Easter Dinner Preparations!

Behold, The Homemade Noodles: (if you don't know what these are or how to eat them, find a Midwest grandma and get yourself educated!)  *hint* mashed potatoes required!

Adding the leaf to the dining room table wasn't enough...so we added another table!

Glass bottles, waiting for flowers. or flowering tree branches (somehow a little more acceptable to steal from the neighborhood!)

New napkins b/c we didn't have enough...in 3 simple steps: (find old table cloth w/ holes/stains, cut into napkin-sized squares, fold over edges and hem!)



And just b/c I love it and don't think it made it on the blog yet....my metal spice rack, finally stocked with the PERFECT vintage bottles (found at a yard sale and perfectly sized for the metal container thingie we hauled back from our Tennessee honeymoon!)


Sweet recent thrift store find (now hanging above my kitchen sink!)  You can't really tell from the photo, but it has the nicest hand-done resin finish!
The State Plates...*finally* hung up!  (L-R: MO, IN, OH...which, i guess is pretty much how they land on the map as well!)
Sweet Christmas present from my sister....Handblown glass balls....finally hung as suncatchers in the dining room windows!

I've also been working on Etsy treasures....so here's a sneak peek (actually, the first item below--i call her Kathy--is now available in the shop!)...and now I'm off to prep tomorrow's chickens and veggies!  Happy Easter!  He is Risen! (Somehow that first sentiment just falls very flat compared to the second...)

Spice Rack

Preparing for something needs not much elegance in every thing that you. I would prefer to have them simple, yet easy to manage. I believe having stuffs like spice rack makes every kitchen activities worth doing in less time.
