Easter Feaster and a Prize:>)

We had a wonderful Easter! I can't remember the last time it actually felt like spring for Easter Sunday. All the little girls in their fluffy dresses at church were glorying in it:>)

We had a fabulous Easter Feast. The table was groaning with Ham, Honey Baked Turkey, Creamed peas and parslied new potatoes, broccoli salad and sis-in- love's soft home made crescent rolls.
Dessert was furnished by my other sister-in-love Penny who made this gorgeous trifle. A double chocolate trifle topped with fresh raspberries and drizzled with her home made chocolate sauce. Oh. my.
I also wanted to share the amazing table runner I won from Into Vintage who makes the most beautiful things from vintage tablecloths and sells them in her etsy shop. You have to go there and see. I want one of everything.
The table runner I won is perfect for the direction I am going with the kitchen and dining room. The colors are beautiful, and along with the runner she sent a lavender sachet and a tissue holder for my purse.
Thank you Amy! I love my prize and I love your blog!
If you have never been there, go visit. You'll love it:>)
I trust everyone had a wonderful day, Spring is here and I feel happy all the time. Seriously, Spring does that to me. How about you? Are you feeling the joy yet?


  1. What a beautiful post. It is so Springlike and fresh.

    I also loved your pink glassware.

  2. What a pretty table - and indeed, that trifle does look wonderful.

  3. Your table setting is beautiful and the food...Oh my!! YummY!
    Love the runner...mostly because its vintage!!
    Have a great week!

  4. Kathy, your table is beautiful!!! I love the pink and purple together. So happy you had warm weather. It rained and was windy cold here in California.

    Congrats on your win! I LOVE Amy's work and the runner could not have been more perfect for your room. Perfect perfect perfect!

    love ya,

    PS: Any chance on getting the recipe for the trifle? My mouth is watering looking at it.....

  5. I agree with Becky, everything looks so pretty. Happy Spring!

  6. What a beautiful Easter you had . . your table looks fabulous, pansies are my favorites . . so fresh. Lucky you to win that table runner. We had a quiet Easter but pleasant . . Church Service and Brunch and one birthday celebration. Have a good day Kathy!

  7. Easter sounds like it was wonderful at your house Kathy! We missed Easter dinner this year. I was on a plane flying home from France and they served us beef and rice or pasta and fish (yucky).
    I plan on making a belated Easter dinner next Sunday.

    What a wonderful runner! I am looking forward to the changes you will be making.

  8. Everything looks wonderful, from the food to the lovely items...

  9. Your table is so pretty! That Trifle looks DELISH! I made one for Easter also and posted the recipe today. Easy peasy. I so need a non etched Trifle bowl though. Takes a prettier photo.
    I AM joyful, but ALSO have Spring fever ...not wanting to be inside at work. ;-)

  10. Oh that table runner is made with a good idea! So many old tea towels are only part good.
    Your Easter table looks worth groaning :)

  11. what a beautiful table!! love all the colours!

    happy easter!

  12. We got 7 inches of snow last night. Not feeling the joy yet. Hopefully soon. Love your Easter table. Have you talked about your beautiful dishes before? I LOVE them! Are they pink or red? What are they called? I need a better look. You most certainly can come over when we have the kids over! The more the merrier. Mimi

  13. Becky, I'll try to get Earls sister to part with the recipe for you;>)
    Mimi Sue, I am pretty sure I have featured the dishes before, they are pink, Johnson Brothers Rose Bouquet. The whole set was found at a church rummage sale for $15. I thought I found the Holy Grail (pardon the pun) They are used for every holiday and special occasion I can think of, even the ones that don't call for pink rose dishes:>)

  14. Actually I'm feeling the heat LOL! Kathy it's so darn hot here! I don't do well with heat. I think we've skipped spring and just went into summer!

    Your table looks so pretty! Oh that trifle....gosh that looks amazing!

    Your runner is so pretty! I did go look at her etsy. Those pillows are so wonderful!


  15. Oh you are a lucky duck! I have several of Amy's pillows and her work is superb. I love the little bonus sachet she always scent along too. I'm looking forward to seeing what your new look will be.

  16. Happy Belated Easter and thank you for your kind words about my work. :-) -amy

    Lucky duck...it went to the perfect home!

    Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter! Dessert looks yummy! I love rasberries!

    I fractured my shoulder by rolling over in bed! Can you believe it?
    I heard a pop and it started hurtin so I thought I could baby it and it would heal! NOPE.....
    It is still hurting!
    I couldn't believe it when the xray showed it was fractured!
    I thought it was a nerve or muscle or tendons!

    Enjoy your week sweetpea,
    Thanks for visiting!
    Hugz, Dolly

  25. Oh Boy!! That trifle looks delicious...I love anything with raspberries.....and your prize is so pretty...I love vintage lines from the 50's....I laughed when I read your comment on my blog...I guess I do have a strange life..always something wacky happening but you haven't even heard the half of it....One day I will write a post about some of the really strange stuff...it will certainly make for interesting reading....Enjoy this gorgeous Spring weather..I've started working on my tan!!
