Of course, I usually show you a few photos of my holiday decorations each time a new holiday rolls around, and Easter is no exception. And, of course, each year's decorations look similar to the last, although I try to make a few changes from year to year, so maybe there's some value in sharing my photos. And THIS year, of course, I know you're all just dying to see where I create my complex puff pastry recipes and make the magic happen, right?
But first, about yesterday's post--it's always a little bit of a shock to me to get negative comments out of the blue, especially when I'm talking about something so seemingly innocuous as puff pastry. Frankly, to get a comment like that one--well, it's at least half funny, but in a sad sort of way. I always wonder how miserable a commenter's life must be to cause him or her to share such a caustic little attitude toward life. Of course, my post was half serious and half tongue-in-cheek, but I appreciated the support and comments from all of you. Life's a funny thing, and it takes all sorts, doesn't it?
So, anyway, enough of that. Welcome to my kitchen! Here you'll see several examples of the fabric carrots I shared with you a few posts back. In fact, now that I think about it, I actually gave you a RECIPE for the carrots, didn't I?
The Easter quilt that's on my table is half my own creation and half from a pattern. I keep thinking that one of these days, I'll design something similar but it will be ALL my creation, and then I can make a pattern available. But it hasn't happened yet, darn it!
Do you remember my creepy bunnies? They've been released from the Sweat Shop to make an appearance for the holiday high up on a shelf, where they can keep watch over us while we dine.
In fact, I'm hoping you can help me name them. Here's a closer view--again, see the carrots?
Awwwwwww, isn't that sweet? They're holding hands!
I kind of think if they had cute names, it might take some of the creepiness away, but I'm open to anything. I don't know if you remember, but Pink Flamingo Dianne named my Halloween witch, Cacklin' Rosie, remember? She almost killed herself doing it, too, because she was thinking so hard, she forgot to watch where she was going and very nearly ran into a support column on a building. (I think it might have been JoAnn's!) So if you want to play along and come up with a name for this pair, please DO be careful and watch where you're going okay? (*See terms and conditions set forth below.)
And did I happen to mention? There just might be a little spring/Easter prize package for the person who comes up with the best names. Let's leave the naming open until Friday night. I'll either announce my choice on Saturday, or if there are a couple good names that I can't decide between, I may ask for your input before picking, okay?
