Angel Place Setting...



Isn't this the sweetest angel place setting?

There are actually four of them on the table of one of my sisters.

When spotted, they automatically make a person smile.

The little votive candles just add another sweet touch to the angel girls.

Hopefully, your day has been touched by the angels and here's hoping your night will be, too!

DO YOU USE PLACE SETTINGS AT YOUR OWN TABLE?

Daisy, Daisy....

White daisies with centers the color of goldenrod are among my favorite flowers.

They are so sweet and simple yet quite cheerful, too.

Two bunches of daisies in cut glass vases, one big and one small, rest on the main kitchen counter. 

Each day I whisper to them how lovely they are and, well, they truly are!

They make me want to sing the first lines of the "Bicycle Built for Two" song that began with a chorus of, "Daisy, Daisy, give me your promise true. I'm half crazy, over my love for you..."


Let's hear it for simple, perky daisies, symbols of spring and happy, sunny days.

DO YOU LIKE DAISIES, TOO?

Natural Pastel Eggs

Did you know eggs come in different shades besides brown and white?

It all depends on the breeds of the chickens laying the eggs.  

That's what I read anyway.

On trips to Kinderhook Farm in Valatie, New York, perusing the farm store is great fun. 

Everything looks fresh and nicely displayed. 

Meats, including different kinds of bacon, come wrapped and frozen in precision order under the lift up lid of the freezer.

Some eggs definitely make it home with me since fresh farm eggs are always more appealing than supermarket eggs.

The yolks are often deep yellow, bordering on orange. They taste better, too!

If you have the opportunity to buy fresh eggs, whatever you do, don't pass it by.

While all the pastel shades are pretty, light turquoise is my favorite.


ARE THEIR FRESH EGGS AVAILABLE IN NEARBY FARMS WHERE YOU LIVE?
