Mr. Blue Bird on my Pitcher...

This pretty little pitcher was given to me this weekend.. isn't it lovely? It sits on top of my kitchen cabinets.. I wonder what he sees in there? A little worm perhaps? The plate is a summer plate. Something that is not coming quite fast enough!

Also this large, vintage (or antique) tomato cookie jar! Isn't it so much fun?! Just perfect for my red and white kitchen!

And this lovely birdie I purchased from Kathy. She has one little bird left in her Etsy Shop. Yes, the snow is still here.. you can see a glimpse of it out the kitchen window. We joked yesterday that the only way we could have an outside Easter Egg Hunt was if the eggs were left white and we just threw them into the snowbanks.

I hope everyone of you had a lovely Easter and enjoyed the time with your families!

I roasted boneless leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary. It smelled so fabulous cooking in the oven.. also we had a spiral cut ham, asparagus, homemade bread, carrots, salad, and scalloped potatoes. To finish off, we enjoyed a lemon meringue pie and coconut cream pie. I wanted to take some pictures but I figured my family would think I had lost my rocker!!

Hi Abbie, sounds like your Easter was wonderful:>) I would love the recipe for the leg of lamb. I have some in the freezer and have been looking for a new way to cook it, we usually do a middle eastern stew with it. I LOVE the bluebird pitcher. Bluebirds are just so beautiful! So glad the little red bird found a good home too:>)

Mmmh that food sounds sooo delicious.....makes me hungry....
We have snow coming down again too, looks like spring takes it time.
That bird is so lovely and the cookie jar, you are right, perfect for your kitchen!
We had a fun Easter. Lars had a blast searching for his presents and was so excited that the Easter bunny was finally here!
Smiles, Anke ;)

So, Abbie, your family doesn't know about us yet? LOL!

Great gifts for your kitchen...that vintage cookie jar fits in so nicely.

Well we know that this is the last Easter that we'll see this early in our lifetimes, but I really hope not to see another one with this much snow left on the ground. It made everything a particular challenge including just getting out of the car into the house. (I have a north facing drive and it's ice laden. No amount of sand and salt that can touch it. Maybe I'll have to get out there with the ice chipper...oh joy unspeakable.)

What a lovely gift ...beautiful pitcher! I can't help thinking that your new birdie would look very homey and contented sitting on a few of your lovely fabric eggs (maybe a scaled down version?)

I took your poll - yep - I'm one of the impatient ones.

Your Easter sounded wonderful and while there is still snow (here too), you are bringing spring, summer and sunshine indoors. All of your things are so beautiful!
