Good morning. It’s Good Friday a day of prayer and vigils, as a child my grandmother and then my mother would make us sit quietly in a chair from 12-3:00 to think about the significance of the day. To be honest, I cannot remember if we actually made it the entire 3 hours or if we were even contemplating the Crucifixion. All I know is that we were probably contemplating Easter Sunday dinner and our baskets. This Easter is April 1st, April fools day which also happens to be my grandmother’s birthday. I miss her all the time but most often at the holidays. Happy Birthday grandma, and a happy Easter to you too.
This week everywhere I looked there was a recipe, a table scape, or an arrangement for Easter. There were so many great things it was hard to narrow it down to my favorites.

But this all white Easter table scape caught my eye because it is unique and I think something that everyone could make. You could get a beautiful branch from your yard and be particularly careful blowing out the eggs you use to bake your cakes, add a few little white bunnies, plates and candle holders and voila, you could have your own version of this gorgeous table scape from Dreams Come True. I do think some of the eggs are goose eggs and I do not know where you get those unless you have a few in your garden.

This non-traditional colorful table from Coco Kelly is another favorite.

Another easy and delicious recipe is this Swedish Pastry. This pastry is served at every family gathering we have and it is scrumptious.

Instagram is a magical place if you do not get caught up in the comparison game. I personally love to discover new interesting artists, bakers, etc. In the case of Natasja Sadi’s Cake Atelier Amsterdam is is a combination of all three. Natasja is an artist with sugar paste flowers. You can see her work on Instagram or on Cake Atelier Amsterdam’s web page. Can you even believe this arrangement? I am in awe each time she posts an image.
Do you wear perfume? Do you change your fragrance every season or do you have a signature scent? If you would like to Find Your Signature Scent check out this article. This inexpensive perfume from Lollia is one of my favorites for Spring.
I love this art from Yellana James.
Thats is for this week, as always please share your finds. I always enjoy reading about what you are making, eating, watching, seeing and doing.
I hope that you have a blessed weekend and Easter.
