Easter Inspiration

Our Easter looks like it's going to turn out to be really low key. Which although, we are looking forward to, we would have loved to have spent it with our family. It will be the first holiday in literally years that it's going to be, just the three of us. Of course we plan to pop in and drop off a basket of flowers to Granniebelle's so she can see Annabelle twirl in her pretty Easter dress. But other than a picnic, and a little egg hunt and maybe some kite flying if the weather allows, we have nothing extraordinary planned. So I am going to dream up an enormous Easter dinner or brunch or both, and put up all my inspirational pictures and get it out of my system.

Hoping to die eggs tomorrow. It will be, if you can believe this, my very first time, ever. I am super excited. Like little girl, kind of excited.

But if I was hosting Easter dinner you can be sure I'd be trying some of these delicious sounding recipes. How about Garlic Prime Rib, with dinner rolls, scalloped potatoes, asparagus, and maybe a fresh strawberry spinach salad. But then how would I ever decided between making this Carrot, or this Coconut Cloud Cake ? They both look and sound soooo good.

If I end up cooking at all I think I'll do something really simple like maybe this and this .

What are you cooking up for Easter Sunday? We'd love to hear all about it.

Splash of Spring Color.

I am craving a bright spot of orange. A refreshing hint of any and every pastel shade of green and blue. Wth a generous helping of happy sunshine yellow thrown in to make it truly spring.

Springy Thingy

Hello everyone! It has taken MONTHS for me to be inspired....... I know that may sound silly, but it is the fact. Anyone share in that feeling ever??

Well, SPRING is finally creaping in on us. First we get AMAZING, shining, bright sunny days... then SNOW, though the snow generally melts away quickly.

In light of these spring days, I have been doing some "leg work" for my sister who is throwing a baby shower for our sister-in-law come next month. In doing this "leggy work" (thought that made it sound sillier- if that is possible) I have found some very cute and inspiring pictures and have now been inspired to CREATE!
I do hope to be back up and "inspired" more often. So hopefully I will be seeing some of you.
P.S. FAIRLIGHT, I am so jealous of your drive............ :) MUAHS dear ones!
