This winter has been long. So long. I can’t actually remember a winter that I’ve longed to have over with like this one. And yet spring seems to be pulling the covers up over her head and refusing to wake up, officially and for good. And I’m getting tired of the wool boyfriend cardigan, and the huge red parka. The seersucker is calling me…
I’m trying. Mightily, I might add. I’m planting the plants and I’m planning the Easter feast and I’m decorating (a little). And doing some spring cleaning. I refinished the wrought iron chairs and tables on the deck and patio. And I washed all the dust ruffles and pillow shams and stuff. And the mulch is down, and the flowers are popping up and the grass is green and lush.
But darned if it isn’t C.O.L.D. outside.
So I brought a little happy inside. I bought the most lovely daffodils in pots. Then I repotted them in some nice old clay pots, and added some moss.
I love how they look.
For our Easter table I found these little pretties…
(Is that dust on my table? OMG.) I am a big fan of bunnies. I added a soft green ribbon and a pretty tag…
Half of the place settings will have the bunnies, half will have these:
Those are fancy truffle eggs. I cannot wait to sink my teeth into a couple of those.
I bought candles, and I will probably buy some tulips, too, because they are incredibly beautiful when they droop gracefully over the side of the vase.
I ordered the ham, planned the menu, and bought napkins. Remember the great napkin caper of Thanksgiving 2010? I wasn’t about to let that happen again my friends. I got the cutest napkins ever. EVER. With a bunny, and flowers and a little honeybee, too. I love these napkins. (Are there other people that get excited over napkins?)
I can’t wait to spend this beautiful holiday with our family…all 19 of us. (That’s a whole lotta lemon herb potatoes I’ll be making…)
