Happy Easter!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! 
I had the family over for dinner and it was so nice to all be together for the holiday.
I normally use pastels for Easter, but this year I was drawn to these vintage dishes.  Poppy Trail Strawberry by Metlox.
Tiger's place setting included a cat placemat and a bunny napkin ring.  
The adults had just a plan placemat but we did have gingham napkins with bird napkin rings. 
A simple center piece with a couple of bunnies on a strawberry platter.  
A traditional dinner of baked ham, mac'n'cheese, steamed asparagus, baby peas, rolls and a nice berry pie for dessert.  It was good even if I did cook most of it myself!
After dinner Tiger hunted some Easter eggs in my front yard.
The sun was bright and Tiger was moving so fast I didn't get any good photos.  Oh well, he had fun!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Easter.  We are still on baby watch so if I'm a bit absent from the blog that is why.  I'm taking dinner to Sara twice a week and helping with Tiger all I can so she can rest.  Baby girl will be here soon and I'll have photos galore of her! 

To leave you with a little Easter collection that came about by accident.  
These bunny pieces are made by Avon and I kept finding pieces at the thrift shop until, a collection! 

Tuesday is Tiger's 4th Birthday, where did the year go!  

Wishing you JOY,

Such a happy post Linda! You know I am loving the strawberry dishes...such a pretty Easter table. The Avon bunnies are so sweet. I can't believe Tiger is going to be 4! My goodness, he just turned! I wonder if the baby might make an appearance on that day. I am so excited for you.

Hugs, Vicky

Tiger is going to be 4!! Time flys by!!
Sounds like a nice Easter.

Cheri said...

Why is it that ham and asparagus are what we have for a traditional Easter dinner too.??? Just seems to go together. LOL

Thinking about all of you and waiting for news and photos of the little Miss. I think Tiger is going to be a great older brother, it is hard to believe he will be four. I remember when I first met you and you said your were going to be a grandma for the first time. You were beyond excited.

The bunny collection is so cute!
Do I detect a hint of excitement in Grandma's post?!

Sounds like y'all had a nice Easter. I remember those strawberry plates from the late 60's/early 70's. I wanted them back then as they had lots of avocado in them!
