Yvette of On Ponderosa Lane asked me what was in the Easter basket that I was lucky enough to get yesterday.
Well, here's my stash. Starting on the left we have seven fabric fat quarters (love 'em all), a package of colored index cards and narrow sticky notes for marking pages in books or magazines. (I go through those like crazy-fast.) In the center is an individual ceramic (oven safe) baking dish that I'll probably use for decoration in the kitchen, too. To the right below that are some very festive cupcake papers. Up and to the right are three darling little baskets. I love baskets. Big baskets, small baskets, I love baskets!
My daughter has a real knack for finding little gifty-things that I really like. We're both desk accessory nuts so anything like the narrow strip sticky notes or colored index cards are always a hit. (In the past she's found me the most decorative and unusual paper clips you'll ever see!) I don't know where she comes up with some of the stuff. I'll ask her where she found a certain thing and her smug reply is always a mysterious, "I have my sources."
The Easter holiday has definitely come and gone, and it's time to put away the decorations. Generic "spring" decorations go up next and the way our weather is today, I'm feeling like we may have finally turned the corner from cold and wet into something more fitting for April-almost-May. It's a gorgeous day and if I had been home this morning I definitely would have hung the wash out on the line. As it was, I got a couple of loads washed and in the dryer before I left and finished up a couple more when I got home.
I go now to package up the bulk of Papa Pea's homemade better-than-Mounds Bars for hiding in the freezer. No, I'm not making it hard for him to access them; he asked me to leave a couple/few out and freeze the rest so he could portion them out as special treats. (Or maybe he was afraid of gobbling them all up in the next two days and getting an awful bellyache.)
