You know how we have been talking about blogs and all they have to offer?
Well, one of their advantages is learning from one another.
It's like having a huge living library at our disposal.
Lorraine, from the wonderful blog With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart, is an immensely talented blogger.
She does every kind of craft imaginable, is a great interior decorator and is also a fabulous cook and baker.
She shares everything with friends in blogland.
This Easter, I followed her instructions to make a "lambie pie" out of butter!
(You can read her instructional post on it here: http://www.gratefulprayerthankfulheart.com/2013/03/easter-butter-lamb.html)
Yes, on Easter morning I was grating a stick of butter before guests arrived to make a "woolly" coat for my lambie pie.
Here he is inside the refrigerator, waiting to be carried to the holiday table:
He drew lots of smiles and congratulations from delighted guests.
He's sitting on watercress. The flowers were plucked from my hyacinth plants!
I was SO THANKFUL to Lorraine for the instructions that I read on her blog.
She also shared a recipe for a pineapple sauce to put on the ham.
I made that, too, and it got rave reviews.
I even doubled the recipe so guests could take some home!
So many thanks to Lorraine for her terrific suggestions and to all of you for reading!
Like so many blogland friends, it's safe to say, "I LOVE blogging!"
p.s. The little bun buns shown at the very top of this post are displayed on a counter in the downstairs bathroom.
They were purchased years ago and are signed "Liz Williams."
They measure only about three inches by three inches and are among my favorite Easter decorations.
IN ADDITION TO MEETING WONDERFUL PEOPLE, WHAT DO YOU LOVE BEST ABOUT BLOGGING?
