Oh, it’s so nice to be sitting here at my own desk and writing my blog rather than in an airport or a hotel … but I have wonderful news to share with you about our recent trip to Brazil — and I’m hoping to do that for Met Monday.
Today, because I’m still trying to catch up at home, I’m going to share last year’s Easter tablescape with you. Keep in mind, it was pre-blog days (which means pre- learning camera tricks), but I hope you might still enjoy it.
There were three of us around the table last Easter. As I told you HERE, Renaissance Man’s then 89-year-old mother was visiting us from Texas — almost certainly the last trip she would ever make to our home in Tennessee. I wanted her to once again see some of the treasures she had already passed on to us. You saw this sweet demitasse set in the previous post.

She loves pink, so I decided to start with a heavy vintage pink damask tea cloth and napkins. Then I added the Franciscan Desert Rose dishes that once belonged to her … a gift from a church her husband once pastored. Renaissance Man was the only child left at home by that time, so the dishes came to us.
Beautiful Easter morning tulips and Lenten Rose from Renaissance Man’s garden …
One of my favorite vintage basket design centerpiece doilies …
And a cross ornament tucked in — because Easter means nothing without the Cross.
I pray you know that …
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.(I Peter 1:3)
Happy Easter and great rejoicing as we celebrate the RISEN Lord!
