Happy Easter

Happy Easter! While it's not on my birthday this year, I was born on Easter Sunday, so it's always been kind of a special day. This year, we had Mel's parents over for lunch. Mel's mom was kind enough to bring all the food since we're still settling in, so we had lasagna, lamb, and asparagus. And of course, there was plenty of cheery colorful Easter candy for snacking after dessert.


I sent my mom a couple of quick snaps of the first table I setup in the new house (no tablecloth because I haven't unpacked them yet), and this is what she sent me back. Isn't that so cute?


It's such a beautiful day here, we've been enjoying our new yard and deck.


Hope those of you in the Northern hemisphere are having a wonderful Spring day wherever you are, too!

    1. Teensy yard though! But perfect for our 6 lb. dog, ha ha. Once we're more settled and actually have furniture in all the rooms, I think we'll try and have a little vintage get-together, I'd love for you to come, then you can enjoy it for yourself. lol :)

  5. I just got a new (new to me!) casserole dish with the exact same flower pattern as the plates in your picture. If you happen to know the name of the pattern, let me know. Happy Easter!

    1. Hi Chrissy, if you're looking for more, the pattern is referred to as Primrose, by Fire King. If I recall correct it's from the early 60s. There's several baking dishes, plates, cups, snack trays, you name it! It's pretty easy to find pieces for a reasonable price online, too. :)

  15. You two look so wonderfully happy - not to mention lovely in your stylish springtime thread. I can't help but love the fact that we're both in the midst of setting up (and settling into) new homes at the same time.
