Peek at what my personal chef made us for Easter breakfast today! Isn't that swell of her? We had waayyyy too much food for four people. It's a trait that I've inheirted from my dear Mother. She always way overcooks but the whole key to her parties and get togethers is variety, plus everyone brings something, much like today. My dear friend Linda brought a ton of things for our brunch so I really can't take credit for it all. Here's what was on the menu: French toast with blueberry sryup, biscuits with sausage milk gravy (it's a Southern thing..and delicious too I might add), Bacon, Ham/hashbrowns/cheese/egg casserole, home made rasberry danishes, mixed fruit, brie, mini cream puffs, and lots of coffee!
Can you tell which items are thrifted in that picture? No? okay here's the list:
•Yellow bowl 1.00
•Napkin holder .25
•Ceramic Heart Dish 2.00
•Flower plates (biscuits are on this) and cups..plus theres more plates not featured 10 pieces altogether 2.00 for all
•White Fabric (part of of my 5 bags of fabric last fall for 10.00)
•All the silverware and spatula (50 cents for a bag of it plus another .25 for a ton of utensils
•Red Sea China scalloped platter (french toast are on this) 3.00 (part of a 4 piece set I bought yesterday for 12.00 total)
Not too shabby huh?? :)
I spent the majority of the day yesterday with Mop and Glo and Mr. Vacuum, rearranging the living room, adding a few spring touches to lighten up my house ( I picked out sage green, oranges, creams, and yellows and it's really too dark now...I'm regretting those choices), so here's a peek at one side of the living room. Can you tell which items are thrifted in this pic?? Okay here is the run down:
•yellow flowered fabric 1.00
•wire heart candle (cage?) holder .50
•White/wicker barstools (2 of them) 15.00 for both
•wooden side table 2.00
•blue vase .25
•wicker basket on the floor .50
•2 Janet Evanovich paperbacks .25 each
•pink holder on the side table .50
•glass table (free)
Ummm...pretty much everything I have is Thrifted!!!!! This is how I've redone my house after the fire, so I guess you could say I thrift for a purpose. The couch is new, although it's not my dream couch, it was affordable. I had so much to replace that I really couldn't pick top of the line anything but I can make a dollar turn into 50 when I want to (ummm...not when I go to Michael's) but when I 'm redecorating I can..LOL).
I've been busted! DS caught me this morning putting Easter eggs outside for his annual Easter Egg hunt. I woke up at 6:30, started cooking breakfast because my guests were arriving at 9 and before I knew it, it was 8:00. SH*T, I forgot to hide his basket ( I had made the baskets for kids Friday nite so it was made up, just not hid)! I ran around on tippy toes not to wake him and hid his basket, then I realized, dang! I didn't hide the eggs EITHER. What kind of Easter Bunny am I??? So I grabbed my jacket, it was a brisk 26 degrees this morning...bye bye flowers...they're frozen...ran around the yard hiding the eggs, here, there, everywhere, when all of a sudden, Josh opens the door and screams, "I KNEW IT!! I KNEW IT!! YOU'RE the Easter Bunny!!!!" Dang! Busted. The charade is over. It's kinda sad...but it's also kind of a relief! LOL
Here's DS and I this morning. I really really really hate this picture of me. It shows how fat my face is getting....bleck..bleck.bleck. Anywhoo...he looks so sweet, I had to share. I look at this pic and remind myself to keep my hands out of his basket!
That's all the news today at Sweet Repeats, I hope you and yours had a wonderful day today. Make each day count. Create, invent, believe, and love.
