~Easter Tablescape and Simple & Sweet Fridays #111~

I wanted to share with you our Easter Tablescape this year.
Lots of great finds!
Home Goods was my big shopping spree.
I showed you the Rabbit Tea Towels I made on an earlier post.
The Graphics Fairy shows you all kinds of easy projects.


~Paper Rosettes~
I love my new pillows from Marshalls.
They have ruffles just like the runner
 I found at Home Goods.
I always love displaying my glass candlesticks from Anthropologie.
The Easter table was full of color this year.
The crocheted eggs I found at Pier 1, 
they look whimsical hanging from the chandelier.
Of course, I had to get out my vintage silverware
 for the place settings.
Cute black and white plates I found at Home Goods.
Desserts displayed on our antique buffet.
A view from upstairs tells you 
Easter is here!
We wish you all a 
 Happy Easter!!

Now, lets see all your wonderful projects you've been working on!!

~Easter Desserts~

I have been trying new recipes out for our Easter dinner.
I thought I'd share them with you.

I found this lemon cake mold at our favorite store, 
Home Goods.
I just bought a Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Mix
at the grocery store.
Bought some fresh lemons.
Made a glaze with lemon and powdered sugar.
Easy and so pretty when you slice it!
I saw another quick & easy recipe on the Food Network channel.
Barefoot Contessa's
~Amaretto Pound Cake~
Buy some pound cake from the grocery store 
or if you have the time make your own.
Drizzle some Amaretto over a slice of pound cake.
Top with some vanilla ice cream.
Then sprinkle some toasted sliced almonds on top.
Delicious!
Madeleines are always so pretty and perfect for a light dessert!

I made some cupcakes and decorated them with goodies.

Candies in a jar for the kids.
I cheated and bought these butter cookies.
I needed some for my new cloche!
Happy Easter Week!

~Relaxing After The Sale~

Relaxing after our Craft Fair this last weekend.
The garden was beautiful.


Our artichokes this year are huge!


~Brussel Sprouts~




~Color Everywhere~
A Paris Vignette with wooden eggs.
I stamped them last year.
I decoupaged some eggs.
I found some vintage music sheet paper at the thrift store.
I love how they look on the lace tablecloth.
I had some leftover paper from the project for the Easter cups,
I shared with you before.
 Butterflies added more Spring color to the container. 


A view from the kitchen.
I picked some Pom Pom Hydrangeas for a friend.
I love Springtime!
