Mother Earth and Betty Crocker!


I thought I would post a few pictures of my
Earth Day tablescape 
from last year.

It was such a fun tablescape to create.
It's one that I think I will re-create,
some summer evening,
once we are "settled" in to 
the new digs.
I come from a long line of hardy people
that have long loved, appreciated and
nurtured the earth.
Thankfully, those ideals were passed down,
and I hope I am doing my part to
pass them to the next generation.

My favorite 'earthy' quote is an old 
Native American proverb:
"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors,
we borrow it from our children."
The Native Americans understood LONG 
before the rest of us caught on!
To see my entire tablescape for Earth day from last year
Other things I am doing on my 
day off....
Starting my desserts for 
Easter Sunday.
Among those desserts....
the miniature cupcakes
turned pushups....
which you can see here.
Lots and lots of cupcakes...
for lots and lots of pushups.
Better get back to work!
I have linked with Funky Junk Interiors. Check out the goodies!

  1. YOur Earth Day tablescape from last year is wonderful. The globe looks so natural upon the grapevine wreth. The delicate embroidery on the napkins lends a fineness to the entire tablescape.

    It would be great if you posted some photos of your Easter Sunday delights to Seasonal Sundays.

  7. The globe makes a perfect centrepiece! And I love the look of the cutlery held together by the twiggy vines.
