Delicious Holiday Snapshots

Hello dear friends! I hope you had a wonderful Easter holiday.


Saturday the Fashionista and I went to go see “Beauty and the Beast” which we happily sang along to and swooned over the costume and set designs.

We also created a strawberry cream cheese cake topped with organic edible flowers.


This was also our 28th year of dying eggs together.


Which our girl always turns into the most delicious deviled eggs. Her secret is German mustard.

(The pressed glass plate is part of a set that belonged to my Grandma Mary.)


For our Easter luncheon the eggs accompanied a host of other side dishes to include strawberry tea sandwiches and cucumber peach sandwiches. The recipe for the later can be found on page 82….


…of the March/April 2017 edition of “Southern Lady”. The strawberry cake recipe can be found on page 98 as well as the Raspberry Lemonade recipe on page 70. The image at the very top of this post features the lemonade with the addition of some sparkling rosé wine. It paired beautifully with the baked ham and potato salad with dill we had for dinner.


May you enjoy a beautiful spring week!

It's just beautiful Laura! And I like that you and the Fashionista are still on the pink theme! The deviled eggs sound great. We color eggs too and it's the most fun! Sounds like a beautiful Easter!

It appears that you've had a special time over the Easter period. Mother and daughter time and family traditions are so important for our wellbeing and sense of identity. I love your images and that cake you both created looks too good to eat . Elizabeth xxx

What beautiful pics - so happy you enjoyed your wonderful Easter Day!

Sounds like you had some fun too.

We went to Beauty and the Beast the weekend it came out, because my eldest daughter HAD to - she sang along to every single song, too.

My 3 nieces went, too. It was such fun!

Hermione Granger (lol) sings beautifully, too, who knew? ♫ ♪ ♫

I'd like to see it again.

Delightful post. Fun to think of you two enjoying the festivities. Pretty pics. Didn't know you could buy Rose in a pretty pink can.
