends generous?

So it would be nice to treat them to a steak, twice baked potato, onion ring and asparagus dinner I think! But I didn’t..shame on me!

table 710

Yesterday was my dear little gdau’s bday.

She asked me if  I could make the cake one layer white,

one chocolate, iced in whipped cream and have pink writing…. But of course!

table 3483 

I didn’t get a good pic of the inside..sorry…

table 3484

It has whipped cream and cherries in between  the layers..

table 3487

Time for tea…I borrowed  Lily’s little silver tea set..and the cup is from my wedding china, Heather by Noritake.. The little chintz teapot and cup ornaments were a gift sent to me by a forum friend, Catie.. so cute!

table 735 Turning out my little Tea Pot lamp..and wishing you all good  night!

table 3494

  12. Looks so pretty! The cake looks delicious!

  13. What a great idea for a cake. I want to try this. Love your little teapot lamp, too.


  14. Kathleen, I really like that giant Easter egg you used as a centerpiece - a unique piece. I have a bunny-pitcher as well but I like yours better - your bunny looks cuter! The birthday/Easter plates are wonderful - must have been nice to get something that wasn't St. Pat's themed! Your gdaughter knows how to "design" a cake and her gmother knows how to bake it! Yummy!


  15. Great bunny table! The birthday tea party for Lily is wonderful!

    I have a tea pot lamp like that!


  16. Such a special cake for a very sweet little girl! I love your teapot lamp too!

  18. And what a lot of leprechauns you had to haul too! Your party was a blast! I have never seen a tulip vase, that is beautiful. The food looks wonderful. And what great cake looks delish. And what a fun lamp. Good night to you!

  19. I have never seen a post you wrote that I did not love....Your blog makes me so envious....

    Barb ♥

  28. How inspiring! It's just beautiful Thanks for posting.

  29. Hi Kathleen
    What a lovely table you've set today. I noticed that the cup of tea and some bubbles in it. My Mom always said that if you scooped out the bubbles with a spoon before they floated to the side of the cup that you would be getting some money. Thanks for that memory. I had forgotten all about it. I'm glad you joined the tea party today.
    Hugs, Rhondi

  30. Isn't it sweet when they make a very specific request for their birthday. You rock girlie!! I'd love to be Lily!!

  31. Wow, what a lovely, lovely post. Did you make that cake for your Grandaugther? It was beautiful. And it looked luscious.

    I have to admit your sidebar recipes are kinda/sorta making me drool.

    Great blog.

  32. Happy Birthday, Lily! Hope you saved me a piece of that delicious looking cake.
    I like the vase holding the beautiful tulips...but love the little silver tea service, how cute is that.

    Hey, just wanted to let you know that wishes do come true...sort of. Your egg salt and pepper shakers may not actually turn into the bird salt and pepper shakers but I did come across another set I had.

  35. I laughed thinking of you hauling the howling leprechauns off! Love your table and what a cake!!! What a lucky Birthday girl!

  36. You sure have a lot going on. Getting those little green men into the basement must have been quite the chore. Love all of the egg vases from V&B. Can you believe I don't have a one.

  41. Lucky Lily that her Nana made her such a tasty looking and pretty cake. It looks delicious.

    Kathleen, your spring table and accessories make me smile. I'm so over winter even though we still have snow here.

    I love the BIG EGG, very versatile and a great centerpiece.

  42. What a very sweet grandma you are, Kathleen! Lily's birthday cake looks delicious and oh, so pretty. It's time to bring out the spring things and start getting ready for Easter. It's nice to be home.

  43. I'm a little late to the party, but I hope you saved me a small piece of cake! Happy Birthday to Lily! I'm sure she knows what a wonderful Nana she has.
