Has Spring Arrived?
What a lovely sunny day we are enjoying today! It really lifts the spirits & for the first time in months it was actually enjoyable wandering down the garden to feed the chickens with scraps of bread & leftover pasta. Lots of daffodils are pushing their way upwards too so maybe spring is finally on it's way!
Speaking of spring - aren't the colours on this glassware Springy & Eastery?
Yesterday afternoon our village committee organised an afternoon tea at the village hall in aid of Arthritis Research - lots of people baked cakes & made sandwiches, the tables were decorated with blue checked cloths & pots of yellow primroses & a talented young lady played some relaxing music for everyone. It all went down very well & we raised a nice little sum for charity.
A while ago, before I broke my finger, I had volunteered to make the cup cakes. As it's a bit awkward doing things with one hand Mr C had to step in to help - he even helped do the cake decorating too! Before I whipped them off to the tea yesterday I piled them up on some of the vintage cake glass stands that I have been gathering together for the Spring Vintage & Handmade Fair - don't they look pretty all together?
I also made the egg mayonnaise for the sandwiches & everyone was commenting on how delicious they were - thanks to our happy hens of course. As a reward they received all the bread crusts to thank them for their efforts!
