Last week I posted that I’d host a little SPRING tablescape party to insure the cold and ice we have been having would leave us! It is still barely above freezing at night, and the only things that have bloomed are the daffodils and forsythia, but we will get there!
So tonight, I’ll put up the linky, might as well, paid for it for a year.
Everyone is welcome to link up a new, non Easter table tonight!
It will be small, didn’t advertise it much but that’s ok! We may be able to hold it in a phone booth! Oh wait, I haven’t seen one of those lately! Where will Superman change clothes?
It has to be a new table, NOT Easter, and Springy.
I have been reading that some bloggers are jumping to Summer, but not me! We haven’t enjoyed Spring yet, here in NY. I do understand the Southerners , but for those of us in the North East, we have to take time to smell the azaleas! They haven’t even bloomed yet!
When my 3 sisters and I asked for pierced ears, my mom told us that if God wanted us to have more holes in our ears, He would have made them that way! If He wanted to have Summer follow Winter, He would have omitted Spring. It’s a little slow this year, we must be patient!
So I feel I am doing the Lord’s work in doing Spring posts, lol! BTW, I still don’t have pierced ears. My sister got hers done when she was 40 and said not to tell my mom!
I picked all these daffodils from the yard, and they were my inspiration, free flowers!
I got this pretty cotton yellow and green striped remnant for $1.00 at Duralee. Those of you who sew know that Duralee is a designer brand. We are lucky to have an outlet about 50 min from here, and you have seen many of the bargains I have picked up there. Always a fun hunt, and actually I am feeling the need to visit soon!
Lime green placemat, white dinner, pale yellow plate from clearance in HG.
A plaid with green, yellow and some blue in a picket fence napkin ring , a gift from my friend Gail.
The white handled soup bowls are Hutschenreuther, made in Germany, and were 1.00! I found them on a bargain hunt with Alma a few years ago in Peter Andrews.
Swirled green flatware , Cambridge, via Cmas Tree Shops, and the little round bowls for a roll are from there too, .69.
The green and yellow stems were a gift from Alma.
I hope you all who celebrate Easter had a wonderful day!
We had a beautiful sunny day that began with Mike’s Cheese Babka.
(Alma gave me that pretty white runner!)
The Egg Hunt went well. 120 eggs were hidden and after each found 10, they counted up their loot!
The 2 youngest egg hunters…
My how they’ve grown!
I am sharing the recipe for my mom’s Rice Pudding. The whipped cream got piped on before we ate it. I shared it on FB so the gkids would have the recipe. If you haven’t liked Cuisine Kathleen on FB, would you? Thanks!
2 12 oz. Cans evaporated milk
1 Qt. whole milk
4 eggs 1 cup sugar 1 T vanilla
Cinnamon and Raisins to taste
2 Bags of Success rice cooked
Mix the milks, sugar and beaten eggs and vanilla in a pot. Keep stirring till thickened. Stir in your raisins and cook a bit longer.
Put your rice in a casserole bowl, and pour over the thickened mixture. Add cinnamon on top and chill.
Serve with fresh whipped cream. This makes a huge bowl, as each bag of rice is 3 cups. You may want to halve it unless you have a crowd to eat it!
Chocolate pound cake, with ganache and fresh whipped cream.
Cupcake eggs filled with cream, and dipped in chocolate, the tradition continues! I have been making them since my son was little, and now his 5 kids get them.
Thanks for stopping by!
Stop by Sarah’s, she’s giving away a $50 dollar gift card to Anthropologie.

It has to be a new , non Easter table tonight! I know, picky, picky! Small party, we can be selective! >)
