Getting Ready for Easter

 I have a friend that is a terrible cook by her own admission.  It doesn't stop her from cooking though.  She had a dinner party last night and served quinoa meatballs that she said were horrible.  She tried them in advance, said they were awful and she served them anyway.  Go figure!  Glad I wasn't invited.  So, I baked her a cake to serve for dessert.  Dessert saves many bad dinner parties! As you can see I need a lot of cake decorating practice so I jumped at the opportunity!

I made her a loaf of rosemary bread and one of those terrific blueberry and goat cheese pies.                                                    

 I'm having a big family Easter here this year.  Teddy will have to stay in the kitchen and no one will be allowed to do dishes!  I have an idea for how I want to decorate the table so I've been hitting thrift stores a lot.  I found this German bakelite rabbit in perfect shape for 99 cents!

 I got a set of 8 of these yellow depression glass dinner plates for 2.00 each.  Quite a deal!

 And a perfect pink cake plate for the same price.

 This vasoline glass cake plate was only 2.99. They are all perfect for Easter though I'll probably set the table with my French flow blue. 

Here are some of the vintage pieces I picked up.  I'll post a pic when I've finished the table.  That yellow pot on the left is a vintage McCoy piece that was 79 cents!
