Hello there, thanks for stopping by! I was looking through my crochet pattern and photo file on my MacBook and came across a pattern I found last year but never got around to making. So, I grabbed my hot pink cotton yarn and made this little cutie!
I need to go look in my yarn stash for some bright yellow! Doesn't he look cute with my crochet eggs?
I definitely need more bunny peeps to keep this one company!
You can get this fabulously well written pattern HERE.
We saw a flower vendor on the side of the road from the Costco parking lot on Thursday so when we left I pulled up and Dayle hopped out of the car and bought a bouquet for the Easter table. This is a super double tulip, have you ever seen one like this?
What drew me to this bouquet is the Stargazer Lily - 3 of them. This is our wedding flower and I love them.
There are also some bright red regular tulips.. I just love taking a close up of the center of a tulip.
The last shot of my tablescape.. I'll have to move all the cute stuff to make room for 10 of us at the table.. and a ham and I'm trying a new recipe for the potatoes. Sue, at Mrs. Micawber's blog left a comment on my blog post when I said I was making scalloped potatoes for Easter dinner - she said she'd just made Gratin Dauphinoise, which she figured was much like my recipe. So, I googled what she made and am going to try this French dish! Wish me luck!
I got a container of Jelly Belly eggs at Costco to fill the eggs for our egg hunt. There are many leftover, for us adults!
We leave for a week at the beach in 3 days - I'm taking these books to read while we're gone. The Caravan book I got after seeing it on Lucy's blog. It will stay in our trailer/caravan for visitors to look through. I was inspired by Jennifer at Thistlebear blog to get the book "Make the Bread, Buy the Butter" cookbook. The center book was written about the local Oregon tribes. Fun reads! On my iPad I'm reading "Astoria" by Peter Stark. Good read!
This is a cute book!
This tells you what is sensible to buy, and what you can make at home easier and cheaper.
My people! I'm part Native American.. Cherokee.. my great great great grandfather married an Indian woman in Oklahoma - he was McAlister - Scottish. :-)
OK, hubby and I are off to try a BBQ place, Dave's Famous BBQ - and then we have to pick up some gruyere cheese, heavy cream and green onions for my Easter dinner potatoes.
Have a wonderful day tomorrow, I look forward to hearing from you how you celebrate this special holiday. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
