It is snowing as I write. Not sticking, but it dark and dreary. I almost changed my table to black and white.
But, positive thinking is the way to go, right?
My mom made the bowl I used for the centerpiece. She raised 4 girls. One sister was in a wheelchair her whole life and needed A LOT of care. My mom would never have been a blogger, or read blogs. She was just too busy! Cooking, cleaning, gardening, she did it all. She was widowed at 49. I am sure she would think I should be making better use of my time! :)
Once I was married she bought a condo in Fla. She started doing ceramics with the people she met there. Didn't we all in the late 70's! Even the art classes in school had the little ones doing it.
So this bowl she made,though not a work of art, is special to me.
She LOVED yellow, so in her honor, a yellow and white table.
Yellow and white bedspread, trimmed in eyelet for the tablecloth. I have had it for years, always used it for a table.
Flatware, yellow plate , paisley napkin, and Apilco Lion Head covered bowl by WSonoma/PBarn .
Little "Vase" of flowers at each place. The vase is the glass a candle came in. Once is was used up I popped it in the freezer and popped out the remaining wax. I use them for a lot of things!
The two stems are by Dansk.
Little yellow bowls for a roll, are from Target.
That's my Springy table for a very wintery day!
Now on to the yolks. I make these every year for Easter. They are made in a Wilton egg pan. Use your favorite cake recipe, I make some chocolate, and some white. Drop a teaspoon of cream cheese icing ( cream cheese, sugar, and some margarine mixed well, add a drop of yellow food coloring) in the middle and bake.
When they are cooled dip into melted chocolate icing. I use melted choc chips and butter. Place on rack to cool.
Pipe with cream cheese icing and add the jelly bean. Don't add the jelly bean until ready to serve, or they will run. I flatten out pastel cup cake papers to put them on.
For the next four weeks I'll share some of the foods we have each Easter. Do you have anything special you make for this holiday or Passover?
I am joining Susan at BNOTP for Tablescape Thursday and Gollum for Foodie Friday.
Thanks for visiting, say NO to Snow ! :)
