Last year we celebrated Easter twice, on Easter Sunday and again two weeks later so that my son Chris and my DIL Zhenia could be here. We decided to combine my son Bobby's BDay, Mother's Day, and Cinco Di Mayo all together with our belated Easter celebration. The table was set for spring and Easter but for whatever reason I didn't do a post on this occasion. So I thought I would share the pictures with you today.
The china is Mikasa's Imari Bouquet, a pretty floral pattern that I found at Goodwill near where I worked at that time. The cabbage bowls are hand painted ceramics from the 1980's.
The bunnies were used two weeks earlier for the first Easter table and just reused with a crafty clay pot centerpiece.
As usual my two BFF's were watching every move that I made - Cheetah
(doesn't he have the sweetest face?)
and the Black Prince.
Remember to thrift on ladies, thrift on, you never know what you will find. Case in point - Earlier this week I was at the Goodwill store near where I live. There was a cart of items that were just priced and waiting to be put on the shelves. As I walked up to the cart there was a lady picking up a Lladro figurine of a boy and a girl on a teeter totter in pristine condition, it was marked $8.00. This lady and I chattered for a good ten minutes about our Goodwill finds before she checked out right before me (she was so excited about her find) and we continued to chatter about the figurine while the cashier rang up her purchases. When I came home I looked the Lladro figurine up on Ebay. The ones listed there for sale there were priced from the $160.00 dollar range to upwards of $300.00...... Just sayin, thrift on........
